Description

Apollinaire’s poetry reflects the heady years of artistic and intellectual ferment before the First World War. The most dynamic modernist French poet and the champion of the Cubist painters, he is remembered as much for his more traditional lyric poems as for the typographical experiments of his ‘calligrammes’. Subtle and complex, yet often direct, his poetry is still fresh and memorable.
