Alone with America; essays on the art of poetry in the United States since 1950 by Richard Howard( Book )

44 editions published between 1969 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Howard in the initial instance set himself the overwhelming task of a critical examination in detail of forty-one American poets as widely different as James Merrill and Gary Snyder, some celebrated and some obscure ... In this new and enlarged edition, one hundred pages longer than the original volume, he has added essays to many of the original chapters, dealing with new work by the poets originally examined ... but leaving the original text unchanged. --Atheneum

Paris in the twentieth century by Jules Verne( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A futuristic novel, written in the 1860s, describing the Paris of the 1960s, a city of cars, computers, even fax machines. The rulers are corporations, technology is god and people are expected to accept material profit as the reason for living. The novel was rejected by the publisher of the day as unrealistic
The immoralist by André Gide( Book )

16 editions published between 1970 and 1996 in English and held by 1,297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A translation of Gide's classic psychological novel depicting the gradual degeneration of an idealistic young scholar
S/Z by Roland Barthes( Book )

12 editions published between 1974 and 2006 in English and held by 1,054 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'auteur analyse le court récit, Sarrasine, de Balzac. Sa méthode d'analyse découpe le texte en 'lexies', des fragments dégagés de la structure narrative, de grammaire. L'auteur constate que cette façon d'analyser un récit donne au lecteur une interprétation plurielle, sans contraintes, où les réseaux sont multiples et jouent entre eux. Le texte devient une galaxie de signifiants, non une structure de signifiés
For a new novel : essays on fiction by Alain Robbe-Grillet( Book )

7 editions published between 1965 and 1989 in English and held by 980 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<<Ces textes ne constituent en rien une théorie du roman; ils tentent seulement de dégager quelques lignes d'évolution qui me paraissent capitales dans la littérature contemporaine. Si j'emploie volontiers, dans bien des pages, le terme de Nouveau Roman, ce n'est pas pour désigner une école, ni même un groupe défini et constitué d'écrivains qui travailleraient dans le même sens; il n'y a là qu'une appellation commode englobant tous ceux qui cherchent de nouvelles formes romanesques, capables d'exprimer (ou de créer) de nouvelles relations entre l'homme et le monde, tous ceux qui sont décidés à inventer le roman, c'est-à-dire à inventer l'homme. Ils savent, ceux-là, que la répétition systématique des formes du passé est non seulement absurde et vaine, mais qu'elle peut même devenir nuisible : en nous fermant les yeux sur notre situation réelle dans le monde présent, elle nous empêche en fin de compte de construire le monde et l'homme de demain.>> (Alain Robbe-Grillet)
Les fleurs du mal : the complete text of The flowers of evil by Charles Baudelaire( Book )

9 editions published between 1982 and 1987 in English and held by 949 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This translation of Baudelaire's magnum opus, perhaps the most powerful and influential book of verse from the 19th century, won the American Book Award for Translation. And the honor was well-deserved, for this is one of Richard Howard's greatest efforts. It's all here: a timeless translation, the complete French text, and Mazur's striking black and white monotypes in one elegant edition
The pleasure of the text by Roland Barthes( Book )

6 editions published between 1975 and 1990 in English and held by 915 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is it that we do when we enjoy a text? What is the pleasure of reading? The French critic and theorist Roland Barthes's answers to these questions constitute "perhaps for the first time in the history of criticism ... not only a poetics of reading ... but a much more difficult achievement, an erotics of reading ... Like filings which gather to form a figure in a magnetic field, the parts and pieces here do come together, determined to affirm the pleasure we must take in our reading as against the indifference of (mere) knowledge."--Richard Howard

Empire of signs by Roland Barthes( Book )

8 editions published between 1982 and 2009 in English and held by 799 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El Japón es el país de la escritura. En 1970, Roland Barthes dedica una obra al sistema simbólico japonés, en un viaje no por el Japón rela, sino por el de sus signos. Barthes no es el turista que pasea por las calles, degusta la gatronomía o asiste a representaciones teatrales, sino el semiólogo que se afana por interpretar el significado y el significante. El resultado es un tratado sobre el signo, sus reglas y su belleza. Con El Imperio de los signos, Roland Barthes, uno de los máximos representantes del postestructuralismo francés y uno de los padres de la semiótica moderna, inicia una fase en la que comienza a sentirse escritor, a construir un estilo propio; en palabras del autor: "Este libro es una especie de entrada, no tanto en la novela cuanto en lo novelesco". Ésta es una obra de culto para todos aquellos que aceptan el extrañamiento que supone la confrotación con la civilización japonesa. Su lectura nos obliga a desprendernos de nuestras referencias y códigos culturales para entrar en un mundo dedicado enteramente al signo. Años después de su redacción, y pese a la evolución sufrida por algunos aspectos de la sociedad japonesa, los análisis de Roland Barthes permanecen inalterables."--Contratapa

The charterhouse of Parma by Stendhal( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Charterhouse of Parma chronicles the exploits of Fabrizio del Dongo, an ardent young aristocrat who joins Napoleon's army just before the battle of Waterloo. Yet perhaps the novel's most unforgettable characters are the hero's beautiful aunt, the alluring Duchess of Sanseverina, and her lover, Count Mosca, who plot to further Fabrizio's political career at the treacherous court of Parma in a sweeping story that illuminates an entire epoch of European history." "This edition includes original illustrations by Robert Andrew Parker and Notes and a Translator's Afterword by Richard Howard."--Jacket

7 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here, in the first volume to draw together material from Richard Howard's twelve books of poems, readers can fully appreciate the erudite nuances of his lyric poetry and the human and historical bravura of his monologues and imagined conversations among famous figures."--Jacket
The erasers by Alain Robbe-Grillet( Book )

3 editions published between 1964 and 1987 in English and French and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alain Robbe-Grillet is internationally hailed as the chief spokesman for the noveau roman and one of the great novelists of the twentieth century. The Erasers, his first novel, reads like a detective story but is primarily concerned with weaving and then probing a complete mixture of fact and fantasy. The narrative spans the twenty-four-hour period following a series of eight murders in eight days, presumably the work of a terrorist group. After the ninth murder, the investigation is turned over to a police agent, who may in fact be the assassin. Both an engrossing mystery and a sinister deconstruction of reality, The Erasers intrigues and unnerves with equal force as it pull us along to its ominous conclusion

When the world spoke French by Marc Fumaroli( Book )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the eighteenth century, from the death of Louis XIV until the Revolution, French culture set the standard for all of Europe. In Sweden, Austria, Italy, Spain, England, Russia, and Germany, among kings and queens, diplomats, military leaders, writers, aristocrats, and artists, French was the universal language of politics and intellectual life. In When the World Spoke French, Marc Fumaroli presents a gallery of portraits of Europeans and Americans who conversed and corresponded in French, along with excerpts from their letters or other writings. --from publisher description
