The death of Virgil by Hermann Broch( Book )

It is the reign of the Emperor Augustus, and Publius Vergilius Maro, the poet of the Aeneid and Caesar's enchanter, has been summoned to the palace, where he will shortly die. Out of the last hours of Virgil's life and the final stirrings of his consciousness, the Austrian writer Hermann Broch fashioned one of the great works of twentieth-century modernism, a book that embraces an entire world and renders it with an immediacy that is at once sensual and profound. Begun while Broch was imprisoned in a German concentration camp, The Death of Virgil is part historical novel and part prose poem -- and always an intensely musical and immensely evocative meditation on the relation between life and death, the ancient and the modern

The unknown quantity : a novel by Hermann Broch( Book )

3 editions published in 1968 in French and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mild and sensitive Richard Hieck endured a quietly difficult childhood in Germany. Raised in humble circumstances, Richard was profoundly influenced by his withdrawn mother and by his father, an enigma whose devotion centered not on his five children but on his mysterious career. From his father, Richard inherited an interest in the night sky, learning to love the constellations and to take comfort in the strength of Orion and the warm radiance of Venus. Richard's shadowy, elusive father also influenced him to pursue studies in mathematics, a field offering Richard the discipline he had craved as a child."

Quelques remarques à propos du kitsch by Hermann Broch( Book )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in French and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Texte d'une conférence que H. Broch prononça aux Etats-Unis en 1950. Il s'agit d'une réflexion sur cette esthétique particulière qui touche aussi bien la littérature, que la musique et l'architecture, et qui privilégie l'effet tape-à-l'oeil. Elle est liée aux bouleversements sociaux et son triomphe correspond à l'apparition d'un nouveau spectateur des oeuvres d'art.--[Memento]
