character in Valéry

Fishburn and Hughes: A fictional character, the protagonist of Valéry's early prose work La Soirée avec Monsieur Teste (1896). Edmond Teste is considered to be Valéry's alter ego: the opinions expressed by him during the course of his nocturnal conversations embody the literary ideas and intellectual pursuits of his author - concern with metre, syntax and punctuation, linguistic preciosity and a catholic interest in subjects as diverse as lithography, chess and philosophy. Pierre Menard, who reflects many of Borges's interests and preoccupations, may be seen as a parody of Edmond Teste. Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote; A Survey of the Works of Herbert Quain
