In the years immediately following World War II, Jacques Prevert spoke directly to and for the French who had come of age during the German Occupation.

Fatras by Jacques Prvert( Book )

94 editions published between 1966 and 2006 in 5 languages and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couv. indique : "La poésie peut naître des images aussi bien que des mots, surtout chez un Prévert qui, d'abord homme de cinéma, a un sens aigu de l'image et de ses pouvoirs de suggestion. C'est la confrontation de ces deux moyens d'expression que propose Fatras, où quelques-uns des "collages" auxquels s'applique depuis longtemps Jacques Prévert ont été reproduits parmi les textes qu'il a écrits dans les années 60. On retrouve dans les uns comme dans les autres les thèmes essentiels de son œuvre poétique"

Le jour se lève by Marcel Carn( Book )

21 editions published between 1965 and 1988 in 3 languages and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le Jour se lève (1939), directed by Marcel Carné, is widely recognised as the classic French Poetic Realist film. Told in flashback, it recounts the story of a man who has committed a murder, and who awaits his fate as the police close in. Carné shuttles between different registers, tones, and textures throughout, marshalling the studio's resources to create striking pictorial compositions. The film also contains the great French star Jean Gabin's most iconic performance as François, marooned at the top of his apartment building. Ben McCann's perceptive and lively book traces the evolution of 'Le Jour se lève' and situates it in a very specific historical moment. He also underlines the importance of actors Jules Berry and Arletty, production designer Alexandre Trauner, writer Jacques Prévert, and cinematographer Curt Courant in establishing the film's tone, mood, and visual style. He charts the national and international reception of the film, uncovering a work that deeply divided critics at a time of national crisis. He also reveals Le Jour se lève to be a key transitional work between European and American noir and compares it with the 1947 Hollywood remake, The Long Night
