Madame Bovary: patterns of provincial life by Gustave Flaubert( Book )

15 editions published between 1950 and 1993 in English and held by 2,177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One hundred years ago Madame Bovary, by Gustave Flaubert, was first published. It is, therefore, particularly fitting that the new translation by Francis Steegmuller should be published as a part of the centenary celebration. Perhaps no book in the history of the novel has been more enjoyed and praised by critics, fellow craftsmen and general readers of all sorts than this tale of a provincial woman who could not bear the discrepancy between her romantic dreams and the dull routine of her daily life. There is a special poignancy for most of us in the story of Emma Bovary, whose attempt to impose upon her humdrum life the substance of those dreams brought about her own dissolution. Francis Steegmuller is uniquely qualified to translate Falubert's inimitable prose, the quality of which is almost as inaccessible to translation as is most poetry. Mr. Steegmuller's Flaubert and Madame Bovary is a contemporary classic, his selection and translation of Flaubert's letters outstanding, and his critical interpretation of Flaubert among the most acute. He is eminently fitted to provide the centenary translation of Madame Bovary"--Jacket

The ancient shore : dispatches from Naples by Shirley Hazzard( )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in Australia, Shirley Hazzard first moved to Naples as a young woman in the 1950s to take up a job with the United Nations. It was the beginning of a long love affair. Battered by World War II, Naples would remain for decades one of the most violent and impoverished places in Italy, but in its passion, vivacity, and beauty, the city still justified the loving words written about it by Goethe, Byron, and others over the centuries. Here are the best of Hazzard's writings on Naples, along with a New Yorker essay by her late husband, Francis Steegmuller. For the pair, the Naples of Pliny, Gibbon, and Auden is constantly alive to them: "The ghosts of this region are too many, and too vital, to sadden us," Hazzard writes. "Rather, they create a company, ironic and benign, to which we ourselves may ultimately hope to belong."--Publisher description

At once a classic of travel literature and a penetrating portrait of a 'sensibility on tour', Flaubert in Egypt wonderfully captures the young writer's impressions during his 1849 voyages.

Alcools by Guillaume Apollinaire( Book )

2 editions published between 1964 and 1965 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guiilaume Apollinaire, a leading figure amongst the young writers and artists in France until his death in 1918, published 'Alcools', his first book of poems, in 1913. With its wide range of verse forms and contrasting registers of style, 'Alcools' had a considerable influence on Surrealist poetry. The poems provide a splendid example of the lyrical art in which the paradoxes of Apollinaire are held in high poetic tension. The editor's introduction and notes take place in the 20th Century and explain allusion and difficulties in the text
