Othello by Oliver Parker( Visual )

9 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and German and held by 1,600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Venice during 1570, Desdemona, daughter of a powerful nobleman, elopes with Othello, a proud Moor celebrated as the city's most awesome warrior. Iago, who has served alongside Othello for a decade, is angered when the general chooses another lieutenant, Cassio, as his second in command. In retribution, Iago sabotages Cassio's promotion and convinces Othello that the handsome officer is cuckolding him. Othello writhes under the tortures Iago has created, and in a fit of jealousy smothers Desdemona, who caresses her beloved husband as she dies. Unfortunately, as adapted by director Parker, this is Shakespeare Lite, a primer for those who refuse to wrap themselves in his poetry, but do want to know what happened. The result is a movie that will not give viewers much of an idea of Shakespeare's play, and may inadvertently lead to ideas about interracial love that were not much on Shakespeare's mind. The audience must think, "There, but for the grace of God, go we," or the production has not worked

L'avare by Molière( Recording )

15 editions published between 1959 and 2009 in French and Undetermined and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Harpagon, a rich miser, has a daughter, Elise, whom he wishes to marry to another old man, Anselme, because the latter is willing to take her without a dowry. He himself proposes to marry a young lady, Mariane, hoping to get a dowry with her. But his son Cleante already loves Mariane. Valere, a young man in love with Elise, takes service with Harpagon in the guise of a steward, hoping to further his suit. Cleante, determined to win Mariane from his father, obtains possession of a box containing part of Harpagon's treasure, and the old miser is distraught by its loss. Suspicion is thrown on Valere, who, by an amusing misunderstanding, thinks that he is being charged with designs on Elise, admits his guilt, and pleads the allurement of her 'beaux yeux' ('Les beaux yeux de ma cassette!' exclaims Harpagon). Finally the matter is cleared up. Harpagon surrenders his daughter to Valere, who is discovered to be the lost son of Anselme, and, in consideration of the return of his treasure, consents to his son's marriage with Mariane. But in his last words he stipulates that he is to be put to no expense. In this ... comedy, [the author] showed how avarice not only kills all sense of dignity and paternal affection in the miser himself, but also provokes disrespect and revolt in his children.-The Oxford companion to French Literature

Poésies by Charles Péguy( )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in French and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Péguy entre à l'Ecole normale supérieure où Bergson fut l'un de ses professeurs. Très tôt, ses prises de position déroutent : croyant, il critique l'Eglise catholique, socialiste, il s'oppose au pacifisme et à l'internationalisme de la gauche, et nationaliste, il ne rejoint jamais la classe bourgeoise. En 1900, il crée sa propre revue, Cahiers de la quinzaine qui représente un témoignage inégalé sur la vie intellectuelle de l'époque. Si Charles Péguy s'était éloigné de la religion, la menace allemande lui révèle l'existence d'un 'mal universel' et le rapproche de la foi. En effet, outre ses essais philosophiques, il est l'auteur de deux œuvres consacrées à Jeanne d'Arc (' Jeanne d'Arc' et 'Mystère de la charité de Jeanne d'Arc'), et de poèmes oratoires d'un grand mysticisme, telle 'Eve', vaste fresque poétique en l'honneur des soldats morts au combat. Le poète, un des plus grands, meurt en 1914, la veille de la bataille de la Marne
