Mysterious Mozart by Philippe Sollers( Book )

23 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both a beguiling portrait of the artist and an idiosyncratic self-portrait of the author, Mysterious Mozart is Philippe Sollers's alternately oblique and searingly direct interpretation of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's oeuvre and lasting mystique, audaciously reformulated for the postmodern age. With a mix of slang, abstractions, quotations, first- and third-person narratives, and blunt opinion, French writer and critic Philippe Sollers taps into Mozart's playful correspondence and the lesser-known pieces of his enormous repertoire to analyze the popularity and public perceptions of his music. Detailing Mozart's drive to continue producing masterpieces even when saddled with debt and riddled with illness and anxiety, Sollers powerfully and meticulously analyzes Mozart's seven last great operas using a psychoanalytical approach to the characters' relationships. As Sollers explores themes of constancy, prodigy, freedom, and religion, he offers up bits of his own history revealing his affinity for the creative geniuses of the eighteenth century and a yearning to bring that era's utopian freedom to life in contemporary times. What emerges is an inimitable portrait of a man and a musician whose greatest gift is a quirky companionability, a warm and mysterious appeal that distinguishes Mozart from other great composers and is brilliantly echoed by Sollers's artful tangle of narrative
Drame; roman by Philippe Sollers( Book )

38 editions published between 1965 and 1990 in 5 languages and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A superbly translated coupling of Sollers's Drame (1965) and Barthes's contemporary commentary. In this early piece, Sollers, subsequently a bestselling author because of his smug Don Juan persona, discreetly keeps watch over his fictionalizing self as it moves from nonverbal impressions to verbalized thoughts. He wants to escape the limitations imposed by language ("a trap that works . . . when I think I am the most free"). Inevitably failing, he delivers an open narrative in which "I," "he," and "you" interact by association. Barthes's approving essay, containing Sollers's footnotes, translates this doomed narrative quest into critical discourse, thereby assuring readers that they have indeed understood Sollers.

18 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in French and English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Du vrac en phase avec l'époque" (J.P. Enthoven). Robert Lévesque a bien vu que ce "magistral roman d'idées", "confession d'un agent du siècle" (un agent secret qui avait prévu l'attentat contre Jean-Paul II) est écrit dans l'esprit de Diderot et qu'il aborde les grands événements, questions et énigmes de cette fin de siècle: effondrement du communisme, trafic d'organes, manipulations génétiques, mafia, narco-trafic, etc. Sollers poursuit son obsession: "écrire l'envers de l'histoire contemporaine" (P.S.)
Casanova l'admirable by Philippe Sollers( Book )

26 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

His is a name synonymous with seduction. His was a life lived without limits. Giacomo Casanova left behind thousands of pages detailing his years among Europe's notable and noble. In Casanova the Irresistible, Philippe Sollers - intellectual and revered visionary of the French avant-garde - proffers a lively reading of and guide to the famed libertine's sprawling memoir. Armine Kotin Mortimer's translation of Soller's reading tracks the alluring Venetian through the whole of his astounding and disreputable life. Eschewing myth, Sollers dares to present the plain realities of a man "simple, direct, courageous, cultivated, seductive, funny. A philosopher in action." The lovers are here, and the ruses and adventures. But Sollers also rescues Casanova the writer, a gifted composer of words who reigns as a titan of eighteenth-century literature. As always, Sollers seeks to shame society for its failure to recognize its failings. By admiring those of Casanova's admirable qualities present in himself, Sollers spurns bourgeois hypocrisy and cliché to affirm a jocund philosophy of life devoted to the twinned pursuits of pleasure and joy. -- from dust jacket

La guerre du goût by Philippe Sollers( Book )

25 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'auteur rassemble des essais critiques afin de "constituer une véritable histoire, vivante et verticale, de l'art et de la littérature" (P. S.). Les textes les plus longs portent sur Rodin, De Kooning, Genet, Céline, Morand, Madame de Sévigné, Fragonard. Puis Sollers propose "le récit composé" que forme la suite des portraits (une centaine) publiés dans ##Le Monde##: Sade, Proust, Mozart, Pound, Borges, Warhol, Voltaire, etc. En rassemblant des écrits de circonstance, l'auteur a réussi le tour de force de constituer un "vivant traité de littérature" (J. Drillon)
L'intermédiaire by Philippe Sollers( Book )

30 editions published between 1963 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce recueil explore cette région symbolique qui permet de grouper, autour d'un seul acte de rêverie et de réflexion, les prises de vue en apparence les plus éloignées : un tableau de Monet, une péripétie dramatique ... C'est une prose à la fois transversale et déliée qui oblige par nature à recourir, selon le mot de Henry James, à "la splendeur de l'indirect."
