Paper collage : selected aphorisms and short prose by Georges Perros( Book )

51 editions published between 1960 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Should you find yourself strolling along the coastal heights of Douarnenez, a Brittany town near the westernmost point of continental France, you would do well to look out for a signpost marked, 2Georges Perros (1923{u2013}1978) {u2018}Dazzled by the sea.{u2019}3 Perros, who famously made that remark and settled there in 1959, was initially an actor but is now best known for his literary output, which was marked by stylistic freshness and frank criticism. Perros lived anonymously in the fishing port of Douarnenez, scraping by as a freelance author and manuscript reader who taught and published a few books, but mostly corresponded with fellow writers or rode his motorcycle along the country roads. Indeed, Perros is known for his fame-shunning habits and for choosing to take up residence far from the sophistication of the capital city. But behind the folksy, sometimes sighing, sometimes bitter, sometimes sardonic, sometimes even resigned voice lurks an intensely sensitive, highly cultivated ruminator on the human condition. He is best remembered for the autobiographical poems collected in Blue Poems and An Ordinary Life, as well as for Paper Collage, his compendium of maxims, vignettes, short prose narratives, occasional diary-like notations, critical remarks, and personal essays. Making this essential work available for the first time in English, this book presents a selection of these touching and thought-provoking short texts alongside numerous maxims, a genre in which Perros excelled. With typical modesty, the author called himself a journalier des pensées, a day labourer who tills thoughts. As readers, we can do no better than to read the tilled thoughts of Georges Perros. -- From publisher's website
Correspondance, 1950-1971 by Jean Grenier( Book )

21 editions published between 1980 and 2007 in French and Undetermined and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jean Grenier et Jean Guéhenno font connaissance chez Daniel Halévy en 1927. Avec leurs attaches bretonnes, leur humanisme profond et leur désir de s'exprimer par l'écriture, ces deux professeurs agrégés sympathisent tout de suite. Le futur maître à penser d'Albert Camus mise surtout sur les valeurs éternelles, tandis que l'auteur de Caliban parle vient de signer avec leur ami commun Louis Guilloux et 158 autres la pétition d'Europe contre une loi qui abroge toute indépendance intellectuelle et toute liberté d'opinion. Grenier fera partie de l'équipe de Paulhan à la NRF mais soutiendra l'action de Guéhenno devenu directeur d'Europe. Guéhenno, délogé de son poste en 1936, saluera le courage de Grenier qui dénonce l'emprise des " orthodoxies ". Cette correspondance qui s'étend de 1927 à 1969 touche aux grandes questions du jour, surtout celles des années 30. Elle nous révèle en même temps deux grands écrivains dans l'intimité de leur vie personnelle ainsi que de leur oeuvre en voie d'élaboration.--

Le spectre de ses thèmes est extraordinairement ouvert, embrasse toute la tradition, qu'il soumet à une redoutable ironie, mais intègre aussi une galerie de portraits (Hugo, Bismarck, Aragon, Baudelaire, Cocteau ...) et quelques paysages
