Jean-Paul de Dadelsen
Translated from the French by Marilyn Hacker
Jean-Paul de Dadelsen (1913–1957) was a French poet. During World War II he fought with the French army until the defeat of 1940 and joined Charles de Gaulle’s Free French Forces in London in 1942. He was a correspondent for Albert Camus’s newspaper Combat and after the war, a journalist for the BBC’s French Service. Most of his poetry was published posthumously; his collected works were published in the Poésie/Gallimard series in 2005.
