Pleasures and regrets by Marcel Proust( Book )

A great legend has grown up around Marcel Proust. It is that after years of semi-invalidism and unproductive dilettantism he underwent a sudden, rather miraculous transformation and emerged at thrity-eight as the author of one of the most original and influential novels of our century, the brillant Remembrance of things past. The truth is that during the years preceding the writing of his masterpiece Proust was quietly producing stories and essays which had the arresting vision, humor, and eloquence which his novel finally revealed to a wider public than his own small Parisian coterie. This early miscellany is not merely a "dreaming of works to come" but a series of experiments in various genres--narrative, satire, criticism, prose poetry, and personal essay. Each of these experiments has its own life and validity as well as the additional interest it holds as a foreshadowing of the culmination of Proust's career when all these threads are drawn together in a grand synthesis. -- Back cover
Illuminations, and other prose poems by Arthur Rimbaud( Book )

Rimbaud, born in 1854, started to write at an early age. By 17 he had written his most famous poem, 'The Drunken Boat'. He then embarked on a turbulent homosexual relationship with the poet Verlaine, from which came some of their most original work, including A Season in Hell and Illuminations. Rimbaud rejected writing at the age of 20. After years of travelling and gun-running in Africa, he died in 1891, aged 37

5 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Baudelaire composed the series of prose poems known as Paris Spleen between 1855 and his death in 1867. He attached great importance to his work in this then unusual form, asking, "Which one of us, in his moments of ambition, has not dreamed of the miracle of a poetic prose, musical, without rhythm and without rhyme, supple enough and rugged enough to adapt itself to the lyrical impulses of the soul, the undulations of reverie, the jibes of conscience?"

Miserable miracle; mescaline by Henri Michaux( Book )

10 editions published between 1963 and 2002 in English and held by 132 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
