Pierre Morhange

MORHANGE, PIERRE (1901–1972), French poet. Born in Paris, Morhange gained his literary apprenticeship in the intellectual battles of the 1920s. He maintained that a special sensitivity identified the Jewish writer and that French culture had been enriched by the Jewish contribution. In Blessé (1951) he described Jewish suffering with violence and anguish. A prophetic tone dominates collections such as La vie est unique (1933), Autocritique (1951), and La robe (1954).
