The Tortured Life of Scofield Thayer

James Dempsey

University Press of Florida

This chapter concerns the marriage of Bryher (Winifred Ellerman) to Robert McAlmon in the winter of 1921. Bryher was a wealthy lesbian, and this was very much a marriage of convenience for both. Bryher would be free to travel, and McAlmon would receive money for his publishing ventures. The marriage shocked even the bohemian Greenwich Village folk. Thayer's reaction to this was excessive but telling. He mocked the union mercilessly in The Dial.

Keywords:   Bohemian, Bryher, Winifred Ellerman, Greenwich Village, H.D, marriage of convenience, Robert McAlmon
