Tartarin de Tarascon

Tartarin de Tarascon by Alphonse Daudet
By: (1840-1897)

Qui n’a jamais entendu parler de Tartarin de Tarascon, le grand Tartarin, héros de Tarascon, chef des chasseurs de casquettes ?

Alphonse Daudet nous le présente, nous dépeint son « chez lui », ses habitudes, sa vie à Tarascon, qu’il va être amené à quitter pour une chasse au lion …

Il nous invite à le suivre en Algérie et à découvrir ses aventures burlesques.

(Introduction de Ezwa)

“Tartarin de Tarascon” tells the burlesque adventures of Tartarin, a local hero of Tarascon, a small town in southern France, whose invented adventures and reputation as a swashbuckler finally force him to travel to a very prosaic Algiers in search of lions.

PREFACE

The test of this edition is reprinted without alteration from that of the "Collection Guillaume" (E. Flammarion, Paris, publisher).

"Tartarin de Tarascon" should be read by high school students at the end of their second or in their third year and by college students at the end of the first or in the second year.

It is with great pleasure that I express my indebtedness for many suggestions to my friend Professor W.F. Giese of the University of Wisconsin.
