Nis p. 122. individualism were supplemented by L'Ennemi des lois (1892), and an admirable volume of impressions of travel, Du sang, de la volupte et de la mort (1893). His early books are written in an elaborate style and are often very obscure. Banes carried his theory of individualism into politics as an ardent partisan of General Boulanger. He directed a Boulangist paper at Nancy, and was elected deputy in 1889, retaining his seat in the legislature until 1893. His play, Une Journee parlementaire, was produced at the Comedie Francaise in 1894. In 1897 he began his trilogy, Le Roman de l'energie nationale, with the publication of Les Deracines. The series is a plea for local patriotism, and for the preservation of the distinctive qualities of the old French provinces. The first narrates the adventures of seven young Lorrainers, who set out to conquer fortune in Paris. Six of them survive in the second novel of the trilogy, L'A ppel an soldat (1900), which gives the history of Boulangism; the sequel, Leurs figures (1902), deals with the Panama scandals. Later works are: Scenes et doctrines du nationalisme (1902); Les Amities franQaises (1903), in which he urges the inculcation of patriotism by the early study of national history; Ce que j'ai vu es Rennes (1904); Au service de l'Allemagne (19o5), the experiences of an Alsatian conscript in a German regiment; Le Voyage de Spade (1906). M. Banes was admitted to the French Academy in 1906. See also R. Doumic, Les Jeunes (1896) ; J. Lionnet, L'Evolution des idees (1903) ; Anatole France, La Vie liledraire (4th series, 1892).
