THE WALKYRIE

(or Louve), ran along the foot of the hills and nibbled at the banks of the Essendieras fields.
In addition to Madame de Caillavet and Madame Pouquet, I found there the latter's husband, a mining engineer whose alert and precise intelligence I quickly learned to value; Simone's grandmother, a fine old lady, but a little confused; and Miss Varley, a super-English Englishwoman and passionate Victorian. To be honest, during these ten days, I saw hardly anyone but Simone de Caillavet, for she had undertaken to show me Perigord and we were on the go from morning till night. At Essendieras I felt in love simultaneously with the landscapes of Perigord and with the woman who showed them to me. She passionately loved her province and talked about it with a profound and living knowledge of its ways that I found attractive. Each village had its chateau, each chateau its legend. My companion told me the story of La Fileuse of Jumilhac and that of the chatelaine of Montal, the story of the chateau of Biron and of the chateau of Hautefort. She took me on literary pilgrimages in honour of Montaigne, Brantome, Fenelon - and to Montignac where Joubert and Eugene Le Roy had lived. She knew all about these men and their works, and I was struck by the seriousness and soundness of her mind.
I went down into the chasm of Padirac; I climbed with her by precipitous roads to the tableland of Domme, whence one can see the lovely valley of the Dordogne framed by graceful fortresses and by serried rows of poplars. If she had been a coquette, she would have found a hundred occasions, during these many difficult passages, to fall into my arms, but I found her timid, apprehensive, reserved, almost unsociable. Although she had been married, she retained some of the qualities of a young girl. She had been raised most religiously, with a horror of sin and a fear of profane love. `Apt at suffering and more fearful of joy than of sorrow,' Anatole France had written of her. When she talked about love it was in an heroic, Wagnerian sense. Valkyrie surrounded with thorns and flames, she awaited Siegfried, but with a strange dread. In the course of my life I had known bold virgins, passionate girl students and idle women of Paris; I was ill prepared to understand a puritan who could not enter upon passion except after a long stage of tenderness.
Later she admitted to me that she had been obsessed by the romance of her grandmother with Anatole France, and she had always hoped to
