pseudonym of Yvonne LE BAYON, ep. Guillou
(Nantes, 1898-Paris, 1978)
Claude Dervenn, whose real name is Yvonne Le Bayon, is widow of Armand Guillou. Breton poetess of French language, we owe to him very delicate collections of poems (Equinoxes, The horizon, etc.), a novel and several works inspired by his love of Brittany and his Vannes country as well as stories of journeys to the Islands (Balearic Islands, Rhodes, Crete, Canaries). Morbihan is crowned by the French Academy and La Terre Vélélée received the France-Germany prize in 1965.
