Sylvie by Gérard de Nerval( Book )
166 editions published between 1877 and 2013 in 13 languages and held by 912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Wanting to leave Adrienne, a beautiful Parisian actress, and with it the illusory world of the theater, the narrator turns to Sylvie, a country girl he once loved. But the dream gives way to disenchantment: the return to nature, the child a myth, and the great love of his youth proves to be disappointing. If these two women were one, would they be "two halves of one love"? The story progresses like the crossing of a memory: the author depicts personal memories ("half-dreamed") and literary. With this new fire, Nerval says goodbye to chimeras of youth and an ideal love"--cataloger's translation

Edition critique d'un texte dont la version définitive date de 1851. Il s'agit, comme l'écrit le préfacier Michel Jeanneret, d'un "aimable récit de voyage" d'une "enfilade d'anecdotes plaisantes", jalonnée d'un "discours de la folie" (en partie censuré). Dans ce récit à la première personne, l'auteur "réalise la symbiose du rêve et de la raison" (p. 40). Il a trouvé la formule qui le conduira aux ##Filles du feu##, à ##Aurélia##

Selected writings by Gérard de Nerval( Book )
13 editions published between 1957 and 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Gerard de Nerval (1808-1855), a contemporary of Poe, De Quincey, Gogol and Heine, introduced into French literature a mode of writing rooted in German romanticism yet already recognizably modernist in its explorations of the uncertain borderlines between dream and reality, irony and madness, autobiography and fiction." "This selection of writings - the first such comprehensive gathering to appear in English - provides an overview of Nerval's work as a poet, belletrist, short-story writer and autobiographer. In addition to 'Aurelia', the memoir of his madness, 'Sylvie' (considered a 'masterpiece' by Proust), and the hermetic sonnets of 'The Chimeras', this volume includes Nerval's Doppelganger tales and experimental fictions. Selections from his correspondence demonstrate a lucid awareness of the strategies by which nineteenth-century psychiatry consigned his visionary imagination to the purgatory of mental illness."--Jacket
