In the years immediately following World War II, Jacques Prevert spoke directly to and for the French who had come of age during the German Occupation. First published in 1946 by Les Editions de Minuit, a press with its origins in the Underground, Paroles met with enormous success, and there were several hundred thousand copies in print by the time these first translations in English were published by City Lights in 1958. Today Prevert speaks out in a voice still attuned to our times, for the human condition (which is always his focus) has not changed. In fact, man's inhumanity to man would seem to have intensified, making these poems ever more touching, ever more prescient.

À propos de l'auteur (1972)

Prevert's poetry offers an irreverent, childlike view of the everyday world. Employing puns, word games, and jokes, it celebrates the unexpected and pokes fun at the serious or pompous. Paroles (1945), his first collection, introduced a freedom of form and an experimentation with spoken language that had been missing from much prewar and wartime poetry. Prevert also played a central role in the history of French cinema, writing several important film scripts, including the classic Marcel Carne film, Children of Paradise (1944). He also found the time to compose the lyrics to a number of popular songs, including the jazz standard "Autumn Leaves" ("Les Feuilles Mortes").
