Although not autobiographical in any usual sense, the book is profoundly personal. Valery said he could not imagine the existence of the novel, vet he could not resist the character living in his mind. On the one hand. Monsieur Teste reflects Valerys preoccupation with the phenomenon of a mind detached from sensibility- on the other, he is an ordinary fictional character seen from many viewpoints. This volume also includes The Snapshots of Monsieur Teste, excerpts from Valerys Notebooks.
