Item Description: Frankfurt am Main : Suhrkamp Verlag, 1965. Book Condition: Sehr gut. 95 (7) Seiten. 18,4 cm. Schutzumschlag: Willy Fleckhaus. Sehr guter Zustand. - Ambroise Paul Toussaint Jules Valéry (* 30. Oktober 1871 in Sète, Département Hérault; † 20. Juli 1945 in Paris) war ein französischer Lyriker, Philosoph und Essayist. Leben: Nach seiner Kindheit in der kleinen südfranzösischen Hafenstadt Sète als Sohn eines höheren Beamten verbrachte Valéry seine Jugendjahre in Montpellier und studierte dort auch Jura. Schon früh begann er Gedichte zu schreiben. 1894 ging er nach Paris, wo er André Gide und vor allem Stéphane Mallarmé kennenlernte, der ihm zum Vorbild wurde. 1896/97 arbeitete er bei einer Presseagentur in London. 1897 erhielt er eine Anstellung als Redakteur beim Kriegsministerium, wo er unter anderem eine längere Studie über die expandierende deutsche Wirtschaft anfertigte. Anschließend arbeitete er kurz bei der Nachrichtenagentur Agence Havas. 1900 wurde er Privatsekretär bei einem Wirtschaftsmagnaten, bis er später von seinen Einkünften als freier Schriftsteller leben konnte. Im selben Jahr heiratete er Jeannie Gobillard, eine Nichte der Malerin Berthe Morisot. Aus dieser Ehe gingen die Kinder Claude, Agathe und François hervor. Um 1920 galt Valéry als der größte französische Lyriker seiner Zeit und genoss hohes Ansehen auch im übrigen intellektuellen Europa. In diesem Jahr begann auch seine acht Jahre währende tiefe Freundschaft und intellektuelle Beziehung zur Dichterin Catherine Pozzi (1884–1934), deren Tagebücher darüber detailliert Zeugnis ablegen. 1923 wurde er zum Chevalier de la Légion d’honneur (d. h. Ritter der Ehrenlegion), 1931 zum Komtur und 1938 zum Großoffizier ernannt. 1925 wurde er in die Académie française aufgenommen, deren Präsident er zeitweilig war. 1937 wurde Valéry mit einer wohldotierten Professur für Poetik am Collège de France ausgezeichnet. In der Zeit der Besetzung Frankreichs durch deutsche und italienische Truppen weigerte sich Valéry, mit den Besatzungsmächten zusammenzuarbeiten. Als er dann am 9. Januar 1941 in der Sorbonne eine Gedächtnisrede zu Ehren des jüdischen Philosophen Henri Bergson" hielt, kostete ihn dieser Text seine Stellung als Direktor des Centre Universitaire Méditerranéen durch Erlass der Vichy-Regierung. Nach seinem Tod ordnete Charles de Gaulle ein Staatsbegräbnis an. Valéry wurde seinem Wunsch gemäß in seiner Geburtsstadt Sète auf dem Cimetière marin begraben, den er in einem Gedicht besungen hatte. In Sète befindet sich auch ein Valéry-Museum, das sein Andenken aktiv durch Ausstellung und Kolloquien pflegt. Valéry war wohl der letzte Autor in Frankreich, der mit Lyrik seinen Lebensunterhalt bestreiten konnte. Er hatte den Status eines Dichterfürsten, der mit gut bezahlten Auftragsarbeiten von Verlagen und Zeitschriften bedacht und häufig zu Vorträgen und Lesungen eingeladen wurde. Nach ihm sank die ein ganzes Jahrhundert lang in Frankreich so erfolgreiche Lyrik zu einer Gattung von eher marginaler Bedeutung ab. Er war befreundet mit R. M. Rilke, Herbert Steiner und der Malerin Marie Elisabeth Wrede, die das Porträt von Valery in einer repräsentativen Kaltnadelradierung festhielt.[1] Schaffen: Das lyrische Werk: In seiner ersten und späten Lebenszeit verfasste Valéry vor allem Vers- und Prosagedichte. Mit diesen stand er anfangs den Symbolisten nahe. Später, nach einer längeren Schaffenskrise, strebte er eine „reine Poesie" (poésie pure) an, die durch Verzicht auf Darstellung von Gefühlen oder äußeren Realitäten gedankliche Präzision und formale Vollendung zu vereinen versucht. Zum Symbol dieser hermetischen Dichtung wurden Narziss und das Gedicht La jeune Parque (Die junge Parze) 1917, das von Paul Celan ins Deutsche übersetzt wurde. Weitere lyrische Hauptwerke sind L'Album de vers anciens (Album alter Verse) und die Gedichtsammlung Charmes (1922, dt. "Zauber" oder "Verzauberungen"), die 1925 von Rainer Maria Rilke ins Deutsche übertragen wurde. Letztere enthält unter anderem das berühmte Gedicht Le Cimetière marin (Der Friedhof am Meer, 1920.

Item Description: Besant & Company, London, 1936. First English edition of the first four parts of French poet Paul Valéry's Teste cycle: "An Evening with Monsieur Teste," "Letter from a Friend," "Letter from Madame Emilie Teste," and "Extracts from the Log Book of Monsieur Teste," first published in French between 1896 and 1925. In the 1920s, Ronald Davis published English translations of these pieces in Paris: this Merton Gould translation was the first issued in England. Valéry would return to the symbolic figure of Edmond Teste, a reclusive stockbroker of unlimited intellectual capacity, throughout his career: "What had he done with his own self? How did he look in his own eyes? . . . He was so true, so new; so innocent of all dupery and all showplay; so hard." Valéry's unfolding narrative experiment, an exploration of the possibilities and limits of the self, became a touchstone for modernists on both sides of the Atlantic. A near-fine copy. Small octavo, original black textured cloth lettered in gilt, top edge stained black, original unclipped grey typographic dust jacket. Opening letter from Paul Valéry to translator Merton Gould (in French); translator's note and author's introduction (in English). Tiny chips to ends of dust jacket spine.
