Description:
In 1941, the Jewish American writer and avant-garde icon Gertrude Stein embarked on one of the strangest intellectual projects of her life: translating for an American audience the speeches of Marshal Philippe P tain, head of state for the collaborationist Vichy government. From 1941 to 1943, Stein translated thirty-two of P tain's speeches, in which he outlined the Vichy policy barring Jews and other 'foreign elements' from the public sphere while calling for France to reconcile with Nazi occupiers. Unlikely Collaboration pursues troubling questions: Why and under what circumstances would Stein undertake this project? The answers lie in Stein's link to the man at the core of this controversy: Bernard Fa , Stein's apparent Vichy protector. Fa was director of the Biblioth que Nationale during the Vichy regime and overseer of the repression of French freemasons. He convinced P tain to keep Stein undisturbed during the war and, in turn, encouraged her to translate P tain for American audiences. Yet Fa 's protection was not coercive. Stein described the thinker as her chief intellectual companion during her final years.
Barbara Will outlines the formative powers of this relationship, noting possible affinities between Stein and Fa 's political and aesthetic ideals, especially their reflection in Stein's writing from the late 1920s to the 1940s. Will treats their interaction as a case study of intellect Please click here to ask a question
