"Adolphe: a Story Found Among the Papers of an Unknown Writer" is the title of a French novel written in 1816 by Benjamin Constant. It follows the story of the titular character, a kind of sad 22-year-old who falls in love with an older woman named Ellénore. It was adapted into a film of the same name in 2002. The book is thought to be semi-autobiographical.
