Long seen as a legendary figure by her admirers, Djuna Barnes has increasingly come to be recognized as a major American author over the decades. She is best known for her fictional masterwork, Nightwood; but she wrote also other works of fiction, Ladies Almanack and Ryder, a three-act drama, The Antiphon, and various short fictions, poems, plays, and other entertainments. With Eugene O'Neill and Edna St. Vincent Millay, Barnes helped to establish the Provincetown Players early in the 20th century. And in the 1920s she lived in Paris, where her wit and brilliant writing won her close friendships with T.S. Eliot, James Joyce, Peggy Guggenheim, and other well-known expatriates. When she returned to the United States in the next decade, she helped to found The Theater Guild. Barnes died in New York City in 1982.
