The short of it From the opening pages I fell head over heels for Memoires d une jeune fille rang e translated into English as Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter but literally Memoirs of a well behaved girl the first of four volumes in de Beauvoir s autobiography It s been a long time since I connected with a book at such a level of visceral sympathy since I had the feeling Yes That s what it s like for me too since I felt such a sense of loss upon turning a final page So there may be a certain lack of critical distance in this post I m declaring myself right up front to be a newly converted de Beauvoir fangirl and my only dilemma now is whether to break my book buying ban and order the second volume La force de l age right this second or whether to hold out for a gift giving holiday or upcoming trip to FranceAnd the long For me one of the greatest pleasures of Memoires d une jeune fille rang e is simply watching de Beauvoir s brain apply its lifelong training in philosophy and semiotics to the examination of her own early life Beginning with birth and ending with the completion of her secondary schooling some of the most interesting passages in this book map to what are often the boring bits of biography and autobiography de Beauvoir s early childhood She is such a keen observer and obviously so well accustomed to dissecting the way humans perceive and process the world that hers becomes an early childhood story unlike any I ve ever read before and it s especially exciting to read about her development in this regard if the reader has some slight familiarity with her existentialist feminism later in life since she does a complete about face on many issues She writes for example about her early assumption age five or so that language and other signs sprang organically necessarily and without human intervention from the things they signify so that the word vache cow was somehow a necessary and organic component of the animal itself In this mindset she could understand letters as objects an a for example but not as building blocks representing sounds that make up words In this passage she recalls the click in her brain when she finally although in a limited way grasped the concept of a signJe contemplais l image d une vache et les deux lettres c h ui se pronon aient ch J ai compris soudain u elles ne possedaient pas un nom la mani re des objets mais u elles repr sentaient un son j ai compris ce ue c est un signe J eus vite fait d apprendre lire Cependant ma pens e s arr ta en chemin Je voyais dans l image graphiue l exacte doublure du son ui lui correspondait ils manaient ensemble de la chose u ils exprimaient si bien ue leur relation ne comportait aucun arbitraire I was looking at a picture of a cow vache and the two letters c and h that together were pronounced ch I understood suddenly that they had no name in the sense that objects do but that they represented a sound I understood what a sign is It then took me very little time to learn to read However my ideas stopped there I saw in the picture the exact double of the sound corresponding to it they emanated together from the thing they expressed so well that the relation between them involved nothing arbitrary One of the many threads running through the book traces de Beauvoir s evolving understanding of signs where they come from how they work and the inescapable gap despite her early na vete between the thing itself and the sign humans have invented to indicate it There comes a period in her teenage years when language the necessity of interpreting language becomes her enemy for just this reason when we express our thoughts feelings and intentions there is always a chasm between the thing itself our interior landscape and our expression of it often this chasm is only widened when our words are interpreted by another person Despite this semiotic difficulty however de Beauvoir herself does an impeccable job of articulating her own interior landscapes at different times in her life not only as personal experiences but as ontological states capable of dissection by her as an adult Another thread that is first woven into the narrative very early is the dread inherent in the realization that we change with time that our present incarnation is different than the person we will be in the future and in ways currently dismaying or frightening to us That these changes may cease to dismay or frighten us in the future before or after they happen to us doesn t change the dread our current selves feel at being left behind replacedJe regardais le fauteuil de maman et je pensais Je ne pourrai plus m asseoir sur ses genoux Soudain l avenir existait il me changerait en une autre ui dirait moi et ne serait plus moi J ai pressenti tous les sevrages les reniements les abandons et la succession de mes morts I looked at maman s chair and I thought I won t be able to sit on her lap any Suddnely the future existed it would change me into someone else who would say me and would no longer be me I sensed all the weanings the renunciations the abandonments and the whole progression of my deaths This was one of those jolts of recognition for me I have a memory very like this of being at the zoo with my mother and grandmother when I was three or four years old and overhearing them talk about how unpleasant teenagers were Mom and Grandma probably didn t actually say this but I got the impression from their conversation that teenagers hate their parents And it suddenly dawned on me that one day I would be a teenager would I hate my parents as well But I didn t want to hate them I loved and depended upon my parents Where would this monstrous teenage me come from and how would it eat away at the love I currently felt toward my family I remember an awful feeling of dread and of impotence I didn t want to become this future self I foresaw but presumably I could do nothing to stop it I the me looking at the polar bears would