Appolinaire was actually French-Italian-Polish poet: born in Rome, his real name was Wilhelm-Apollinaris von Kostrowitzky, his mother was a Polish noble lady, who lived in the Vatican and had two sons not being married, so nobody knows for certain who Guillaume's father was. Anyway, after moving to Paris, Guillaume joined the bohemian artist circles and soon became a leading character there. As the innovator of French poetry, with all his literary activities in French language, we can’t call him different but French poet.(He even fought in French Army in World War I and in 1916 was seriously wounded in the temple.)
