Delphine Lecompte

Delphine Lecompte (b. 1978): When asked about the autobiographical slant to her poems, Lecompte herself once stated in an interview that “Jean Cocteau said, ‘Je suis un mensonge qui dit toujours la vérité’ – ‘I am a lie that always tells the truth’ – but I would prefer to say, ‘I am a truth that always lies’. I am constantly confessing, but I slip lies into those confessions, and that gives me pleasure”.
