Jules Renard (1864 - 1910)  

French writer. His Écornifleur (1892) is a novel about a young writer's selfish exploitation of a bourgeois family. Poil de carotte (1894), an autobiographical novel about an unhappy child, reflects Renard's bitter memories. Both novels were dramatized by the author, the first as Monsieur Vernet (1903), the second with the original title (1900). Other plays include Le Plaisir de rompre (1897) and Le Pain de ménage (1898), one-act comedies. Le Vigneron dans sa vigne (1894) and Les Bucoliques (1898) are collections of essays and short descriptive tales. Renard's Journal (1925–27) gives a view of the literary figures of his day and shows his preoccupation with style and language.

no steme domandar de ver bona creanza; domandeme solo de far finta
ogni tanto disi la verità, cussì po\' i te credi co\' te conti bale
scriver xe una maniera de parlar senza che i te interompi
zerchè el ridicolo per tuto, lo troverè
