Shapiro who has caught the full range of Prevert's irony, puns, and word play that has enchanted French readers throughout the 20th century. Jacques Prevert (1900-1977) was a poet and screenwriter who actively participated in the Surrealist movement as well as the Rue du Chateau group with Raymond Queneau and Marcel Duchamp. His poetry is taught in schools in France and his works appear in countless anthologies throughout the world.
