Georges Rodenbach: Le Cimetière du Père-Lachaise #4

The tomb of the Belgian symbolist poet and novelist Georges Rodenbach (1855–98), one of the most striking in Père-Lachaise. He was from an aristocratic family of German origin, and a great-uncle established the Rodenbach brewery, which is still extant.

Rodenbach moved to Paris in 1888. He is perhaps most remembered for his novel Bruges-la-Morte (1892).
