Synopsis Pierre Jules Theophile Gautier was a French poet dramatist novelist journalist and literary critic. He was a contributor to various journals most notably to La Presse. He was director of Revue de Paris from 1851-1856. During this time Gautier left La Presse and became a journalist for Le Moniteur Universel. Gautier acquired the editorship of influential review L'Artiste in 1856. In 1862 he was elected chairman of the Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts. During the Franco-Prussian war Gautier made his way back to Paris. He remained with his family throughout the invasion and the aftermath of the Commune eventually dying in 1872 of a cardiac disease. The Mummy's Foot -- the title story in this collection -- is a gothic tale published in French as 'Le Pied de Momie.' It relates the adventures of a man who buys the 3000 year old foot of Princess Hermonthis in a Parisian curio shop. Gautier has a fascination with Ancient Egypt as well as an obsession with mortality decay and the passage of time.When Princess Hermonthis takes him to her time and place of burial he asks for her hand from her father who flatly refuses because of his concern for durability and the transience of the young man's existence compared to that of a three-thousand year old girl. Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende Pierre Jules Theophile Gautier (1811 - 1872) was a French poet dramatist novelist journalist and art and literary critic. While an ardent defender of Romanticism Gautier's work is difficult to classify and remains a point of reference for many subsequent literary traditions such as Parnassianism Symbolism Decadence and Modernism. Early in his life Gautier befriended Gerard de Nerval who influenced him greatly in his earlier poetry and also through whom he was introduced to Victor Hugo. He shared in Hugo's dissatisfaction with the theatrical outputs of the time and the use of the word 'tragedy.' Gautier admired Honore de Balzac for his contributions to the development of French literature. Gautier was influenced greatly by his friends as well paying tribute to them in his writings. In fact he dedicated his collection of Dernieres Poesies to his many friends including Herbert Madame de la Grangerie Maxime Du Camp and Princess Mathilde Bonaparte.
