Simone de Beauvoir A BiographyThis definitive biography is based on five years of interviews with de Beauvoir and is written with her full cooperation Bair penetrates the mystiu An expansive read but well worth the time To touch on the author Bair’s actual construction it read in journalistic style but was sectioned into chapters that left you with whole ideas and themes within Beauvoir’s life I appreciated that as some biographies I've read often resigned to bait and switch and though that approach may propel you throughout fiction in biography you lose some of the sense of growth change and large periods of time building upon each other to create a complete portrait of the subject As for Beauvoir herself this book is very keen to emphasize that Beauvoir was very much philosophically dependent on Sartre for most of her life However I interpreted Beauvoir’s firm role as reminding Sartre of the ideas of Being and Nothingness as her own philosophy the fact that she did not constantly move with his own philosophical fluctuation shows that she has convictions of her own and that in many ways the ideas of Being and Nothingness were created at the pinnacle of his respect for her when they were constantly in dialogue and therefore she exists as a thinker within that existential system to a very great extent The book or their life together really raises another good point for dialogue also in that she was fine doing Sartre’s social dirty work as well as giving him all the credit for the existential basis of The Second Sex Though the author seems convinced that Simone was a man “eluded the usual duties of her sex” in that she did not “suffer fools and was never to be bound by the traditional constraints of marriage family or housework” Simone did suffer Sartre’s foolery often compromised her relationship with Algren to remain available constantly to Sartre constraints if not traditional replicated child relationships in Slyvie and Sartre in Arlette and truly was constantly doing his housework running Les Temps Modernes in its entirety because he simply grew bored Though I was surprised to see this I feel it is in direct contrast to the author’s assumption that she never succumbed to womanhood as she constantly makes it seem Simone adopted if not as recognizable the predictable female role So unfortunately my initial uestion of whether a woman can be in tune with this tendency and also create an identity for herself unafraid to be in conflict with and exist without those for which they care goes unanswered in Simone’s life She only put herself into her singular work outside of Sartre feminism when he was dead “However in reality it should be considered separately from the decade of the 1970s when it was first of all a way of evading Sartre’s drawn out process of dying and only after that a source of personal and professional pleasure” However to read about a woman of such intellectual power self possession and commitment to freedom was refreshing She continues to be a model for both women and myself personally in that she never faltered in confidence regarding her skills and never completely let anything subsume her until there was simply no Simone de Beauvoir left That is a feat and maybe over time I can begin to see she had a clearer sight into realism than I her life attests to the constant and very real balance of both existential wholeness as well as the sacrificial nature of love All in all a well documented account of her life I'll probably write an essay on in it and leave it somewhere on the dregs of the internet because there are so many interesting both political and philosophical uestions raised by suc
