OCTAVE PIRMEZ (1832-1883), Belgian author, was born at Chatelineau in 1832. He belonged to a well-known Belgian family, and his cousin, Edouard Pirmez, was distinguished for his works on literary and political subjects. He lived an uneventful life at his chateau of Acoz, in Hainaut, where he died in May 1883. Pirmez was an ardent admirer of the French romanticists. His works include Les Feuillees: pensees et maximes (1862); Victor Hugo (1863); Jours de solitude (1869); Remo; Souvenirs d'un frere (188o) ; Heures de philosophie (1881); and the posthumous Lettres d Jose (1884). These books form a history of his emotional life, and reveal an extreme melancholy. See Vie et correspondence d'Octave Pirmez (1888), by Adolphe Siret and Jose de Coppin.
