Summary
In 1941, Jewish American writer and avant-garde icon Gertrude Stein embarked on one of the strangest intellectual projects of her life: translating for an American audience the speeches of Marshal Philippe P<U+00d4>etain, head of state for the collaborationist Vichy government. From 1941 to 1943, Stein translated thirty-two speeches in which P<U+00d4>etain outlines the Vichy policy barring Jews and other "foreign elements" from the public sphere and calls for France to reconcile with Nazi occupiers. Unlikely Collaboration pursues a troubling question: Why and under what circumstances would Stein undertake this project? A specialist on the author and her radical writing, Barbara Will links Stein to the man at the core of this controversy: Bernard Fa<U+00de>y, Stein's apparent Vichy protector. Fa<U+00de>y was director of the Biblioth<U+00df>eque Nationale during the Vichy regime and overseer of the repression of French freemasons. He convinced P<U+00d4>etain to keep Stein "undisturbed" during the war and, in turn, "encouraged" her to translate P<U+00d4>etain for American audiences. Yet Fa<U+00de>y's protection was not coercive. Stein described the thinker as a chief intellectual companion during her final years. Will outlines the formative powers of this relationship, noting possible affinities between Stein and Fa<U+00de>y's political and aesthetic ideals, especially their reflection in Stein's writing from the late 1920s to the 1940s. Will treats their interaction as a case study of intellectual life during wartime France and an indication of America's place in the Vichy imagination. Her book forces a reconsideration of modernism and fascism, revealing what led so many within the avant-garde toward fascist thought. Touching off a potential powder keg of critical dispute, Will replays a collaboration that proves key to understanding fascism and the remaking of modern Europe
