The second sex by Simone de Beauvoir( Book )

415 editions published between 1949 and 2018 in 9 languages and held by 8,132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a masterpiece that belongs with the handful of the world's great books on sex and human personality. It deals with the development of the female body, with sexual life, with the growth of personality, with the social position of woman, and with love and marriage. Mme de Beauvoir challenges some of the interpretations of women and her destiny offered by others. She examines a number of typical myths of women. Then she depicts on a large canvas the life of contemporary woman in frank and fascinating detail, drawing on unimpeachable literary sources, diaries, and intimate journals. Finally she offers a noble and inspiring concept of woman, existent in her own right, independent, cultured, capable, and proud. -- From publisher's description

The ethics of ambiguity by Simone de Beauvoir( Book )

113 editions published between 1946 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 2,157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this classic introduction to existentialist thought, French philosopher Simone de Beauvoir{u2019}s The Ethics of Ambiguity simultaneously pays homage to and grapples with her French contemporaries, philosophers Jean-Paul Sartre and Maurice Merleau-Ponty, by arguing that the freedoms in existentialism carry with them certain ethical responsibilities. De Beauvoir outlines a series of ways of being (the adventurer, the passionate person, the lover, the artist, and the intellectual), each of which overcomes the former{u2019}s deficiencies, and therefore can live up to the responsibilities of freedom. Ultimately, de Beauvoir argues that in order to achieve true freedom, one must battle against the choices and activities of those who suppress it. The Ethics of Ambiguity is the book that launched Simone de Beauvoir{u2019}s feminist and existential philosophy. It remains a concise yet thorough examination of existence and what it means to be human.--Description from an alternate version

These three long stories draw us into the lives of three women, all past their first youth, all facing unexpected crises. In the title story, the heroine's serenity is shattered when she learns that her husband is having an affair.

In "The Monologue," a rich, spoiled woman, home alone on New Year's Eve, pours out a lifetime's rage and frustration in a harrowing diatribe. Enthralling as fiction, suffused with de Beauvoir's remarkable insights into women, The Woman Destroyed gives us a legendary writer at her best

Simone de Beauvoir : feminist writings by Simone de Beauvoir( )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1947, Simone de Beauvoir embarked on a U.S. lecture tour over the objections of a French establishment that hated existentialism but found a woman existentialist unbearable. Newly discovered writings from the time of the tour launch this sixth volume in the acclaimed Beauvoir series, showing a philosopher immersed in feminist ideas and building toward her 1949 classic The Second Sex. By turns surprising and revelatory, Feminist Writings presents recently uncovered works and lectures while providing new translations and contexts for Beauvoir's more familiar writings. Spanning Beauvoir's career from the 1940s through 1986, the pieces explain the paradoxes in her political and feminist stances, including her famous 1972 announcement of a "conversion to feminism" after decades of activism on behalf of women. They also document and contextualize Beauvoir's thinking, writing, public statements, and activities in the service of causes like French divorce law reform and the rights of women in the Iranian Revolution. In addition, the volume provides new insights into Beauvoir's complex thinking and illuminates her historic role in linking the movements for sexual freedom, sexual equality, homosexual rights, and women's rights in France. -- from dust jacket

A superb autobiography by one of the great literary figures of the twentieth century, Simone de Beauvoir's Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter offers an intimate picture of growing up in a bourgeois French family, rebelling as an adolescent against the conventional expectations of her class, and striking out on her own with an intellectual and existential ambition exceedingly rare in a young woman in the 1920s. She vividly evokes her friendships, love interests, mentors, and the early days of the most important relationship of her life, with fellow student Jean-Paul Sartre, against the backdrop of a turbulent political time
