Archipiélago de mujeres by Agustín Yáñez( Book )

23 editions published between 1943 and 2015 in Spanish and Italian and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Archipiélago de mujeres reúne siete intensos relatos en los que Agustín Yáñez retoma los personajes femeninos más emblemáticos de las obras clásicas y los convierte en mujeres del México de finales de los treinta y principios de los cuarenta. Así, nos demuestra, con la maestría que lo caracteriza, que estos arquetipos no han perdido ni su vigencia ni su frescura. Desfilan por estas páginas la enamoradiza Alda, la codiciable Melibea, la bella doña Endrina, la desdichada Desdémona, la perturbadora Oriana, la contradictoria Isolda y la trágica Inés; son la encarnación de la música, la revelación, el deseo, la belleza, la locura, la muerte y el amor, representaciones fieles de lo eterno en el alma femenina"--Back cover
Flor de juegos antiguos by Agustín Yáñez( Book )

23 editions published between 1941 and 2015 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La adultez en ocasiones exige la recuperación del sabor de una infancia perdida, mas no olvidada, así como lo hace Agustín Yáñez, teniendo como escenario los barrios de una antigua ciudad de provincia, aquella en la que todos los niños se reconocen a través de los juegos, de los amigos de aventuras y con suerte de los primeros amores. Los capítulos de Yáñez se entretejen como un ramillete de juegos y canciones que tenían lugar en las calles de un México rural que también se atrevía a ser urbano y que ahora, en gran medida, se ha ido, y al cual sólo podemos regresar a través de la nostálgica lectura de Flor de juegos antiguos, en donde se reafirma la estancia y abandono del país llamado infancia, uno cada día más lejano y cada día más próximo

Fray Bartolomé de las Casas : el conquistador conquistado by Agustín Yáñez( Book )

28 editions published between 1942 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fray Bartolomé de las Casas (1474-1566), forjador de la "leyenda negra" de la Conquista, defensor de los indígenas, luchó contra todas las adversidades y fue consecuente con ello hasta sus últimos días. Cautivado por el dominico, Agustín Yáñez presenta una exhaustiva revisión histórica que intenta esclarecer las cualidades del personaje y no del mito, sin omitir las contradicciones que signaron su vida y lo hicieron blanco de los ataques del hispanismo intransigente y bandera del antiespañolismo. A más de quinientos años de iniciada la lucha de fray Bartolomé, la lectura de este libro motivará a la reflexión de un problema, paradójicamente aún de actualidad, y a conocer los alegatos de una personalidad que se atrevió a trascender su tiempo y las sombras que llevaba a cuestas
