"Raymond Radiguet (1903–1923) was a French author and poet who achieved significant literary acclaim at a young age. Despite his short life—he died at age 20—Radiguet left a lasting impact on French literature. Radiguet's two novels, "Le Diable au corps" (The Devil in the Flesh) and "Le bal du Comte d'Orgel" (Count d'Orgel's Ball), are considered classics of 20th-century French literature. "Le Diable au corps," published when Radiguet was just 20 years old, is a semi-autobiographical novel about a young man's affair with a married woman during World War I. The novel caused a scandal upon its publication due to its explicit content and the youth of its author, but it was later recognized for its literary merit. Radiguet was associated with the avant-garde literary and artistic circles of his time, and he was particularly close with the poet and artist Jean Cocteau, who served as his mentor. Radiguet's promising career was cut short by his untimely death from typhoid fever in 1923. Despite his brief career, his novels have continued to be read and admired for their precocious insight and stylistic elegance." / French fiction. Translations. Fiction.
