Emblematic of the genesis of heritage awareness in the nineteenth century, Prosper Mérimée at once embraced a career as a man of letters and historian committed to the protection of national memory. Author of a prolific and eclectic literary production: novels, poems, travel notes, historical essays ... the original editions of his works are now relatively rare and sought.

In 1825, The Theatre of Clara Gazul, marked by hispanophilie in the zeitgeist, illustrates brilliant literary debut. Accustomed salons of the Restoration, Merimee leads a mundane life which gradually approach the power. Through relationships of his father Leonora Mérimée (1757-1836) Permanent Secretary of the School of Fine Arts, it accesses in 1831 as chief of the office of the General Secretariat of the Navy, then in the direction of the office of Count 'Argout, Minister of Commerce. Once a Knight of the Legion of Honour, the same year the amenities of official recognition will facilitate the publication of his works for the rest of his career. On May 27, 1834, Adolphe Thiers, Interior Minister, appoints the Inspector General of Historic Monuments after Ludovic Vitet.

Letters in 1843 and then to the French Academy in 1844, he published at the same time the history of Arsène Guillot whose plot mixes love, deceit and unworthy religious sentiment many of his colleagues.

Longtime friend of Eugénie de Montijo and close to Napoleon III during the Second Empire, Merimee agrees to enter the Senate under the encouragement of the Empress. The decades of the reign of Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte erected in Mérimée influential politician. therefore more focused on historical research that literary invention, those glorious years will be marked by the publication of various studies slavophiles: Episode of the history of Russia. The False Demetrius (1853), The Cossacks of old (1865), History of the reign of Peter the Great (1864, 1867-1868).

Tired by illness and a life of deeper commitments, Merimee goes out on the French Riviera September 23, 1870, where he was accustomed to retire every winter since 1856.
