He represented France on cultural matters at the League of Nations , and he served on several of its committees, including the sub-committee on Arts and Letters of the Committee on Intellectual Cooperation. The English-language collection The Outlook for Intelligence contains translations of a dozen essays related to these activities. He gave the keynote address at the German national celebration of the th anniversary of the death of Johann Wolfgang Goethe.

In , he was appointed chief executive of what later became the University of Nice. However, he published fewer than a hundred poems, and none of them drew much attention.

Eventually, around , he quit writing altogether, publishing not a word for nearly twenty years. The poem is written in the first person, and is the soliloquy of a young woman contemplating life and death, engagement and withdrawal, love and estrangement, in a setting dominated by the sea, the sky, stars, rocky cliffs, and the rising sun. The poem is not about World War I , but it does try to address the relationships between destruction and beauty, and, in this sense, it resonates with ancient Greek meditations on these matters, especially in the plays of Sophocles and Aeschylus.

In and , he published two slim collections of verses. The first, Album des vers anciens Album of old verses , was a revision of early but beautifully wrought smaller poems, some of which had been published individually before The second, Charmes from the Latin carmina, meaning "songs" and also "incantations" , further confirmed his reputation as a major French poet.

Prose works Edit His far more ample prose writings, peppered with many aphorisms and bons mots, reveal a skeptical outlook on human nature, verging on the cynical.

His view of state power was broadly liberal insofar as he believed that state power and infringements on the individual should be severely limited. Early every morning of his adult life, he contributed something to the Cahiers, prompting him to write: "Having dedicated those hours to the life of the mind, I thereby earn the right to be stupid for the rest of the day.

In fact, arcane topics in these domains appear to have commanded far more of his considered attention than his celebrated poetry. The Cahiers also contain the first drafts of many aphorisms he later included in his books. To date, the Cahiers have been published in their entirety only as photostatic reproductions, and only since have they begun to receive scholarly scrutiny.

Your acts of pity and cruelty are absurd, committed with no calm, as if they were irresistible. Finally, you fear blood more and more. Blood and time".
