French writer, Louis Aragon.
The rich Iranian literary heritage has greatly influenced Louis Aragon, prominent French poet, writer and co-founder of Surrealism.

Moved by Iranian poetry and taste, Aragon composed his most famous work, Le Fou d'Elsa (The Madman of Elsa), inspired by Iran's Leili va Majnun.

Nezami's 'Leili va Majnun' is the legend of ill-starred lovers and was revitalized by Aragon to express his love for Elsa.

Aragon also composed 'Parabole limite de Sa'di influenced by Iran's famous Medieval poet, Sa'di of Shiraz.

As a novelist, a poet, an art critic, a member of the French Resistance, and an active member of the Parti Communiste Francais, Louis Aragon (1897-1982) was one of the most influential French writers of the twentieth century.
