Yves Jean Bonnefoy (June 24, 1923 – July 1, 2016) was a French poet and essayist. His works, both poetic and theoretical, explore the meaning of the spoken and written word. Bonnefoy also published a number of translations into French, most notably of William Shakespeare. A respected critic, he was professor at the Collège de France from 1981 to 1993 and is the author of several works on art, art history, and artists including Miró and Giacometti. The Encyclopædia Britannica presents him as ″perhaps the most important French poet of the latter half of the 20th century″.
