Guillaume Apollinaire was an avant-garde poet, probably the first surrealist poet, since he probably coined the word surrealism to describe his theater play “Les Mamelles de Tirésias”. He was one of the original first-generation “bohémiens”, which around 1902 meant chilling in Paris with Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and the legendary Gertrude Stein, at a time when Hemingway was still crawling around in nappies, that is.
