Read full description of the books:
La arrebatada y no correspondida pasión que Marguerite Yourcenar sentía por su editor, André Fraigneau, dio pie a este conjunto de narraciones de alto voltaje amoroso y lírico que recrean mitos clásicos para abordar la misteriosa naturaleza del amor. Honesta consigo misma y con el lector, Yourcenar no tiene miedo de sumergirse en la crisis vital provocada por la indiferencia de Fraigneau. De ella extrae valiosas enseñanzas, como la insipidez de la felicidad burguesa frente al éxtasis del enamorado o la aceptación del sufrimiento para poder experimentar sin miedo uno de los sentimientos más universales.

Read information about the authorThe first woman to be elected to The French Academy, the multi talented personality of Marguerite Yourcenar was a novelist, essayist, playwright, short story writer, poet and translator. She was an artist at reconstructing historical eras in the form of her novels. Her novels, dealing with modern issues set in historical eras won her immense fame as a writer.
The inheritance Yourcenar received after the death of his father, allowed her to devote herself to traveling and literary pursuits and love affairs on the Paris artistic scene. She joined a bohemian crowd of artists, moving between Paris, Lausanne, Athens, Istanbul, Brussels and the Greek islands, which inspired her travel writing "Nouvelles Orientales" and "Feux" based on Greek mythology.
Yourcenar was among the first female writers to live an openly lesbian lifestyle, and she moved to the USA in 1939 to live with her partner Grace Frick. The couple were to remain together until Frick’s death in 1979. She taught French History and History of Art, and continued to write: her novel "Mémoires d’Hadrien" was published in 1951 and enjoyed success with both the critics and the public worldwide.
She was an inveterate traveller and remained active right up to her death in 1987. She was a militant vegetarian and defender of the rights of animals and inspired Brigitte Bardot to set up her animal sanctuary.
