Jules Laforgue
Birth: Aug. 16, 1860
Death: Aug. 20, 1887

Poet. Associated with the French Symbolists, he was one of the first poets to write in free verse. His collections include "Les Complaintes" (1885), "L'Imitation de Notre-Dame la lune" (1886), "Le Concile feerique" (1886), and "Moralites legendaires" (1887). Laforgue was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, to French parents, and settled in Paris with his mother in 1866. He died of tuberculosis four days after his 27th birthday, and most of his work was published posthumously. Laforgue's poetry had a greater influence on American and British authors (such as T. S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, James Joyce, and Hart Crane) than on his fellow countrymen. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
