Poetry Books by Jean Cocteau

Jean Cocteau Books, Jean Cocteau poetry book Tempest of stars Authors: Jean Cocteau
Publisher: Enitharmon Press
Published Date: 1992-08
Categories: Poetry
The only bi-lingual edition of Cocteau's poems. "Cocteau is better known in America as filmmaker and playwright than poet. This generous collection featuring both French originals and their English translation should help rectify that. Translator Reed, himself a poet of note, has permitted himself the latitude to betray literary meaning when necessary to capture the elusive strains of Cocteau's experimentation. Reed is particularly adept at transmitting the clashing images...that are Cocteau's specially. Cocteau is rich and wild, driving metaphors like rangy horses. Nicely counter-pointing his texts in this edition are evocative drawings by David Austen". -- Booklist.

Poem of the day

Eugene Field Poem
A Fickle Woman
