Roger Gilbert-Lecomte

Roger Gilbert-Lecomte (May 18 1907 in Reims, France - December 31, 1943 in Paris) was a French poet, avant gardist and co-founder (with René Daumal, Roger Vailland and Josef Šíma) of the artistic group and magazine Le Grand Jeu. The group co-worked with surrealists, but André Breton excommunicated them from the movement. Like all the other members of the group, he experimented with drugs for both artistic and sociological reasons (they felt that the "to be" meant "to be sick"). His premature death was caused by infection from dirty hypodermic needles (he injected morfium to his veins through trousers covered with mud) - the way of death he predicted in his poetry.
