L'île des pingouins by Anatole France( )

2 editions published in 1925 in French and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Entraîné par la malice du Diable, le saint homme Maël aborde une île des mers hyperboréennes où l'a conduit une tempête de trente jours. Trompé, sur le rivage, par sa mauvaise vue, le vieil apôtre baptise des pingouins qu'il prend pour des hommes."--Cover
Bouvard and Pécuchet by Gustave Flaubert( )

2 editions published in 1945 in French and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Considered Gustave Flaubert's masterpiece, Bouvard and Pecuchet opens with two middle-aged copy-clerks who become fast friends after meeting on a city bench and discovering their shared habit of writing their names in their hats: "I should say so! Someone could walk off with mine at the office!" When a small inheritance allows Bouvard and Pecuchet to retire early and move to the country, they use their newfound leisure time to satisfy their curiosity about all the things they'd been too busy to study in the city. Flaubert shows his unlikely protagonists diving disastrously into everything from farming and politics to literature and love, and coming up empty-handed each time - until, finally, their obsessive pursuit of knowledge becomes an end in itself." Bouvard and Pecuchet unravels the novel's realist tradition, and sets the stage for the modernist innovations of Kafka, Joyce, and Beckett. Although Flaubert died before completing it, this new translation contains the fullest and most accurate version of the text, as well as his "Dictionary of Accepted Ideas" and the previously untranslated "Catalogue of Fashionable Ideas."--Publisher

Les scènes de vie de bohème by Henri Murger( )

2 editions published in 1869 in French and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Servitude et grandeur militaires by Alfred de Vigny( )

2 editions published in 1965 in French and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Servitude and Grandeur of Arms consists of reflections, arguments and autobiographical anecdotes surrounding three longer narratives. These include an episode on the high seas with Admiral Collingwood, a glimpse into Marie-Antoinette's court, scenes from the campaign of 1814 against the Russians and the Paris revolution of 1830, and an overheard conversation between Napoleon and the Pope - part of what is probably the most telling and dramatic portrait of the emperor in literature. Yet these are essentially the stories of gruff and grizzled veterans, bound by a stern code of duty and honour, who reveal unexpected depths of humanity. De Vigny vividly conveys the savagery of war, the dreariness, deprivation and discipline of military service, but also its comradeship, stoicism and fundamental uprightness. The result is a strange and subtle masterpiece."--BOOK JACKET
The bird by Jules Michelet( )

2 editions published in 1856 in French and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Renée Mauperin by Edmond de Goncourt( )

2 editions published in 1876 in French and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The masterpiece by Émile Zola( )

2 editions published in 1928 in French and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Masterpiece is the tragic story of Claude Lantier, an ambitious and talented young artist who has come from the provinces to conquer Paris but is conquered instead by the flaws of his own genius. Set in the 1860s and 1870s, it is the most autobiographical of the twenty novels in Zola's Rougon-Macquart series. It provides a unique insight into Zola's career as a writer and his relationship with Cezanne, a friend since their schooldays in Aix-en-Provence. It also presents a well-documented account of the turbulent Bohemian world in which the Impressionists came to prominence despite the conservatism of the Academy and the ridicule of the general public
Restless house by Émile Zola( )

2 editions published in 1964 in French and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Systematically exposing the contradictions that pervade bourgeois life, Zola reveals a multitude of adulteries and betrayals, a veritable 'melting pot' of moral and sexual degeneracy. This new translation captures the robustness of Zola's language and restores the omissions of earlier abridged versions

With a view to financing these schemes the Universal Bank was formed, and by force of advertising became immediately successful. Emboldened by success, Saccard launched into wild speculation

2 editions published in 1930 in French and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En Route continues the story of Durtal, a modern anti-hero; solitary, agonised and alienated. Robbed of religion and plunged into decadence by the pressures of modern life, Durtal discovers a new road to Rome. Art, architecture and music light his way back to God. En Route forms part of a sequence of novels by Huysmans which are in fact barely veiled autobiography. First published in 1895, En Route earned the hostility of the Catholic Church and was condemned for obscenity

Aphrodite, moeurs antiques by Pierre Louÿs( )

1 edition published in 1932 in French and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in Ptolemaic Alexandria, at a much later date than Bilitis, Aphrodite is as much a love story as a crime story. Louys' decadent, sensual vision of Egypt in classical times is a jeweled setting for a story of transgressive love. The sculptor Demetrios, the favorite of Queen Berenice, falls for a well-to-do courtesan, Chrysis. Much of the story is set in the world of the courtesans, a realm of beauty, luxury, sapphic indulgence, and some dark shadows as well
De la religion : considérée dans les rapports avec l'ordre politique et civil by Félicité Robert de Lamennais( )
