O. V. de L. Milosz (1877-1939) , a Lithuanian diplomat in Paris after World War I, eventually became a French citizen. He wrote fiction, drama and essays and collected Lithuanian folk tales. Milosz was a great influence on his younger cousin, Czeslaw Milosz, winner of the Nobel Prize for literature in 1980. Largely neglected during his lifetime, Milosz has increasingly come to be considered as an important figure in French poetry.
