First of all, sorry for posting in English, please feel free to answer in French.

I am trying to find this work by Paul Valery in French. I've read it in English and think it is one of the most beautiful pieces of literature I've ever read. But my search for the French version has been in vain. I guess it must be included in some collection of his works, but which one?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

On peut le trouver ici Jan 25, 2008

Bonjour,

L'île Xiphos fait partie du recueil Histoires brisées publié à titre posthume en 1950.

En principe on peut le commander ici :

avec d'autres textes.

Bonne Journée,

Olivier

Second volume of the La Pléiade. Jan 25, 2008

Hello Agnese,

After searching a little with google, I found a reference to your text in a book:

http://books.google.com/books?id=y6kTZPOD5a0C&pg=PA95&lpg=PA95&dq="L'%C3%8Ele+Xiphos%22&source=web&ots=hnA3aaqYH4&sig=FmKU7WszZdg8GF8SKfvin7gzoFM

Apparently it is in the second volume of his complete works (Vol 2 of La Pléiade), page 449. You can buy it from the amazon link below, or you can find it in any university library.

Hope this helps,

gregory
