Read full description of the books Memorias de Adriano:

Marguerite Yourcenar cuenta que una vez encontró, en una carta de Flaubert, esta frase inolvidable: Los dioses no estaban ya, y Cristo no estaba todavía, y de Cicerón a Marco Aurelio hubo un momento único en que el hombre estuvo solo. La autora de estas Memorias de Adriano añade: He pasado una gran parte de mi vida tratando de definir, y luego de describir, a este hombre solo y por otra parte en relación con todo. Alabada por críticos de todo el mundo como una de la obras más singulares, bellas y hondas de la literatura del siglo XX, estas Memorias atraen constantemente nuevos lectores, interesados en el emperador del siglo II, casi un sabio, que fue a la vez uno de los últimos espíritus libres de la Antigüedad.

Read information about the author

Ebook Memorias de Adriano read Online! The 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.
