"Au XVIIIe siècle vécut en France un homme qui compta parmi les personnages les plus géniaux et les plus horribles de son époque. Il s'appelait Jean-Baptiste Grenouille. Sa naissance, son enfance furent épouvantables et tout autre que lui n'aurait pas survécu. Mais Grenouille n'avait besoin que d'un minimum de nourriture et de vêtements, et son âme n'avait besoin de rien. Or ce monstre de Grenouille avait un don, ou plutôt un nez unique au monde, et il entendait bien devenir, même par les moyens les plus atroces, le Dieu tout-puissant de l'univers, car 'qui maîtrisait les odeurs maîtrisait le cœur des hommes' C'est son histoire, abominable... et drolatique, qui nous est racontée dans 'Le parfum', un best-seller mondial."

Mozart : portrait of a genius by Norbert Elias( Book )
2 editions published in 1991 in French and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mozart is a brilliant study of the great composer's life and creative genius, written by one of the most important social thinkers of our time. In this haunting portrait, Elias examines the paradoxes of Mozart's short existence - his creativity and social marginality, his musical sophistication and personal crudeness, his breathtaking accomplishments and psychological despair. Using psychoanalytic insights, Elias examines Leopold Mozart's carefully honed ambitions for his son and protege. From the age of six Mozart traveled with his father, performing in the major courts throughout Europe, as the elder Mozart worked on his son "like a sculptor on his sculpture." This deep bond between father and son, which shackled as well as nurtured, provides the lietmotif of Mozart's early genius and the basis of his complicated psyche. As Elias shows, Mozart chafed at the constraints of Viennese courtly culture. Growing up in a society which viewed musicians as manual laborers producing entertainment for the court, Mozart fought for an independent livelihood. But it was not until the next generation - that of Beethoven - that the necessary conditions were created for such an existence. Vienna's aristocracy ultimately turned its back on the composer who, with mounting debts, no work and no prospect of fulfilling his innermost desires, died feeling that his life had become empty of meaning. Elias intriguingly ponders the notion of genius, seen as a complex marriage of fantasy, inspiration, and convention. Mozart was able to fuse brilliant musical innovation to an accessible artistic canon, producing wholly original, yet understandable creations. In exploring the tension between personal creativity and the tastes of an era, Mozart is a book of startling insight and discovery
