About the Author

Roger Gilbert-Lecomte (May 18, 1907 in Reims, France-December 31, 1943 in Paris) was a French avant-garde poet and co-founder (with Rene Daumal, Roger Vailland, and Josef Sima) of the artistic group and magazine Le Grand Jeu. The group, associated with surrealists, was "excommunicated" from the movement by Andre Breton. Gilbert-Lecomte experimented with drugs, in particular morphine, for both artistic and sociological reasons. As was predicted in his poetry, the writer's death was the result of an infection caused from dirty hypodermic needles.
