Jean Aicard

Biography

French poet, novelist, and dramatist, best known for his poems of the Provence region.

As a young man Aicard studied law but abandoned it to devote himself to literature. His first book of poetry, Jeunes croyances (1867; “Beliefs of a Youth”), showed the influence of the Romantic poet Alphonse de Lamartine and was well received upon its appearance. He went to Paris after the Franco-German War and published Les Rebellions et les apaisements (1871; “Rebellions and Reassurances”). Poèmes de Provence, a sensitive evocation of the Provençal scene, followed in 1874; two years later La Chanson de l’enfant (“The Child’s Song”) was published. Both volumes received awards from the French Academy, as did his later poem “Lamartine.” Of his 14 plays the most successful was Le Père Lebonnard (“Father Lebonnard”), first performed in 1889. Most of his novels, the best of which is Maurin des maures(1908; “Maurin of the Moors”), are also based on Provençal life. Aicard became a member of the French Academy in 1909.

He died 13 May 1921, Paris
