J'aimerais tellement que tu sois là : roman by Graham Swift( Book )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in French and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Un homme, seul dans sa demeure perdue sur l’île de Wright, regarde fixement par la fenêtre, comme pour rattraper la femme qui vient de le quitter sans promesse de retour. À ses côtés, une arme. Que compte t-il en faire? Quels mots les époux ont-ils pu échanger qui aient provoqué une telle scène? Nés tous deux sur les terres du Devon, Jake et Ellie semblaient pourtant promis l’un à l’autre depuis l’enfance. Après des années passées à tenter avec acharnement de sauver l’exploitation familiale, ils ont laissé une distance insidieuse s’installer. Et certains fantômes s’interposer entre eux. Quelque temps avant le départ d’Ellie, Jake apprend la mort de son frère, Tom, en Irak et à l’annonce de cette tragédie, il replonge dans les affres d’une relation pleine de malentendus et de sentiments refoulés sur plusieurs générations. Explorant l’intimité d’un couple qui semble s’être défait, Swift dépeint la fin d’un monde, celui des campagnes anglaises du XXe siècle, mais aussi l’emprise de l’Histoire et des mythes familiaux sur le destin des individus.

Ode au vent d'Ouest : Adonaïs et autres poèmes by Percy Bysshe Shelley( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in French and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shelley : the pursuit by Richard Holmes( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in French and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dispensing with the long-established Victorian picture of Shelley as a blandly ethereal character, Richard Holmes projects a startling image of "a darker and more earthly, crueler and more capable figure." Expelled from college, disowned by his aristocratic father, driven from England, Shelley led a life marked from its beginning to its early end by a violent rejection of society; he embraced rebellion and disgrace without thought of the cost to himself or to others. Here we have the real Shelley - radical agitator, atheist, apostle of free love, but above all a brilliant and uncompromising poetic innovator, whose life and work have proved an essential inspiration to poets as varied as W.B. Yeats and Allen Ginsberg."--Jacket

Aias = Ajax by Sophocles( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brought boldly to life by Herbert Golder and Richard Pevear's translation and contextualized by Herbert Golder's eloquent introduction, this early Sophoclean tragedy tells the story of the Homeric hero better known as Ajax, who was second only to Achilles among the Greek warriors. In Greek tradition, Aias figures as the archaic warrior who dies in shame after his betrayal by the Greeks. Sophocles turns tradition inside out, portraying Aias' suicide not as a disgrace but as heroism. He endows Aias' suicide with a meaning radically different from previous versions of the Aias myth - Aias is not the hero whom time has passed by, but rather the man who steps beyond time. Most previous versions and interpretations have equivocated over Sophocles' bold vision. This edition of Aias translates precisely that transformation of the hero from the bygone figure to the man who transcends time."--Jacket
