Hégésippe Moreau (born Pierre-Jacques Roulliot ; April 8, 1810 – December 20, 1838) was a French lyric poet. From birth, he was called by the last name of his biological father (Moreau) and took on the pseudonym Hégésippe when he first began publishing poetry in 1829. In the imagination of the French romantics and the 19th century public, the difficulties of Hégésippe Moreau's life and his untimely death made him a romantic equivalent of the earlier poets Thomas Chatterton, Nicolas Joseph Laurent Gilbert and Jacques Clinchamps de Malfilâtre. This romantic myth was solidified by the publication of his complete works (together with the works of Gilbert and a list of poets who died of hunger) in 1856; the 1860 edition of his works included an important biographical preface by Sainte-Beuve .

Harryette Mullen (born July 1, 1953) is an American poet, short story writer, and literary scholar. She was born in Florence, Alabama, grew up in Fort Worth, Texas, graduated from the University of Texas at Austin and attended graduate school at the University of California, Santa Cruz. As of 2008, she lives in Los Angeles, California. She wrote poems such as Land of the Discount Price, Home of the Brand Name.
Laura Mullen (b. 1958 — ) in Los Angeles, is a contemporary American poet working in hybrid genres and traditions. As with the poetry of (among many others) Cole Swensen, her work is considered Postmodern and post-Language school, but it also takes a lot from her interests in Henry James, Edgar Allan Poe and numerous authors and visual artists who fall outside of the poetic cannon. This explains that, among her five published books, one finds the post-modern gothic, The Tales of Horror (Kelsey St. Press), traditional formed poems such as the "sestina in which my grandmother is going deaf" in The Surface, and a prose-poetry-crime novel-postmodern language text: Murmur (Futurepoem Books, 2007). In fact, Mullen’s work holds the mirror up to language, attempting to find out (and find ways out of ) the limits of the wor(l)ds we are sentenced to. The lyric impulse exists in her writing, but the surface is rough, like her jagged language use at times, reflecting the violence of the effort to see into seeing itself.. American poet
