COCTEAU Jean‎

‎Le cordon umbilical‎

Plon, Paris 1962, 14.5x20cm, paperback.

Copy of the print on current paper, after 200 numbered (100 vellum pure lafuma yarn and 100 vellum pure Navarre thread)

Backs and edges of dishes a little yellowed, slight traces of manipulations, if not solid volume, impeccable interior (See photos).


A text apart in his work where, free of any coquettishness, he questions the creation and responds to the reproach of dispersion that has been addressed to him: " I've been looking for 30 years.

The Umbilical Cordon is the one that connects the creator to his characters during the development of a work, and which must then be cut off so that the creatures he has spawned, his "sons", as he calls them, live their lives to them, on the stage or in the minds of the readers, who appropriate them and modify them in return.
