"It is the fall of 1939, and Lieutenant Grange and his men are living in a chalet above a concrete bunker deep in the Ardennes forest, charged with defending the French-Belgian border against the Germans in a war that seems unreal, distant, and unlikely. Far more immediate is the earthy life of the forest itself and the deep sensations of childhood it recalls from Grange's memory. Ostensibly readying for war, Grange instead spends his time observing the change in seasons, falling in love with a young free-spirited widow named Mona, and contemplating the absurd stasis of his present condition ..."--Back cover
A dark stranger by Julien Gracq( Book )

107 editions published between 1945 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the moment he arrives at an elegant seaside hotel with his lover, Allan unsettles and obsesses the other guests. Elusive, equivocal, beautiful, he lives, gambles, swims and dances with a strange fierceness that they find intoxicating. Soon he even haunts their dreams. One by one, each guest is fatally drawn to Allan. And, as the hazy August heat fades and summer comes to an end, they gravitate towards self-destruction. Rich, lushly poetic, A Dark Stranger is a dreamlike portrayal of lives lived on the edge of the abyss
Reading writing by Julien Gracq( Book )

68 editions published between 1980 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This first English-language edition of En lisant en ecrivant will mark a turning point in the public reception of Julien Gracq. Here he emerges as the ideal critic, a reader who accompanies himself in his reading like a "polite third party." Every reader is a potential writer and every writer is a reader in actuality. Reading Writing is a subjective history of fiction and poetry and a personal meditation on the links between literature and two visual arts: painting and cinema. Gracq's poetics is founded upon the basic acts of reading and writing and on the relationship between the writer and his language."--Publisher's website

Au château d'Argol by Julien Gracq( Book )

103 editions published between 1846 and 2003 in 6 languages and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comme l'a remarqué Gaétan Picon, cet écrivain superbe et hautain assure la tradition "qui va du cycle de la Table ronde au surréalisme en passant par le lyrisme romantique". Plutôt que fantastiques, ses romans sont magiques tant par leur contenu étrange que par leur style appliqué et somptueux. Ce premier récit de 1938 peut servir d'introduction à une oeuvre oáu le fantastique est intellectuel et savamment orchestré. "Version démoniaque de Parsifal", interprète Schneider dans sa "Littérature fantastique en France", p. 364-366

Œuvres complètes by Julien Gracq( Book )

12 editions published between 1989 and 2010 in French and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gracq, un écrivain classique marqué par le surréalisme, est un observateur qui se défie, le plus souvent, de "toute référentialité" (B. Boie). Avec ses huit ouvrages, le premier volume embrasse treize années d'un travail créateur qui aborde le récit, le théâtre, le poème en prose, l'étude, le pamphlet et la conférence. Le tome second rassemble tous les textes de Gracq publiés en volume entre 1958 et 1992. Les appendices proposent un assortiment d'écrits épars ou inédits (préfaces, témoignages, entretiens). Selon le spécialiste H. Haddad, il s'agit de "l'édition des oeuvres prétendument complètes" de l 'auteur des ##Eaux étroites##. [SDM]

Château d'argol by Julien Gracq( Book )

12 editions published between 1938 and 2013 in French and English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chateau d'Argol was written in 1938 and echoes with narrative and descriptive resonance. The gothic setting of a lonely castle in the middle of thick, dense woods, not far from a wild and inaccessible seashore, contrasts with the contemporaneity of the characters who inhabit it: a dissolute, rich and aimless young man who invites his best friend to stay in his newly-acquired chateau. The friend arrives not alone, but with a beautiful woman whose detached amorality disturbs both men."--BOOK JACKET
