He had enormous influence not only on the generation of French poets who followed the Second War – Cocteau, Fombeure and Prévert – but on the first modern Canadian poet, W.W.E. Ross. These translations appear in Ross’s recently released Irreralities, Sonnets and Laconics (Exile Editions). The books of Max Jacob are: Les Ouevres Burlesques et Mystiques de Frère Matorel, Le Cornet à dés, La Défense de Tartuffe, Le Laboratoire Central, Art Poétique, Les Pénitents en Maillots Roses, Morceaux Choisis, and Derniers Poèms.
