Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris: Authors (and a Few Other Notables) Buried There

It was a stunningly beautiful day as my sister and I set off to Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. We had a list of authors I hoped to find in the cemetery. I also had a couple of other folks I hoped to find.

Oscar Wilde.
The Importance of Being Earnest.
The Picture of Dorian Gray.

Jean De La Fontaine.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
The Social Contract.


Frederic Chopin.

Honoré de Balzac.
Père Goriot.

Gertrude Stein.
The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas.

Marcel Proust.
Swann's Way.

Heloise and Abelard.

Jim Morrison.

World War I Memorial.

I also saw the graves of Sarah Bernhardt, Édith Piaf, Modigliani, Moliere, and Isadora Duncan.
