The following is a personality profile of Jean Cocteau based on his work.
Jean Cocteau is shrewd.
He is empathetic, he feels what others feel and is compassionate towards them. He is unstructured as well: he does not make a lot of time for organization in his daily life. But, Jean Cocteau is also imaginative: he has a wild imagination.
More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for discovery.
Considers independence to guide a large part of what he does: he likes to set his own goals to decide how to best achieve them. He is also relatively unconcerned with tradition: he cares more about making his own path than following what others have done.
I highly recommend that you get the book and then order the 1932 film to go with the book.The film has an autobiography of Cocteau that is not to be missed if you wish to truly understand this artist. Read More
