WHAT Valéry said of his own treatment of Descartes doubtless applies equally to my treatment, in this book, of Valéry himself.

He was born and raised in the south of France, where he received a Roman Catholic. Valery wrote on a remarkable range of subjects, and - like Rilke or Baudelaire - was almost as interested in art as literature.
