The need for roots; prelude to a declaration of duties toward mankind by Simone Weil( Book )

140 editions published between 1949 and 2021 in 10 languages and held by 1,870 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hailed by Andre Gide as the patron saint of all outsiders, Simone Well's short life was ample testimony to her beliefs. In 1943, the final year of her life, unable to join the resistance movement in France, she worked in London for the Free French government in exile. Here she was commissioned to outline a plan for the renewal of Europe after the scourge of Nazism. The Need for Roots was the direct result. In it she seized the opportunity to denounce the false values of contemporary civilization. In the cult of materialism she witnessed a devastating loss of spirit and consequently of human values. To counteract this she sets out a radical vision for spiritual and political renewal with a passion for truth which sweeps through these pages. The book has become a lasting spiritual testament for our age, where we are confronted, as T.S. Eliot comments, by a genius akin to that of the saints."--Jacket

48 editions published between 1945 and 2021 in English and French and held by 931 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bespaloff's account of the Iliad brings out Homer's novelistic approach to character and the existential drama of his characters' choices; it is marked, too, by a tragic awareness of how the Iliad speaks to times and places where there is no hope apart from war. This edition brings together these two influential essays for the first time."--Jacket

Notebooks by Simone Weil( Book )

Simone Weil (1909-1943) was a defining figure of the twentieth century; a philosopher, Christian, resistance fighter, anarchist, feminist, Labour activist and teacher. She was described by T.S. Eliot as 'a woman of genius, of a kind of genius akin to that of the saints', and by Albert Camus as 'the only great spirit of our time'. Originally published posthumously in two volumes, these newly reissued notebooks, are among the very few unedited personal writings of Weil's that still survive today. Containing her thoughts on art, love, science, God and the meaning of life, they give context and
La pesanteur et la grâce by Simone Weil( Book )

"Il ne s'agit pas ici de philosophie, mais de vie", écrivait Gustave Thibon, en 1948, en présentant ce recueil de pensées tirées des manuscrits que Simone Weil lui avait confiés. Dès sa parution, ce livre a eu un "effet" qui ne devait pas s'estomper. Pour ses lecteurs, il fait partie des rencontres primordiales : un de ces quelques livres qui ne vous abandonnent pas sur le chemin de la vie. Les textes "nus et simples" de Simone Weil traduisent une expérience intérieure d'une authenticité et d'une exigence peu communes."
