The unquiet grave, a word cycle by Cyril Connolly( Book )

92 editions published between 1944 and 2006 in 5 languages and held by 1,266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cyril Connolly (1903-1974) was one of the most influential book reviewers and critics in England, contributing regularly to The New Statesmen, The Observer, and The Sunday Times. His essays have been collected in book form and published to wide acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic. The Unquiet Grave is considered by many to be his most enduring work. It is a highly personal journal written during the devastation of World War II, filled with reflective passages that deal with aging, the break-up of a long term relationship, and the horrors of the war around him. It is also a wonderfully varied intellectual feast: a collection of aphorisms, epigrams, and quotations from such masters of European literature as Horace, Baudelaire, Sainte-Beuve, Flaubert, and Goethe. Dazzlingly original in both form and content, The Unquiet Grave has continued to influence generations of writers

Puis C. Connolly "s'attaque aux écueils qui guettent l'écrivain": le succès, l'illusion de la postérité, la politique, le mariage, le travail de critique littéraire, le journalisme, etc. Dans une troisième partie, autobiographique, l'auteur "explore dans son enfance ce qui a pu forger" son sens critique (selon M. Braudeau) et se livre à l'analyse critique des "public schools" dont il est issu
