Description
 
Jean Cocteau (1889-1963), was a French poet, novelist, dramatist, designer, and filmmaker, whose versatility, unconventionality, and enormous output brought him international acclaim. As a leading member of the surrealist movement, he had a great influence on the work of others.

Cocteau was born on July 5th, 1889 near Paris. He was a poor student and dropped out of school. At the age of 16, Cocteau met the actor Edouard de Max who launched him as a poet. His first volume of verse, La Lampe d'Aladin, appeared in 1909 and quickly established him as an important writer.
