Although not autobiographical in any usual sense, Valéry’s novel is profoundly personal. Monsieur Teste reflects Valéry’s preoccupation with the phenomenon of a mind detached from sensibility, yet he is also an ordinary fictional character. This volume includes “Snapshots of Monsieur Teste,” excerpts from Valéry’s Cahiers.
