Faust, a tragedy by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )

19 editions published between 1937 and 1971 in French and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faust is the protagonist of a classic German legend. He is a scholar who is highly successful yet dissatisfied with his life, so he makes a pact with the Devil, exchanging his soul for unlimited knowledge and worldly pleasures. The Faust legend has been the basis for many literary, artistic, cinematic, and musical works that have reinterpreted it through the ages. Faust and the adjective Faustian imply a situation in which an ambitious person surrenders moral integrity in order to achieve power and success for a delimited term. The Faust of early books - as well as the ballads, dramas, movies, and puppet-plays which grew out of them - is irrevocably damned because he prefers human to divine knowledge; "he laid the Holy Scriptures behind the door and under the bench, refused to be called doctor of Theology, but preferred to be styled doctor of Medicine". Plays and comic puppet theatre loosely based on this legend were popular throughout Germany in the 16th century, often reducing Faust and Mephistopheles to figures of vulgar fun. The story was popularised in England by Christopher Marlowe, who gave it a classic treatment in his play, The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus. In Goethe's reworking of the story two hundred years later, Faust becomes a dissatisfied intellectual who yearns for "more than earthly meat and drink" in his life. - Amazon (summary for a later edition of this title)

Silvae by P. Papinius Statius( Book )

12 editions published in 1935 in 3 languages and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Statius' Silvae, thirty-two occasional poems, were written probably between 89 and 96 A.D. Here the poet congratulates friends, consoles mourners, sends thanks, admires a monument or artistic object, describes a memorable scene. The verse is light in touch, with a distinct picture quality. Statius gives us in these impromptu poems clear images of Domitian's Rome."--BOOK JACKET
Journey to the Orient by Gérard de Nerval( Book )

3 editions published in 1927 in French and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edition critique d'un texte dont la version définitive date de 1851. Il s'agit, comme l'écrit le préfacier Michel Jeanneret, d'un "aimable récit de voyage" d'une "enfilade d'anecdotes plaisantes", jalonnée d'un "discours de la folie" (en partie censuré). Dans ce récit à la première personne, l'auteur "réalise la symbiose du rêve et de la raison" (p. 40). Il a trouvé la formule qui le conduira aux ##Filles du feu##, à ##Aurélia##
