About the Item"A wave of the magic wand, and books are written, films are made, plays are acted, and the pen draws." Poet, novelist, dramatist, essayist, artist, illustrator, and film producer, Jean Cocteau integrated art into all parts of his intensely creative life. In his personal view of this multitalented and innovative "prince of poets," Patrick Mauriès highlights the important and unusual aspects of Cocteau's life and work, revealing the strange and mythical world he invented and the memorable enchantment of each of his creations. This lavishly illustrated book is a tribute to the effervescent spirit and visionary genius of one of the most original and versatile personalities of the twentieth century.
