    "A ambição é apenas um logro. A sabedoria enganou-se. E o próprio vício mentiu. Não existe nem virtude, nem piedade, nem amor, nem pudor, nem os seus contrários, mas apenas uma concha vazia dançando no alto de uma alegria que é também a Dor, um clarão de beleza na tempestade das formas.""Nunca serei vencida. Só o serei à força de vencer. Cada emboscada desfeita, encerrando-me no amor que será o meu túmulo, há-de fazer-me terminar a vida num cárcere de victórias.""O amor é um [...]

    4.5☆ Marguerite Yourcenar reuniu neste livro um apanhado dos seus desabafos deixados à toa em folhas soltas, num período em que passava por um desgosto amoroso. Todos juntos não são mais que algumas páginas. O resto são relatos de amores históricos, sobretudo da mitologia grega. Aconselho uma pesquisa prévia sobre estas personagens; o tema é vasto e complexo. Eu, pelo menos, rapidamente esqueço os parentesco confusos, os nomes estranhos e às vezes tão semelhantes que me baralham.De [...]

    Así como El túnel de Sábato no se puede leer estando preso de los celos, creo que Fuegos de Yourcenar no se puede leer enamorado; cada frase y cada relato amplifican las formas en que pensamos y extrañamos a esa persona Puede que al lector que busque historias de amor con principio, nudo y desenlace se decepcione de los nueve relatos, pero cada relato es como un estereograma: hay que ver más allá de lo que está escrito, y visualizar la secreta imagen que esconde.

    At first I did not know how to take this book, which consists of nine prose poems from the point of view of mythological or historical figures, interspersed with aphorisms. As I read on, I realized that what held them together was the author's passion, imagining herself as Phaedra, Achilles and Patroclus, St Mary Magdalene, Clytemnestra, and Sappho. As a bisexual, Marguerite Yourcenar was able to see sex from the point of view of both sides. Perhaps my favorite was her Mary Magdalene, who had, i [...]

    Ai tempi, a fine lettura, mi venne voglia di partire per il Maine con uno scialle simile ai suoi, sedermi a terra dietro la porta della sua casa di Mount Desert e aspettare.

    "Il Destino è gioviale. Chi presta alla fatalità chissà che bella maschera tragica non ne conosce i rivestimenti teatrali. Un tetro sconosciuto burlone ripete la stessa traccia grossolana fino alle nausee dell'agonia. Aleggia intorno alla Sorte un vago odore di camera dei bambini, di scatola verniciata da cui spuntano i diavoli dell'Abitudine, di armadi da cui le nostre bambinaie, infagottate in modo grottesco, balzavano fuori di colpo nella speranza di farci urlare. I personaggi dei tragici [...]

    quand la passion surgit, toute raison disparaît - une écriture absolument somptueuse, magnifique, pour parler de 9 vies dévorées par une passion que rien ne pouvait éteindre - une belle découverte littéraire

    Um passeio sagaz e irredutível pelos meandros de corações em ebulição. O abismo, a vertigem, a morte anunciada da paixão e a consciência sempre aguçada de se amar uma máscara e nunca uma verdade. Em «Fogos» perscruta-se o imenso movimento da vida dos Homens; da sua tragédia. Mais do que amor fala-nos de carne. Eis a sua imponderável beleza.

    extractos de un diario de amor, de una pasión que consume. Yourcenar dice que el amor correspondido duele, roba el sueño y la dignidad y al mismo tiempo, ese dolor nos hace sentir vivos. Sus frases sueltas recrean la atmósfera del amor que espera, que nunca termina. Después vienen los relatos basados en los grandes mitos griegos: una narrativa limpia, que modifica a los héroes, humanizándolos. Los mejores relatos de "Fuegos" son la historia de María Magdalena y de Safo. Amor y una soledad [...]

    Series of monologues, adapted from mythological or historical figures from ancient Greece, interspersed with diary fragments about love. Not really sure what else to say about this one. Dumbfounded.

    One of the best books I have ever read. Pure genius. Marguerite Yourcenar's writing is splendrous. It fills my heart with joy, astonishment and admiration.

    Through the retelling of several myths and the notion of love, Yourcenar creates a collection of poetic proses that show a different side to mythical figures of literature. This book uses love and passion as the moving device for the stories to take place, exposing the frailty of humanity and the corporeal aspect of love.

    Fires consists of nine "lyrical prose pieces," inspired by Greek myths including Phaedra, Achilles, Sappho and others. The narrator inserts brief comments, aphoristic fragments on love, linking these pieces. In her preface the author comments that the book is "product of a love crisis, Fires is in the form of a collection of love poems, or, rather, is like a sequence of lyrical prose pieces connected by a notion of love. As such, the book does not require any commentary."(p ix). The fragments en [...]

