Valéry : Tenter de vivre

Paul Valéry est bien autre selected que ce que los angeles postérité a fait de lui.

Derrière l’académicien aux éternelles moustaches se cache un penseur qui, toute sa vie, de silences en éclats, s’est débattu avec son désir de littérature. Derrière le disciple de Mallarmé, le poète glorieux et le contempteur du roman, voici un prosateur à los angeles langue superbe, énergique et multiforme. Derrière l’écrivain mondain, c’est un homme désargenté, contraint, pour « faire bouillir los angeles marmite », de servir un vieillard des décennies durant ou de monnayer ses propres manuscrits. Derrière le pur esprit, on découvre l’ami exigeant de Gide et de Louÿs, mais aussi un amant fragile et brûlant dans sa liaison tourmentée avec Catherine Pozzi ou ses passions pour Renée Vautier et Jeanne Loviton.

Les funérailles nationales du 25 juillet 1945 furent celles d’un homme au destin tragique, pour qui « tenter de vivre » ne fut pas que l. a. moitié d’un vers.

Impénitent lecteur de Valéry, nourri d’archives et de correspondances inédites, Benoît Peeters nous livre le portrait empathique d’une des plus fascinantes figures d’écrivain qui ait jamais existé, et renouvelle avec brio los angeles lecture de son œuvre.

AndreasSalome´ plays Rilke’s work against the ‘‘unproductive’’ onanism, furthering his obsession with a closed system of angels and devils, creation and destruction.

This is impossible, utopian. And yet Rilke comes close to this by letting the white metaphors of truth—the suns and stars in his poetry—burn themselves out. What endures is nothing but the poem, which in its final lines leaves its metaphorical matrix behind. New Poems’s final poem also leaves behind the two earlier Buddha poems, whose metaphors all orbited the unnamed, white metaphor of the sun, as our guiding star, as truth.
