Rimbaud le voyou et l'expérience poétique by Benjamin Fondane( Book )

22 editions published between 1979 and 2010 in French and German and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rimbaud le voyou fut du vivant de Benjamin Fondane et demeure après sa mort son livre le plus lu. Dans cet essai polémique, il dénonce les tentatives de récupération du poète des "Illuminations" tant par les surréalistes que par des écrivains catholiques. Pour lui, si Rimbaud atteint au mythe, c'est paradoxalement parce que son oeuvre paraît trancher de tout son éclat le noeud gordien qui lie la création artistique à la vie. Conjointement à sa lecture du philosophe Léon Chestov, Fondane dans son essai en sonde la portée éminemment existentielle. La thèse du "voyou" met en tension le "tempérament métaphysique" de Rimbaud, sa soif d'absolu, sa "gourmandise", et la valeur programmatique de la "Lettre du Voyant", qui revient selon Fondane à tricher en s'emparant "de l'Inconnu par un coup de force"
Existential Monday : Philosophical essays by Benjamin Fondane( Book )

10 editions published between 1990 and 2016 in French and English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Benjamin Fondane--who was born and educated in Romania, moved as an adult to Paris, lived for a time in Buenos Aires, where he was close to Victoria Ocampo, Jorge Luis Borges's friend and publisher, and died in Auschwitz--was an artist and thinker who found in every limit, in every border, "a torture and a spur." Poet, critic, man of the theater, movie director, Fondane was the most daring of the existentialists, a metaphysical anarchist, affirming individual against those great abstractions that limit human freedom--the State, History, the Law, the Idea. Existential Monday is the first selection of his philosophical work to appear in English. Here Fondane, until now little-known except to specialists, emerges as one of the great French philosophers of the twentieth century"--
Faux traité d'esthétique : essai sur la crise de réalité by Benjamin Fondane( Book )

25 editions published between 1938 and 1998 in French and German and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Qu'est-ce donc pour nous la poésie - cri, prière, acte magique? Qu'importe! Que celui pour lequel elle est un cri, crie! Qu'il prie, celui pour lequel elle est prière! Et qu'il se fasse sorcier, voyant ou prophète, celui qui y voit un acte magique! Mais avant tout, que lo poète ose! Qu'il descende, des catégories de sa pensée, dans les catégories de sa propre vie

Cinepoems and others by Benjamin Fondane( Book )

3 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Benjamin Fondane was that rarest of poets: an experimental formalist with a powerfully lyric poetic style; a near-surrealist who embraced and produced his own version of existential philosophy; a Romanian poet who wrote in French; a self-consciously Jewish poet of diaspora and loss, whose last manuscripts made it out of Drancy just before his deportation to Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1945, where he was murdered, yet whose poetry speaks of a plenitude, an overflowing. After Fondane's death, the poetry might have been forgotten had not writers like E.M. Cioran kept the memory of the work alive, and in France today, Fondane's poetry is again widely available. This first American collection of Fondane's poetry includes his surrealist "Cine-poems," philosophical meditations, and poems that, in their secular/mystical Judaism, confront the calamity--and imaginative triumph--of European Jewry. Poems included in this collection are translated by Mitch Abidor, Marianne Bailey, E.M. Cioran, Joseph Donahue, Eric Freedman, Henry King, Andrew Rubens, Nathaniel Rudavsky-Brody, and Leonard Schwartz"--
