Paul Toupin, dramatist, essayist, educator (born 7 December 1918 in Montréal, QC; died 8 March 1993 in Montréal). His plays, classical in language and structure and universal in theme, have been more appreciated by critics than by audiences in Québec. Brutus (1952) is one of the few tragedies ever composed in French Canada and was televised in 1953. Le Mensonge (1960) and Chacun son amour (1961) were performed for television only, and Toupin turned thereafter to essays such as L'Écrivain et son théâtre (1964), and autobiographical memoirs. His Souvenirs pour demain (1960) was awarded the prize for best foreign publication in French from the Académie française in 1960.
