"Born to landless farmers in Brittany in 1834, the young Déguignet was sent out several times a week to beg for the family's food. After spending some of his adolescent years as a cowherd and a domestic speaking only Breton, he left the provinces as a soldier, avid for knowledge of the vast world. He taught himself Latin, then French, then Italian and Spanish; he read history, philosophy, politics, and literature. He was sent to fight in the Crimean war, he served as attendant at Emperor Napoleon III's coronation, he supported Italy's liberation struggle, and was deployed to defend the ill-fated puppet emperor Maximilian in Mexico. After his return home Déguignet worked as a farmer and tobacconist, falling back into dire poverty

Né dans la misère, Jean-Marie Déguignet sort du rang lorsqu'une abeille cause un accident qui a pour conséquence de le rendre intelligent. Dès lors, il voit les choses telles qu'elles sont et non plus comme les croyances ou la bêtise les expliquent communément. Il se sent vite à l'étroit dans sa Bretagne natale et n'aspire qu'à une chose : étendre sa soif de connaissance en découvrant le monde
