Biography

I'm a poet. I dedicate my life to my creative expression and to the study and teaching of French literature. French Literature is the best literature ever expressed. I study and teach the works of Sade, Baudelaire, Rimbaud, Huysmans, Rousseau, Voltaire, Diderot, Moliere, Balzac, Hugo, Breton, etc. etc. It is very important to me to keep the legacy of their genius alive. Their creative expression influenced our modern world more than any other artists. 

Interests

18th & 19th Century Literature specializing in érotisme, revolution, and névrose diabolique
