Raymond Queneau was a French novelist, poet and the co-founder of Ouvroir de littérature potentielle. Born in Le Havre, Seine-Maritime, Queneau was the only child of Auguste Queneau and Joséphine Mignot. He received his first baccalauréat in 1919 for Latin and Greek, and a second in 1920 for philosophy, then studied at the Sorbonne where he was a fair student of both letters and mathematics, graduating with certificates in philosophy and psychology.
