Why You Should Know Jacques Prévert

Jacques Prévert was a French poet and screenwriter. His poems became and remain very popular in the French-speaking world, particularly in schools.  Some of the movies he wrote are extremely well regarded, with Les Enfants du Paradis considered one of the greatest films of all time.
Prévert's poems were collected and published in his books. His poems are often about life in Paris and life after the Second World War. A great description for those who plan to visit the beautiful city!  Thank you for your beautiful art Jacques Prévert!

An orange on the table
Your dress on the rug
And you in my bed
Sweet gift of now
Crisp cool of night
Passion fire of my life
