Writer born to a poor family who left school at 13. His experiences as a would be poet in Paris led to his writing 'Scenes de la vie de Boheme' in which he portrayed himself as the poet Rodolphe. The success of these sketches led to fame and reasonable fortune; they were the basis for Puccini's opera 'La Boheme'.