be consumed in teenage ness and no longer care about my toddler age preferences Of course the truth was complicated I never stopped loving my parents needless to say but in a way my three year old self was right by the time I was a teenager I DID act snotty and unpleasant to them a lot of the time and I no longer wished luckily to regress into the trusting dependence of toddler hood I had become a stranger and no longer wanted to go back the only way was forwardDe Beauvoir s delineation of this process is fascinating and she returns to it several times throughout this volume the dread that precedes a change and the ontological break that enables us to be in a completely different emotional space after the change so that our former dread is no longer relevant Raised devoutly Catholic for example she realizes sometime in her early teens that she no longer believes in God At some point before this realization she thinks to herself that to lose one s faith would be the most horrible thing she can imagine happening to a person yet when she herself realizes that it has happened to her it makes no immediate change in her life she feels little distress She had thought that her morality and assumptions about the universe would immediately and drastically be torn asunder but in fact she retains the tenants of her bourgeois Christian upbringing long after she has stopped believing in God and only very gradually years decades later comes to reexamine the aspects of that upbringing that no longer make sense to her By the time she is uestioning these assumptions other things literature philosophy human relationships have taken the spiritually fulfilling place that religion once held in her lifeLa litt rature prit dans mon existence la place u y avait occup e la religion elle l envahit tout enti re et la transfigura Les livres ue j aimais devinrent une Bible o je puisais des conseils et des secours j en copiai de longs extraits j appris par coeur de nouveaux cantiues et de nouvelles litanies des psaumes des proverbes des proph ties et je sanctifiai toutes les cironstances de ma vie en me recitant ces textes sacr s entre moi et les mes soeurs ui existaient uelue part hors d atteinte ils cr aient une sorte de communion au lieu de vivre ma petite histoire particuli re je participais une grande pop e spirituelle Literature took in my life the place that had formerly been occupied by religion it overran everything and transfigured it The books I loved became a Bible from which I took advice and comfort I copied long extracts from them I learned by heart new hymns and new litanies psalms proverbs prophecies and I sanctified all the circumstances of my life by reciting these sacred texts Between me and these sister souls there existed something out of reach they created a sort of communion instead of living my trivial individual story I was participating in a grand spiritual saga Although I want to discuss so much young Simone s feeling of tragedy at the unconsciousness of inanimate objects her attribution of her own negative capability to the difference in her parents belief systems her relationships with her sister and her best friend her first meetings with Sartre I m already running long I can t close this post however without mentioning the insight that Memoires d une jeune fille rang e gives into de Beauvoir s feminism Her father looms large in this history as both the object of her childhood and adolescent idolatry and as a conservative blow hard who says things like a wife is what her husband makes her it s up to him to shape her personality and bitterly regrets the fact that his loss of money means that his daughters will be earning their own livings rather than marrying well into good society never mind that they PREFER to earn their own livings that s not the point Her father s betrayal of her he tells her she will have to educate herself and earn her living then hates her for being a reminder of his own financial failure was a formative event in de Beauvoir s life and a source of real bitterness for her I was impressed however at how impartial she manages to be toward her father himself while coming to reject the set of values he held As with all other aspects of the book her observations on gender relations are detailed and perceptive and the roots of her feminism run through this volume from her examination of the sexual double standard that allowed her parents to entertain men who kept mistresses but not the mistresses themselves to the assertion of her otherwise avant garde philospher friends that they can t respect an unmarried woman to the effects of having her reading censored it was considered dangerous for unmarried women to read about sex I can t resist including this passage in which a ten year old Simone is reacting to her priest s story about a young female parishioner who reads bad books loses her faith in God and subseuently commits suicideCe ue je comprenais le moins c est ue la connaissance conduis t au d sespoir Le pr dicateur n avait pas dit ue les mauvais livres peignaient la vie sous des couleurs fausses en ce cas il e t facilement balay leurs mensonges le drame de l enfant u il avait chou sauver c est u elle avait d couvert pr matur ment l authentiue visage de la r alit De toute fa on me disais je un jour je la verrai moi aussi face face et je n en mourrai pas What I understood least was the idea that knowledge led to despair The priest hadn t said that the bad books painted life in false colors in that case it would have been easy to brush aside their lies the tragedy of the girl he had failed to save was that she had prematurely discovered the true face of reality In any case I said to myself one day I ll see it too face to face and I won t die This passage makes me feel like cheering And de Beauvoir does not neglect to notice that men and boys were not considered so delicate as to kill themselves over premature exposure to a tawdry potboiler Still