Roger Milliot (1927, Le Creusot - 1968) was a French poet and painter. He served as a soldier in Indochina and as such had a pension. His health problems prevented him from becoming an ornamentalist. Like his idol René Char, he preferred provincial life to that of Paris and lived in Montauban, where there is now a museum of his paintings, mostly portraits of women. His depression and feelings of frustration led him to suicide by drowning in the Seine river. His poems were published posthumously.
