Temptation of Saint Anthony

E-Book ( EPUB mit Adobe DRM )
In Ihrem Land nicht verfügbar


A book that deeply influenced the young Freud and was the inspiration for many artists, The Temptation of Saint Anthony was Flauberts lifelong work, thirty years in the making. Based on the story of the third-century saint who lived on an isolated mountaintop in the Egyptian desert, it is a fantastical rendering of one night during which Anthony is besieged by carnal temptations and philosophical doubt. This Modern Library Paperback Classic reproduces the distinguished Lafcadio Hearn translation, which translator Richard Sieburth calls a splendid period piece from one of Americas premier translators of nineteenth-century French prose. In Lafcadio Hearns Latinate rendering, Flauberts experimental drama of the modern consciousness reads as weirdly as its oneiric original.
