"During the space of a day in Rome in 1933, a ten-lira coin passes through the hands of nine people--including an aging artist, a prostitute, and a would-be assassin of Mussolini. The coin becomes the symbol of contact between human beings, each lost in private passions and nearly impenetrable solitude."--Publisher description

Alexis by Marguerite Yourcenar( Book )

36 editions published between 1929 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 777 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It was with Alexis that, in 1929, Marguerite Yourcenar began her career as a novelist. Few literary debuts in this centry are quite as astonishing; for this profound analysis of a man's homosexuality was written by a young woman of twenty-four. The novel takes the form of a letter from the protagonist, Alexis, to his wife, Monique. His letter declares that he can no longer continue in the marriage, that he must obey the demands of his own sexuality, against which he has struggled in vain, to achieve a freedom without which he cannot live"--Back cover

La Couronne et la Lyre : poèmes traduits du grec by Marguerite Yourcenar( Book )

34 editions published between 1979 and 2001 in French and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cette anthologie de la poésie grecque couvre une période de dix-huit siècles (du VIIe siècle avant Jésus-Christ au Xe siècle de notre ère), mais elle se concentre sur les douze siècles qui séparent le VIIe siècle avant Jésus-Christ du Ve siècle de notre ère. L'auteur a précisé ses intentions en affirmant que "tout choix de poèmes est d'abord esthétique, et doit l'être". Les poètes grecs étant souvent d'admirables métriciens, elle a choisi de suivre le précepte de Lafosse: "les Vers ne doivent être traduits qu'en Vers". Très belle préface analytique, p. 9-40. Notices informatives (en particulier, qui replacent l'auteur dans son temps) et évaluatives souvent très substantielles. Un livre superbe, composé pour le plaisir de l'auteur... et le nôtre

Alexis, ou Le traité du vain combat ; suivi de Le coup de grâce by Marguerite Yourcenar( Book )

36 editions published between 1971 and 2012 in French and Chinese and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dans une longue lettre, Alexis "cherche à sortir d'une situation fausse qui est léchec de son mariage." "Le coup de grâce se situe dans les Pays baltes. ... Le sujet central du roman est avant tout une communauté d'espèce, une solidarité du destin chez deux hommes et une femme soumis aux mêmes privations et aux mêmes dangers."--Cover
Oriental tales by Marguerite Yourcenar( Book )

71 editions published between 1938 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
