Henry de MONTHERLANT (1896-1972). 6 L.A.S.,... - Lot 137 - Ader
Henry de MONTHERLANT (1896-1972). 6 L.A.S., [1935]-1951, to Maurice Rostand; 4 pages in-8 and 7 pages in-4 (some cracks and edges a little bit frayed). Friday [1935]. He missed the representation of the Trial of Oscar Wilde... November 3, 1943, on Remember, Madam: "You are without doubt the only one today who can mix truths with symbols, to attack with such courage our old myths"... July 3, 1944. "Your article on Son of No One comes to me from the depths of eternity, doesn't it? December 1943... It's already an old play. " He quotes The Dead Queen: "I love that you love her she is dearer to me" ... March 19, 1950. On the occasion of the publication of Maurice Rostand's Poésies Complètes. "I was fourteen years old when I bought the Page of Life, and many of their verses, since then, have not left my memory, so in love yet with oblivion. I have found them again in your collection, and with them my youth, to which I remain dangerously attached. Your poetry touches me, continues to touch me, while that of my cadets seems to me only a dry hoax. ...] What beautiful and broad poems in the unpublished ones! But it is here, however, that I part from you for the first time. For if we have only two goals, suicide or prayer, then, my dear Maurice Rostand, it is all a matter of choice: straightened hands, like those of Anna de Noailles; or perhaps one of them holding a Plutarch, where one learns how to die without praying"... June 1, 1951. "I heard a lot of good things about your play all day long - and from people, sometimes, who were warned against it or against you," like Maurice Garçon. He won't go to see it: "I hate to go to the theatre", but would like to read it...