    Una visón muy pesimista y trágica del amor es la que nos da Yourcenar en esta colección de narraciones poéticas y aforismos inspirados en algunos personajes de la Grecia clásica y del mundo judeocristiano. Los breves relatos están salpicados de anacronismos y referencias culturales diversas que los vuelven interesantes aunque demasiado crípticos a la vez como para entenderlos a profundidad. Mis narraciones favoritas fueron las dos últimas: Clitemnestra y Safo (en la que la poetisa es pre [...]

    Compré el libro como por una corazonada en una librería de viejo sin saber lo que contenía y ha resultado una verdadera sorpresa. 'Fuegos' es como la tragedia griega: cada capítulo te arrastra a una purificación personal profunda. Las pequeñas prosas poéticas que se intercalan con los relatos mitológicos me resumen. Es una maravilla.

    Sappho was very impressive, as were some of the others, notably Lena. I think this book would have a great impact on me had I read it I suppose after having a disastrous relationship. As things are, some sections, really, the digressions, didn't do much for me.

    Un lindo libro, con cuentos buenos y regulares, pero unos geniales, el de Maria Magdalena, Safo, Antigona y Clitenmestra estan muy bien hechos, es como leer seda o un bosque frondoso la poesia que maneja hay que leerla con ciudado para no perderse, recomendado.

    Amazing book. Yourcenar's writing is splendid, I sometimes have the feeling that I've written some of it. Of course, just like a pale shade, not like the finished sentence. My favorites were Phaedo and Achilles.

    Le sue grandi mani tremavano come se le fosse caduto a terra un segreto. Le porte spalancate fecero entrare la notte, i re, il vento, il cielo traboccante di segni.

    "Medio devorada por esa fiera implacable, trata de ser en secreto la domadora de su corazón". (pag 157) Safo o el suicidio

    Marguerite Yourcenar restera à jamais une de mes auteures adorées. Sa plume est une pure merveille et dissémine le long des pages des trésors, des sens qu’on ne découvre pas forcément à la première lecture. Ces pages sont vraiment faites pour être lues (et relues) dans un silence accueillant, parce que cette prose poétique devraient résonner partout Je m’emballe haha. Évidemment, mieux vaut avoir une bonne connaissances des mythes explorés ici, la lecture ne sera que plus profit [...]

    Welcome to Kürkçü Dükkanı!🔎"Gözlerim kirpiklerimin ağına düşmüş iki yırtıcı hayvandı".Sendromsuz bir Pazartesi diliyorumMümkün mü??🤔🤔Benim gibi mitolojiye pek ilgi duymayan birini epey zorladı okuması. Ama mitoloji ve tarih sevenlerin bayılacağı bir kitap olduğunu düşünüyorumKitabın arka kısmında da mitolojik açıklamalar var okuru aydınlatmak adınaKeyifle kalın kitap dostları.Sevgiyle.

    Probablemente porque lo leí como pasajero en tránsito en aeropuerto sin internet y sin poder buscar todas las referencias a los mitos griegos que no recuerdo bien, puede que me haya perdido cosas importantes. Me gustaron igual más los interludios con aforismos que los episodios poéticos salvo el de Safo que me pareció excelente.

    Rivisitando alcuni personaggi chiave della mitologia greca e non, la Yourcenar ci presenta un lungo monologo, a più voci, sofferto e malinconico - a tratti suggestivo e in alcune parti acerbo - che racchiude molte verità sull’amore, sul dolore e altro ancora. Voto: 4 e mezzo su 5.Dal libro:"Amare a occhi chiusi significa amare come un cieco. Amare a occhi aperti forse significa amare come un folle: accettare a fondo perduto.Io ti amo come una folle."

    Maurizio Manco
    "Solitudine Io non credo come credono loro, non vivo come vivono loro, non amo come amano loro Morrò come loro." (p. 2)"L'amore è un castigo. Veniamo puniti per non essere riusciti a rimanere soli." (p. 81)

    Simona Friuli
    Una scrittura, quella della Yourcenar, conchiusa ed ermetica. Ho apprezzato la manipolazione della materia mitica - particolarmente in "Antigone", "Fedra", "Achille" e "Clitemnestra. Ho apprezzato meno la componente aforismatica dell'opera: immaturità e tautologia.

    Rebekah Morgan
    I don't know if I "got" this book but I do get why and how Yourcenar translated The Waves.

    Re-descubrir este libro ha sido de los mejores hallazgos de mi vida como lectora. Violento y hermoso, como puede ser el corazón de una mujer que ha caído en desgracia por causa del amor.

    Di difficile lettura, non mi ha permesso di "entrare nelle storie": forse involontario ma uno sfoggio di cultura sicuramente fuori dalla mia portata
