BETWEEN ALAIN AND KIPLING

same authors: Balzac, Stendhal, Tolstoy, Kipling. I loved the moral preoccupations of Tolstoy. In the beginning I felt very close to Levine in his discontent with life and his constant readiness to renounce the world and devote himself to austerities. Then I came to believe that Prince Andre in War and Peace, the disciplined soldier, silent and ready to submit to fate at his post without a murmur, was the finest human type. To this I added the thought from Marcus Aurelius that it is not difficult to be a sage in solitude but it is a rarer and nobler thing to be a sage on the throne and in the press of great affairs. There it seemed to me lay the solution of my problem of conscience. It was not a wholly safe solution, for the devil might choose this roundabout way of reassuring the Emperor or the Rich Man.
Meanwhile Kipling played a role of the first importance in my little spiritual drama. To the radical views of Alain - those of the embattled citizen defying the authorities and fearing tyranny above all - Kipling opposed the idea of a necessary hierarchy. A society divided against itself will perish, the Stories of Kipling said to me; a society that will not accept a leader will perish. Even the beasts submitted to the laws of the jungle in order to survive. But, on the other hand, Kipling'sleaders had to show themselves worthy to command through their courage and abnegation. I loved the type of Anglo-Indian he held up for our admiration: A good technician devoted body and soul to his task, mysterious and silent, loyal to his friends and severe with the rebels. There again I found a picture of what I believed a captain of industry should be. In my copy books of that time I find impassioned dialogues, by myself with myself, in which I defended by turns the thesis of Kipling and that of Alain.
Every writer has his personal themes, the projections of strong sentiments that have forced him to write, and despite himself most of his books are built around these themes. Thus Stendhal, engrossed with the young man he would have liked to be, pictures him under the names of Fabrice, of Julien Sorel and Lucien Leuwen. Thus Dickens is obsessed with the idea of the child wife. Although I was not conscious of it, these interior dialogues were slowly forming in me a writer whose essential theme would be the opposition of two equally sincere sentiments and the necessity of reconciling these two halves of himself in order to go on living.
