Florian was elected member of the Académie Française in 1788. In addition to his fables, he wrote plays, novels, short stories, tales in prose or verse, a very free translation of Cervantes' Don Quixote and numerous poems, most of which have been set to music (more than two hundred scores).
The fables by Florian are unanimously considered the best after those of Jean de La Fontaine. The critic Dussault (1769-1824) wrote: “All those who wrote fables since La Fontaine seem to have built small huts on the model and at the foot of a building that rises to the heavens: M. de Florian's hut is built with more elegance and solidity than the others, and dominates them by several degrees...”
Florian was born in Sauve in the Gard department.
