LIFE MUST GO ON

whole pages of those little Chinese wands? You seem to produce a sort of strange painting in place of letters. It's delightful, it's more like watercolour painting or gardening than writing.'
I asked to see this writing that resembled a Chinese garden, and like Proust I found it surprising. It had a deliberate, restrained grace.
Marcel Proust to Madame de Caillavet: `Strange that one can love opposite physical types. For here am I in love with your daughter. How naughty she is to be agreeable, for it is her smile that has made me fall in love and that gives meaning to her whole person. If she had frowned, how completely at peace I should be. I am searching for the species of flower whose petals are exactly like her cheeks when she laughs ... I should like to see her laugh again.'
Bernard Grasset let me read a preface, that Anatole France had written, for a volume of verse Les Heures Latines published in 1918 by Simone de Caillavet when she was quite young. France had drawn a curious portrait of her. He represented her as a girl who was `mysterious, haughty, a little wild'.
`At five years of age Simone was writing novels in a firm hand in school notebooks. One is surprised that she undertook them; the admirable thing is that she completed them ... One cannot will to will. Simone could use her will. She was born resolute. That can be seen from her firm little mouth, her determined chin, the way she carries her head and from her whole purposeful manner ... There is something predestined about a child whom a familiar spirit inspires, contending for attention with her dolls.'
He found that resolute soul again in the form and substance of her verses: `Stubborn, attracted by obstacles, she instinctively chose a difficult art. She liked to find resistance in the medium. She is, in the noblest sense of the word, a young craftsman. May she proudly accept this name. Minerva the Craftsman, thus the Athenians called their goddess.'
Proust himself has shown how all a man's tastes enter into the composition of his loves and how Swann who was mad about painting was captivated by Odette on the day when he found a resemblance between her and one Zephora, daughter of Jethro, as painted by Botticelli. I knew hardly anything about Madame de Caillavet; I was ignorant of all the details of her life, of her tastes, of her character; but a young woman who, as a child, had strolled through the museums of Paris with Anatole France
