Hes first collections, followed by literary essays, were published by Kra under the pseudonym Gilbert Mauge. Paul Valéry's influence is obvious in a work haunted by death and the passing of time, especially in collections such as: La Vie humaine (1928).
For years, she was the chair of the jury for the Femina Prize.
Together with her brother André she owned the publishing company Revue de Paris, a literary magazine.
At the request of Pierre de Boisdeffre, she published literary studies that took advantage of her acquaintance among writers of her time: En lisant les cahiers de Paul Valéry (3 vol., 1964), an essay on Léon-Paul Fargue, a biography of Anna de Noailles.
She is also interested in moral philosophy with texts such as: Le Voyage dans l'esprit (1931), Les Moralistes de l'intelligence (1945), Pluralités de l'être (1957), Spectateurs (1972), De l'ennui (1976), L'Acquiescement (1978).
