Gaston Miron (1928-1996) was a dominant influence in the Quebec poetry scene. In the forefront of the Quebec nationalist movement, Miron is considered a "national" poet and has been awarded several major literary prizes, including the Guillaume-Apollinaire in 1981 and the Molson Prize in 1985. His masterpiece, L'homme rapaillé (partly translated as The March to Love: Selected Poems of Gaston Miron, whose title echoes Miron's most celebrated poem "La marche à l'amour"), has sold over 100 000 copies, in Quebec and overseas, ensuring Miron as one of the most widely read authors of Quebec literature.
