From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Albert Giraud (1860-1929) was a Belgian poet writing in the French language.
He was a minor Symbolist poet. His published works include Pierrot lunaire: Rondels bergamasques (1884), a poem cycle based on the commedia dell'arte figure of Pierrot, and La Guirlande des Dieux (1910). His chief claim to fame, though, was that the composer Arnold Schönberg set a German language version of selections from his Pierrot Lunaire to innovative atonal music.
