Casanova l'admirable by Philippe Sollers( )

32 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

His is a name synonymous with seduction. His was a life lived without limits. Giacomo Casanova left behind thousands of pages detailing his years among Europe's notable and noble. In Casanova the Irresistible, Philippe Sollers - intellectual and revered visionary of the French avant-garde - proffers a lively reading of and guide to the famed libertine's sprawling memoir. Armine Kotin Mortimer's translation of Soller's reading tracks the alluring Venetian through the whole of his astounding and disreputable life. Eschewing myth, Sollers dares to present the plain realities of a man "simple, direct, courageous, cultivated, seductive, funny. A philosopher in action." The lovers are here, and the ruses and adventures. But Sollers also rescues Casanova the writer, a gifted composer of words who reigns as a titan of eighteenth-century literature. As always, Sollers seeks to shame society for its failure to recognize its failings. By admiring those of Casanova's admirable qualities present in himself, Sollers spurns bourgeois hypocrisy and cliché to affirm a jocund philosophy of life devoted to the twinned pursuits of pleasure and joy. -- from dust jacket

Drame; roman by Philippe Sollers( Book )

37 editions published between 1965 and 1990 in 3 languages and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A superbly translated coupling of Sollers's Drame (1965) and Barthes's contemporary commentary. In this early piece, Sollers, subsequently a bestselling author because of his smug Don Juan persona, discreetly keeps watch over his fictionalizing self as it moves from nonverbal impressions to verbalized thoughts. He wants to escape the limitations imposed by language ("a trap that works . . . when I think I am the most free"). Inevitably failing, he delivers an open narrative in which "I," "he," and "you" interact by association. Barthes's approving essay, containing Sollers's footnotes, translates this doomed narrative quest into critical discourse, thereby assuring readers that they have indeed understood Sollers.

Mysterious Mozart by Philippe Sollers( Book )

25 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both a beguiling portrait of the artist and an idiosyncratic self-portrait of the author, Mysterious Mozart is Philippe Sollers's alternately oblique and searingly direct interpretation of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's oeuvre and lasting mystique, audaciously reformulated for the postmodern age. With a mix of slang, abstractions, quotations, first- and third-person narratives, and blunt opinion, French writer and critic Philippe Sollers taps into Mozart's playful correspondence and the lesser-known pieces of his enormous repertoire to analyze the popularity and public perceptions of his music. Detailing Mozart's drive to continue producing masterpieces even when saddled with debt and riddled with illness and anxiety, Sollers powerfully and meticulously analyzes Mozart's seven last great operas using a psychoanalytical approach to the characters' relationships. As Sollers explores themes of constancy, prodigy, freedom, and religion, he offers up bits of his own history revealing his affinity for the creative geniuses of the eighteenth century and a yearning to bring that era's utopian freedom to life in contemporary times. What emerges is an inimitable portrait of a man and a musician whose greatest gift is a quirky companionability, a warm and mysterious appeal that distinguishes Mozart from other great composers and is brilliantly echoed by Sollers's artful tangle of narrative

Francesca Woodman by Francesca Woodman( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in 3 languages and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the thirty years since her death, FrancescaWoodmans work has retained an undeniable immediacy and continues to inspire a cult-like following of admirers.Woodman began photographing at the age of thirteen. By the time she enrolled at the Rhode Island School of Design in 1975, she was already an accomplished photographer with a remarkably mature and focused approach to her work. At the age of twenty-two, she committed suicide. Woodman might be merely a tragic footnote in the history of photography were it not for the startlingly compelling, complex and artistically resolved body of work she produced during her short career. Her oeuvre represents a remarkably rich and singular exploration of the human body in space and of the genre of self-portraiture in particular. Her practice assimilated and advanced aspects of feminist theory, Conceptualist practice, and performance art. Thus, a close re-examination of the maturation and reception of Woodmans artistic vision presents an important and timely opportunity to reassess the heady artistic moment during which she came of age. This catalogue, produced by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in conjunction with the first major American exhibition of the artists work in more than two decades, promises to be a landmark reconsideration of Woodman for the twenty-first century. It will paint a fuller picture of her oeuvre than has previously been available, spanning her earliest student experiments to her late, large-scale blueprint studies of caryatid-like figures for the massive Temple Project, and her experiments with fashion photography. The exhibition will bring to light many photographs that have never before been exhibited or published, and the book will focus on these and other vintage prints that theWoodman estate is making available for this exhibition and publication. These rare prints will allow audiences to appreciateWoodmans skill as a printer, and to grasp the importance of the final print to her artistic vision. Through all of these means, Francesca Woodman will examine why her photographs continue to be so profoundly affective many decades after their making

"Du vrac en phase avec l'époque" (J.P. Enthoven). Robert Lévesque a bien vu que ce "magistral roman d'idées", "confession d'un agent du siècle" (un agent secret qui avait prévu l'attentat contre Jean-Paul II) est écrit dans l'esprit de Diderot et qu'il aborde les grands événements, questions et énigmes de cette fin de siècle: effondrement du communisme, trafic d'organes, manipulations génétiques, mafia, narco-trafic, etc. Sollers poursuit son obsession: "écrire l'envers de l'histoire contemporaine" (P.S.)
