Char is regarded as one of the most important modern French poets. Admired by Heidegger for the profundity of his poetic philosophy, he was also a hero of the French Resistance. Associated with the surrealist movement, he wrote poetry which confronts the major twentieth century moral, political, and artistic concerns with a simplicity of vision and expression that owes much to the poet-philosophers of ancient Greece.
