Louis Aragon (October 3, 1897 - December 24, 1982)

Louis Aragon (October 3, 1897 – December 24, 1982) was one of the leading lights in the Dadaist and surrealist movements. His La Grande Gaite, Le Paysan de Paris, and "Traite du Style" are classics of surrealist literature and poetry. Following a visit to Russia in 1931, Aragon abandoned surrealism and became a Communist, after which his writing took a realistic tack. During the German occupation of France during World War II, Aragon became famous as the Poet of the Resistance. After the death of his wife in 1970, Aragon lived with poet Michel Lariviere, who became his lover and companion. Affirming his bisexuality toward the end of his life, Aragon rode in a pink convertible in more than one gay pride parade.
