FREE READ ¸ Souvenirs d'égotisme Memoirs of an Egotist Stendhal’s fragmentary autobiographical work is alert wry and perpetually self uestioning Through a series of apparently random impressions of the political. This is a book by a writer primarily for other writers Stendhal is carrying out an interesting experiment and I m surprised that it hasn t had of an impact Unless you have an unusually positive view of human nature you ll agree that most autobiographies are dreadful collections of self serving lies No you said Tony Blair I never mentioned him In general it s easy to point fingers and of course some people are worse than others But even the most careful consciencious impartial seeker after truth is likely to end up with a variant on the usual mess Simone de Beauvoir who I think is about as honest as it gets complains bitterly that her memoirs are filled with mauvaise foi Churchill s History of the Second World War is brilliant but contains flagrant half truths and omissions he wasn t allowed to write about Turing and the code breakers because it was still top secret and it was psychologically impossible for him to give the reuisite weight to the story of the Eastern front If de Beauvoir and Churchill can t get it right what hope for mere mortals Stendhal was well aware of the problems and tried to cut the Gordian knot He wrote down his story very uickly with minimal or no revision as if he was writing a series of letters he also decided from the beginning that it would be published at least ten years after his death so he wouldn t have to worry about hurting people s feelings The result is interestingly different from a normal autobiography It s unavoidably incoherent in places and often comes across as just rough notes there are places where the editor says he s left up to three uarters of a page of blank space presumably intending to fill in the gap but never getting around to it Often he talks about people and places without adeuate introduction and I had one finger permanently in the end notes Stendhal scholars have spent over 150 years trying to figure out obscure references and there are still instances where they re stumped But you really do have the feeling that this is someone who s not just trying to be honest but actually succeeding a lot of the time Three things in particular stand out He spends a great deal of time regretting love affairs that either went wrong or never happened he is appalled by the dishonesty and mediocrity of nearly all his fellow writers and although he dearly loves his friends and does his best to explain their stirling ualities he s completely unable to do so They re just you know great guysEven though the first impression is of a very unfinished work there are lovely fragments scattered through the text It s rare to have three pages go by without finding something you immediately want to uote I think this was my favourite passage though many others ran it closeAvez vous jamais vu lecteur b n vole un ver soie ui a mang assez de feuille de m rier La comparaison n est pas noble mais elle est si juste Cette laide b te ne veut plus manger elle a besoin de grimper et de faire sa prison de soieTel est l animal nomm crivain Pour ui a go t de la profonde occupation d crire lire n est u un plaisir secondaire Tant de fois je croyais tre 2 heures je regardais ma pendule il tait 6 heures et demie Voil ma excuse pour avoir noirci tant de papierMy translationHave you ever seen gentle reader a silkworm who has eaten enough mulberry leaves It s not a flattering comparison but a very fair one This ugly creature no longer wants to eat it wants to climb up somewhere and start making its prison of silkThe animal called the writer is similar For someone who has tasted the profound pleasure of writing reading is no than a secondary pleasure Many times I ve believed it was 2 in the afternoon and then looked at the clock to find it was 630 There s my excuse for having blackened so much paperWell I had better get out of my cocoon and start making dinner But I do so wish I could reply to him If you happen to have a time machine please deliver this note to M Beyle in 1833 tell him that his book was by no means as dull as he feared and is still appreciated in 2010 He seemed concerned about its future success and I d like to reassure him that his experiment worked out very wellI just can t stop thinking about Stendhal s unusual book Have to give it another star in recognition of that The Littlest Marine Bachelor Battalion #1 Silhouette Desire #1167 fragmentary autobiographical work is alert wry and perpetually self uestioning Through a series of apparently random impressions of the political.
