Read full description of the books:



Anna, soror... fut ecrit en quelques semaines du printemps 1925, au cours d'un séjour à Naples et immediatement au retour de celui-ci [...] Jamais invention romanesque ne fut plus immédiatement inspirée par les lieux où on la plaçait.
J'ai goûte pour la premiere fois avec Anna, soror... le suprême privilège du romancier, celui de se perdre tout entier dans ses personnages, ou de se laisser posseder par eux. Durant ces quelques semaines, et tout en continuant à faire les gestes et à assumer les rapports habituels de l'existence, j'ai vecu sans cesse à l'interieur de ces deux corps et de ces deux âmes, me glissant d'Anna en Miguel et de Miguel en Anna, avec cette différence au sexe qui est, je crois, celle de tous les createurs en presence de leurs creatures.
--Marguerite Yourcenar

Read information about the author

Ebook Anna, soror... 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.
