Hector de Saint-Denys Garneau.


Hector de Saint-Denys Garneau (June 13, 1912 - October 24, 1943) was a French Canadianmarker poet. He was the grandson of the poet Alfred Garneau and great-grandson of the historian Francois-Xavier Garneau. He spent his early years at his family's manor in Sainte-Catherine-de-Fossambault, Quebecmarker, the town where his cousin Anne Hébert was born. He moved to Montréalmarker with his parents in 1923. There, he studied the classics at three Jesuit colleges: Sainte-Marie, Jean de Brebeufmarker, and Loyola. In addition, he studied painting at the Collège des beaux-arts. Still in his youth, he founded the monthly journal La relève with his friends Paul Beaulieu, Robert Charbonneau and Robert Élie.

In 1934, he developed a rheumatic heart problem and discontinued his studies. He then devoted his time to writing poems, painting and music. His journal was published in 1954 and translated into English in 1962. In 1937, Regards et jeux dans l'espace, his collection of poems, was published. Saint-Denys Garneau is considered Quebec's first modern poet. At the time of his death in 1943, he was living with his parents in Quebec: he was canoeing alone and died of an apparent heart attack.
