Comte de Lautreamont. 1846-1870. Uruguayan-born French poet

"Arithmetic! Algebra! Geometry! Grandiose trinity! Luminous triangle! Whoever has not known you is without sense!"

Comte de Lautréamont was the pseudonym of Isidore Lucien Ducasse (April 4, 1846 – November 24, 1870), an Uruguayan-born French poet. His only works, Les Chants de Maldoror and Poésies, had a major influence on modern literature, particularly on the Surrealists and the Situationists. Les Chants de Maldoror is often described as the first surrealist book. He died at the young age of 24 years old.
