Charles Péguy


French author, poet and philosopher. Raised by his mom, an impoverished chair mender, he had limited education and two years in military service by 1893, before he was able to study philosophy in Paris. Quitting the university, he and his wife opened the Librairie Socialiste in the Latin Quarters. His struggle to support Dreyfus left him disenchanted with the Socialist Party who did not stand up for the Dreyfus case. In 1900 he founded the "Fortnightly Notebook," a periodical that published significant writers and exerted a deep influence on intellectual life; the paper ran for 15 years.

Peguy married Charlotte Baudouin in 1897. He was killed in action in WW I on 9/5/1914.
