The trouble with being born by E. M Cioran( Book )

113 editions published between 1973 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume, which reaffirms the uncompromising brilliance of his mind, Cioran strips the human condition down to its most basic components, birth and death, suggesting that disaster lies not in the prospect of death but in the fact of birth, "that laughable accident." In the lucid, aphoristic style that characterizes his work, Cioran writes of time and death, God and religion, suicide and suffering, and the temptation to silence. Through sharp observation and patient contemplation, Cioran cuts to the heart of the human experience."A love of Cioran creates an urge to press his writing into someone's hand, and is followed by an equal urge to pull it away as poison."--Publisher
The new gods by E. M Cioran( Book )

89 editions published between 1969 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 749 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dubbed "Nietzsche without his hammer" by literary critic James Wood, the Romanian philosopher E.M. Cioran is known as much for his profound pessimism and fatalistic approach as for the lyrical, raging prose with which he communicates them. Unlike many of his other works, such as On the Heights of Despair and Tears and Saints, The New Gods eschews his usual aphoristic approach in favor of more extensive and analytic essays. Returning to many of Cioran's favorite themes, The New Gods explores humanity's attachment to gods, death, fear

Scott Fitzgerald, the poet Paul Valery, and Mircea Eliade, among others.

A short history of decay by E. M Cioran( Book )

18 editions published between 1975 and 2018 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

E.M. Cioran confronts the place of today's world in the context of human history-focusing on such major issues of the twentieth century as human progress, fanaticism, and science-in this nihilistic and witty collection of aphoristic essays concerning the nature of civilization in mid-twentieth-century Europe. Touching upon Man's need to worship, the feebleness of God, the downfall of the Ancient Greeks and the melancholy baseness of all existence, Cioran's pieces are pessimistic in the extreme, but also display a beautiful certainty that renders them delicate, vivid, and memorable
Précis de décomposition by E. M Cioran( Book )

98 editions published between 1949 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Réédition du premier essai de Cioran (1949). Obnubilé par le déclin de l'Occident, considérant les idéologies et les doctrines comme des "farces sanglantes", cet auteur a sans doute droit au titre de premier "Nouveau philosophe". Une pensée lucide, cynique, qu'on comprend mieux en sachant que Cioran est d'origine roumaine. Percutant. Et quel style. Selon S. Jaudeau (en 1990), un livre très balkanique par ses outrances, son style baroque et son lyrisme révolté

All gall is divided : the aphorisms of a legendary iconoclast by E. M Cioran( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

E.M. Cioran lived on the margins of the modern world. Like his friends Beckett and Ionesco, he stood apart from all the official trappings of his chosen medium of philosophy. Not since Nietzsche has a thinker revealed himself so drastically. All Gall Is Divided is a breviary of estrangement that rejoices in the contradictions and confusions of human fate. As his translator Richard Howard remarks, "You fraternize with Emil Cioran at your peril, but it is the kind of danger that keeps you alive."
