Sample text

No manly, phallic sausage for Roquentin, the Autodidact insists, only invertebrate snails or oysters. No manly, red meat of a bœuf en daube for him, but rather the less manly poulet chasseur, while the Autodidact permits himself to order the beef. And there is not even robust red wine, but rather the less manly rosé d’Anjou. The most interesting moment in the scene is the missing conversation that happens right after the food is ordered. The purpose of the lunch was ostensibly for the Autodidact to tell Roquentin about the trouble the Corsican guard in the library is making for him.

All we can know is that it is an act of seduction and transfixing. He does not seduce through the contents but through the form. The seduction is complicated by the counter-current introduced by Sartre. The hand of the one supposedly rapt by the Autodidact’s words slides along surreptitiously to pinch the arm of his friend, yet, mine de rien, he continues to appear interested in the words of Autodidact. The blond friend, who is older and already has “une ombre de moustache [a hint of a moustache]” and is broad-shouldered, “râblé [strapping)]” (193; 232), is, however, truly caught up in the words of the Autodidact: he is “trop absorbé à jouir silencieusement des paroles de l’Autodidacte [too absorbed in silent enjoyment of the Autodidact’s words]” (194; 233).

Through an analysis of a series of scenes in which the Autodidact figures prominently, I shall show how Sartre conceives of homosexuality, bad faith, and engagement even at this early point in his writing. *** Cette quantité de désœuvrés vulgaires, de bourgeois retirés, d’hommes veufs, de solliciteurs sans places, d’écoliers qui viennent copier leur version, de vieillards maniaques, – comme l’était ce pauvre Carnaval qui venait tous les jours avec un habit rouge, bleu clair, ou vert-pomme, et un chapeau orné de fleurs, – mérite sans doute considération, mais n’existe-t-il pas d’autres bibliothèques, et même des bibliothèques spéciales à leur ouvrir ?
