Abstract: "For years one has dreamed of Paris," wrote Djuna Barnes In 1922, "...thinking in my heart of all unknown churches... Paris evenings...and children trying not to grow out of their clothes before they can get around the corner and home, and a slow haze, while at regulated Intervals, water can be heard dripping, dripping, dripping."1 And I say to myself, shall I tell the world what Paris meant to me, or shall I let it sit In its clubs, and Its libraries and its homes with Mark Twain and Arthur Symons on Its knee, and such desultory sketches as may have fallen from the reeking pens of women, while learning all that Americans failed to notice, on some garden urn?"2
