La damnation de Faust by Hector Berlioz( )

45 editions published between 1970 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 1,967 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The most dramatic piece that Berlioz ever wrote," is how conductor John Nelson describes La Damnation de Faust. The composer designated this thrilling hybrid of oratorio and opera a 'légende dramatique'. Following in the triumphant footsteps of Les Troyens, also recorded at the Auditorium Erasme in Strasbourg, this performance reunites Nelson and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg with singers Michael Spyres, Joyce DiDonato and Nicolas Courjal."
Aurélia by Gérard de Nerval( Book )

241 editions published between 1897 and 2019 in 13 languages and held by 938 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout his life, the poet and writer Gérard de Nerval (1808-1855) struggled with bouts of madness--inspired in part by his obsessions for idealized women--and he ended his life wandering homeless on the streets of Paris until he was found hanging from a sewer grating, an apparent suicide. As one of the most individualistic of the colorful French Romantics, the details of Nerval's life have passed into legend. Writers and commentators have served up any number of versions of his mysterious love affair with the actress Jenny Colon--not to mention his famous habit of walking a lobster on a pale blue leash through the gardens of the Palais Royale. Soon after the completion, in 1853, of his bizarre tale of obsession, the novella Sylvie, Nerval began, under advice from his doctor, an extended personal journal/essay chronicling his psychic experiences and visions. What emerged from these writings is Aurélia, a text hailed by the Surrealists as an important precursor to their own theories. Simply put, Aurélia, is a masterpiece in the literature of dreams, myths, and hallucinations. This expanded and corrected version of the original 1991 Asylum Arts edition of Aurélia, adds the novella Sylvie. Together these novellas give witness to the claim that Nerval was one of the most remarkable prose writers of his century. --Asylum Arts Publishing

Edition critique d'un texte dont la version définitive date de 1851. Il s'agit, comme l'écrit le préfacier Michel Jeanneret, d'un "aimable récit de voyage" d'une "enfilade d'anecdotes plaisantes", jalonnée d'un "discours de la folie" (en partie censuré). Dans ce récit à la première personne, l'auteur "réalise la symbiose du rêve et de la raison" (p. 40). Il a trouvé la formule qui le conduira aux ##Filles du feu##, à ##Aurélia##

Selected writings by Gérard de Nerval( Book )

17 editions published between 1957 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gerard de Nerval (1808-1855), a contemporary of Poe, De Quincey, Gogol and Heine, introduced into French literature a mode of writing rooted in German romanticism yet already recognizably modernist in its explorations of the uncertain borderlines between dream and reality, irony and madness, autobiography and fiction." "This selection of writings - the first such comprehensive gathering to appear in English - provides an overview of Nerval's work as a poet, belletrist, short-story writer and autobiographer. In addition to 'Aurelia', the memoir of his madness, 'Sylvie' (considered a 'masterpiece' by Proust), and the hermetic sonnets of 'The Chimeras', this volume includes Nerval's Doppelganger tales and experimental fictions. Selections from his correspondence demonstrate a lucid awareness of the strategies by which nineteenth-century psychiatry consigned his visionary imagination to the purgatory of mental illness."--Jacket
