Capitan Fracassa is a French novel by Théophile Gautier. Promised to the public in 1836 but finally published in 1863. The novel represents a different era and is a project that Gautier had wanted to complete earlier in this youth. It is centered on a soldier named Fracasse whose adventures portray bouts of chivalry, courage and a sense of adventure. Gautier places the story in his favourite historical era, that of Louis XIII. It is a typically described as a cloak-and-dagger fairy tale where everyone lives happily ever after.
