Topic: Vauvenargues


In the News (Sun 16 Jun 19)

  
  Luc de Clapiers, marquis de Vauvenargues - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Vauvenargues discusses in his writings his hate of women and his love of young men, which he defends as having nothing against nature, and blames "malicious spirits" for criminalizing his tastes in love.
These efforts were unsuccessful, but Vauvenargues was on the point of securing his appointment through the intervention of Voltaire when an attack of smallpox completed the ruin of his health and rendered diplomatic employment out of the question.
Vauvenargues moved to Paris in 1745, and lived there in the closest retirement, seeing but few friends, of whom Jean-François Marmontel and Voltaire were the chief.

 [No title]
Vauvenargues was beset throughout the whole of his short life with the sordid and humiliating embarrassments of narrow means.
Vauvenargues was sufficiently free from all taint of the pedagogue or the preacher to have dispelled the sophisms of licence, less by argument than by the gracious attraction of virtue in his own character.
Vauvenargues founded his whole theory of life on the doctrine that the will is not something independent of passions, inclinations, and ideas, but on the contrary is a mere index moved and fixed by them, as the hand of a clock follows the operation of the mechanical forces within.

A great many years afterwards Voltaire was surprised in the same way, to find that an officer could write such a book as the _Félicité Publique_ of the Marquis de Chastellux.

I am sometimes asked why the Marquis of Vauvenargues crops up so rarely in this column nowadays.
Have you (my interlocutors gently inquire) gone off the old boy?
