Autograph letter signed Jean c à henri duvernois [ville de monts] indre-et-loire, 26 September 1913, 1 p. In-8 autograph address on the back.
Typing annotation with another hand at the upper margin. Rare youthful letter of cocteau in which he goes back in detail on the last work dhenri duvernois: nounette where the goddess with a hundred mouths. My dear henri, I had a hundred eyes to read nounette [where the goddess with a hundred mouths] and I would sew a hundred mouths to rent it. The funny one is incomparable.I fear him, my child, it will rain to mr. Hurlu and when I want it verses that Madame recite are definitive. Lucid tenderness still seems to me the best. Incognito is full of poetry; accuracy, and if I see myself again with mad.
Carlier, castiglione for life, with a black loulou, a kaleidoscope! Ps: I love the end of the mummified restaurant.
Jean cocteau was born into a wealthy and important Parisian family that supported his artistic career, although some biographies suggest that his fortune would have allowed him to leave his parents' house on his 15th birthday. He published his first collection of poems on account of author, the daladin lamp inspired by the thousand and one nights, in 1909 and then became known in bohemian artistic circles as the frivolous prince. It is moreover under this title that he published his second collection of poems in 1910. Later his encounter with serge diaghilev, whom he wants to surprise, marks the first crisis in his creative work: he denies his collections of poems and gets closer to the cubist and futuristic lavant-garde.
