One discovers an aerial view of Paris through the wall and ceiling holes. It creates vertigo. On the iron bed lies a fainted bride. Behind her stand several dismayed ladies. On the right, a very elegant lady washes her hands in a flophouse basin. Through the unhinged door on the left, a lady enters with raised arms. Others are pushed against the walls. The vision provoking this catastrophe is a bride-witch astride a broom, flying through the ceiling, her hair and train streaming.
Jean Cocteau never hid his homosexuality. He was the author of the mildly homoerotic and semi-autobiographical Le livre blanc translated as The White Paper or The White Book ,  published anonymously in He never repudiated its authorship and a later edition of the novel features his foreword and drawings. The novel begins:. As far back as I can remember, and even at a age when the mind does not yet influence the senses, I find traces of my love of boys.

In recent years several albums of Cocteau's homoerotica have been available to the general public. In the s, Cocteau is rumoured to have had a very brief affair with Princess Natalie Paley , the daughter of a Romanov Grand Duke and herself a sometime actress, model, and former wife of couturier Lucien Lelong. Actually, according to author Roger Peyrefitte , Cocteau was devastated after a breach with his longtime friend and patroness Francine Weisweiller [ citation needed ].

Monsieur, I have just received your letter and must reply despite my regret at being unable to explain the inexplicable. It is possible that my friendship for your son and my deep admiration for his gifts which are becoming increasingly apparent are of an uncommon intensity, and that from the outside it is hard to make out how far my feelings go.
His literary future is of primary consideration with me: he is a kind of prodigy. Scandal would spoil all this freshness.
