Georges Rodenbach (1855-1898) was educated in Ghent alongside his friend Emile Verhaeren. Prodigious in short stories, novels as well as poetry, he was the first Belgian writer of his circle to move to Paris, and find support from his French counterparts. His poetry influenced writers such as Proust, Zweig and Rilke. Rodenbach died in Paris of ill health in 1898, aged only 43.
