Claude Prosper Jolyot de Crbillon (1707-1777) was a French novelist. He was the son of a famous tragedian, Prosper Jolyot de Crbillon. He received a Jesuit education at the elite school Louis-le-grand. Early on he composed various light works, including plays for the Italian Theatre in Paris, and published a short tale called Le Sylphe in 1730. The publication of Tanza et Neadarne: Histoire Japonaise (1734), which contained veiled attacks on the Papal bull Unigenitus, the cardinal de Rohan and others, landed him briefly in the prison at Vincennes. His novel Les garements du Coeur et de l'Esprit was published in 1735 and although he continued to edit it in 1738, it was never finished. Meanwhile, he published La Nuit et le Moment (1745), Ah Quel Conte and Les Heureux Orphelins (1754). He was forced to sell his large library in 1757 and eventually found steady income as a royal censor (like his father) in 1759. In 1768 and 1772 he published his last two novels, Lettres de la Duchesse de *** au duc de *** and Lettres Athniennes.
