Playwrights ... edit Jean Maurice Eug¨ne Cl©ment Cocteau 5 July 11 October ) was a French poet novelist dramatist designer ... boxing manager and filmmaker . Along with other Surrealists of his generation ( Jean Anouilh and Rene Char for example) Cocteau grappled with the "algebra" of verbal codes old and new, mise en scene language and technologies of modernism to create a paradox: a classical avant-garde . His circle of associates, friends and lovers included Jean Marais, Henri Bernstein ‰dith Piaf and Raymond Radiguet. Like Victor Hugo and Charles Baudelaire, he intended his artistic work to serve a dual purpose to be entertaining and political. The results played out in the theatrical world of the Grands Theatres, the Boulevards and beyond during the Parisian epoque he both lived through and helped define and create. His versatile, unconventional approach and enormous output brought him international acclaim.
edit Early years
Cocteau was born in Maisons-Laffitte , a small town near Paris to Georges Cocteau and his wife Eug©nie Lecomte, a prominent Parisian family. His father was a lawyer and amateur painter, who committed suicide when Cocteau was nine. At the age of fifteen, Cocteau left home. Despite his achievements in virtually all literary and artistic fields, Cocteau insisted that he was primarily a poet and that all his work was poetry. He published his first volume of poems, Aladdin's Lamp, at nineteen. Soon Cocteau became known in the

Jean Cocteau (1889-1963) French artist and writer, who made his name widely known in poetry, fiction, film, ballet, painting, and opera. Jean Cocteau's works reflect the influence of surrealism, psychoanalysis, cubism, Catholic Religion; occasionally they were opium influenced. In his time Cocteau was a promoter of avant-garde styles and fashions. His friends included such prominent figures as Pablo Picasso, the composer Erik Satie, the writer Marcel Proust, and the Russian director Serge Diaghilev. "The worst tragedy for a poet is to be admired through being misunderstood." (from Jean Cocteau was born in Maisons-Lafitte into a wealthy Parisian family, which also was politically prominent. His father was a lawyer and amateur painter, who committed suicide when Cocteau was nine. However, he had a lasting influence on his son. It is said that this tragic event also created Cocteau's awareness of human weakness, which he compensated by putting himself in the service of the performing arts and the mysterious forces in the universe. Poetry was for Cocteau the basis of all art, a "religion without hope". At the age of fifteen, Cocteau left home. He was in the secondary school only a mediocre student, and unsuccessful after repeated attempts to pass the graduation examination. His first volume of poems

    Jean Cocteau translated, from the French, by Charles Guenther L'Ange Heurtebise I Angel Heurtebise on the steps Beats me with his wings Of watered silk, refreshes my memory, The rascal, motionless And alone with me on the agate Which breaks, ass, your supernatural Pack-saddle. II Angel Heurtebise with incredible Brutality jumps on me. Please Don't jump so hard, Beastly fellow, flower of tall Stature. You've laid me up. That's Bad manners. I hold the ace, see? What do you have? III Angel Heurtebise pushes me; And you, Lord Jesus, mercy, Lift me, raise me to the corner Of your pointed knees; Undiluted pleasure. Thumb, untie The rope! I die.

    Jean Cocteau: Filmmaker?
    Like many gifted artists whose talent falls short of genius, Cocteau did not feel drawn to one art form above all others. Instead he utilised all the media available to him to create a complex personal mythology which mixed imagery and text, poetry and prose, fact and fiction, realism and fantasy, history and modernity. This was further elaborated by numerous autobiographical writings and frequent interviews. Francis Steegmuller, Cocteau's most perceptive biographer, calls the result of this super-abundance of information that he provided about himself an "invisibility-by-autobiography" . In the forty years since his death, interest in Cocteau's life (especially in France) has burgeoned into a small industry. Invisibility-by-autobiography has been supplemented by invisibility-by-biography.
    My first step in setting up such a narrative is to provide a linear and chronological account of the salient details of Cocteau's life and work. This I do below, with an emphasis on his work in film.

    La villa Santo Sospir


    A 35-minute color film by Cocteau entitled "La Villa Santo Sospir." Shot in 1952, this is an "amateur film" done in 16mm, a sort of home movie in which Cocteau takes the viewer on a tour of a friend's villa on the French coast (a major location used in Testament of Orpheus). The house itself is heavily decorated, mostly by Cocteau (and a bit by Picasso), and we are given an extensive tour of the artwork. Cocteau also shows us several dozen paintings as well. Most cover mythological themes, of course. He also proudly shows paintings by Edouard Dermithe and Jean Marais and plays around his own home in Villefranche. This informal little project once again shows the joy Cocteau takes in creating art, in addition to showing a side of his work (his paintings and drawings) that his films often overshadow.

    in this DVD set brimming with extras BY GARY MORRIS Jean Cocteau (1889-1963) has been called the most versatile artist of the twentieth century, and in this case hyperbole has at least some basis in reality. Born to a middle-class family in Paris , he excelled from youth in an almost absurd range of fields: filmmaking, poetry, graphic art, fiction, drama, couture, even postage-stamp design. Most of all, Cocteau was a brilliant, witty, self-invented personality whose talents put him at the forefront of practically every "ism" of the century, from surrealism to modernism to dada. The persistence of fairy tale, mythological, and other classical motifs in his work adds a gravitas — a word Cocteau would no doubt bristle at, as being much too serious — that makes it arguably unique in modern art. Beauty and the Beast and the "Orphic trilogy" — stand almost sui generis as representatives of the poetic consciousness in cinema. The Criterion Collection’s recent release of the Orphic trilogy in a DVD boxed set affords a welcome chance to reassess these works that were a crucial part of many cinephiles’ introduction to the art of film. All three benefit from crisp digital transfers, restored sound, and new English subtitle translations.

    After Dargelos died, Cocteau ran away to Marseille, where he lived among sailors and prostitutes. The image of Dargelos "as the shameless, untutored faun" appears in The White Paper (1928), Cocteau's celebration of homosexuality, as well as in his journal Opium (1930), the novel Children of the Game (1929), and the film The Blood of the Poet Paris cafes, boulevards, theaters, salons, galleries, and lovers provided Cocteau a lifetime of education and entertainment, what the high-school dropout described as his "Sorbonne." The actor Edouard de Max, who played opposite Sarah Bernhardt, guided him through the Parisian scene (with the approval of Cocteau's mother) and helped the decadent youth publish his first three books of poems ( Alladin's Lamp The Frivolous Prince and Sophocles' Dance The ballet brought him into contact with Nijinsky and Sergei Diaghilev, who in 1912 demanded of the youth: "Astonish me."
