Karen Blixen's Babettes Gæstebud by Gabriel Axel( Visual )

25 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dos hermanas, envueltas en la nostalgia de una lejana juventud, viven en una digna austeridad hasta que aparece entre ellas Babette, quien llega huyendo del terror de su natal París. Al poco tiempo Babette tendrá oportunidad de corresponder a la bondad y al calor con que fue acogida. Organiza una opulenta cena con los platillos y vinos de la mejor gastronomía. Es tal la fuerza seductora de las viandas que, poco a poco, en un ceremonial intenso y emotivo, los invitados ceden a la sensualidad que implica gozar de los prodigios de la cocina. La cena termina en medio de una contenida pero muy profunda alegría, despertando el calor humano que todos llevaban soterrado. Se da el milagro de hacer brotar la bondad humana a través del goce de los sentidos
Out of Africa by Isak Dinesen( Book )

58 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in English and Chinese and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author of Seven Gothic Tales gives a true account of her life on her plantation in Kenya. She tells with classic simplicity of the ways of the country and the natives: of the beauty of the Ngong Hills and coffee trees in blossom: of her guests, from the Prince of Wales to Knudsen, the old charcoal burner, who visited her: of primitive festivals: of big game that were her near neighbors -- lions, rhinos, elephants, zebras, buffaloes -- and of Lulu, the little gazelle who came to live with her, unbelievably ladylike and beautiful
Sept contes gothiques by Karen Blixen( Book )

146 editions published between 1934 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Empruntant un masque masculin, la baronne Blixen avait d'abord publié les Sept Contes gothiques sous le nom d'Isak Dinesen en 1935. Le sortilège ici est d'une nature singulière, animé de personna-ges réalistes sur fond d'aventures vécues, mais où le naturel confine au délire, où le fantastique chevauche le réel, franchissant avec désinvolture des limites qui ne sont pas aussi nettes qu'on voudrait nous le faire croire. Après un raz de marée sur la côte danoise, une vieille demoiselle noble qui s'invente un passé de courtisane, un valet de chambre assassin déguisé en cardinal capable de faire des miracles, une jeune femme fugueuse et un garçon mélancolique se réfugient dans un grenier en attendant la mort ou une barque libératrice. Dans une autre histoire, deux sœurs restées vierges par amour pour leur bandit de frère dînent avec le fantôme de celui-ci. Contes gothiques, contes romantiques venus du pays d'Hamlet... Avec Karen Blixen, dame errante d'un univers disparu, les vieilles lunes rajeunissent et sont contemplées dans un éternel présent. [payot.ch]
