Émile Augier (Guillaume Victor Émile Augier) (gēyōm´ vēktôr´ āmēl´ ōzhyā´), 1820–89, French dramatist. His plays, early examples of realism, satirize the social foibles of his time and uphold the values of bourgeois family life. His chief work, Le Gendre de M. Poirier (1854, tr. 1915), was written with Jules Sandeau.
