The little prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 2,147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An aviator whose plane is forced down in the Sahara Desert encounters a little man from a small planet who describes his adventures in the universe seeking the secret of what is really important in life
Alone with America; essays on the art of poetry in the United States since 1950 by Richard Howard( Book )

49 editions published between 1969 and 1980 in English and held by 2,074 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
A happy death by Albert Camus( Book )

16 editions published between 1972 and 2013 in English and held by 1,738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A young man searches throughout life for the key to confronting death without fear
Paris in the twentieth century by Jules Verne( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,609 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 )

14 editions published between 1970 and 1996 in English and held by 1,272 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 1,038 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ben shu zuo zhe jiang ba er zha ke de yi pian duan pian xiao shuo,Qie ge cheng le 561 ge ji ben yu yan dan wei,Fen bie bei na ru dao le wu zhong dai ma xi lie li,Bing zai 93 ge dan yuan zhong de dao le fen xi
Robert Mapplethorpe by Richard Marshall( Book )

37 editions published between 1988 and 1991 in 4 languages and held by 1,007 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even a superficial glance at this sampling of Robert Mapplethorpe's work makes it clear that the tempest has outgrown its teapot. Had Sen. Jesse Helms and his ilk not turned these photographs into a cause ceelebre, few people would have paid any attention to them. Mapplethorpe was a successful commercial photographer, and his pictures rarely transcend a fashion-magazine sensibility, despite references to Edward Weston, George Platt Lynes et al. The background in a portrait of a gay S-M couple is so cluttered with bric-a-brac, the result looks like a glossy magazine ad for a ritzy interior designer. The most disturbing element of his infamous "erotic" works is not their sexual content but their coldness. His nude studies of muscular black men look so remote and objectified, they suggest Pygmalion asking Venus to turn Galatea back into a statue. An offbeat coffeetable book for people who want to find out what the brouhaha in Cincinnati is about without bothering to fly to Ohio
The pleasure of the text by Roland Barthes( Book )

9 editions published between 1975 and 1998 in English and held by 977 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 -- From (April 14, 2017)
For a new novel : essays on fiction by Alain Robbe-Grillet( Book )

8 editions published between 1965 and 1996 in English and held by 941 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The following book gathers together some of Wayne Burns' articles and essays. We believed that it would be a loss to those really concerned with literature if these writings remained scattered in various publications and in manuscript, and so we took on the job of mimeographing them, in order to get them into some kind of usable form
Les fleurs du mal : the complete text of The flowers of evil by Charles Baudelaire( Book )

8 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 920 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 charterhouse of Parma by Stendhal( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 910 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
The erasers by Alain Robbe-Grillet( Book )

9 editions published between 1964 and 2017 in English and French and held by 827 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A wonderful example of postmodern mystery where the conclusion takes back the reader to the very opening scene
G. Braque by Georges Braque( Book )

4 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Illustrated text, biographical outline, exhibition list, and 43 color plates
Empire of signs by Roland Barthes( Book )

8 editions published between 1982 and 2009 in English and held by 801 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
Two novels by Alain Robbe-Grillet( Book )

4 editions published between 1965 and 1993 in English and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Labyrinth: "Wounded in a last battle, suffering from exhaustion, prey to an ever-worsening fever, and aware that the enemy is about to arrive, a soldier wanders the city's strange streets to deliver a mysterious package and fulfill the last request of a dying comrade. The unfolding scenes of the soldier's struggle to make good on his promise, masterfully rendered by Robbe-Grillet, will be indelibly etched into the minds of readers long after they escape from the soldier's predicament."--Publisher description

Projet pour une révolution à New York by Alain Robbe-Grillet( Book )

4 editions published between 1973 and 2012 in English and French and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part prophecy and part erotic fantasy, this classic tale of otherworldly depravity features New York itself-or a foreigner's nightmare of New York-as its true protagonist. Set in the towers and tunnels of the quintessential American city, Alain Robbe-Grillet's novel turns this urban space into a maze where politics bleeds into perversion, revolution into sadism, activist into criminal, vice into art-and back again. Following the logic of a movie half-glimpsed through a haze of drugs and alcohol, Project for a Revolution in New York is a Sadean reverie that bears an alarming resemblance to the
