Louis Ferdinand Céline


(Louis-Ferdinand Destouches)
France (1894 - 1961)

Louis-Ferdinand Céline was the pen name of French writer and doctor Louis-Ferdinand Destouches (27 May 1894 - 1 July 1961). The name Céline was chosen after his grandmother's forename. Céline is considered one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century, developing a new style of writing that modernized both French and World literature. He remains, however, a controversial figure due to statements published during the Second World War.
