"We think of Honore Balzac as the author of long and fully upholstered novels, stitched together into the magnificent visionary document called The Human Comedy. Yet along with the full-length fiction within The Human Comedy stand many shorter works, and it's here that we get some of his most daring explorations of crime, sexuality, and artistic creation. As Marcel Proust noted, it is in these tales that we detect, under the surface, the mysterious circulation of blood and desire. All are newly translated by three outstanding translators who restore the freshness of Balzac's vivid and highly colored prose"--

This translation of the French Femme au dix-huiti me si cle from 1862, first published in English in 1928, traces the life of the Eighteenth Century woman in an historical account. Through discussion of evidence from paintings and memoirs, the book draws an intimate lifelike account of what lay behind these images for women in France of this time. The Goncourt brothers wrote several social histories but were also art critics and novelists. Here they offer portraits of upper, middle and working class women in France. This is one of the earliest accounts

The flowers of evil by Charles Baudelaire( Book )

3 editions published in 1958 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The poetic masterpiece of the great nineteenth-century writer Charles Baudelaire, The Flowers of Evil is one of the most frequently read and studied works in the French language. In this compelling new translation of Baudelaire's most famous collection, Keith Waldrop recasts the poet's original French alexandrines and other poetic arrangements into versets, a form that hovers between poetry and prose. Maintaining Baudelaire's complex view of sound and structure, Waldrop's translation mirrors the intricacy of the original without attempting to replicate its inimitable verse. The result is a powerful new re-imagining, one that is, almost paradoxically, closer to Baudelaire's own poetry than any previous English translation. Including the six poems banned from the first edition, this Flowers of Evil preserves the complexity, eloquence, and dark humor of its author. Brought here to new life, it is hypnotic, frank, and forceful."--Publisher's website
Colline by Jean Giono( Book )

4 editions published in 1929 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Deep in Provence, a century ago, four stone houses perch on a hillside. Wildness presses in from all sides. Beyond a patchwork of fields, a mass of green threatens to overwhelm the village. The animal world--a miming cat, a malevolent boar--displays a mind of its own. The four houses have a dozen residents--and then there is Gagou, a mute drifter. Janet, the eldest of the men, is bedridden; he feels snakes writhing in his fingers and speaks in tongues. Even so, all is well until the village fountain suddenly stops running. From this point on, humans and the natural world are locked in a life-and-death struggle. All the elements--fire, water, earth, and air--come into play. From an early age, Jean Giono roamed the hills of his native Provence. He absorbed oral traditions and, at the same time, devoured the Greek and Roman classics. Giono's startlingly original fusion of idiomatic storytelling and Homeric and Virgilian myth took Paris and New York by storm in 1929. Hill, his first novel and the first winner of the Prix Brentano, comes fully back to life in Paul Eprile's poetic translation"--

2 editions published in 1937 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lʹhistoire débute dans un café, ce qui donne la tonalité générale du roman. Une discussion dégénère en pari quand un groupe de copains met en doute la capacité annoncée dʹun litre, des pichets de vins servis par le patron. Chacun dans le troquet propose sa méthode, plus ou moins farfelue, pour vérifier les faits. Après cette mise en bouche, nous retrouvons nos copains, sept joyeux drilles, tellement contrariés par une carte de géographie où deux villes semblent les regarder avec des yeux malfaisants quʹils décident dʹaller y mettre un chambard monstre, et les voilà partis pour Ambert et Issoire dans le Puy-de-Dôme afin dʹy assouvir leur terrible vengeance. Mais auparavant ils iront consulter le somnambule, un devin qui communique avec les esprits en prenant un bain de pieds dans une cuvette pleine de vin !
