This potentially self-constitutive dimension of the Album was certainly for Valéry its ultimate justification ... [Its somewhat dated tone is] the result of his intention to mount a critical engagement with his heritage, to offer a portrait gallery of predecessors whose faces emerge transfigured and transvalued according to the exigencies of a new poetics.” Thus, Nash continues, “The Album de vers anciens ... is a particularly precious and innovative poetic document, one which holds, inscribed within its structure, the poet’s interpretation of his creative confrontation with his past.

We are tending toward the condition of science and aspiring to do it. “Lust” allegorizes this profound conflict, never resolved by Valéry. What he reproaches psychoanalysis for is not that it interprets in such or such a fashion, but quite simply that it interprets at all, that it is an interpretation, that it is interested above all in signification, in meaning, and in some principal unity—here, a sexual unity—of meaning.”  Valéry in fact went so far as to donate money to aid the widow of Colonel Henry, who in 1898 killed himself when it became known that he had forged the documents used to incriminate Dreyfus.

However, the American poet Allen Tate, a well-known member of the Southern Agrarian movement that flourished particularly during the 1920s and 1930s, has recorded in his Memoirs and Opinions, 1926-1974 that “Here, in [Valéry’s] ‘Pages Inedites’ [‘Unpublished Pages’], was a man educated in the French classical tradition and fired imaginatively by his early entretiens with Mallarmé: whose apparently casual utterances gave me something more than the shock of recognition. A corollary of these convictions was the idea that no pure literature was possible as long as the writer thought of himself as addressing a public. Critics have called Valéry the last French symbolist, the first post-symbolist, a masterful classical prosodist, and an advocate of logical positivism. Paul Valéry (1871 – 1945) : De la mer océane - Le bar à poèmes One might say that he projected the visionary aspect, usually recognized in Poe, onto Pascal, while making Rene Descartes, Pascal’s contemporary, a figure of what he admired in Poe, a logician and scientist. Some facts about Valéry might predict a less than faultless comportment on Valéry’s part during World War II and France’s occupation by Germany: first, he had been quietly but strongly “anti-Dreyfusard” during the famous Dreyfus affair, in which Emile Zola and others accused the French army and government of anti-Semitism in making a scapegoat of Captain Alfred Dreyfus during his 1894 trial for treason. It was rather the sense of my own identity, of a sameness within vast, elusive differences.” It may be in the enduring classicism of Southern letters, passed from Tate to such contemporary Southern writers as Reynolds Price, Fred Chappell, and James Applewhite, that Valéry’s voice, through the veil of translation, can be heard most clearly today. Valéry was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 12 different years. Esbozo de una serpiente Helena. Voir ici une anthologie des poèmes de la langue française.

Although Mallarmé and French poet Charles Baudelaire had celebrated the visionary qualities in Poe, Valéry most fully admired his powers of reason, as revealed through Poe’s pseudo-scientific meditation on the nature of human knowledge, “Eureka,” and through his brilliant practical logician, Auguste Dupin, the detective of “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” and “The Purloined Letter.” “Valéry’s unyielding positivism (rationalism) is thus another characteristic setting him apart from other French writers. As long as the audience for a text was kept in mind, Valéry wrote in his Notebooks, “there are always reserves in one’s thoughts, a hidden intention in which is to be found a whole stock of charlatanism. A brief comparison of Valéry’s famous poem “The Young Fate” (“La Jeune Parque”) to Mallarmé’s “Herodiade” concretely illustrates the nature of the older writer’s influence on the young one. His father, Barthelmy Valéry, was a customs officer at the sea port of Sète, and his mother, Fanny Grassi, who was the daughter of an Italian consul and a descended from Venetian nobility. Clearly, Valéry was heir to the symbolist tradition of another French poet, Stéphane Mallarmé, whom he knew and venerated, who encouraged his early work, and whose other young disciples—Pierre Louis in particular—got Valéry’s work published. James Lawler, probably the most prominent and reliable American critic of Valéry’s work, has, in The Poet as Analyst: Essays on Paul Valéry, convincingly explained Valéry’s interest in “Eureka”: “Quite apart from Poe’s poetics, here was a work that fascinated [Valéry] by its scientific theories, by its poetic subject ... [‘the expression of a generalized will to relativity’] and, significantly, by the form adopted, which coincides, one may say, with Valéry’s own literary practice in La Jeune Parque [The Young Fate] and Charmes [Charms] ... [‘example and enactment of the reciprocity of appropriation’].” In “Eureka” Poe described knowledge and being as part of an interconnected system: “In the original unity of the first thing lies the secondary cause of all things, with the germ of their inevitable annihilation.” From Poe’s theory Valéry extracted his own, odd fusion of the visionary and the logical, the mystical and the rational, which he however refused to admit as anything but pure science and logic. Of an early poem on this subject, “Narcissus Speaks” (“Narcisse Parle”), he wrote (quoted in volume I of Oeuvres [Works]): “The theme of Narcissus, which I have chosen, is a sort of poetic autobiography which requires a few explanations and indications.

Valéry conceived himself as an anti-philosopher, and he despised the new discipline of psychology as it was emerging in the work of neurologist and psychoanalytical pioneer Sigmund Freud, because both philosophy and psychology sought to do precisely what he wished to avoid: to interpret, to reduce, the form of thought, event, and act to a content. Whom shall I kill? 14, "Analects," ed. Le Bois Amical. Yet his reasons for remaining faithful to form—more so, in many instances, than Baudelaire and Mallarmé who were formalists but innovative ones—were much more interesting than a mindless traditionalism.

Ode secrète. 0. However, the poet did prove sympathetic to the Free French Movement led by General Charles de Gaulle, and of the Nazis he wrote in “War Economy for the Mind”: “As for our enemies, we, and the whole world, know that their politics with regard to the mind has been reduced or limited for ten years to repressing the developments of intelligence, to depreciating the value of pure research, to taking often atrocious measures against those who consecrated themselves to these things, to favoring, even as far as endowed chairs and laboratories, worshippers of the idol to the detriment of independent creators of spiritual richness, and they have imposed on the arts as on the sciences the utilitarian ends which a power founded on declamations and terror pursues.” Moreover, his praise of Bergson was regarded as a courageous act. Almost from the beginning of the garden-scene Lust shows her love for Faust, and immediately after Faust’s great monologue, she unconsciously places her hand upon his shoulder. 2. Mallarmé’s ambiguously positive response to Valéry’s early work was reported by Gide: [Gide to Valéry, July 12, 1892] “My friend, Mallarmé has given me your poems; since he criticized them, he must esteem them. In The Tell-Tale Heart: The Life and Works of Edgar Allan Poe, Julian Symons has described Poe as divided between two obsessive tendencies in his writings, a visionary one and a logical one. Why the young man should have been so inspired by this circumstantial evocation of the Narcissus story is perhaps suggested by a line—“I endlessly delight in my own brain”—appearing in a poem written in 1887.

Teste might be thought of as a precursor of the figure Faust, but without the opposing figure of Lust. Paul Valéry. I keep what I want.’”. He followed the Album of Old Verses with Charms (“songs” or “incantations”) in 1922, and had written his first quasi-Platonic dialogues, Eupalinos; or, The Architect (Eupalinos; ou, L`architecte) and The Soul and the Dance (L’Ame et la danse) in 1921. Acontece o mesmo com o número dos amigos. Indeed, Valéry’s poetic output slowed to the merest trickle from 1892 to 1912 because at that time he apparently judged literature not the best medium for “enjoying his brain.”, The events of Valéry’s life clearly influenced the development of his poetic theories and practices.
