The woman and the puppet = (La femme et le pantin) by Pierre Louÿs( Book )

168 editions published between 1896 and 2019 in 9 languages and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Woman and The Puppet - which drew some of its inspiration from Bizet's Carmen, as well as a particular episode in Casanova's Memoirs - is a precise account of obsessive love, a distillation of decadent themes that holds good from one fin-de-siecle to another, a cautionary tale whose title acknowledges that for a woman to be fatale requires the complicity of a male puppet." "The novel opens during the boisterous Seville Carnival of 1896 during which Andre Stevenol, an amorously-inclined young Frenchman, succeeds in attracting the attention of the alluring Concha Perez. A rendezvous is arranged, but before it can take place Andre meets Don Mateo, who, in a long monologue recounts his affair with Concha and seeks to dissuade the younger man from becoming embroiled with the 'worst of women', who has teased, ridiculed and humiliated him. The warning like most warnings had little effect."--BOOK JACKET

The adventures of King Pausole by Pierre Louÿs( Book )

95 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The code of government of the legendary (Anatole France's) mythic King Pausole prescribed but two laws for his subjects: the first being, Hurt no man, and the second, Then do as you please. Pierre Louÿs, pseudonym of Pierre Louis (1870-1925), was a French novelist and poet who expressed pagan sensuality with stylistic perfection. Louÿs frequented Parnassian and Symbolist circles and was a friend of the composer Claude Debussy. He founded various literary reviews, notably La Conque in 1891. His 'Chansons de Bilitis' (1894), prose poems about Sapphic love, purporting to be translations from the Greek, deceived even experts. 'Aphrodite' (1896), a novel depicting courtesan life in ancient Alexandria, made him famous and it became the best-selling work by any living French writer (350,000 copies)

The songs of Bilitis by Pierre Louÿs( Book )

25 editions published between 1904 and 2017 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These passionate verses were published in Paris in 1894 as the lost works of a disciple of Sappho. Between their open celebration of lesbian love and the eventual revelation of their true authorship-the verses actually were written by French novelist and poet Pierre Louÿs-they became a succès de scandale. Although debunked as a work of antiquity, The Songs of Bilitis remains a classic of erotic literature. More than 160 sensual illustrations by the famed Hungarian-born American artist Willy Pogány grace the pages of this lovely keepsake edition. Reprinted from a sensitive translation of the original French edition by Alvah C. Bessie, it features extensive annotations. Contains adult material
