Biography,He was a mediocre student and failed his baccalaureat with a zero for French.Francis Jammes by Jean Veber.The young authors first poems began to be read in Parisian literary circles around 1895, and they were appreciated for their fresh tone which broke considerably from symbolist tendencies of the period. Jammes fraternised with other writers, including Andre Gide (with whom he travelled to Algeria in 1896), Stephane Mallarme and Henri de Regnier. His most famous collection of poems — De langelus de laube a langelus du soir (From morning Angelus to evening Angelus) — appeared in 1897 in the Mercure de France, Le Deuil des Primeveres (The Mourning of Primulas) (1901) was also well received. While working up to that point as a notarys clerk, the author was thenceforth able to live from his writings. In 1905 Francis Jammes, influenced by the poet Paul Claudel with whom he became close, converted to Catholicism (in actuality a return to being a practicing Catholic) and his poetry became more austere and occasionally more dogmatic.In the eyes of Parisian literary circles, Francis Jammes was generally considered a solitary provincial who chose to live a life of retreat in his mountainous Pyrenees, and his poems never became entirely fashionable. The author sought nomination to the Academie francaise several times, but was never elected.Jammes was the original author of Georges Brassenss song La Priere (The Prayer). The lyrics were taken from the poem Les Mysteres douloureux (The Agonies of Christ) published in the collection LEglise habillee de feuilles (The Church Clothed in Leaves) (1906), Brassens changed some of the words to make the text more rhythmic.Jammes was known to have an ardent passion for field sports, especially game hunting. He was known to have also been a believer in the conservation of endangered species.Thirteen poems from his cycle Tristesses (Sorrows), were set to music by composer Lili Boulanger in 1914 under the title Clairieres dans le ciel (Clearings in the Sky) a title Jammes had given to an assorted collection of poetry of which Tristesses was a part. The whole cycle was composed for soprano, flute and piano by Michel Bosc.
