Orientales, toutes les créatures de Marguerite Yourcenar le sont à leur manière, subtilement.

"On November 25, 1970, Japan's most renowned postwar novelist, Yukio Mishima, stunned the world by committing ritual suicide. Here, Marguerite Yourcenar, a brilliant reader of Mishima and a scholar with an eye for the cultural roles of fiction, unravels the author's life and politics: his affection for Western culture, his family and his homosexuality, his brilliant writings, and his carefully premeditated career and death."--BOOK JACKET
Alexis by Marguerite Yourcenar( Book )

40 editions published between 1921 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It was with Alexis that, in 1929, Marguerite Yourcenar began her career as a novelist. Few literary debuts in this centry are quite as astonishing; for this profound analysis of a man's homosexuality was written by a young woman of twenty-four. The novel takes the form of a letter from the protagonist, Alexis, to his wife, Monique. His letter declares that he can no longer continue in the marriage, that he must obey the demands of his own sexuality, against which he has struggled in vain, to achieve a freedom without which he cannot live"--Back cover

La Couronne et la Lyre : poèmes traduits du grec by Marguerite Yourcenar( Book )

52 editions published between 1979 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cette anthologie de la poésie grecque couvre une période de dix-huit siècles (du VIIe siècle avant Jésus-Christ au Xe siècle de notre ère), mais elle se concentre sur les douze siècles qui séparent le VIIe siècle avant Jésus-Christ du Ve siècle de notre ère. L'auteur a précisé ses intentions en affirmant que "tout choix de poèmes est d'abord esthétique, et doit l'être". Les poètes grecs étant souvent d'admirables métriciens, elle a choisi de suivre le précepte de Lafosse: "les Vers ne doivent être traduits qu'en Vers". Très belle préface analytique, p. 9-40. Notices informatives (en particulier, qui replacent l'auteur dans son temps) et évaluatives souvent très substantielles. Un livre superbe, composé pour le plaisir de l'auteur ... et le nôtre
