Jean Moréas (zhäN môrāäs´), 1856–1910, French poet, b. Athens. His name was originally Iannis Papadiamantopoulos. He went to Paris in 1872. He wrote two volumes of symbolist verse, Les Syrtes (1884) and Le Pèlerin passionné (1891). With the publication of Enone au clair visage (1894) and Eriphyle (1894), Moréas returned to classical style, and in Les Stances (1899–1901) and his play Iphigénie (1903) he clearly reacted against the new movements in poetry.
