PAR SES AMIS'
Jules Jouy was a nineteenth century singer-songwriter and poet based in Montmartre. He came from a working-class background and began his working life as a butcher's boy. Self-educated, his early writings were published in La Tintamarre and Le Sans-culotte. He later edited Les Hydropathes, but died insane at the relatively tender age of forty-two after excessive indulgence in tobacco and absinthe took their toll on him.
