Most widely held works by Antoine Adam
Les fleurs du mal : the complete text of The flowers of evil by Charles Baudelaire( Book )

101 editions published between 1959 and 1998 in French and English and held by 939 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

"In 1711 Usbek leaves his seraglio in Isfahan to undertake the long journey to France, accompanied by his young friend Rica. He leaves behind five wives (Zachi, Zéphis, Fatmé, Zélis, and Roxane) in the care of a number of black eunuchs, one of whom is the head or first eunuch. During the trip and their long stay in Paris (1712-1720), they comment, in letters exchanged with friends and mullahs, on numerous aspects of Western, Christian society, particularly French politics and mores, ending with a biting satire of the System of John Law. Over time, various disorders surface back in the seraglio, and beginning with letter 139, the situation there rapidly unravels."

Un an après la publication remarquée du Voyage autour du monde de Bougainville, Diderot imagine ce "supplément", réflexion malicieuse, voire audacieuse, sur les institutions et les mœurs françaises.

La lecture de cet ouvrage, court et souvent amusant, amènera t'élève à se familiariser avec les thèmes et les pensées du siècle des Lumières et avec tes différentes formes de L'argumentation. En outre, son appareil pédagogique est enrichi d'un travail sur Les réécritures
