  • ASIN: Customer Reviews: The master of the 20th Century In the 60's, it was cool to like Genet. Ginsberg even made a reference to the boys in Kansas reading him (aspiring to a future when even the clodhoppers would be enlightened). There are really some fantastic reviews for this book on here, so I'll try to cover some new ground in a brief manner. A lot of people have no idea who Genet is. He died in 1986, just in the finishing stages of a book (Prisoner of Love)... his first since the Thief's Journal, almost 30 years before it. He had surfaced briefly to author some of the most incredible dramatic works ever... in fact, far greater than his novels, and his novels are some of the greatest of all time (definitely ranks with Dostoevsky).

    5. Jean Genet (1910-1986)
    Biography of the French dramatist, plus links to all of his works currently in print.
    Jean Genet French novelist, playwright and poet Jean Genet was born in Paris on December 19, 1910. Abandoned by his parents, he spent much of his youth in an institution for juvenile delinquents. At the age of ten, he was accused of stealing. Although innocent of the charge, having been described as a thief, the young boy resolved to be a thief. "Thus," wrote Genet, "I decisively repudiated a world that had repudiated me." Between 1930 and 1940, he wandered through various European countries, living as a thief and male prostitute. Eventually, he found himself in Hitler's Germany where he felt strangely out of place. "I had a feeling of being in a camp of organized bandits. This is a nation of thieves, I felt. If I steal here, I accomplish no special act that could help me to realize myself. I merely obey the habitual order of things. I do not destroy it." So Genet hastened on to a country that still obeyed a more conventional moral code. In 1943, after being imprisoned for theft, Genet began writing. Ignoring traditional plot and psychology, Genet's plays rely heavily on ritual, transformation, illusion and interchangeable identities. His experiences in prison would inform much of his work. The homosexuals, prostitutes, thiefs and outcasts of his plays are trapped in self-destructive circles. They express the despair and loneliness of a man caught in a maze of mirrors, trapped by an endless progression of images that are, in reality, merely his own distorted reflection.

    by Bamber Gascoigne
    Jean Genet (1910-1986) This French writer, a dramatist and convicted felon, became one of the leading figures in the avant-garde theater. Genet' depicted the world of male prostitutes, convicts, pimps and social outcasts, the dark side of society which knew by his own experience. For a long time he was so addicted to theft that he stole diamonds from his hostesses at a literary reception. However, Genet's life changed radically when such prominent figures as Jean-Paul Sartre and Jean Cocteau clamored successfully for his parole. He subsequently escaped his criminal past and embarked on a new career as a writer, who glorified homosexual love and lawbreaking. "O let me be nothing but beauty alone! Quickly or slowly I will go, but I will dare what must be dared. I will destroy appearances, the casings will be burnt off and will fall from me, and I will appear there, some evening, on the palm of your hand, calm and pure like a statuette of glass." (from The Thief's Journal "In writing out for his pleasure the incommunicable dreams of his particularity, Genet has transformed them into exigencies of communication... Genet began to write in order to affirm his solitude, to be self-sufficient, and it was the writing itself that, by its problems, gradually led him to seek readers."

    Genet, Jean (19l0-1986) page: Jean Genet's work has left a powerful legacy to post-modernity and remains a provocation to questions of gay identity. Genet's fidelity to outcasts and the socially marginal, his simultaneous criticism of and participation in radical politics, his obsession with role-playing and identity, and his stylized violence and obscenity anticipate post-modern apprehensions and techniques. His commitment to the extremes of revolt contributed to the myth of "Jean Genet."

    French writer, a novelist, playwright and poet. Abandoned by his mom, a Parisian prostitute, he was brought up unloved and unschooled by foster parents who tolerated him for the fee they were paid by the state. They threw him out when he was accused of theft at ten; he spent five years in a reformatory. When he escaped, he joined the Foreign Legion. Genet spent much of his life in various prisons from the age of 20 for crimes that included traffic in stolen goods and narcotics, prostitution and homosexuality. He began to write seriously in 1939 with a first novel, "Our Lady of Flowers," spun out of masturbatory prison fantasies, and then plays such as "The Balcony" and "The Blacks." By 1947 his acknowledgment was impressive. His autobiography, "A Thief's Journal" was published in 1949. Though a charmer, even when unwashed and hooked on Nembutal, even the most intimate biographers find a remoteness about him. He remained the needy child, as he wrote, "wholly consecrated to evil." From the '60s, for two decades, he was no longer just France's most controversial writer but a celebrity.
