The tale of his celebrated love affair with George Sand in 1833-1835 is told from his point of view in his autobiographical novel La Confession d'un Enfant du Siècle (The Confession of a Child of the Century) (1836), which was made into a 1999 film Children of the Century and a 2012 film The Confession of a Child of the Cenrury and is told from her point of view in her Elle et lui (1859).

Alfred Louis Charles de Musset was a French dramatist, poet, and novelist. After attempts at careers in medicine, law, drawing, English, and piano, he became one of the first Romantic writers. He was the librarian of the French Ministry of the Interior under the July Monarchy, but was dismissed from his post as librarian after the revolution of 1848. He was appointed librarian of the Ministry of Public Instruction during the Second Empire. Musset received the Légion d'Honneur on April 24, 1845, at the same time as Balzac, and was elected to the Académie Française in 1852.

About the Author:

Alfred Louis Charles de Musset-Pathay (1810 - 1857) was a French dramatist, poet and novelist. Along with his poetry, he is known for writing the autobiographical novel La Confession d'un enfant du siècle (The Confession of a Child of the Century). Musset was born in Paris. His family was upper-class but poor and his father worked in various key government positions, but never gave his son any money. His mother came from similar circumstances and her role as a society hostess - for example her drawing-room parties, luncheons and dinners held in the Musset residence - left a lasting impression on young Alfred. Early indications of Musset's boyhood talents were seen by his fondness for acting impromptu mini-plays based upon episodes from old romance stories he had read. Years later, elder brother Paul de Musset would preserve these and many other details, for posterity, in a biography on his famous younger brother.
