Mauriac, François Books

Nouveaux MÉmoires IntÉrieurs/more Reflections From the Soul
1991 0-7734-9616-5
In various sections of the Reflections, Mauriac discusses the nature of art, Christianity, childhood recollections, the Nietzschean ethos and many other topics. All of the book's thirteen chapters, plus an epilogue, an untitled section, and finally a postface treat topics which, in their arrangement, seem disparate. What sets this work apart from other reflections on the past is the poetry with which Mauriac infuses every topic. Although his experiences are his own, they evoke similar memories on the part of his reader.
