Xavier Forneret

Summary: Xavier Forneret (16 September 1809 in Beaune, Côte-d'Or – 7 August 1884) was a French writer, poet, playwright and journalist. Born in 1809 bourgeois family by the name Antoine Charles Ferdinand, he was one of the few members of the Romantic movement who never experienced poverty and could afford to publish his books himself. In his hometown, he became an advocate of the new art. Between 1837 and 1840 he lived in Paris. In 1835 he wrote two plays which were staged in Dijon. He paid for the staging, both were total commercial failures. During his years in Paris, he published books (with the text usually printed on one side of the paper only, in an enormously large font) which included poems, aphorisms, paradoxes, short prosaic pieces and maxims. He also published several short stories.
