Faith even when profound is never entireThere is considerable audacity in a project of this nature The famed philosopherplaywrightnovelist creates a memoir fifty plus years into the past a poking about in a small child's mind I hazard to say there's a some fancy in these pages Much as Sartre notes throughout most of his childhood he was acting I assume the great thinker feels compelled to craft something of stature to merit his adult achievement I will be honest I don't remember much of my early life One or two images of leaving Michigan ages 3 4 There are a few flutters after that My adoptive mother telling everyone I was reading at age two Was I I have always had books and much like Sartre I feel indebted Also just like the author I had flowing curly locks a surprise I guess after being bald for 14 months The stories bifurcate there as Sartre benefited from his grandfather's library and I read comics and books from the local public library Both of us constructed constant narratives where we were the heroes He was encouraged to write I was given a typewriter and I filled notebooks in junior high when I should have been learning geometry The second section Writing isn't as magical as the first Reading He broaches his burgeoning narrative structures slowly evolving in a stumbling gait and how everything was ultimately enriched by attending school That period of his life so deserved a further extensive treatment if only his adolescent friendship with Paul Nizan Outside of his widowed mother and tacit grandmother women do not feature large in this vision His partial blindness his diminutive stature his less than ideal looks all reflect upon this but without explicit comment

Reading and writing A brilliant work of self analysis Words provides an essential background to the philosophy of one of the profoundest thinkers of the twentieth century. I went to a play last weekend – or rather it was an event in which a scene or a part of a scene from many plays was performed by one actor A couple of scenes from two Sartre plays were performed When I came back home I had a deep urge to read a book by Sartre I decided to pick his memoir 'The Words' I had two translations of 'The Word' I chose one of them using a homegrown method and read it More on this later in the post Jean Paul Sartre wrote his memoir 'The Words' when he was fifty nine But the book covers only the first ten years of his life In the book Sartre talks about his grandparents on both sides and how they met and how his parents met how his fascination for the printed word started at a very young age how he could read books before he joined school properly During the course of his memoir Sartre touches on his relationship with his mother he says that his mother was like his elder sister and so their relationship was like that of siblings – it is very beautifully described – the scene which describes how Sartre's mother read a book to him for the very first time and the transformation that happened to her and the magic that happened is one of my favourite parts of the book and with his grandparents the history of Alsace Lorraine and how it was related to his grandparents his favourite books when he was young his love for films how he became a writer and other things In the second part of the book Sartre flits between the past and the present but he mostly stays in the past The first part of the book is called 'Reading' and the second part of the book is called 'Writing' I liked the first part of the book because it had a narrative interspersed with introspective thoughts The second part of the book had a light narrative and was heavier on introspective thoughts Normally I would like the introspective part but this time maybe because I was in an annoyed mood because I was upset with something and I wanted to rush through the book the second part looked harder and I had to plod through Maybe if I had read it with a calmer mind my experience might have been better 'The Words' is a very interesting book People have compared it with Rousseau's 'Confessions' and have called it a masterful work of self analysis The edition I read was around 250 pages long and it had big font with generous spacing between the lines giving an illusion that it would be easy going and could be read fast It was of course exactly that – an illusion It was deceptive The book demands our attention invites us to pause at important passages and linger there and rewards us if we do There were so many beautiful passages in the book that my highlighting pen didn't stop working It is not a regular memoir and it is definitely not a straightforward narrative and so it is not for everyone But if you have time and you read slowly and persevere it will unfold its beauty and secrets and reward you Now on the translations One of them was by Bernard Frechtman and the other one was by Irene Clephane I was undecided on which one to read I did a test read of both of them for a few pages and then finally decided to read the first one by Bernard Frechtman When I highlighted a passage that I loved I went back to the other translation and read that passage and compared the two translations It

Les MotsAfter his father's early death Jean Paul Sartre was brought up at his grandfather's home in a world even then eighty years out of date In Words Sartre recalls growing up. The Words Jean Paul Sartre's autobiographical work on childhood remembrance is split into two parts Reading writing and looking back from the point of view of an almost sixty year old Sartre moves on many levels Told with a philosophical romanticism for the past Sartre opens up about his first acuaintance with books and about his first desire to become a writer which having been partly raised by a grandfather who was surrounded by a world books comes as little surpriseAfter first writing about his grandparents and their families his story moved on to his parents how they met and of losing his father at a very young age Little Jean was then seen as the centre of attention during his first ten years and thus developed a selfishness something which the older Sartre didn't try to hide from when writing this book The young Sartre might not come across as wholey likeable but at least the older Sartre was being honest and not making himself out to be the model child He even ended up being expelled from school for writing a bad dictationJean Paul was a hermit in the company of other children with his grandfather being the most influential person in his development and he only fell in love with writing superficially and theatrically to begin with simply to impress his watchers But it's evidently clear that from a certain age he lived for books and writers were seen as his best friends His hyper developed sensitivity to angst and boredom even led a nine year old Sartre yes just nine to start pondering on the existential holes in people's lives And the rest as they say is history So as well as being a childhood memoir The Words also explores parts of Sartre’s craftemenship in existentialist philosophy and is generally seen as Sartre closing his literary career This book is an impressive display of the deeply literary nature of Sartre is written in way that is intelligent spontaneous sometimes difficult sometimes playful but most importantly always honest
