Quand je vis l'Inde, et quand je vis la Chine, pour la première fois, des peuples, sur cette terre, me parurent mériter d'être réels. Joyeux, je fonçai dans ce réel, persuadé que j'en rapportais beaucoup. Y croyais-je complètement? Voyage réel entre deux imaginaires. Peut-être au fond de moi les observais-je comme des voyages imaginaires qui se seraient réalisés sans moi, œuvre d'autres. Pays qu'un autre aurait inventés. J'en avais la surprise, l'émotion, l'agacement. C'est qu'il manque beaucoup à ce voyage pour être réel. Je le sus plus tard. Faisais-je exprès de laisser de côté ce qui précisément allait faire en plusieurs de ces pays de la réalité nouvelle : la politique? (...) Ce livre qui ne me convient plus, qui me gêne et me heurte, me fait honte, ne me permet de corriger que des bagatelles le plus souvent. Il a sa résistance. Comme s'il était un personnage. Il a un ton. A cause de ce ton, tout ce que je voudrais en contrepoids y introduire de plus grave, de plus réfléchi, de plus approfondi, de plus expérimenté, de plus instruit, me revient, m'est renvoyé ... comme ne lui convenant pas. Ici, barbare on fut, barbare on doit rester. -- Back cover

The letters of Sylvia Beach by Sylvia Beach( Book )
8 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
Founder of the Left Bank bookstore Shakespeare and Company and the first publisher of James Joyce's Ulysses, Sylvia Beach had a legendary facility for nurturing literary talent. In this first collection of her letters, we witness Beach's day-to-day dealings as bookseller and publisher to expatriate Paris. Friends and clients include Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, H. D., Ezra Pound, Janet Flanner, William Carlos Williams, F. Scott Fitzgerald, James Joyce, and Richard Wright. As librarian, publicist, publisher, and translator, Beach carved out a unique space for herself in English and French letters. This collection reveals Beach's charm and resourcefulness, sharing her negotiations with Marianne Moore to place Joyce's work in The Dial; her battle to curb the piracy of Ulysses in the United States; her struggle to keep Shakespeare and Company afloat during the Depression; and her complicated affair with the French bookstore owner Adrienne Monnier. These letters also recount Beach's childhood in New Jersey; her work in Serbia with the American Red Cross; her internment in a German prison camp; and her friendship with a new generation of expatriates in the 1950s and 1960s. Beach was the consummate American in Paris and a tireless champion of the avant-garde. Her warmth and wit made the Rue de l'Odéon the heart of modernist Paris
