Memoirs of egotism (Souvenirs d'égotisme) by Stendhal( Book )

2 editions published in 1949 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stendhal's self-confessed 'ramblings on his private life' offer a rare glimpse into the mind and life of a thoroughly modern writer. As he looks back on the years 1821 to 1830, Stendhal recounts a series of apparently random impressions of the political, social and artistic worlds around him. Yet far from a simple historical record, Stendhal's jottings expertly capture the very essence of human experience." "From his delightful thumbnail sketches of friends and colleagues, to his lyrical remembrances of gardens and operas, and his tenderly amused descriptions of tea with prostitutes in London, Stendhal posits the mundane alongside the extraordinary to most remarkable effect. Sharply scrutinising both people and places, societies and cultures, Stendhal proves that anything - and everything - is of potential interest to the writer with an inquisitive mind."--BOOK JACKET

The poet assassinated by Guillaume Apollinaire( Book )

6 editions published between 1923 and 2000 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The poet Apollinaire was modernism's first champion, and after his early death in 1918, he became its first saint." "In 1916, while recovering from a head wound received in World War I, he published The Poet Assassinated, his most famous work of prose; a roman a clef mythologizing himself as well as friends and enemies including Pablo Picasso, Marie Laurencin, Jean Cocteau, Max Jacob, and others from the legendary "banquet years" of prewar Paris." "Apollinaire concocts a Rabelaisian parallel universe, and slyly tells his own life story, from illegitimate birth to literary fame, in the process. The novella recounts the life and death of Croniamantal, whose birth is "saluted" by the Eiffel Tower's "beautiful erection," who rises through the Parisian literary world to proclaim himself "the greatest of living poets," and who is promptly torn to pieces by a mob."--BOOK JACKET
