Most widely held works by Henri Michaux
A barbarian in Asia by Henri Michaux( Book )
97 editions published between 1933 and 2006 in 7 languages and held by 902 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Quand je vis l'Inde, et quand je vis la Chine, pour la première fois, des peuples, sur cette terre, me parurent mériter d'être réels. Joyeux, je fonçai dans ce réel, persuadé que j'en rapportais beaucoup. Y croyais-je complètement? Voyage réel entre deux imaginaires. Peut-être au fond de moi les observais-je comme des voyages imaginaires qui se seraient réalisés sans moi, œuvre d'autres. Pays qu'un autre aurait inventés. J'en avais la surprise, l'émotion, l'agacement. C'est qu'il manque beaucoup à ce voyage pour être réel. Je le sus plus tard. Faisais-je exprès de laisser de côté ce qui précisément allait faire en plusieurs de ces pays de la réalité nouvelle : la politique? (...) Ce livre qui ne me convient plus, qui me gêne et me heurte, me fait honte, ne me permet de corriger que des bagatelles le plus souvent. Il a sa résistance. Comme s'il était un personnage. Il a un ton. A cause de ce ton, tout ce que je voudrais en contrepoids y introduire de plus grave, de plus réfléchi, de plus approfondi, de plus expérimenté, de plus instruit, me revient, m'est renvoyé ... comme ne lui convenant pas. Ici, barbare on fut, barbare on doit rester. -- Back cover
Miserable miracle : (mescaline) by Henri Michaux( Book )
75 editions published between 1956 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is an exploration. By means of words, signs, drawings. Mescaline, the subject explored." In Miserable Miracle, the great French poet and artist Henri Michaux, a confirmed teetotaler, tells of his life-transforming first encounters with a powerful hallucinogenic drug. At once lacerating and weirdly funny, challenging and Chaplinesque, his book is a breathtaking vision of interior space and a piece of stunning writing wrested from the grip of the unspeakable.-- Publisher description
