From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Pierre-Jules Renard or Jules Renard was a notable French author and member of the Académie Goncourt.

Renard born on February 22, 1864 in Châlons du Maine, in Mayenne, France. This French writer was most notably the author of Poil de Carotte (Carrot hair) (1894) and Les Histoires Naturelles (Natural Histories/Stories) (1896). Among his other works are Le Plaisir de rompre (The Pleasure of Breaking) (1898) and Huit jours à la campagne (Eight Days in the Countryside) (1906).

He was the child of François Renard and Anna-Rose Colin. He had three siblings. Amélie (b. 1858), died at a young age. A second child was also named Amélie (b. 1859). A third child, Maurice was born before Pierre-Jules, in 1862. In 1885 and 1886, he served a year in the military in Bourges. On April 28, 1888, he married Marie Morneau. They lived on 44 Rock Street in Paris.

He died in Paris on May 22, 1910.

A quote from him, which has a lot of truth about the nature of writing for an audience in it: Writing is an occupation in which you have to keep proving your talent to people who have none.
