Les enchanteresses by Jean Starobinski( Book )

10 editions published in 2005 in French and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En s'alliant à la musique, en faisant appel aux fables anciennes et aux conventions du théâtre, la poésie a inventé un nouvel espace de fiction : l'opéra. Toutes les figures du désir et de l'égarement passionnel peuvent y être jouées et déjouées. Toutes les autorités aussi peuvent y être mises en péril. Les enchanteresses tiennent sous leur domination les héros qu'elles ont dévoyés. Mais leur triomphe ne dure pas. Elles sont les incarnations de l'art qui multiplie les plaisirs et qui sait aussi combien sa souveraineté est précaire. L'air d'opéra, qui soulève tant de passions, apparaît bien comme le lieu des transferts du sacré à l'expérience la plus intime de soi, parfois aussi aux appartenances nationales. Or à la sacralisation de l'art correspond en retour une esthétisation du religieux, phénomène complexe qui ne cesse de se manifester sous nos yeux, avec des conséquences parfois inquiétantes. Les lecteurs sentiront que les enjeux esthétiques évoqués dans ce livre intéressent de près l'évolution des sociétés modernes " avancées "

5 editions published in 2006 in Italian and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Idomeneo was the twenty-five-year-old composer's first mature maaterpiece. Based on a tale in Homer's Odyssey, the island of Crete is the setting for a drama of young love thwarted, jealous rivalry and a timely deus ex machina to see all ends as it should. To this traditional opera seria Mozart brings prodigally inventive and hightly dramatic music."--Conteneur
Ritter, Dene, Voss by Thomas Bernhard( Visual )

2 editions published between 1987 and 2008 in German and Undetermined and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ritter, Dene, Voss involves the Worringer sisters--both Viennese actresses--preparing for their brother's return from the Steinhof mental institution in Vienna, where he has been a patient for some time. Dene is the driving force behind an attempt at reintegrating him into family life while Ritter remains skeptical. When Voss, a tormented genius (loosely based on last century's great, idiosyncratic philosopher, Ludwig Wittgenstein), finally appears, it becomes clear that he never planned to stay for good. The play takes place before, during, and after lunch, unfolding through caustic dialogue in this 'misanthropic comedy.'"
