Gravity and grace by Simone Weil( Book )

210 editions published between 1943 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 2,237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gravity and Grace was the first ever publication by the remarkable thinker and activist, Simone Weil. In it Gustave Thibon, the farmer to whom she had entrusted her notebooks before her untimely death, compiled in one remarkable volume a compendium of her writings that have become a source of spiritual guidance and wisdom for countless individuals. On the fiftieth anniversary of the first English edition - by Routledge & Kegan Paul in 1952 - this Routledge Classics edition offers English readers the complete text of this landmark work for the first time ever, by incorporating a specially commissioned translation of the controversial chapter on Israel. Also previously untranslated is Gustave Thibon's postscript of 1990, which reminds us how privileged we are to be able to read a work which offers each reader such 'light for the spirit and nourishment for the soul'. This is a book that no one with a serious interest in the spiritual life can afford to be without

Waiting for God by Simone Weil( Book )

194 editions published between 1950 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 1,145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A la espera de Dios es una compilación póstuma de cartas y ensayos escritos entre enero y junio de 1942. En todos ellos asombra la actitud atenta y expectante de Simone Weil así como también asombra el poder observarla en el umbral del catolicismo, sin cruzarlo. En la primera parte de la obra hay una selección de cartas enviadas a J.M. Perrin, un sacerdote próximo a Simone Weil. En ellas es impresionante leer la exigencia de Verdad que la filósofa reclama, además de darse cuenta de la claridad con la que se abre y entiende el catolicismo. Seguidamente, una vez el lector está completamente anonadado y atrapado en la transparencia mística de Weil, hay una serie de ensayos dignos de los grandes místicos españoles como San Juan de la Cruz o Santa Teresa de Jesús. Además de demostrar una gran comprensión del catolicismo, también deja entrever su pasión por los clásicos griegos y por el conocimiento de otras civilizaciones mediterráneas como las de Canaan. Finalmente, cabe destacar un comentario y una explicación, poco conocidos, del Padre Nuestro que obligarán a entender la oración como "la orientación hacia Dios de toda la atención de que el alma es capaz", es decir, como hecha sólo de atención

The Iliad; or, The poem of force by Simone Weil( Book )

41 editions published between 1945 and 2014 in English and French and held by 900 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bespaloff's account of the Iliad brings out Homer's novelistic approach to character and the existential drama of his characters' choices; it is marked, too, by a tragic awareness of how the Iliad speaks to times and places where there is no hope apart from war. This edition brings together these two influential essays for the first time."--Jacket

The need for roots by Simone Weil( Book )

45 editions published between 1949 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hailed by Andre Gide as the patron saint of all outsiders, Simone Well's short life was ample testimony to her beliefs. In 1943, the final year of her life, unable to join the resistance movement in France, she worked in London for the Free French government in exile. Here she was commissioned to outline a plan for the renewal of Europe after the scourge of Nazism. The Need for Roots was the direct result. In it she seized the opportunity to denounce the false values of contemporary civilization. In the cult of materialism she witnessed a devastating loss of spirit and consequently of human values. To counteract this she sets out a radical vision for spiritual and political renewal with a passion for truth which sweeps through these pages. The book has become a lasting spiritual testament for our age, where we are confronted, as T.S. Eliot comments, by a genius akin to that of the saints." --Book Jacket
