An Iceland fisherman by Pierre Loti( Book )

11 editions published between 1935 and 1965 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Features a cast of Breton seafarers...but the most powerful aspect of the novel is the sea itself, the changing moods of the sea-becalmed and mysterious, stormy and destructive-dominate the lives of the simple fishermen who earn their living in Europe's northern waters. The sea becomes in this way the symbol of man's dependence on and struggle against nature, which is at once bountiful and all consuming.--from: "Pierre Loti," in Dictionary of Literary Biography, Volume 123: Nineteenth-Century French Fiction Writers: Naturalism and Beyond, 1860-1900. A Bruccoli Clark Layman Book. Edited by Catharine Savage Brosman, Tulane University. The Gale Group, 1992, pp. 158-172

Ramuntcho by Pierre Loti( Book )

3 editions published between 1923 and 1929 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A love idyll in the setting of the Pyrenees, in the country of the Basques, that ancient and dwindling race which preserves so passionately its native pride, its old piety, and its disdain for things new and strange. The story of Ramuntcho's wooing of the golden-haired daughter of the enemy, and the misfortune that overtook it, is beautifully told, and the descriptions of the local scenery in the different seasons of the year, of the religious festivals, of the great contests in the national game, of the smuggling enterprises are marked by inimitable skill. --Amazon.com
