This article discusses the presence of men who fall pregnant and give birth in Apollinaire's writings, notably in his 1917 play 'Les Mamelles de Tirésias'. This fantasy is shown to be common in European folklore, as recounted in 'The Thousand and One Nights' and in 'Kryptadia', a collection of folk tales that Apollinaire knew well. Freud recounts a related case study and interprets it in ways that may enhance our appreciation of 'Les Mamelles de Tirésias'.
