Auguste Brizeux (1803–1858)

Brizeux, Julien Auguste Pélage (brē-zė’). A French poet (1803–58); born at Lorient. He made his début with the charming idyl ‘Marie’ (1831), in which are seen all the graces of perfect poetic form conjoined with tenderest sentiment. His reputation as a true poet was well sustained by the works which followed; ‘The Bretons’ and ‘Stories in Verse,’ both crowned by the Academy. He composed some verses also in his native Breton speech. His ‘Complete Works’ are in four volumes.
