The worst was the pain I call the breastplate—a continuous, hideous spasm in my ribs, hoops of steel crushing my lower back. It had you in its grip for months. After one cruel night I wrote: Intimations of agony floated to and fro.
I took a spoonful of bromide, salty, bitter. Sometimes I wonder if Flaubert struggled to find the right words because of the enormous quantity of bromide he ingested. A brief peace, broken by my need for bromide with its side effects of depression and memory loss, and the chloral, which leaves me tired and on edge. Before I returned to morphine, from which I wake in the night in a vacuum with no sense of time and place, with no sense of myself as a person, with no ideas.
Morphine—the only true analgesic. The unpredictable rages it provokes, the interference with my writing and dreams. It makes me unkind to Julia and the children. Side effects—no drug of relief is without them. He writes about this in Contre Sainte-Beuve , a collection of notes published in , like La Doulou more than 30 years posthumously. Young Proust, ah yes.

He believed the hidden self, the inner biography, the experiences processed and stored in the memory—the song within an author—was of greater importance. Sainte-Beuve suffered much hidden pain in retirement. Like you, he was unable to sit and had to write lying or standing. His doctors were unable to diagnose the problem. People would ask after his back, but as far as we knew his back was sound.
After his post-mortem, it was rumoured the pain had been caused by the stone.
He later learned your pain had intensified. When you returned, your brow was perspiring as if in the wake of a struggle, but your breathing was easy, calmed by victory. Proust was in awe of your courage. His own suffering, he says, was of no consequence by comparison. Supposition and long-windedness bother me. One needs to pass through theory and into the picture. At this point, as if prompted, Daudet excused himself and, with the aid of his cane, left the room.
A door opened and shut, further down the hall. I took the opportunity to look over the table where he wrote very slowly and revised, revised, revised.
Stephanie de Montalk — The ‘Vendor of Happiness’ — Alphonse Daudet ( –) | NZETC
I could never dictate a novel. And the workspace was piled with papers and books, of which I listed the yellowed sulphur stained? There were also Rousseau, whom he defended against those who railed against sexual transgression; Napoleon on campaign; undertakings in Africa; a mission to Madagascar; an expedition to the North Pole. I positioned the pillow. What would Daudet observe about me: He took the shell from its box and held it to the lamp.
Turned it this way page 40 and that. Propped it against his pipe. Watched it gleam blue, silver and green. Can we revisit the notes you made about the sufferers you met at the mineral pools? Violent men become timorous. Was La Doulou intended as a work of poetry or fiction? I envisaged an honest confession— dictante dolore , with pain dictating—of moving through pain and disability towards death. I wanted to leave no suggestion of complaint against those I loved.
Goncourt and I discussed a work of fact incorporated within fiction. The text frequently calls for poetic form:. I struggle to sleep without chloral. Behind my closed eyes the earth splits. Chasms open right and left. Short naps turn into nightmares of vertiginous skidding, sliding, crashing into the abyss. When the garden awakes. I wrote only poetry in the beginning—until I gave in to prose, working for newspapers in order to make a living.
Julia thought it might be interpreted as a curtain fall on my writing life. She influences all my compositions. Daudet stopped and blew his nose. Was Julia also concerned that writing about pain, in addition to living it, would bring you down? Or that making your ailment public would harm your reputation? More formally, I have a disease of the bone marrow, or a degeneration of the nervous system—which is, of course, accurate.
Could your contemplation of suicide have been a factor? Julia begged you to think of the children. Ebner quotes you saying just this. He recalls an occasion on which Julia entered your study as you were sharing your pain with a friend. Upon seeing the doorknob turn, you quickly stood, smiled and replied strongly, in response to her question, that all was well. Pain soon becomes mundane to onlookers, even those closest to us.
I attempt to keep my ordeal to myself to protect others, and as a matter of pride—in order not to see tedium in their eyes. What of those who suffer alone—who have no family or friends with whom to share their anguish? For me, the easiest way to be in pain is to be alone, like a mole in a burrow, free of explanations, expectations, the limitations I place on my family. I have a photograph of you and Julia, taken five years ago in the garden of your country house at Champrosay. You sit on a slatted seat. Julia stands alongside, holding a folded parasol. You tilt your head, and feign interest with a half-smile.
