Mauriac, Francois 1885 1970, French writer. Mauriac achieved success in 1922 and 1923 with Le Baiser au lepreux and Genitrix (tr. of both in The Family, 1930).

Generally set in or near his native Bordeaux, his novels are imbued with his profound, though nonconformist, Roman Catholicism. His characters exist in a tortured universe- nature is evil and man eternally prone to sin.

His major novels are The Desert of Love (1925, tr. 1929), Therese (1927, tr. 1928), and Vipers Tangle (1932, tr. 1933). Other works include The Frontenacs (1933, tr. 1961) and Woman of the Pharisees (1941, tr. 1946)- a life of Racine (1928) and of Jesus (1936, tr. 1937)- and plays, notably Asmodee (1938, tr.

1939). Also a distinguished essayist, Mauriac became a columnist for Figaro after World War II. Collections of his articles and essays include Journal, 1932 39 (1947, partial tr. Second Thoughts, 1961), Prousts Way (1949, tr. 1950), and Cain, Where Is Your Brother? (tr. 1962). Mauriac received the 1952 Nobel Prize in Literature.
