The details of time : conversations with Ernst Jünger by Julien Hervier( Book )

9 editions published between 1986 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From a series of informal interviews at the time of the author's ninetieth birthday, The Details of Time: Conversations with Ernst Junger is the intense account of a life spanning the whole of the twentieth century. Both witness and active player in some of our century's most dramatic and often tragic moments, Junger talks here with remarkable candor of the events and ideas that shaped him as a writer." "Scarred by terrible ironies and contradictions, Junger's extraordinary career holds as much fascination as his writing: escape to Africa as a teenager to join the French foreign legion; wounded fourteen times in the trenches and awarded Germany's highest distinction during World War I; service as an officer in Occupied France during World War II, while writing On the Marble Cliffs, a thinly veiled attack on the Nazi regime that slipped past the censors to gain notoriety as an international best-seller; his association with the July 20 assassination attempt against Hitler, and, finally, the difficult years of a notorious man-of-letters who would also become a noted entomologist and a onetime dabbler in hallucinogenics." "These "conversations" are an intense reflection on the major events of the author's life, from a childhood marked by the Dreyfuss Affair and the sinking of the Titanic, to his meetings with such major figures as Heidegger, Borges, Picasso, and Braque. Junger treats ambiguous, sometimes alarming beliefs with rare honesty, affording an absorbing, often haunting look into the mind of one of Europe's most renowned writers. Full of wit and wisdom. The Details of Time is a perfect introduction to Junger's work, as well as a personal testament to a life in which joie de vivre and intellect are inevitably intertwined."--Jacket

Romans, récits, nouvelles by Pierre Drieu La Rochelle( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cette édition propose, précisément, "une bonne partie" de ses œuvres romanesques : des romans, des nouvelles et des textes dans lesquels le récit tourne à l'essai ou à l'autobiographie. Au reste, les idées de Drieu et sa propre histoire ("je n'ai qu'elle à raconter") sont présentes partout, avec une intensité variable. Lui-même parlait de "fiction confessionnelle", mélange de confession et d'invention, de sincérité et d'affabulation, de mémoire et de rêve. La richesse du cocktail n'est pas pour rien dans le charme qu'exercent ses livres et que renforcent encore des alliances peu fréquentes, entre désinvolture et gravité, lucidité et aveuglement, espoir et désarroi."--Publisher website

Drieu la Rochelle : une histoire de désamours : essai by Julien Hervier( Book )

7 editions published in 2018 in French and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From "Alcohol" to "Saphism", Julien Hervier draws an alphabetical portrait of Drieu la Rochelle in "désamoureux". This original approach illuminates the writer, "covered with women" and entered Pleiades in 2012, in the shadows that make him a special case in literature, both hated and admired. A story of disillusionment thus explores the great painful passions of the author of Gilles and the Wisp : war, politics, friendship and sexuality, and others, less known: painting, religion, money, drugs, etc. After his great biography his great biography of Ernst Jünger, Julien Hervier was expected to dedicate a book to Drieu la Rochelle, of which he is one of the best connoisseurs today. Rather than a biographical sum, he chose the elegance and sobriety of an alphabet. This objective essay, with selected quotations, will not fail to be a breviary for lovers of the writer and, for others, a fascinating entry into his work

"Over an amazing 80-year career as a writer, Ernst Jünger (1895-1998) fought in WWI, became a leading writer of "soldierly nationalism" in the 1920s, and produced possibly the only anti-Nazi novel during the Third Reich, On the Marble Cliffs. Jünger's seeming moral ambiguities have made him the subject of much controversy in his home country. He has long been the subject of a series of highly charged debates about his work, and his presentation with the Goethe Prize (Germany's highest literary honor) in 1982 revived an old charge that Jünger had helped pave the way for fascism. The French, however, regard him as Germany's greatest twentieth-century author. Jünger's war diaries are important historical documents. He rejoined the army in 1941 and was sent to Paris, where he was in a unique position to observe the German occupation of France from the point of view of an occupier, but one who was not blinded by Nazi ideology. The First Paris Diary begins in 1941, when Jünger began his war duties as a mail censor of the occupying regime, and ends in October of 1942, as he leaves Paris to travel to the Eastern Front. Through his high-level contacts, Jünger was aware of the situation on the Eastern front and the atrocities being committed there. He was also a member of a secret circle of aristocratic officers, led by Rommel, who opposed Hitler's conduct of the war and were conspiring to arrest him in France in 1944 and turn him over to allies in exchange for lenient armistice conditions. In addition to descriptions of his official duties, the diaries describe Jünger's wanderings through Parisian bookshops and cafes, his conversations at salons with French intellectuals, and his reflections on books and nature (he was a trained biologist)"--
