French poet, novelist and playwright.

Martinet, a Communist and pacifist, opposed the First World War from its outset: his antiwar poems Les temps maudits were banned in France during the war, but circulated secretly: helped by Marguerite Rosmer, he sent copies on thin paper to soldiers at the front. La Maison à l'Abri, a novel about the First World War, was runner-up for the Prix Goncourt in 1919. Martinet's poem La Nuit, completed in 1919, was published in 1922 with a preface by Leon Trotsky, whom Martinet had befriended when Trotsky was in Paris. Martinet's series Les Cahiers du Travail [Labour Notebooks] published pamphlets by Victor Serge.

He died 18 February 1944.
