Jules Vallès in Maisons-Laffitte, Yvelines (38), France: Literary Île-de-France #19

Jules Vallès (1832—85), a pseudonym of Jules Louis Joseph Vallez, was born in Puy-en-Velay (Haute-Loire). He was of the extreme left and created the paper Le Cri du peuple, which published eighty-three issues between 22 February and 23 May 1871. He was elected to the Commune de Paris 26 March and condemned to death in 1972. He went into exile in London between 1873 and 1880.

His most well known works of fiction are perhaps the autobiographical novels concerning the life of the main character whom he called Jacques Vingtras: L'Enfant (1879), Le Bachelier (1881), and L'Insurgé (1886).
