A guide to philosophy in six hours and fifteen minutes by Witold Gombrowicz ( )
6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,081 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Witold Gombrowicz (1904-1969), novelist, essayist, and playwright, was one of the most important Polish writers of the twentieth century. A candidate for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1968, he was described by Milan Kundera as "one of the great novelists of our century" and by John Updike as "one of the profoundest of the late moderns."" "Gombrowicz's works were considered scandalous and subversive by the ruling powers in Poland and were banned for nearly forty years. He spent his last years in France teaching philosophy; this book is a series of reflections based on his lectures."--Jacket

Canvas by Adam Zagajewski ( Book )
8 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Canvas, Adam Zagajewski's second volume of poems to appear in English, in a translation by Renata Gorczynski, Benjamin Ivry, and C. K. Williams, represents one of the new Europe's most commanding lyric voices in full power. Zagajewski's poetry portrays a contemporary spiritual reality haunted by paradox: the world he evokes is visited by the specters of totalitarianism, genocide, brute force, but also by natural beauty, reason, joy, and love. "And what if Heraclitus and Parmenides / are both right," Zagajewski asks, "and two worlds exist side by side, / one serene, the other insane..." "Who owns the earth... / By day it's conquered / by square-skulled men: / police. At nights / we reclaim our homeland." The outer world, political reality, is opposed by another realm, equally immediate and tangible if evanescent, where "despair turns to rapture; and the hard fruits of stars in the sky / ripen like grapes and beauty endures, shaken, unperturbed." Though he came to maturity in the upheavals of late Communist Poland and since 1981 has lived in France, Zagajewski is not a poet of exile. The condition he describes is existential, universal. His occasions are instants of contemplation, crucial if unremarkable moments in the lives of his heroes--Schubert, Simone Weil, Mozart, Bruckner--and in his own daily experience. The dualism of Zagajewski's art is double-edged. "Clearly nothing links enlightenment and the dark pain of cruelty," he writes. "At least two kingdoms exist / if not more." Cruelty coexists with enlightenment, true; but the reverse is also the case. And this is perhaps the ultimate spur for the questioning, the wonder, the insatiable hunger for being that are the most insistent and profound themes in this great poet's work

Judge not by André Gide ( Book )
3 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"At the age of sixty Andre Gide published Judge Not, a collection of writings detailing his own experiences with the law as well as his thoughts on truth, justice, and judgment." "In the first essay in Judge Not, "A Memoir of the Assize Court," Gide writes about his experience as a juror in several trials, including that of an arsonist (Gide actively sought jury duty, so great was his interest in legal matters). In "The Redureau Case" and "The Confined Woman of Poitiers" Gide analyzes two famous crimes of his day, an inexplicable slaughter by Marcel Redureau, a docile fifteen-year-old vineyard laborer who violently murdered his employer's family, and the respected Monnier family's confinement of their daughter, Blanche. Both cases fascinated Gide - elements of each would appear in his later fiction - and he looks closely at the facts of each as they came out in court. In addition, in "News Items" Gide analyzes the way newspapers present crime narratives, drawing from the hundreds of press clippings he collected throughout his life."--BOOK JACKET

Magellania by Jules Verne ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Magellania--the region around the Strait of Magellan--is the home of Kaw-djer, a mysterious man of Western origin whom the indigenous people consider a demigod. A man whose motto is "Neither God nor master," he has shunned Western civilization and its hypocrisies in order to live peacefully on an island claimed by no one. But when a storm strands a thousand immigrants on his island and they ask him to be the leader of their colony, Kaw-djer must decide whether to help them live and prosper in this foreign land at the end of the world or leave them to their fate. Jules Verne penned Magellania in 1897, following the death of his brother and at a time when his own health was beginning to fail. Originally titled Land of Fire and At the End of the World, Magellania was intended to reflect Verne's deeply held religious and political beliefs as well as examine his own mortality. This first English translation of the original manuscript shows Magellania to be a unique, forceful novel that widens the scope of Verne's literary legacy. "--
Regatta : a celebration of rowing by Benjamin Ivry ( Book )
3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Albert Camus : a life by Olivier Todd ( Book )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume is a biography of French Algerian author, philosopher, and journalist Albert Camus (1913-1960). Camus won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957. He was a key philosopher of the 20th-century and his most famous work is the novel L'Étranger (The Stranger). This work is the study of a man caught in conflicts between family loyalties and his own passionate nature, between the call to political action and devotion to his art, between his support of the native Algerians and his identification with the forgotten poor whites. Exploring Camus's impoverished childhood in the Algerian city of Belcourt, his underground activities during the Occupation in Paris, the intrigues of the French literati who embraced him after the publication of his first novel, L'Étranger, the author uncovers the solitary private man behind the mask of his celebrity. He shows us a writer isolated by his own success, crippled by the charms of women he could not resist, debilitated by the tuberculosis that did not kill him. The auto accident that did adds only to the ironies in the life of this international giant of twentieth-century literature
