Printed invitation. To a party at Barney's home on the rue Jacob in Paris; and its original envelope, addressed to "Monsieur Edouard [         ]."
This corrected typescript of an unpublished essay, in French, was written around 1925, sixteen years after Vivien's suicide. With Barney's emendations throughout the text, and with a penultimate paragraph added in her hand.
In this essay on the work of her former lover, Barney explains Vivien's poetic sensibility; at the beginning, for example, she writes that Vivien's poems were inspired by her perversity for satisfying a need for personal suffering. She also intersperses portions of Vivien's poems throughout the text.
