Memoirs of Hadrian by Marguerite Yourcenar ( Book )
373 editions published between 1951 and 2009 in 34 languages and held by 2,568 libraries worldwide
"Both an exploration of character and a meditation on history, Marguerite Yourcenar's novel Memoirs of Hadrian has received international acclaim since its publication in France in 1951. Written in the form of a testamentary letter from the emperor Hadrian to his successor, the youthful Marcus Aurelius, the work is as extraordinary for its psychological depth as for its accurate reconstruction of the second century of our era. In it, Yourcenar reimagines Hadrian's arduous boyhood, his triumphs and reversals, and finally, as emperor, his reordering of a war-torn world."--BOOK JACKET.

Orientales, toutes les créatures de Marguerite Yourcenar le sont à leur manière, subtilement. L'Hadrien des "Mémoires" se veut le plus grec des empereurs, comme Zénon, dans la quête de son "Oeuvre au Noir", paraît souvent instruit d'autres sagesse que celles de l'Occident. L'auteur elle-même, cheminant à travers "Le Labyrinthe du Monde", poursuit une grande méditation sur le devenir des hommes qui rejoint la pensée bouddhiste...

Archives du Nord by Marguerite Yourcenar ( Book )
90 editions published between 1977 and 2010 in 10 languages and held by 926 libraries worldwide
Marguerite Yourcenar, one of France's most celebrated authors, here continues the absorbing tale of her background and origins. The first volume of her autobiographical trilogy, Dear Departed, was devoted to her maternal forebears. The current book, originally published in 1977 under the title Archives du Nord and now making its first appearance in English, introduces us to her father's side of the family. Yourcenar takes us back in time, to relive the tumultuous history of northeastern France through the eyes of a remarkable gallery of ancestors: canonesses and matriarchs, statesmen and scoundrels, merchants and artists (the painter Peter Paul Rubens married into the family). But the central character in the narrative is the individual who had the greatest formative influence on Yourcenar: her father, Michel de Crayencour, who educated her, encouraged her literary ambitions, and fostered in her the intellectual breadth, originality, and subtlety that are so characteristic of her work.

Dreams and destinies by Marguerite Yourcenar ( Book )
9 editions published between 1938 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 417 libraries worldwide
"Dreams and Destinies, the Rosetta stone of Marguerite Yourcenar's canon, is an intimate journal of her dreams. In this book, Yourcenar writes in a daring yet unconventional autobiographical form that allows the reader to view her life as it is refracted through the poetic sensibility of her own sleeping mind. Men, women, children, animals, and mythical creatures populate her dreams as Yourcenar wanders through a picture gallery of the soul, pausing before ruined cathedrals filled with candles, dark ravines that hold dead bodies, and still reflecting pools located deep inside soaring gothic churches. Revised to include changes that she requested before her death, and now available for the first time in English, Dreams and Destinies is a reminder from one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century that the dreams we create are with us forever."--Jacket.
