Description

In 1983 de Beauvoir published Sartre's letters, maintaining that her own to him had been lost. They were found by de Beauvoir's adopted daughter, and published to a storm of controversy in France. Tracing the emotional and triangular complications of her life with Sartre, the letters reveal her not only as manipulative and dependent but Simonealso as vulnerable, passionate, jealous and committed.

About Author

Simone de Beauvoir was born in 1908. She taught philosophy at the Sorbonne between 1931 and 1943, and afterwards became a full-time writer. Among her most important books are The Second Sex (1949), the novels She Came to Stay and The Mandarins and her great autobiographical writing from Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter to Old Age. All of these books have been translated into many languages, and The Second Sex is often seen as the founding text of modern feminism. De Beauvoir died in 1986.
