About this product
- DescriptionCockerels and Vultures is a book for everyone interested in the poetry of the First World War. For almost 90 years this outstanding French poet of the First World War was unkwn in his own country. The chance finding of a slim and musty little volume of his poetry at a jumble sale in France in 2008 was a revelation to the finder. Granier was soon republished in France and astonished French readers. Though he is stylistically very different, some compare Granier with Guillaume Apollinaire. Granier stands comparison with the best of British war poets. Now English-speaking readers can encounter this remarkable talent through Ian Higgins' impressive translation.
- Author BiographyAlbert-Paul Granier was born in 1888 in Le Croisic on the Atlantic coast of Brittany. He was a talented sportsman, musician and poet. He qualified as a solicitor but compulsory national service in France required him to serve in the army from 1911 to 1913 where he trained as an artillery officer. He was recalled to the army in August 1914 and served on the Western Front. He became an airborne artillery observer and was shot down and killed over the battlefields of Verdun on 17 August 1917.
