Maurice Leblanc was a French author during the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century. He lived in Paris, and his literary legacy consists of novels and short stories. Though he wrote two well-received science fiction novels, he was most famous for his gentleman thief adventure series, Arsene Lupin.
Thought to be based on the life of anarchist Marius Jacob, who had a very public trial in 1905, Lupin is a whip-smart, witty, and roguishly handsome master of disguise. Leblanc was compared to Arthur Conan Doyle throughout his career, and he even wrote a series of novellas where Lupin is introduced to and subsequently outwits the famous detective, Sherlock Holmes.
Arsene Lupin has inspired many spin-offs including the hugely successful Japanese manga series "Lupin III" and a new Netflix series "Lupin" starring Omar Sy.
Maurice Leblanc (1864-1941) est devenu grâce à ArséneLupin l'un des écrivains les plus populaires de France. A ses débuts, il a été soutenu par Guy de Maupassant, Léon Bloy, Jules Renard ou encore Alphonse Daudet.
