Everyone has heard of Napoleon Bonaparte and his countless military feats, but fewer people know him as a brilliant author. Napoleon, an inexhaustible reader, wrote a creative novel in the autumn 1795: Clisson and Eugénie. Though he wrote two creative pieces, Clisson and Eugénie is his most successful and important work of fiction.
The novel, published several times in France, is now a part of the Gallic Books edition with the assistance of Emilie Barthet, a graduate in French literature and an editor-in-chief of Napoleon Bonaparte’s correspondence, and Peter Hicks, an author and psychiatrist. Let’s considerClisson and Eugénie by Napoleon Bonaparte.

He becomes despondent and has nothing to live for until he notices two young women – Amelie and Eugénie – taking a stroll.
