Auguste de Villiers de L'Isle-Adam, known as the "Count", then (from 1846) the Marquis de Villiers de L'Isle-Adam, was a French writer of Breton origin2, born on November 7, 1838 in Saint-Brieuc and died on August 18, 1889 in Paris. Called Mathias by his family, simply Villiers by his friends, he used the first name of Auguste on the cover of some of his books.
Among his best-known works today are his Contes cruels (1883) and L'Ève future.
Villiers de L'Isle-Adam was also friends with Charles Baudelaire, Joris-Karl Huysmans, and Richard Wagner. With his fantastic novels and novellas, Villiers de L'Isle-Adam is considered one of the founders of French Symbolism. His novel L'Ève future is one of the first works of science fiction and at the same time a satire on science.
