The poetics of space by Gaston Bachelard( Book )

21 editions published between 1964 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A beloved multidisciplinary treatise comes to Penguin Classics Rare is the work of philosophy that invites both the casual reader and the academic. Rare, too, is the text so universal that luminaries across an array of fields lay claim to it. Yet, that is precisely the case with Gaston Bachelard's The Poetics of Space. A rumination on the spaces we inhabit and the dreams and memories that fill them, this seminal work continues to be studied and enjoyed by philosophers, architects, writers, and literary theorists alike. This new edition features a foreword by Mark Z. Danielewski, whose bestselling novel House of Leaves drew inspiration from Bachelard's writings, and an introduction by internationally renowned philosopher Richard Kearney who explains the book's enduring importance and its role within Bachelard's remarkable career
Do you hear them? A novel by Nathalie Sarraute( Book )

3 editions published between 1975 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The setting of Nathalie Sarraute's Do You Hear Them? is a dinner conversation between a father and his old friend about a recently acquired pre-Columbian statue. As they discuss the merits of the piece and art in general, the father hears his children upstairs, giggling. This mirth is barbaric and devastating to the father, for in their laughter he hears them mocking his "old fashioned" viewpoint and the energy he wastes on collecting lifeless objects. In his mind, they have no respect for what has been of greatest importance to him in his life."--Jacket
Martereau, roman by Nathalie Sarraute( Book )

2 editions published between 1959 and 2004 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nathalie Sarraute's second novel explores a young man's obsessions with the hypocrisies and pretensions of the adult world. He becomes interested in Martereau, his uncle's devoted friend and business associate who seems like a trustworthy, benign, self-sufficient man until his possibly ulterior motives are partially exposed by his suspect behavior concerning a shady real-estate deal.--[book cover]
Le planétarium, roman by Nathalie Sarraute( Book )

4 editions published between 1961 and 2005 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The many narratives of The Planetarium, told from various points of view, revolve around a seemingly simple conceit: a young man has his heart and ambition set on his aunt's large apartment. But, as in Sarraute's other books, this plot forms only the surface of what is really happening. Instead, Sarraute focuses on the emotional lives and internal thoughts of her characters in a way that goes beyond what Virginia Woolf did years before. The spite the young man feels toward his mother-in-law for offering him and his wife cheap chairs for their apartment; the terror inspired during a confrontation between the same young man and his aunt; and the need for approval he feels when he's around his Gertrude Stein-like literary icon are some of the many internal conflicts that move the narrative forward through the minds of the conflicted and clashing characters. Always deeply engaging, The Planetarium uses a simple plot to reveal the disparity between the way we see ourselves and the way others see us."--Publisher's website

Portrait d'un inconnu, roman by Nathalie Sarraute( Book )

7 editions published between 1958 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this major work of avant-garde literature, first published by Braziller in 1958, Nathalie Sarraute probes deeply into the nature of human relationships through her depiction of an elderly father and his spinster daughter. In his preface to Portrait of a Man Unknown, Jean-Paul Sartre applauded Sarraute for writing an "anti-novel," one that resists the traditional premises of plot and character. The narrator, a neurotic neighbor obsessed with the pair, shows the persistence of a sleuth, taking every opportunity to snoop and eavesdrop. He follows the couple's every step, awaiting the final explosion: the ultimate confrontation between the two characters over money necessary for the daughter's medical needs. --Amazon.com
