Comte de Lautréamont was the pen name of Isidore Lucien Ducasse, an Urugaian-born French poet.
Les chants de Maldoror (Maldoror, in English) was first published in French, in 1869.

An edition of Les chants de Maldoror, published in 1934, was ilustrated by Salvador Dalí. René Magritte also ilustrated the book for a 1946 edition.
