"Balzac's Contes Drolatiques, or Droll Stories, were originally published in three volumes in the 1830s. Set in medieval Europe, these stories were Balzac's attempt to write in the great tradition of Rabelais and Boccaccio, to render the Middle Ages with a touch of raunchy humor, and to provide a delightful portrait of medieval France. Balzac took the old themes that had delighted his ancestors--the tales of faithless wives and confiding husbands, of monks incredibly endowed for amorous athleticism, of lusty wenches and adventurous lads, and of great bouts of eating and drinking." --

First presented at Dublin's Abbey Theatre in 1916, "The Whiteheaded Boy" is set in a typical Irish small-town household which is thrown into a frenzy, as the play begins, with the return of son Denis from Dublin's Trinity College. He is the whiteheaded boy of the title--the apple of his mother's eye and as a result the focus of his siblings' resentment--who has just failed his exams. Rather than face the shame of this failure, the family plan to ship him off to Canada; he just wants to marry his sweetheart, get a job, and settle down in the country. Hijinks, marriage proposals, bribes, and counter-bribes ensue as the family members exploit and misinterpret Denis' situation
Les diaboliques; les six premières by J Barbey d'Aurevilly( Book )

13 editions published between 1925 and 2011 in English and French and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1874 Les Diaboliques caused an uproar and all the copies were seized on the orders of the Ministry of Justice as the book was a danger to public morality. Scandal made the book an immediate success. One hundred and thirty years later it is now firmly established as a classic and studied in French schools. "The book is a celebration of the seven deadly vices and shows no counterbalancing interest in the seven cardinal virtues. Even more, it is a celebration of pride, the pride of the ancient aristocracy of evil. Those who have the style to carry off their vices have also the right to do so." D'Aurevilly introduces us to the she-devils, a group of femme fatales who share their trials and triumphs
