Hero of the small town of Tarascon, Tartarin dreams of adventure and lion hunting. But that Africa is far who has never left home! The intrepid hunter finally embarks: he will manage to uncover a beast of the desert? Burlesque character but endearing, Tartarin is the kind of boastful Southerner who fooled himself as much as he deceives others. Where is join absurdity and truth, but "a truth beyond the Loire swelling, exaggerating, never lies, and tarasconne all the time."

Without ever losing a real affection for his character, Daudet Tartarin deployed all the resources of his wit and irony, creating one of the greatest comic types of French literature.
