Servitude et grandeur militaires by Alfred de Vigny( Book )

21 editions published between 1835 and 1997 in French and Undetermined and held by 376 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

As the Countess feels herself about to give birth, the Count wakes from his sleep and goes out to fetch help. Jeanne decides to have Etienne study to be a priest. The Count tells him he may live, but only in an outlying building outside the castle adjoining the shore. He is not to enter the castle. Jeanne is delivered of a second son, Maximilien, who is very much his father's son. Just as Etienne is being trained in the ways of knowledge, Maximilien, called the Marquis de Saint-Sever, is trained to become a warrior without any of the graces. Neither child knows of the other's existence

Stello; a session with Doctor Noir by Alfred de Vigny( Book )

6 editions published in 1970 in French and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La Première Consultation du Docteur-Noir. Stello ou les Diables-bleus (Blue Devils) raconte, par une nuit "sinistre" de 1832, le dialogue entre un médecin et un poète qu'une "crise de tristesse et d'affliction" pousse à s'engager en politique. Homéopathiquement, le Docteur-Noir invoque la mort de trois poètes au XVIIIe siècle : Gilbert meurt de misère sous Louis XV ; Chatterton se suicide sous George III ; André Chénier est guillotiné le 8 Thermidor. Ces récits historiques sur la place du poète dans la cité, pensée à partir d'une corrélation entre génie et folie, fondent le type du penseur solitaire martyr. Ce "livre de désespoir" qui définit la "neutralité armée" du poète est un livre d'engagement : Vigny diagnostique le "désenchantement" d'une génération hantée par "l'indifférence en matière de politique"."--Back cover
