Emil Cioran: Cimetière du Montparnasse #5

RASINARI 1911 – PARIS 1995
1919 – 1997'
Emil Cioran published one of his key works, De l'inconvénient d'être né – literally 'On the Inconvenience of Being Born' – obviously a book about the absurdity of the human condition, in 1973. He never killed himself, and died of Alzheimer's. His partner Simone Boué died two years later.
My first – and very long – post on the Cimetière du Montparnasse:

There's a map in the cemetery giving the approximate location: it's really not difficult to find.
