Sue's early stories, among them Plick et Plock , Atar-Gull , and La Salamandre , were based on his experiences at sea, and attracted readers by their sensational exoticism. In Le Morne-au-diable the protagonist was a female pirate. The French author Isidore Ducasse took his pen name from it for his notorious work, Les Chants de Maldoror In Arthur and Mathilde Sue still depicted contemporary 'high life', but then turned his attention to the social ills, which marked the emergence of the Industrial Revolution in France.
After the Revolution year of , Sue was elected a Socialist deputy to the National Assembly, where his idleness was criticized. The new constitution lasted only a short time. He died in exile in Annecy, Savoy, on August 3, As a storyteller Sue was exaggeratedly sentimental, but he had a strong dramatic sense.
In the early s, Sue had been converted to socialism under the influence of von Fourier and Proudhom. In the following works Sue did not hide his belief in the social purpose of art, but in spite of the propaganda, his largely bourgeois public devoured his stories about the "cruelties of capitalism.
The disguises of Rudolph, Prince of Geroldstein, give him an entry into the lower strata of society, just as his title gives him access to the highest circles. On his way to the aristocratic ball he is by no means engrossed in the contrasts of contemporary life; it is the contrasts of his own disguises that he finds piquant. Sue started to write for feuilletons - the word referring originally to the detachable section of a French daily newspaper - to pay off the debts which he had gathered while spending his inheritance.
Sue's works had appeared also in La Presse , a liberal paper, which published Balzac 's stories. Disguised as a painter of fans, he roams on his moral crusade the slums adjoining Notre Dame Cathedral.

However, Sue did not care about the Latin Quarter or theaters, and Rodolphe is not even French, but comes from a small German state. Rodolphe represents the forces of good, and fights with his immense physical strength, wealth and intelligence against such neo-Gothic villains as a multiple murderer with a mutilated face and a monstrous whore-mistress.
GUILLAUME DE LORRIS
Marx wrote of his character in in The Holy Family : "Rudolphe The representation of good and evil has stamped itself so deeply in his feeble brain that he believes in the physical existence of Satan, and would like to catch him alive, as the famous prof. Sack of Bonn. On the other hand, he tries to reproduce on a small scale the devil's antithesis, God.
After many adventures, Rodolphe saves her from the evil notary Jacques Ferrand, and when her true identity is finally revealed, she turns out to be Rodolphe's long-lost daughter. In America Edgar Allan Poe admired its tense, dramatic situations, but saw Sue's writings as a "paradox of childish folly and consummate skill. Colby, Alice M. Whitehead, A. Diverres et F.
