Most widely held works by Francine Giguère
Five comedies by George Sand( )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: Best known as a novelist, George Sand (1804-1876) was also arguably the most successful woman dramatist in history. More than twenty of her plays were staged in major Paris theaters to widespread popular and critical acclaim. Translated here for the first time into English are her two most famous full-length comedies, The Marquis de Villemer and Francoise, as well as her three major one-act plays, The Paving Stone, The Japanese Lily, and A Good Deed Is Never Wasted. Noted for their lively characterization, sparkling dialogue, and deft constructions, her plays reflect the passion and generosity of her own character, as well as a quick-witted sense of humor. The translations are preceded by an introduction outlining Sand's theatrical career, the main themes and characteristics of her plays, and critical appraisals from her own generation to the present day. The translations are followed by notes and a bibliography
Collected maxims and other reflections by François La Rochefoucauld( )
5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,096 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Deceptively brief and insidiously easy to read, La Rochefoucauld's shrewd, unflattering analyses of human behavior have influenced writers, thinkers, and public figures as various as Voltaire, Proust, de Gaulle, Nietzsche, and Conan Doyle. This is the fullest collection of La Rochefoucauld's writings ever published in English, and includes the first complete translation of the Reflexions diverses (Miscellaneous Reflections). This edition includes an excellent introduction that surveys La Rochefoucauld's life, the genesis of his work, its form and content, and its influence, as well as comprehensive explanatory notes. A table of alternative maxim numbers and an extensive and invaluable index of topics help the reader to locate any maxim quickly and to appreciate the full range of La Rochefoucauld's thought on any of his favorite themes, such as self-love, vice and virtue, love and jealousy, friendship and self-interest, passion and pride. - Publisher

The glagolitic and cyrillic traditions in copying the apocryphal story of joseph in egypt (old church, slavonic) by Francine Giguère( Book )
1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The Croatian glagolitic tradition of Church Slavonic, which evolved in the Western branch of the Church, has received little attention in scholarly circles outside Yugoslavia. The latter have traditionally concentrated on the Eastern Orthodox Slavic domain. However, the use of Church Slavonic as a literary language was not confined to the Serbs, Bulgarians, Macedonians and East Slavs. Thus one cannot claim to give a complete picture of Church Slavonic as a Common Slavic literary language without taking
