Fiction. Translated from the French by Christine Schwartz Hartley and Anna Moschovakis. COMMENTARY is a narrative—hovering between the genres of memoir, theory, and fiction—about a female artist whose abandonment by a lover precipitates a refiguration of her ideas on life, love and art. Sauvageot died, after many stints in sanatoriums, at the age of 34. Commentaire was highly prasied in its time by Paul Claudel, Paul Valéry, André Gide, Charles Du Bos, René Crevel ou Clara Malraux. This edition is co-translated by Christine Schwartz Hartley (African Psycho) and Anna Moschovakis (The Jokers, The Possession).

When, in the morning, daybreak awakens us f rom a dream, we close our eyes and remain still, trying to recreate and continue the scene. But the day's light has destroyed everything: words are without sound, gestures without meaning. It is like a vanishing rainbow: some hues survive for an instant, disappear, seem to return: there is nothing left.

About the Author:

Born in 1900, Marcelle Sauvageot was conneted to the Surrealists by friendship, love, and artistic practice, but as is often the case, she has been excluded from the dominant narrative about that movement—until a reissue of her single book, Commentaire (initially retitled Laissez-Moi) was published in Paris in 2002, prompting a revival of interest in her work and inspiring a successful one-woman show.
