Jean Cocteau, a versatile man

coctea1

Jean Cocteau (1889 -1963), French writer and filmmaker

  • Man seeks to escape himself in myth, and does so by any means at his disposal.
  • Drugs, alcohol, or lies. Unable to withdraw into himself, he disguises himself.
  • Lies and inaccuracy give him a few moments of comfort.
  • I believe in luck: how else can you explain the success of those you dislike?
  • Victor Hugo was a madman who thought he was Vistor Hugo.
