Histoire du roman américain by Marc Saporta( Book )

21 editions published between 1970 and 1976 in 3 languages and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A moveable feast by Ernest Hemingway( Book )

28 editions published between 1964 and 2012 in French and Polish and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published posthumously in 1964, A Moveable Feast remains one of Ernest Hemingway's most beloved works. It is his classic memoir of Paris in the 1920s, filled with irreverent portraits of other expatriate luminaries such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein; tender memories of his first wife, Hadley; and insightful recollections of his own early experiments with his craft. It is a literary feast, brilliantly evoking the exuberant mood of Paris after World War I and the youthful spirit, unbridled creativity, and unquenchable enthusiasm that Hemingway himself epitomized
Composition no. 1 by Marc Saporta( Book )

15 editions published between 1962 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Entre los precursores de los textos no lineales, de la fragmentación del discurso que hoy sirve de paradigma a la literatura hipertextual, se encuentra el novelista francés Marc Saporta. Composition nº1 está compuesto de páginas sin encuadernar y sin numerar, dispuestas al azar en una caja. Cada página contiene una narración autónoma, el lector decide en qué orden desea leer el libro, y hasta dónde quiere llegar antes de comenzar de nuevo. En el prefacio, el autor indica: "Se ruega que el lector disponga de estas páginas como de una baraja de cartas (#x85;) Del encadenamiento de las circunstancias depende que la historia acabe bien o mal. Una vida se compone de elementos múltiples. Pero el número de composiciones posibles es infinito". La filosofía de Saporta sugiere que el tiempo y el orden en que se producen los acontecimientos en nuestras vidas tienen un papel más decisivo incluso que la propia naturaleza de los mismos" -- Cubierta

Les Erres du faucon : une psychobiographie de William Faulkner by Marc Saporta( Book )

5 editions published in 1989 in French and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cette étude qui vise à éclairer crûment les sources profondes d'un écrivain "torturé" est l'oeuvre de l'auteur de l'##Histoire du roman américain##. Elle découle de la conviction de Saporta que "toutes les clefs de l'oeuvre et de la personnalité de Faulkner sont contenues dans les contrevérités si abondamment répandues par l'écrivain sur lui-même" (p. 401). Stimulant mais discutable. Certaines affirmations font sursauter: Faulkner serait "profondément puéril" en dehors, voire à l'intérieur de ses créations littéraires (cf. p. 302)

Strategy : the logic of war and peace by Edward Luttwak( Book )

3 editions published in 1989 in French and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If you want peace, prepare for war". "A buildup of offensive weapons can be purely defensive". "The worst road may be the best route to battle". Strategy is made of such seemingly self-contradictory propositions, Edward Luttwak shows - they exemplify the paradoxical logic that pervades the entire realm of conflict. In this widely acclaimed work, now revised and expanded, Luttwak unveils the peculiar logic of strategy level by level, from grand strategy down to combat tactics. Having participated in its planning, Luttwak examines the role of air power in the 1991 Gulf War, then detects the emergence of "post-heroic" war in Kosovo in 1999 - an American war in which not a single American soldier was killed. In the tradition of Carl von Clausewitz, "Strategy" goes beyond paradox to expose the dynamics of reversal at work in the crucible of conflict. As victory is turned into defeat by over-extension, as war brings peace by exhaustion, ordinary linear logic is overthrown. Citing examples from ancient Rome to our own days, from Barbarossa and Pearl Harbor down to minor combat affrays, from the strategy of peace to the latest operational methods of war, this book by one of the world's foremost authorities reveals the ultimate logic of military failure and success, of war and peace
