Carmen (Paperback, New edition): Prosper Merimee Carmen (Paperback, New edition)
Prosper Merimee; Translated by Andrew Brown; Foreword by Philip Pullman
R316 Discovery Miles 3 160 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

"Carmen"--the inspiration for one of the world's most popular operas--is a story about the dark forces that lurk beneath the facade of civilization, where passions are brutal and erotic love is seductive and sinister. When Don Jose meets a gypsy woman, he has no idea that his chance encounter with the "pretty witch" will have disastrous consequences. With her magic and her malevolent spirit, Carmen exerts a powerful charm on the unsuspecting Don Jose, who is drawn into a seedy underworld of bandits and smugglers--exploited and humiliated, until he is driven to the ultimate revenge. In "Carmen," Prosper Merimee introduced a literary archetype: the femme fatale, who uses her sexuality and mystery to ensnare and ultimately destroy the weak, unsuspecting man. It appears here with "The Venus of Ille," a brilliant tale of the supernatural. Prosper Merimee is a noted French novelist, playwright, and short story writer.

When the young and sensitive Auguste Saint-Clair notices an Etruscan vase on the mantelpiece of his beloved Mathilde, he becomes gradually consumed by jealousy at the thought that it could be the gift of another man, and the situation escalates dramatically as he demands proof from her that she loves only him. A classic piece of French short fiction, 'The Etruscan Vase' is here presented alongside three other stories: 'The Vision of Charles XI', a dark tale of premonition set in the Swedish royal palace, 'Tamango', an account of a slave-ship revolt, and 'The Blue Room', a supernatural farce and one of Merimee's final works; as well as two non-fiction pieces: 'A Hanging', a description of a real-life public execution, and 'H.B.', a tribute to Stendhal.
