Short biography
One of the most important francophone Mauritian literary figures of the first half of the century. Initially his work was influenced by Parnassianism, and then by a Gidean carnality and sensuality. Later his texts became musical, mystical, and spiritual, and the presence of Mauritius's varied cultural elements became important: e.g. Indian philosophy in Poèmes védiques (1941). In addition to numerous collections of poetry he wrote a cycle of novels, Pierre Flandre (1928-36), focused on a quest for origins. Plénitudes (1948) is his most famous collection of poetry.
