Madame Bovary: patterns of provincial life by Gustave Flaubert( Book )

88 editions published between 1923 and 1972 in 4 languages and held by 751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One hundred years ago Madame Bovary, by Gustave Flaubert, was first published. It is, therefore, particularly fitting that the new translation by Francis Steegmuller should be published as a part of the centenary celebration. Perhaps no book in the history of the novel has been more enjoyed and praised by critics, fellow craftsmen and general readers of all sorts than this tale of a provincial woman who could not bear the discrepancy between her romantic dreams and the dull routine of her daily life. There is a special poignancy for most of us in the story of Emma Bovary, whose attempt to impose upon her humdrum life the substance of those dreams brought about her own dissolution. Francis Steegmuller is uniquely qualified to translate Falubert’s inimitable prose, the quality of which is almost as inaccessible to translation as is most poetry. Mr. Steegmuller’s Flaubert and Madame Bovary is a contemporary classic, his selection and translation of Flaubert’s letters outstanding, and his critical interpretation of Flaubert among the most acute. He is eminently fitted to provide the centenary translation of Madame Bovary"--Jacket

The temptation of Saint Antony by Gustave Flaubert( Book )

35 editions published between 1875 and 1972 in French and English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A book that deeply influenced young Freud and was the inspiration for many artists, The Temptation of Saint Anthony was Flaubert's lifelong work, thirty years in the making. Based on the story of the third-century saint who lived on an isolated mountaintop in the Egyptian desert, it is a fantastical rendering of one night during which Anthony was besieged by carnal temptations and philosophical doubt." "This Modern Library Paperback Classic reproduces the distinguished Lafcadio Hearn translation, which translator Richard Sieburth calls "a splendid period piece from one of America's premier translators of nineteenth-century French prose. In Lafcadio Hearn's Latinate rendering, Flaubert's experimental drama of the modern consciusness reads as weirdly as its oneiric original.""--Jacket

Les fleurs du mal : the complete text of The flowers of evil by Charles Baudelaire( Book )

27 editions published between 1929 and 1952 in 3 languages and held by 152 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

"Un jeune provincial de dix-huit ans, plein de rêves et plutôt séduisant, vient de faire ses études à Paris. De 1840 au coup d'Etat de 1851, il fait l'apprentissage du monde dans une société en pleine convulsion. Sur son chemin, il rencontre le grand amour et les contingences du plaisir, la Révolution et ses faux apôtres, l'art, la puissance de l'argent et de la bêtise, l'amitié fraternelle et la fatalité des trahisons, sans parvenir à s'engager pour une autre cause que celle de suivre la perte de ses illusions" [source : 4e de couv.]
