French poet and dramatist.
Bouilhert volume of poems entitled Fossiles attracted considerable attention, on account of the attempt therein to use science as a subject for poetry. These poems were included also in Festons et astragales (1859).
As a dramatist he secured a success with his first play, Madame de Monlarcy (1856), which ran for seventy-eight nights at the Odéon; and Hélène Peyron (1858) and L'Oncle Million (1860) were also favorably received. But of his other plays, some of them of real merit, only theConjuration d'Amboise (1866) met with any great success.
He was a school fellow of Gustave Flaubert, to whom he dedicated his first work, Miloenis (1851) . He was in very close relationship with him. He read every week the new draft chapter of Madame Bovary.
Bouilhet died on 18 July 1869, at Rouen
