Guillaume Apollinaire is one of the most widely read and influential of modern French poets. He was born either in Rome, where he was baptized, or in Monaco, where he was educated at the Lycee Saint-Charles. Quintessentially modern, his reputation rests principally on two volumes of poems-Alcools and Calligrammes , which broke with the traditions of nineteenth-century poetry in both form and content. Apollinaire introduced free verse, eliminated punctuation, and even wrote poems in the form of pictures to express the dynamism of the new twentieth century. Apollinaire wrote novels, short stories, and plays as well as poetry. He wrote The Cubist Painters , which first defined the nature of cubism.
Les Onze Mille Verges ou les Amours d'un hospodar is a pornographic novel by French author Guillaume Apollinaire , published in over his initials "G. The title contains a play on the Catholic veneration of the "Eleven thousand Virgins" French: les onze mille vierges , the martyred companions of Saint Ursula , replacing the word vierge virgin with verge rod due to a slip of the tongue by the protagonist and as an omen of his fate. The use of the word verge may also be considered as a pun for it is used as a vulgarism for the male member. The writing is alert, fresh and concrete, humour is always present, and the entire novel exudes an "infernal joy", [ attribution needed ] which finds its apotheosis in the final scene.
