Denys Corbet was a Guernsey poet who wrote using the indigenous Guernsey language, Dgèrnésiais. Corbet described himself as the 'Le draïn rimeux' (The Last Poet). Most probably he could see, even then, the decline of this local language. Corbet is also well known for his charming naïve depictions of farm animals.
