In Vichy, as a young teacher, he gained attention when he published an interpretation of Rimbaud's Sonnet des voyelles (fr) as an erotic text. Around 1960, he developed political sympathies for the colonialist cause in Algeria (the Algérie française movement), and was arrested in the belief he was a member of the "OAS", a terrorist organisation.
