Georges Feydeau & Jean Cocteau

Published by Oberon

Two of the seven monologues by Jean Cocteau (1889-1963) in this edition were written for Édith Piaf and the other five were written for Cocteau's friend, the celebrated actor Jean Marais

Although a minor part of Cocteau's output of films, plays, poems and ballet scenarios, these exquisite miniatures remain a fascinating form of his dramatic expression

Georges Feydeau (1862-1921) is best known for his enduring farces, such as A Flea In Her Ear, yet he wrote over 20 monologues for actors to perform at charity concerts and in fashionable drawing rooms

The six included in this volume were written over a period of 16 years from 1882

Peter Meyer's translations of eleven of these monologues were commissioned by the BBC and performed by leading actors including Eileen Atkins, Jill Bennett, Richard Briers, Judi Dench, Alec McCowan and Timothy West

The Liar and I Lost Her have been newly translated for this volume
