Jean Cocteau

It’s the birthday of French poet and film director Jean Cocteau, born in Maisons-Laffitte, near Paris (1889).

“The job of the poet (a job which can’t be learned) consists of placing those objects of the visible world which have become invisible due to the glue of habit, in an unusual position which strikes the soul and gives them a tragic force.”
- Jean Cocteau
