Letter from Thomas MacGreevy to George Yeats 14 April 1927 Thomas MacGreevy National Library of Ireland. Autograph letter signed. NLI MS 30,859

MacGreevy has recently been visited by Lennox, Dolly, and Hester and hopes the Yeatses can visit as well. He is slightly bored in Paris and cannot find anyone interesting to talk to. He does however get to go to musical performances and has been asked by Eliot to write a book on Diaghaleff ballets, which he might do for the money. He will soon do a lecture at the Sorbonne about Irish theater. He asks if he should mention The Resurrection with the other plays by WB. He himself has been having trouble finishing his own Noh play. He is sending Cocteau's Orphee for Yeats, which he considers 'not good art' but with 'an odd personal quality.' He closes by asking for all the news of Dublin that he couldn't get from Lennox and recounts who among their acquaintance he has recently seen.
