Charles Ferdinand Ramuz


French-speaking Swiss writer.

He was educated at the University of Lausanne. He taught briefly in nearby Aubonne, and then in Weimar, Germany. In 1903, he left for Paris and remained there until World War I, with frequent trips home to Switzerland. In 1903, he published Le petit village, a collection of poems.

In 1914, he returned to Switzerland, where he lived a reclusive life devoted to his writing.

He wrote the libretto for Igor Stravinsky's Histoire du soldat.

He died in Pully, near Lausanne on 23 May 1947. His likeness and an artistic impression of his works appear on the 200 Swiss francnote (in current use).

The Foundation C.F. Ramuz in Pully awards the Grand Prix C. F. Ramuz.
