About the Author:

Jules Renard (1864-1910) est un ecrivain francais eminemment classique, membre de l'Academie Goncourt, ses livres, empreints d'humour et de poesie, ont fait et font l'objet de nombreuses editions tant en France qu'a l'etranger.

Ne en Mayenne a Chalons-du-Maine, c est a l age de deux ans qu il arrive a Chitry-les-Mines dans la Nievre, pays de son pere. Aussi s est-il toujours considere comme un enfant de de Chitry-les-mines. Tres jeune, le dernier enfant de la fratrie surnomme -Poil de carotte- par sa mere subit les tensions familiales et se rend compte qu il n est pas un enfant desire.

Pensionnaire a Nevers, Jules est recu bachelier es lettres en 1883 au lycee Charlemagne de Paris mais refuse de se presenter au concours de l Ecole normale superieure justifiant son choix dans une maxime reste celebre des "Bucoliques": -Je suis de la vieille ecole, moi, de l ecole qui ne sait pas lire-.

De fin 1881 a 1910, annee de sa mort, Jules Renard residera principalement a Paris meme s il montre un attachement particulier a celle qu il surnomme affectueusement -sa petite partie- en devenant tour a tour conseiller municipal a Chaumont puis maire de Chitry de 1904 a sa mort.

Indiscutablement, sa vie est inseparable de son terroir qu il considere comme son veritable refuge, des lors sonoeuvre litteraire en est tout autant impregnee. Qu'il s'agisse de "Poil de Carotte", son livre le plus connu, du "Vigneron dans sa vigne", d'"Histoires naturelles", de "Bucoliques" ou de son celebre "Journal", Renard puisera tres souvent jusqu a son deces a Chitry son inspiration dans la campagne de son enfance.
