French novelist, playwright and poet Jean Genet was born in Paris in 1910. Abandoned by his parents, he spent much of his youth in an institution for juvenile delinquents.
In 1943, after being imprisoned for theft, Genet began writing. His plays rely heavily on ritual, transformation, illusion and interchangeable identities and his experiences in prison inform much of his work. Genet’s other plays include Deathwatch, The Balcony, The Blacks and The Screens, he wrote several novels and film scripts and produced a silent film, Un Chant D'Amour (1949)
