1656, Aug 31723, May 11
a French dramatist. He secured the patronage of the influential duchesse de Bouillon by dedicating Arminius to her, and in 1685 he scored his first success with Andronic, which disguised under other names the tragic story of Don Carlos and Elizabeth of France. The piece made a great sensation, but Campistron's treatment is weak, and he failed to avail himself of the possibilities inherent in his subject. He wrote several tragedies and two comedies, one of which, Le Jaloux Désabusé, has been considered by some judges to be his best work.
