Mi rivedo in Simone moltissimo. La dura fatica dall'uscire da un'educazione cattolica, la perdita di un Dio, la scoperta della conoscenza, il combattimento contro i genitori e infine il "divenire".
Perché ancora oggi alcune cose sono tabù, meno degli anni '20, ma sempre in agguato. Come il rinchiudere in una bolla di distruzione e malessere la poverà Zàzà.
Anche se oggi le donne hanno un ruolo potente e a volte fondamentale per la società e penso che Simone ne sarebbe orgogliosa e felice.
An intriguing and fascinating look into the first years of and intellectual and a woman of genius. By reading this book you
will be taken on a tour of young Simone's wishes, hopes, illusions, disappontments, strength and weaknesses. You will also get a living potrait of French society in the first part of the XX century. Are you curious about who were the friends
of this great artist and philosopher, how she formed her character, what shaped her life and destiny? You will find it all here. Beware that Simone's mind had a strong tendency for
abstraction so you won't find here lots of juicy details, or a sequence of emotional adventures like in Rousseau's Confessions.
Principles, abstract thinking and reflexion had a great weight
in Simone's life and this book is principally the biography of her mind. The force of Simone's drive to be someone, to find something important and meaningful to do, her stubborn desire to find a sense for her existence, her need to "tell to everyone what she felt she had to say" glows throughout the book and is probably its principal beauty.
