The sands of valor by Geoffrey Atheling Wagner( Book )

15 editions published between 1967 and 1986 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Geoffrey Wagner has written something a bit more substantial here than the standard war novel. "The Sands of Valor" spends as much if not more time and effort on the characters and their inner lives than he does on his excellent descriptions of tank warfare in the North African desert, pitting the British 8th Army and the German Afrika Korps against each other and both against the desert. This is not a quick read nor is it packed from end to end with action and scenes of combat, which actually helps the work deliver a rather realistic presentation of the long periods of time with no combat punctuated by moments of intense action and even sheer terror that was especially linked to this period of the war."--Amazon

Selected writings by Gérard de Nerval( Book )

11 editions published between 1958 and 1970 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gerard de Nerval (1808-1855), a contemporary of Poe, De Quincey, Gogol and Heine, introduced into French literature a mode of writing rooted in German romanticism yet already recognizably modernist in its explorations of the uncertain borderlines between dream and reality, irony and madness, autobiography and fiction." "This selection of writings - the first such comprehensive gathering to appear in English - provides an overview of Nerval's work as a poet, belletrist, short-story writer and autobiographer. In addition to 'Aurelia', the memoir of his madness, 'Sylvie' (considered a 'masterpiece' by Proust), and the hermetic sonnets of 'The Chimeras', this volume includes Nerval's Doppelganger tales and experimental fictions. Selections from his correspondence demonstrate a lucid awareness of the strategies by which nineteenth-century psychiatry consigned his visionary imagination to the purgatory of mental illness."--Jacket

Les fleurs du mal : the complete text of The flowers of evil by Charles Baudelaire( Book )

5 editions published between 1922 and 1947 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The poetic masterpiece of the great nineteenth-century writer Charles Baudelaire, The Flowers of Evil is one of the most frequently read and studied works in the French language. In this compelling new translation of Baudelaire's most famous collection, Keith Waldrop recasts the poet's original French alexandrines and other poetic arrangements into versets, a form that hovers between poetry and prose. Maintaining Baudelaire's complex view of sound and structure, Waldrop's translation mirrors the intricacy of the original without attempting to replicate its inimitable verse. The result is a powerful new re-imagining, one that is, almost paradoxically, closer to Baudelaire's own poetry than any previous English translation. Including the six poems banned from the first edition, this Flowers of Evil preserves the complexity, eloquence, and dark humor of its author. Brought here to new life, it is hypnotic, frank, and forceful."--Publisher's website
