Description
Drama Writing. Illustrated by Eliane Bonabel. Translated from the French by Thomas and Carol Christensen. Celine's fascination with the ballet spans his literary career: three of the pieces in this volume were written around the same time that he published his great novel, VOYAGE AU BOUT DE LA NUIT, which he dedicated to the dancer Elisabeth Craig. At the time of his death, according to his wife -- also a dancer -- he was planning a book devoted to dance. In 1936 he visited Russia, where he tried, unsuccessfully, to have some of his ballets performed in Leningrad. In 1959 five of his ballets were collected by Editions Gallimard. The result is this edition, never before published in English.
