(...) I walked a lot, I love this country and the cicadas: they say they die from singing all day long, it's a song of love that kills them.

Simone de Beauvoir is one of the most important writers in French literature, read and studied in universities all over the world. Her best-known book, The Second Sex, is considered the bible of contemporary feminism. Despite being raised in a very religious way by her family, she became an atheist and developed, since adolescence, avant-garde and controversial theories (marriage, abortion, euthanasia, etc.) . She was also famous for her intellectual and loving relationship with another immense French philosopher, Jean-Paul Sartre.

Marie-Jo Bonnet, historian of women and recipient of this letter, said of her: "When I met Simone de Beauvoir in 1971 in the MLF (Women's Liberation Movement), she made our generation dream. She was the very example of the free woman who refused to marry and have children, living an egalitarian relationship with Sartre."

A simple but poetic short letter from a monument of world literature.
