He informs the author of a novel that he hopes to make it appear in the magazine "La grande marseillaise" where he writes himself, but the state of his eyes, damaged by his stay in prison, did not allow him to read it in full. It all depends on the events. Victor henri de rochefort-luçay (born 30 January 1831 in Paris and died 30 June 1913 in Aix-les-bains, better known as henri rochefort) is a French journalist, theatre writer and politician. He was deported to Noumea (New Caledonia) in 1873, with Michel's praise, and escaped the following year. A Boulangist, he was sentenced a second time to deportation, in 1889, in absentia, following the baker's gall in his exile.
A great polemist in the pages of his newspapers (the lantern, the great Marseilles, the intransigent), he defends radical and even extremist political options (anticlerical, nationalist, favorable to the commune, baker, socialist and antidreyfusard). His commitment earned him the nickname of "the man of the twenty duels and thirty trials", as well as condemnations, in particular to the noumea bagne, of which, being unique, he managed to escape in 1874.This inspired in 1880 a painting by Edward manet entitled "the escape of rockfort", where he was seen in a boat in the open sea.
