A NOTE ON THE AUTHOR OF
The Wandering Jew
EUGENE SUE
(1804-1857)
Time and again physicians and seamen have made
noteworthy reputations as novelists. But it is rare in
the annals of literature that a man trained in both
professions should have gained his greatest fame
as a writer of novels. Eugene Sue began his career
as a physician and surgeon, and then spent six
years in the French Navy. In 1830, when he
returned to France, he inherited his father's rich
estate and was free to follow his inclination to write.
His first novel, "Plick et Plock", met with an
unexpected success, and he at once foreswore the
arts of healing and navigation for the precarious life
of a man of letters. With varying success he
produced books from his inexhaustible store of
personal experiences as a doctor and sailor. In
1837, he wrote an authoritative work on the FrenchNavy, "Histoire de la marine Francaise".
More and more the novel appealed to his
imagination and suited his gifts. His themes ranged
from the fabulous to the strictly historical, and he
became popular as a writer of romance and
fictionized fact. His plays, however, were persistent
failures. When he published "The Mysteries of
Paris", his national fame was assured, and with the
writing of "The Wandering Jew" he achieved world-
wide renown. Then, at the height of his literary
career, Eugene Sue was driven into exile after
Louis Napoleon overthrew the Constitutional
Government in a coup d'etat and had himself
officially proclaimed Emperor Napoleon III. The
author of "The Wandering Jew" died in banishment
five years later.
