Known forFrench dramatist, poet.

Félix-Henri "Henry" Bataille (4 April 1872 in Nîmes – 2 March 1922 in Rueil-Malmaison[1]) was a French dramatist and poet. His works were popular between 1900 and the start of World War I.

Bataille's parents died when he was young.[2] He attended the École des Beaux-Arts and Académie Julian[3] to study painting, but started writing when he was 14. Henry wrote plays and poems, but after the success of his second play, La Lépreuse, he became a playwright exclusively. Bataille's early works explored the effects of passion on human motivation and how stifling the social conventions of the times could be. For example, Maman Colibri, is about a middle-aged woman's affair with a younger man. Later, Bataille would gravitate towards the theater of ideas and social drama.

Bataille was also a theorist of subconscious motivation. While he did not use his theories in most of his own works, he influenced later playwrights such as Jean-Jacques Bernard and the "school of silence".
