Jean Maurice Eugène Clément Cocteau ( French: [ʒɑ̃ kɔkto] ; 5 July 1889 – 11 October 1963) was a French writer, designer, playwright, artist and filmmaker. Cocteau is best known for his novel Les Enfants Terribles (1929), and the films Blood of a Poet (1930), Les Parents Terribles (1948), Beauty and the Beast (1946) and Orpheus (1949). His circle of associates, friends and lovers included Kenneth Anger , Pablo Picasso , Jean Hugo , Jean Marais , Henri Bernstein , Yul Brynner , Marlene Dietrich , Coco Chanel , Erik Satie , Albert Gleizes , Igor Stravinsky , Marie Laurencin , María Félix , Édith Piaf , Panama Al Brown , Colette , Jean Genet , and Raymond Radiguet.

Cocteau was born in Maisons-Laffitte , Yvelines, a town near Paris , to Georges Cocteau and his wife, Eugénie Lecomte; a socially prominent Parisian family. His father was a lawyer and amateur painter who committed suicide when Cocteau was nine. From 1900–1904, Cocteau attended the Lycée Condorcet where he met and began a physical relationship with schoolmate Pierre Dargelos who would later reappear throughout Cocteau's oeuvre. [1] He left home at fifteen. He published his first volume of poems, Aladdin's Lamp , at nineteen. Cocteau soon became known in Bohemian artistic circles as The Frivolous Prince , the title of a volume he published at twenty-two. Edith Wharton described him as a man "to whom every great line of poetry was a sunrise, every sunset the foundation of the Heavenly City." [2]

    Dada was an informal international movement, with participants in Europe and North America. The beginnings of Dada correspond to the outbreak of World War I. For many participants, the movement was a protest against the bourgeois nationalist and colonialist interests, which many Dadaists believed were the root cause of the war, and against the cultural and intellectual conformity—in art and more broadly in society—that corresponded to the war. [10]

    Avant-garde circles outside France knew of pre-war Parisian developments. They had seen (or participated in) Cubist exhibitions held at Galeries Dalmau, Barcelona (1912), Galerie Der Sturm in Berlin (1912), the Armory Show in New York (1913), SVU Mánes in Prague (1914), several Jack of Diamonds exhibitions in Moscow and at De Moderne Kunstkring, Amsterdam (between 1911 and 1915). Futurism developed in response to the work of various artists. Dada subsequently combined these approaches. [11] [12]

    You ve probably already checked the wikipedia, but there are a few tidbits in there as well as a lot of good links on other data relating to her: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marie_de_France http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lais_of_Marie_de_France Another potential source (although difficult to come by these days) is old encyclopedias. I once had a report on an obscure character in French history, and could find more information in older encyclopedias than I could in more modern ones. I should clarify that by "old", in my case it meant the 1960 s sometime. Fortunately for you, though, your paper can focus on something that you can effectively invent-- that is, why she wasn t fully appreciated in her own time. Certainly you know it s true, since there are very few records of her at the time of her writing. So it remains for you to speculate (with some evidence to back up your claim) on why this was the case. Hence, you might look up various things such as: - how were women writers treated in her time? - was the subject matter she wrote about deemed "fit" for reading? - who would have been reading the materials she wrote at the time?

    An important exponent of avant-garde art , Cocteau had great influence on the work of others, including a group of composers known as Les six. In the early twenties, he and other members of Les six frequented a wildly popular bar named Le Boeuf sur le Toit , a name that Cocteau himself had a hand in picking. The popularity was due in no small measure to the presence of Cocteau and his friends. [3]

    Cocteau''s experiments with the human voice peaked with his play La Voix humaine . The story involves one woman on stage speaking on the telephone with her (invisible and inaudible) departing lover, who is leaving her to marry another woman. The telephone proved to be the perfect prop for Cocteau to explore his ideas, feelings, and "algebra" concerning human needs and realities in communication.

    Don t take a tour, unless you can find one that is mostly churches. Remember, there is never more than one cathedral in any city, it s the central church, the Cardinal s seat, so don t expect to be able to stay in one town and see three or four Cathedrals right there. Notre Dame is the Cathedral of Paris, and it s right in the center of town. I stayed in the Quartier Latin and walked to ND in about five minutes. The Cathedrals in Riems, and Mont St., Michel are very beautiful and very historic. but there is a Cathedral in every major city.

    Wow kid, perhaps you should write about something you know. Paris was an open city during WW2, there was no resistance during the initial attack. Neither side really wanted the Germans to flatten the entire city.
