"It was with Alexis that, in 1929, Marguerite Yourcenar began her career as a novelist. Few literary debuts in this centry are quite as astonishing; for this profound analysis of a man's homosexuality was written by a young woman of twenty-four. The novel takes the form of a letter from the protagonist, Alexis, to his wife, Monique. His letter declares that he can no longer continue in the marriage, that he must obey the demands of his own sexuality, against which he has struggled in vain, to achieve a freedom without which he cannot live"--Back cover

Mémoires d'Hadrien : suivi de Carnets de notes de Mémoires d'Hadrien by Marguerite Yourcenar( Book )

52 editions published between 1971 and 2014 in French and English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cette œuvre, qui est à la fois roman, histoire, poésie, a été saluée par la critique française et mondiale comme un événement littéraire. En imaginant les Mémoires d'un grand empereur romain, l'auteur a voulu «refaire du dedans ce que les archéologues du XIXe siècle ont fait du dehors». Jugeant sans complaisance sa vie d'homme et son œuvre politique, Hadrien n'ignore pas que Rome, malgré sa grandeur, finira un jour par périr, mais son réalisme romain et son humanisme hérité des Grecs lui font sentir l'importance de penser et de servir jusqu'au bout. «... Je me sentais responsable de la beauté du monde», dit ce héros dont les problèmes sont ceux de l'homme de tous les temps : les dangers mortels qui du dedans et du dehors confrontent les civilisations, la quête d'un accord harmonieux entre le bonheur et la «discipline auguste», entre l'intelligence et la volonté
