Les ombres errantes by Pascal Quignard( Book )

36 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There are few if any voices more distinct in contemporary French literature than that of Pascal Quignard, a prolific writer of rare erudition and elegance. Essayist, critic, translator, novelist and musician, Quignard attempts here an ambitious amalgam of his many artistic styles in a fragmentary work that defies genre. And his daring was rewarded in 2002 when The Roving Shadows became the first non-novel in more than 60 years to win the Goncourt Prize, France's most prestigious literary award"--T.p. verso

The hatred of music by Pascal Quignard( Book )

31 editions published between 1995 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout Pascal Quignard's distinguished literary career, music has been a recurring obsession. As a musician he organized the International Festival of Baroque Opera and Theatre at Versailles in the early 1990s, and thus was instrumental in the rediscovery of much forgotten classical music. Yet in 1994 he abruptly renounced all musical activities. The Hatred of Music is Quignard's masterful exploration of the power of music and what history reveals about the dangers it poses. From prehistoric chants to challenging contemporary compositions, Quignard reflects on music of all kinds and eras. He draws on vast cultural knowledge--the Bible, Greek mythology, early modern history, modern philosophy, the Holocaust, and more--to develop ten accessible treatises on music. In each of these small masterpieces the author exposes music's potential to manipulate, to mesmerize, to domesticate. Especially disturbing is his scrutiny of the role music played in the concentration camps of Nazi Germany. Quignard's provocative book takes on particular relevance today, as we find ourselves surrounded by music as never before in history."--Publisher description

The sexual night by Pascal Quignard( Book )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"French writer and critic Pascal Quignard meditates on a remarkable collection of illustrations of sexual imagery. He moves from the annals of global art to ancient and modern, from Bosch and Durer to Rembrandt and Tintoretto, from Caspar David Friedrich and Caravaggio to Bacon and Jean Rustin. The meditations are wonderfully woven together, presenting a reflection on the sexual image that psychoanalysis calls the primal scene - a concept introduced by Freud, as the first sexual scene witnessed by a child; a scene that is unexplained, unforgettable, and ultimately haunting. Throughout the course of twenty-seven chapters that draw on the mythological and artistic resources of Western and Far Eastern culture - including the tragic love of Dido and Aeneas, the scandalous figure of Mary Magdalene; Lascaux and Golgotha; voyeurism and melancholy; Saint Augustine and Freud - the book is a disquisition on vision, temporality, generation, and creation in all its forms. Forty-eight brilliant and sensual color images accompany the text, as Quignard questions the origin of our being and explains the unexplainable"--Publisher's description
