Oriental tales by Marguerite Yourcenar( Book )

233 editions published between 1938 and 2014 in 22 languages and held by 1,656 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

"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
Memoirs of Hadrian, and reflections on the composition of memoirs of Hadrian by Marguerite Yourcenar( Book )

20 editions published between 1954 and 2005 in English and held by 1,451 WorldCat member 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."--Jacket

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

55 editions published between 1979 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 448 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
