Henri montherlant

Postby Karan В» 04.03.2020

.

Henry de Montherlant began writing in earnest after he came home wounded from the Great War, a decorated veteran. France in the s made him a literary star, awarding him the Grand Prix —yet he hated the Third Republic. Montherlant, a true misfit, had many such contrarian tendencies: though he was gay, he wrote caustic articles for right-wing magazines and loathed modernity. His plays were staged, his novels published. In , he swallowed cyanide and, to make sure, shot himself in the head. His literary biographer Lucille Becker writes,.

They were indifferent to the counsel of a man who had been unable to accord his own life to his principles. In high school, Montherlant was expelled for an affair with another male student. The novel was rereleased in by Quartet Encounters, which as far as I can tell no longer exists. The hawks were her creditors. He and his uncle must part ways. The narrative clock is set to ticking. He reads soiled newspapers, gathers bits of string and bread and rescues used stamps from the garbage.

It was malevolence that kept him alive, for malevolence, like alcohol, is a preservative. After a certain age, every biting word uttered, every anonymous letter posted, every calumny spread abroad wins you another few months from the tomb, because it stimulates your vitality. This can also be seen among animals: a particularly cruel hen, a stubborn horse or a vicious dog will live long than its fellows.

Look at his characters. They are the mumbling men and women you pass on the street, the detritus of history, the malign, the incompetent, the ill-dressed, the politically unsavory, who are ground into nothing by the courts, the bureaucracies, the bill-collectors, the police. Montherlant has been called a pederast, a fascist, a misogynist.

Perhaps he was all of these. However uncharitable he could be, he was a perfect expression of his moment: the poisoned atmosphere of the s, the Popular Front years in France, the Spanish Civil War, the financial chaos, the head-spinning rise of fascism. It was an age that brought out the worst in those like Montherlant, who chose one side over the other, grew into its vile expressions, and excused great sins while braying about their ideals.

The protagonist, Don Celestino, is an anarchist veteran of the Spanish Civil War, having fought for the losing Republican faction, and has lived out decades as a miserable refugee in Paris, with an unsteady grasp of French and a marked disinterest in his adopted country.

Yes, he wrote a few wretched books. Les jeunes filles has been rightfully excoriated for its easy misogyny, famously dismantled by Simone de Beauvoir in The Second Sex. His story collection, Allegheny Front , is forthcoming in May. Remember Me. Henry de Montherlant, c.

During the war he remained in Paris and continued to write plays, poems, essays, and worked as a war correspondent. Love, for Costals, is not romantic love, which he considers a hoax, but an inherently transient mixture of affection and desire. How does Amazon calculate star ratings?

While working as a corre spondent for Benri, he was wounded in while trailing behind an infantry unit. Living for pleasure can more info a very boring business, as the autobiographies of prominent erotomaniacs make all too clear. Feb 03, Deborah rated it it was amazing Shelves:
