About this Item

188 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket in protective mylar cover. Good condition. DIARIES. Jean Cocteau, that strange modern genius whose name looms so large in any discussion of the intellectual world of his time, has written his reaction to opium which should interest all of his followers and those for whom the drug has always held a fascination. Cocteau has no horror of the opiate and indeed presents a remarkable case for its use at certain times and under certain conditions. The book throws a remarkable light around the psychology of the opium addict, of the various stages of his psyche as the habit progresses, and of the remarkable transvaluations following the tapering off. A strange book with flashes of undoubted genius and in its own way as illuminating as De Quincey's famous work. It is illustrated with many remarkable drawings made by the author when partially under the influence of opium. Translated into English from the French by Ernest Boyd. (Key Words: Jean Cocteau, Opium Addiction, Diaries, Ernest Boyd). Bookseller Inventory # 70369X1
