Reconstitution célèbre par ses descriptions et baignée de cette "magie de l'histoire" dont parle Huxley, qui nous plonge dans les temps lointains de cette Carthage du 3e siècle avant J.-C. et nous fait vivre avec des personnages qui sont plus historiques que nature grâce à l'habileté artistique patiente du grand écrivain français. Malgré des aspects décoratifs trop évidents, le roman supporte très bien la lecture et demeure l'une des grandes résurrections de l'Antiquité. Publié en 1863. Edition abrégée et illustrée. [SDM]

The Flowers of Evil, which T.S. Eliot called the greatest example of modern poetry in any language, shocked the literary world of nineteenth century France with its outspoken portrayal of lesbian love, its linking sexuality and death, its unremitting irony, and its unflinching celebration of the seamy side of urban life. The volume was seized by the police, and Baudelaire and his published were put on trial for offence to public decency. Six offending poems were banned, ina conviction that was not overturned until 1949. This bold new translation, which restores the banned poems to their origin

"a northern romance, in which the youthful writer has turned to great account the savage wilds, gloomy lakes, stormy seas, pathless caves, and ruined fortresses of Scandinavia. A savage being, and as savage as the scenery around him, - human in his birth, but more akin to the brute in his nature; diminutive, but with a giant's strength; whose hobby is assassination, who lives literally as well as metaphorically on blood, - is the hero; and around this monster are grouped some of the strangest, ghastliest, and yet not wholly unnatural beings which it is possible for the imagination to conceive"--Google Books

Georges-Antoine Rochegrosse : les fastes de la décadence by Georges Rochegrosse( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Georges-Antoine Rochegrosse (1859-1938) fut l'un des peintres d'histoire les plus célèbres de la Troisième République. Il s'impose sur la scène artistique au début des années 1880 en signant une peinture spectaculaire, aussi violente que sanglante et d'un naturalisme cru. S'attachant à la représentation d'époques historiques que les hommes du XIXe siècle considéraient comme décadentes, ce fastueux metteur en scène, soucieux du document archéologique et amoureux de la couleur, signe une peinture "à sensation", qui a laissé son empreinte sur le théâtre et le cinéma naissant. Il se consacre également à l'illustration de nombreux chefs-d'oeuvre de la littérature française, de Victor Hugo à Gustave Flaubert. Artiste attachant et d'une grande fantaisie, Rochegrosse se montre sensible aux grands courants de la fin du XIXe siècle, de l'orientalisme au japonisme en passant par le wagnérisme et le Symbolisme. Salué par la critique et apprécié du grand public, il bénéficie de son vivant d'une reconnaissance internationale. "À vingt-quatre ans il était connu ; à trente-deux célèbre ; il est maintenant illustre" constate son ami Claude Couturier en 1909"--Page 4 of cover
