Jacques Prévert's poems have impressed generations of both young and old readers. This new edition has been revised and expanded to include newly translated poems. Prévert is the quintessential French romantic without being cloying or melodramatic. He wrote the scenario of "Les Enfants du Paradis" of Marcel Carné with actors Jean-Louis Barrault and Arletty thought by many one of the best classic romantic cinema. He uses a vast array of literary allusions, memories of the Resistance and dazzling puns but the writing remains simple, direct and unpretentious. Prévert's lyricism, wit and satire are to be savored. His work has inspired such singers as Yves Montand. Many of his poems suggest melody and have become the lyrics of songs. [via]