M moires d une jeune fille rang e puts de Beauvoir s feminism in perspective she may be most famous for The Second Sex but she s primarily a humanist interested in the modes of existence experienced by all humans and by specific humans regardless of genderI ll be honest this is not the memoir for everyone If you re not interested in philosophy and like a lot to happen in your books it will probably seem hopelessly dry De Beauvoir s adolescence involves all the arrogance and angst one might expect from a recently secularized teen who went on to become a preeminent existentialist hint a lot But even when she is recalling her most turbulent periods the adult de Beauvoir maintains her incisive perceptive ever so faintly amused voice She doesn t take herself too seriously but neither does she dismiss her experiences or manifest a false modesty This balanced tone combined with her stunning intelligence and existentialist insights makes this volume easily one of my favorite reads of the year if not of all time

My introduction to the writing of Simone de Beauvoir is the first of several memoirs she wrote Published in 1958 Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter takes place during the Great War and the postwar years with de Beauvoir an intellectually ravenous morally prudish and eternally uestioning teenage daughter of a bourgeois family in Paris Lit with tremendous desire but as a child of privilege very little drama I related to her life immediately My childhood in suburban Houston of the 1980s was filled with great anticipation but very little in the way of anything actually happening The author relates all of this in writing that is absolutely jeweled One day in the place Saint Sulpice walking along hand in hand with my Aunt Marguerite who hadn t the remotest idea how to talk to me I suddenly wondered How does she see me and felt a sharp sense of superiority for I knew what I was like inside she didn t Deceived by outward appearances she never suspected that inside my immature body nothing was lacking and I made up my mind that when I was older I would never forget that a five year old is a complete individual a character in his own right But that was precisely what adults refused to admit and whenever they treated me with condescension I at once took offence One evening however I was chilled to the marrow by the idea of personal extinction I was reading about a mermaid who was dying by the sad sea waves for the love of a handsome prince she had renounced her immortal soul and was being changed into sea foam That inner voice which had always told her Here I am had been silenced for ever and it seemed to me that the entire universe had foundered in the ensuing stillness But no it couldn t be God had given me the promise of eternity I could not ever cease to see to hear to talk to myself Always I should be able to say Here I am There could be no end In the afternoons I would sit out on the balcony outside the dining room there level with the tops of the trees that shaded the boulevard Raspail I would watch the passers by I knew too little of the habits of adults to be able to guess where they were going in such a hurry or what the hopes and fears were that drove them along But their faces their appearance and the sound of their voices captivated me I find it hard now to explain what the particular pleasure was that they gave me but when my parents decided to move to the fifth floor flat in the rue de Rennes I remember the despairing cry I gave But I won t be able to see the people in the street any Papa used to say with pride Simone has a man s brain she thinks like a man she is a man And yet everyone treated me like a girl Jacues and his friends read real books and were abreast of all current problems they lived out in the open I was confined to the nursery But I did not give up all hope I had confidence in my future Women by the exercise of talent or knowledge had carved out a place for themselves in the universe of men But I felt impatient of the delays I had to endure Whenever I happened to pass by the Coll ge Stanislas my heart would sink I tried to imagine the mystery that was being celebrated behind those walls in a classroom full of boys and I would feel like an outcast My father the majority of writers and the universal consensus of opinion encouraged young men to sow their wild oats When the time came they would marry a young woman of their own social class but in the meanwhile it was uite in order for them to amuse themselves with girls from the lowest ranks of society women of easy virtue young milliners assistants work girls sewing maids shopgirls This custom made me feel sick It had been driven into me that the lower classes have no morals the misconduct of a laundry woman or a flower girl therefore seemed to me to be so natural that it didn t even shock me I felt a certain sympathy for those poor young women whom novelists endowed with such touching virtues Yet their love was always doomed from the state one day or other their lover would throw them over for a well bred young lady I was a democrat and a romantic I found it revolting that just because he was a man and had money he should be authorized to play around with a girl s heartMuch of Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter is devoted to Simone de Beauvoir s best friend Elizabeth Zaza Mabille a bookworm whose mother grows to fear that Simone s preference for a ideals will corrupt daughter The girls grow closer pull apart and come together again as they move through college The same goes for Simone s cousin Jacues who she alternatively detests loves and decides she d be grossly incompatible with as a wife The book is absent of drama and those hoping for a pageant of sex drugs and rock n roll are encouraged to look elsewhere but de Beauvoir s prism of introspection intellectual curiosity virtue integrity and honesty are an intoxicating readTranslation by James Kirkup
