François-Michel-Chrétien Deschamps

François-Michel-Chrétien Deschamps (1683 near Troyes – 10 November 1747, Paris) was an 18th-century French playwright.

A cavalry lieutenant, later employed in finance, Deschamps wrote several tragedies, of which one, ''Caton d’Utique'' (1715), was successful; the others, ''Antiochus et Cléopâtre'' (1717), ''Artaxerxès'' (1735), ''Méduse'' (1739) weren't.

We also owe Deschamps ''Recherches sur le théâtre français'' (1735, 3 vol. in-8°). Provided by Wikipedia
