Jean Genet (1910-1986) is one of the most decisive writers of the 20th century. His work, consisting of poems, autobiographical novels, plays and short essays, was the subject of violent attacks, which were still strong after his death. We want to see only indecency, provocation or naked homosexuality. His defense of revolutionary movements made him a "declared enemy". This Understanding Genet intends to break with the images of Epinal: Genet is at war, and first against himself. What is he looking for? May Evil explode and leave readers and spectators lost, haggard, finding no recourse except in themselves!
