Jacques PrÃ©vert's poems have impressed generations of both young and old readers. This new edition has been revised and expanded to include newly translated poems. PrÃ©vert is the quintessential French romantic without being cloying or melodramatic. He wrote the scenario of "Les Enfants du Paradis" of Marcel CarnÃ© 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. PrÃ©vert'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.
