Selected writings by Gérard de Nerval( Book )

10 editions published between 1968 and 1970 in English and held by 188 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

Following the example of an acquaintance, she begins a double life as the girl called Belle de Jour, in the brothel run by Madame Anais. Her otherwise placid domestic life is threatened when an obsessed client, unable to possess her completely, begins to stalk her
