« Living on the Sound of My Voice ». Aspects of writing of the self in Anna de Noailles’ Le Livre de ma vie (The Book of My Life)
Throughout an attentive reading of Anna de Noailles’ autobiographical book, Le Livre de ma vie (1932), we will explore various aspects of autobiographical writing such as: the relation between time and memory, the work of recollecting and constructing a multiple identity, the springs of literary and existential becoming, the importance of reading and of meeting the personalities of the time on the creation of an insatiable spirit of culture. A true ethical concern seems to govern Anna de Noailles’ works and exploits, always in search for an authentic writing, faithful to life, considered as a principle of work.
