On this day in 1924 the French writer and man of letters, Anatole France died. In 1921 the Nobel Committee praised France for having "nobility of style, a profound human sympathy, grace, and a true Gallic temperament"; when he died, the Surrealists asked for permission to slap his corpse and then put it "in an empty quayside box of the old books which he loved so much and thrown into the Seine.
