Jammes, Francis


Born Dec. 2, 1868, in Tournay; died Nov. 1, 1938, in Hasparren. French poet.

Beginning with his first verse collections (Six Sonnets, 1891, and Birth of a Poet, 1897) Jammes celebrated the French provinces. Many of his books bear the imprint of Catholicism (From the Morning Angelus to the Evening Angelas, 1898; The Mourning of Spring, 1901; The Clearing in the Sky, 1906; and The Mother of God and the Sonnets, 1919). Jammes’ art is imbued with a yearning for the simplicity of everyday life. The cycles Quatrains (written between 1922 and 1925) are remarkable in their poetic quality. Jammes also wrote prose—novels (The Novel About the Hare, 1903, and others) and memoirs (Love, the Muses, and the Chase, 1922, and The Poet’s Caprices, 1923). Jammes was translated into Russian by I. Annenskii, V. Briusov, I. Ehrenburg, B. Livshits, and other writers.
