Es considerada uno de los grandes clásicos de la narrativa erótica del siglo xx. Aunque La femme et le pantin ha sido editada varias veces en España, hasta el momento jamás había recogido los maravillosos grabados a color realizados por Paul-Émile Bécat para el volumen que imprimió en París Le Vasseur et Cie., Éditeurs, un 24 de noviembre de 1945, recién terminada la Segunda Guerra Mundial, con las ilustraciones coloreadas a mano por el propio Bécat. El espléndido trabajo a color de este gran ilustrador ofrece al libro esa visión de Andalucía tópica y extravagante que el cine también ha reflejado en las adaptaciones realizadas hasta ahora de La mujer y el pelele, como la de Josef von Sternberg -The Devil is a Woman (1935, con Marlene Dietrich y Lionel Atwill)-, Julien Duvivier

The Bohemians of the Latin Quarter by Henri Murger( Book )

1 edition published in 1951 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set in the Latin Quarter of 1840s Paris, Henri Murger's La Boheme creates a stark and colorful record of the boisterous, lean, and sensual world of eternal Bohemia. The author, like his character Rudolph, was a dispossessed poet living from hand to mouth while serving his literary apprenticeship in the hustle-and-bustle streets of the artists' quarter. In order to make a little money, Murger created fictional episodes based on his experiences in the heart of Bohemia and sold the first of them in 1847 - for fifteen francs each - to a small literary magazine titled Le Corsaire. From this humble beginning, La Boheme has become an undying tribute to true Bohemians or, as Murger describes them, "those called by art." The episodes first published in Le Corsaire were gathered into a book that sold 70,000 copies. Then in 1849 Theodore Barriere made the story into a play, which became a popular sensation in Paris. And finally Giacomo Puccini transformed Murger's tale into the famous opera, a work that continues to be applauded by audiences throughout the world. La Boheme, is a one-of-a-kind journey to a raw yet romantic place, to a sphere where people hunger for both artistic ideals and morsels of food."--Back cover
