But I had not expected Yourcenar to be such a passionate defender of the “true meaning” of Christmas and Easter, such a devotee of the Passion stories.

The inheritance Yourcenar received after the death of her father, yourfenar her to devote herself to traveling and literary pursuits and love affairs on the Paris artistic scene.

It seems that Yourcenar kept them just under the surface of her maelstrom of thoughts across the years, and seemed to understand that her r My first Yourcenar since immersing myself in her Hadrian.

O Tempo esse grande escultor

Published November by Difel first published Il tempo grande scultore Una raccolta di scritti molto eterogenea ,sono 18 yurcenar saggi composti in periodi diversi. With a real Yourcenar touch. She was a militant vegetarian and defender of the rights of animals and inspired Brigitte Bardot to set up her animal sanctuary.
