THE EARTHLY PARADISE

of Jules Vernes and La Guerre de Demain by Captain Danrit. In one corner there was a rabbit hutch out of which I made a fort and there I dug trenches and played war games by myself. I was thinking of our garden in Elbeuf when I wrote in Climats about the childhood of Philippe Marcenat. Once a week the laundress, an old Alsatian woman, would come to boil the linen in a hot and mysterious wash house, whose very name buanderie sounded evil to me. I loved to see the deposits of soap that formed at the bottom of the wooden wash tub and to touch its soft and slippery sides. Sometimes, too, I would work with the gardener who planted our flower beds, as was customary at Elbeuf, with a centre of begonias or geraniums and a border of forget-me-nots or heliotrope. Toward the end of summer the sawyer would come to prepare our winter supply of wood. His work fascinated me. The noise of the saw, the clean country smell of the wood, the sawdust which formed a thick soft mattress on the ground, the exciting instant when the log, completely cut through, parted and fell into two pieces, all this constituted a spectacle of which I never tired. .
The events that broke the monotony of our days were petty. When there was to be `company for dinner' we would lie in wait for the arrival of the pastry man who always brought the same vanilla and strawberry bombeglace in the shape of a truncated cone surmounted by a rose-coloured ball, and the same plates of pet its fours: glazed walnuts with pistachios, candied chestnuts, stuffed dates and tiny chocolate eclairs. When my parents went to the theatre, which happened two or three times a year when a travelling company stopped at Elbeuf, they would bring us home a bag of candy bearing, as long as they lasted, the name of the play:
`The. Malade imaginaires are good,' we used to say, `but the Demi Mondes were better . . . '
One day my parents went to see Les Surprises du Divorce, and the same evening the hairdresser of Elbeuf in an access of jealousy shot his wife with a revolver. The two events became confused in my mind and for a long time I believed that a divorce was a pistol duel fought on the stage of the Municipal Theatre. In a child's mind words are not well defined; they designate zones of emotion more or less extensive and not clearly bounded; in this respect many adults remain children all their lives.
On Twelfth Night in Normandy crowds of children with lighted lanterns used to come to all the doors and sing:
