Galilée est un symbole de la pensée scientifique. L. Geymonat recrée le climat intellectuel de l'Italie du XVIIe siècle et montre la complexité du personnage, un savant persuadé de ne pas avoir de preuve absolue d'une vérité scientifique, un vieil homme accablé par l'échec de son programme culturel tout en assistant au triomphe de ses idées scientifiques

The book of imaginary beings by Jorge Luis Borges( Book )

4 editions published between 1987 and 2004 in French and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book of imaginary beings is Borges's whimsical compendium of more than a hundred of "the strange creatures conceived down through history by the human imagination." Imbued with Borges's characteristic wit and erudition, this unique contribution to fantasy literature ranges widely across the world's mythologies and literatures to bring together in one delightful encyclopedia the fantastical inventions drawn from the Kabbalah, Homer, Pliny, Confucius, Shakespeare, Lewis Carroll, and C.S. Lewis, among others. Here readers will find the familiar and expected Dragons and Centaurs, Unicorns and Gnomes, as well as the less familiar and altogether unexpected Animals That Live in the Mirror, The Elephant That Prefigured the Birth of Buddha, the Hairy Beast of La Ferte-Bernard, and other undeniably curious creatures. Throughout, Borges's cunning and humorous commentary is sheer delight." "For this new illustrated edition of The Book of Imaginary Beings, Viking has paired Andrew Hurley, the acclaimed translator of Borges's Collected Fictions, with award-winning illustrator Peter Sis, whose original drawings appear throughout the book. The result is a wonderful work - an Alice-Through-the-Looking-Glass menagerie, which should appeal to fantasy fans of all stripes and ages."--Jacket

Asleep in the sun by Adolfo Bioy Casares( Book )

4 editions published between 1974 and 1992 in French and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bordenave, employé de banque congédié à la suite d'une grève malencontreuse, est devenu horloger. Il mène une existence paisible dans sa maison du quartier populaire de Buenos aires. Soudain, et pour des raisons inconnues, sa femme Diana est enfermée dans une clinique psychiatrique. Dès lors, la vie de l'horloger, faite de conventions, va être bouleversée par une série de péripéties bizarres et inquiétantes, entre autres l'intervention de sa belle-soeur, des entretiens avec le fascinant Reger Samaniego, directeur de la clinique, et l'apparition d'une chienne qui curieusement s'appelle Diana comme sa femme. Enfin, le comportement de la vraie Diana, sortie de clinique, lui fait prendre conscience, petit à petit, qu'autour de lui se produisent d'étrangers transferts et des mutations d'âmes et de corps ... Dormir au soleil s'inscrit dans le cadre de ces imaginations pour ainsi dire " frontalières ", à cheval sur le rêve et la réalité, dont cet auteur a construit un royaume très singulier et qui lui ont valu d'être, avec Borges, l'écrivain le plus marquant de la littérature sud-américaine d'aujourd'hui
