Known as a careful writer, refined, loyal to a tradition of Atticism and purity of form that is typical of classic French prose. The novels Le Lys rouge (1894) and Le jardin d'Epicure (1895) earned him a very wide international success. His most acclaimed novels were the tetralogy "Histoire Contemporaine." In 1921 he was awarded the Nobel Prize.