Your face seems pallid, even in black and white. I felt my life was effectively over. I lived instead through my novels. These challenges have resulted in some ten publications and plays since when tabes declared itself and the pain became almost constant. What have been your motifs during the twelve years of greatest pain? To which work do you feel closest? I write according to my page 44 surroundings. It has been said that something of the natural energy and allure of your writing has been absent since Sappho was published in One only has to imagine the torture of living within a wall that is gradually tightening, adding one constraint to another.
Do the distraction of writing and the impetus of responsibility—of maintaining your place in the family—help to hold back the wall? My responsibilities and anxieties as a father and head of a household are certainly an incentive to keeping me on my feet. As is comparison with the less fortunate—with sufferers for whom financial hardship and a lack of warmth, food, wine and affection are added to their misery.
‘Dictante Dolore’: Writing Pain in Alphonse Daudet’s La Doulou
Are your acts of pity in daily life a manifestation of compassion through pain? Living in pain can isolate people, and cause them to lose touch with the reality of the wider world. Self-pity can then become overwhelming. I remind myself that there are heavier burdens than mine. In this way, I have pity left to expend on others.
In Much Ado About Nothing when Antonio speaks of self-pity as shameful, Leonato rejoins there has never been a philosopher who patiently endured toothache! If one has never been cold or hungry, or otherwise suffered, one cannot imagine, or speak about any of those things. Something else to consider is that for the person in pain, the torment is always new. But to family and friends—even those who by nature are most compassionate—the witness of suffering can become a stale habit. I say to the sick: I, however, recommend exercising the imagination—if one is so gifted. In this way, inconsequential hardships fade into the background, and everything else falls into its natural place.
He sees your will to work and contribute to family life as standing amidst your literary achievements. Does pain leads to moral and intellectual growth? It steals your energy and sours your life, and you must decide whether to take the path of bitterness or pity. What are your thoughts?
Just that there is nothing customary about pain. La Doulou seems to be as much about your search for language as about voicing the pain experience. He shaded his eyes with his hand. I asked if we had spoken for too long and offered to leave. Daudet shook his head emphatically, stretched his left leg, straightened in his chair.
I continued cautiously, aware that he counselled and instructed regardless of discomfort. Yes, like many writers, I have a dual disposition. And a responsive Me who weeps, struggles and suffers. Even as a child I was aware I had two sides. Your stark accounts alongside moments of deep understanding illustrate a duality of watching and feeling. Hope on the scaffold of loss. I met with the distressed and shared their martyrdom.
I found our conversations consoling—while soothing others I soothed myself.
Physical pain, unlike most illnesses, is slippery. Its expression can only be guided by style—style as a state of intensity. Some people possess the innate gifts of taste and tact that constitute style, and instinctively choose the right words. But minds of that sort are rare. La Doulou —a decade of pain on small pages. Sounds from the shower— tiled walls echoing voices, water; the precise click of foils from the practice room; the deep sadness these absences cause me— the physical life I have lost.
Flashes of light and colour. The juxtaposition of colours and sounds. All these are important. Remember, too, Pascal, who wrote: Daudet paused, interrupted by a tap at the door. I turned, hoping to see Julia, but no one entered. We should talk on. I come to life in the presence of strangers. I can even appear to be in perfect health. I want to know more about your country with its limitations on convalescence, and about the future with its cure of syphilis and restrictions on opium. I wonder which of my works are still read. Tell me about the book beneath your notepad.
The patrons include a vampire and a talking parrot—and Time Travellers who must pay cash for their drinks! Rubbed his thighs as if distracting his pain. Clasped his thin hands. Stared at the paua shell.
Looked towards the door. A month after this interview, on 16 December , Daudet, aged fifty-seven, died during an evening meal with his family. He was chatting and sipping soup when his head fell back and his breathing became laboured. He was laid on the carpet. The cause of death was reported as apoplexy. They whip the spirit up, they beautify things. We see the same fact and the same event appreciated in all kinds of ways in accordance with the character and the habits of different men.
I have paraphrased a number of his sourced responses for narrative purposes as my own free translations and presented them selectively, at times as composite passages, without referencing.
