Philippe Ernest Godet (1850–1922)

Godet, Philippe Ernest (gō-dā’). A Swiss poet and historian of literature; born in Neuchâtel, April 23, 1850; died in 1922. As a poet he pleases, without stirring any profound depths, in such volumes as ‘A Handful of Rhymes,’ ‘First Poems,’ and ‘Realities.’ In prose he wrote: ‘The Literary History of French Switzerland,’ his greatest work, which won the French Academy’s Guérin prize; ‘Studies and Talks’; and a biography of Pierre Viret.
