Most widely held works by René Daumal
Mount Analogue; a novel of symbolically authentic non-Euclidean adventures in mountain climbing by René Daumal ( Book )
29 editions published between 1952 and 2010 in English and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Rene Daumal's Mount Analogue is a twentieth-century classic, combining the author's poetic gifts and philosophical accomplishments. Among other things, this is an allegory for the journey of life, as well as a tale in which the narrator/author, one of an intrepid company of eight, sets sail in the yacht Impossible to search for Mount Analogue, the solid, geographically located, albeit hidden, peak that reaches inexorably towards heaven - as Mount Olympus reached to the home of the Greek gods, or Mount Sinai to the presence of Yahweh. Daumal, one of the greatest French writers of the twentieth century, died before the novel was completed, providing an uncanny one-way quality to the journey."--BOOK JACKET
A night of serious drinking by René Daumal ( Book )
10 editions published between 1979 and 2004 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A Night of Serious Drinking is among Rene Daumal's most important literary works. Like his Mount Analogue, it is a work of symbolic fiction that can be enjoyed purely as an entertaining and imaginative story, but also for the much deeper meaning embedded in its deceptively simple plot: An unnamed narrator spends an evening getting drunk with a group of friends. As the party becomes intoxicated and more and more exuberant, the narrator embarks on a journey ranging from seeming paradises to the depths of pure hell. The fantastic world depicted in A Night of Serious Drinking is actually the ordinary world tumed upside down. The characters are called the Anthographers, Fabricators of Useless Objects, Scienters, Nibblists, Ciarificators, and other absurd titles. Yet the inhabitants of these strange realms are only too familiar; scientists dissecting an animal in their laboratory a wise man surrounded by his devotees, politicians and poets expounding their rhetoric. These characters perform hllarious antics and intellectual games, which they see as serious attempts to find meaning and freedom." "Daumal's keen perceptions about the human condition infuse A Night of Serious Drinking with a critique of culture and consciousness that is both disquieting and enlivening Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
