Arthur Arnould
Arthur Arnould

French member of the First International & the Paris Commune, anarchist & companion of Michael Bakunin. Born in Dieuze (the Moselle) April 17, 1833; November 26, 1895.

After his university studies, Arthur Arnould became a journalist for a variety of opposition newspapers.

In 1871 Arnould was elected a member of the Paris Commune of Paris, delegated to teaching. Here he opposed the Committee of Public Safety, seeing in it the nascent outline of a dictatorship.

Arthur Arnould After the crushing of the Commune, Arnould took refuge in Switzerland. In Lugano, he joined with the anarchist communist Michael Bakunin (Arnould ended up preserving Bakunin's papers & files when the latter died on July 1, 1876). Here he also wrote for the "Bulletin of the Jurassic Federation" as well as other libertarian & revolutionary socialist newspapers.

Reurning to France after the general amnesty, Arnould gradually drifted away from the anarchist movement & became involved in esotericism. Arnould is the author of L'Etat et la Révolution (1877), Histoire populaire et parlementaire de la Commune de Paris. 3 vols. Bruxelles, Kistemaeckers, (1878), & many novels written under the name of A. Matthey.
