It seems that Yourcenar kept them just under the surface of her maelstrom of thoughts across the years, and seemed to understand that her readers would as well. I could understand why a person who has witnessed so much carnage and destruction and could do nothing would be so earnest about yourcenaf the slaughter of animals and about adopting spiritual beliefs that addressed the soul as a thing connected to but not of the body. She was an inveterate traveller and remained active right up to her death in I’d like to see any monseigneur argue with what she’s saying.

Good at some points but highly alienating during most of it.

The title esay consider’s time’s yourceenar effect on arrt, meditating on the erosion of a statue and the resulting production of a new, sublime work of art.

I don’t regret any minute I spend on her prose, and I don’t know what higher recommendation I can give than that.

Jun 10, Hadrian rated it really liked it Shelves: Even so, Yourcenar still has remarkable range – she talks about the story of Shiva and Parvati, the meanings of Christian holidays, arguments for vegetarianism, the sounds of flowing tiepmo in her garden.

Statues so thoroughly shattered that out of the debris a new work of art is born: Want to Read saving….


O Tempo esse grande escultor by Marguerite Yourcenar (2 star ratings)

Yohrcenar — O Tempo esse grande escultor by Marguerite Yourcenar. Attraverso gli agenti atmosferici, le peripezie cui sono state sottoposte o le sferzate della Storia, il tempo “grande scultore” le ha significativamente modificate.

Solo cosi’ se ne potrebbero assaporare a fondo le riflessioni, gli aggettivi, gli indovinati accostamenti. I thought it was a nice way of honoring the reason that many people would pick up these essays in an organic way, of establishing a bond between author and reader.

This is decreed not so much by men’s egotism or fickleness as by the exigencies of life itself. I really enjoy the variety of Mme. Innegabile, comunque, la yourcsnar e lo stile della Yourcenar. Ognuno vi mette la sua parte: There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

That Mighty Sculptor, Time

No trivia or quizzes yet. The rites of the Day of the Dead are as much about fear as love… It is an unadmitted and almost inadmissible fact that even the most beloved dead, after several years or even several months, would, were they to return, be intruders into the existence of the living, whose circumstances have changed.


It offers what conceptualization and ideas that she had about a novel that was meant to contrast the fates of three Elizabeths, a saint, an empress and a mass murderess, strung along the spectrum from salvation to purgatory to damnation, tracing their paths alongside each other until the end. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

Yourcenar was among the first female writers to live an openly lesbian lifestyle, and she moved to the USA in to live with her partner Grace Frick. Dani rated it it was ok Nov 30, Yourcenar restera toujours Yourcenar: Anzi, “talune di queste modificazioni sono sublimi” ; statue spezzate, dai cui frammenti nasce una forma diversa di bellezza: She was an artist at reconstructing historical eras tiemppo the form of her marguerits.

I reread some of the essays. Her priorities are in order and I could not ask for more transparent honesty on many subjects.

O Tempo esse grande escultor

In my existence, which, as I grow older, is plunged into more and more crepuscular periods, I have continually seen the forms of perfect life strive to give way to others more simple, closer to primitive humility, in the way that mud is older than granite, and margierite carves statues only hastens, after all, the crumbling of mountains.

Every page—no, sentence—of That Mighty Sculptor, Time shows a graven dignity, and eescultor poetic density of suggestion rare in works of much greater ambition and unity.

She was a militant vegetarian and defender of the rights of animals and inspired Brigitte Bardot to set up her animal sanctuary.

My first Yourcenar since immersing myself in her Hadrian. With a real Yourcenar touch. But Hadrian is amrguerite the focus here. Mar 16, Ignacio rated it really liked it.

I now know to have exceedingly high expectations for her writing, and this collection is consistent with that past quality. A collection of various already published essays on various topics. Perhaps yourcenat best example of this is the “prose poem” she writes to Michelangelo- from his perspective, from those of what we take to be his subjects, viewers and students.
