About Author

Jean Cocteau (1889-1963) - poet, novelist, dramatist, artist, musician, choreographer, film-maker, and actor - was one of the most talented Frenchmen of the twentieth century and a leading figure in the Surrealist movement. In addition to his popular novel Les Enfants terribles (1929), he is best remembered in the English-speaking world for the film of Orph-e (1950) and perhaps his play La Machine infernale (1934).
