The woman and the puppet = (La femme et le pantin) by Pierre Louÿs( Book )

201 editions published between 1896 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Por su ambientación en la España del XIX, ¿La mujer y el pelele¿, "novela española", parece más próxima al exotismo romántico de ¿Carmen¿ que a las búsquedas formales parnasianas. Sin embargo, una lectura atenta revelará la presencia de rasgos que la vinculan no sólo con el naturalismo, sino también con proyectos tan alejados del exotismo popular y costumbrista como pueden ser el decadente y el simbolista. La obra bucea en el abismo de la naturaleza misma de la pasión, adelantándose, con sombría lucidez, a las teorías del deseo que abrirán el siglo XX, e ilustra con intensidad el dramatismo de la llamada "guerra de los sexos", pero contribuye también a desenmascarar los mecanismos de un imaginario masculino capaz de generar arquetipos de tan probada eficacia como el de la ¿femme fatale¿
The adventures of King Pausole by Pierre Louÿs( Book )

244 editions published between 1806 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The code of government of the legendary (Anatole France's) mythic King Pausole prescribed but two laws for his subjects: the first being, Hurt no man, and the second, Then do as you please. Pierre Louÿs, pseudonym of Pierre Louis (1870-1925), was a French novelist and poet who expressed pagan sensuality with stylistic perfection. Louÿs frequented Parnassian and Symbolist circles and was a friend of the composer Claude Debussy. He founded various literary reviews, notably La Conque in 1891. His 'Chansons de Bilitis' (1894), prose poems about Sapphic love, purporting to be translations from the Greek, deceived even experts. 'Aphrodite' (1896), a novel depicting courtesan life in ancient Alexandria, made him famous and it became the best-selling work by any living French writer (350,000 copies)
