Fernand Crommelynck

Crommelynck, Fernand (fĕrnäNˈ krôməlăNkˈ) [key], 1885?–1970, Belgian dramatist, b. Paris. Crommelynck's first great success was a tragic farce about jealousy, Le Cocu magnifique (1921, tr. The Magnificent Cuckold, 1966). Other plays that reveal his expert craftsmanship and strong lyric power include Le Sculpteur de masques [The Sculptor of Masks] (1908), Le Marchand de regrets [The Puerile Lovers] (1913), and Carine (1930).
