Abbe Prevost *

a.k.a. Antoine Francois Prevost D'Exiles

Author Code: FAPX

Born: Apr. 1, 1697 - Hesdin, France

Died: Nov. 25, 1763 - Chantilly, France

After two enlistments in the military, Prevost was ordained a priest in 1726 in the Benedictine Order (after having been dismissed from the Jesuits in 1721). He fled to England in 1728 and from there to Holland in 1730. Prevost was a prolific author, but is only remembered for his one important work, Manon Lescaut (1731) (Histoire du Chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut) which was to be used by Massenet in his opera Manon and Puccini's Manon Lescaut. The work was the final part of a seven-volume work entitled Memoires et aventures d'un homme de qualite qui s'est retire du monde (1728-31). Prevost left Holland and returned to England in 1735 to escape creditors, but was imprisoned for a time in London for forgery. He returned to France and was reconciled with the church.
