Henri Frédéric Amiel (27 September 1821 – 11 May 1881) was a Swiss good savant, artist, and commentator.


Born in Geneva in 1821, he was descended from a Huguenot family headed to Switzerland by the disavowal of the Edict of Nantes.

In the wake of losing his folks at an early age, Amiel voyaged broadly, ended up noticeably imply with the scholarly pioneers of Europe, and made a unique investigation of German rationality in Berlin. In 1849 he was selected educator of style at the institute of Geneva, and in 1854 moved toward becoming teacher of good rationality.

These arrangements, gave by the just party, denied him of the help of the refined party, whose support ruled all the way of life of the city. This disconnection motivated the one book by which Amiel is as yet known, the Journal Intime ("Private Journal"), which, distributed after his demise, acquired an European notoriety. It was converted into English by British essayist Mary Augusta Ward at the proposal of scholastic Mark Pattison.

Albeit unassuming in volume of yield, Amiel's Journal picked up a sensitivity that the creator had neglected to get in his life. Notwithstanding the Journal, he created a few volumes of verse and composed examinations on Erasmus, Madame de Stael and different scholars. His broad correspondence with Égérie, his dream name for Louise Wyder, was safeguarded and distributed in 2004.
