Juanita la Larga by Juan Valera( Book )

290 editions published between 1895 and 2013 in 9 languages and held by 1,682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Juanita la Larga (1896), the third of Juan Valera's eponymous novels with a female protagonist, unfolds in a small town in nineteenth-century Spain and tells the story of a young girl's romance with a wealthy widower many years her senior. In addition to their substantial difference in years and class, the lovers must contend with the indignation of his imperious married daughter, the public rebuke of a churchman, and the strictures of society. As the novel opens, readers are introduced to Juanita in the exuberance of youth. We witness her maturation into a young woman and along the way we watch as she learns to deal with humiliation, anger, jealousy, and a pride that makes for bittersweet moments. Juanita reveals a cunning personality that is complemented by a dogged determination and an iron will; once she realizes what she wants in life neither the fear of reprisal nor the prospect of ostracism deters her. Other well-conceived, well-delineated characters are Juana, Juanita's mother and village do-it-all; Dona Ines, the haughty, sanctimonious daughter of the widower Don Paco who falls head over heels in love with Juanita and wants to marry her; Don Alvaro Roldan, Dona Ines's dissolute husband; and Don Policarpo, the town druggist."--Publisher's website

El pájaro verde by Juan Valera( Book )

70 editions published between 1893 and 2012 in Spanish and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

«El maestro Raimundico nunca había querido comprometerse ni mezclarse en política; pero de súbito acababa de cambiar. Se había hecho fusionista y había consentido en ser jefe de aquel partido político y alcalde en Villalegre. Era viudo hacía ya quince años. Y hacía cerca de siete que tenía a su único hijo, don Raimundo Roldán de Cadenas, estudiando o paseando y holgando en Madrid, pues sobre este punto difieren no poco los autores. Difieren asimismo sobre la causa de la larga y no interrumpida ausencia del hijo, atribuyéndola unos a la viudez más alegre que recoleta del padre, para la cual hubiera sido estorbo o escándalo la presencia del hijo, y atribuyéndola otros al despego y a la soberbia de éste, que vivía en Madrid como caballerito muy elegante e ilustre que hablaba de su casa solariega y que repugnaba volver al lugar a ver la plebeya ordinariez de su padre y la primitiva y fundamental zapatería, tenazmente conservada.&#187

Ambos conquistan en Lisboa a Donna Olimpia y Teletusa, con quienes embarcan a la India y allí defienden a los portugueses y a los brahmanes de los musulmanes. Morsamor se casa con la bella Urbasi y tras perderla marcha al país mogol, donde conoce al sabio Sankacharia, amigo de fray Ambrosio. Decide entonces regresar a España, y en el viaje de vuelta naufraga ... Despierta en su convento, junto a fray Ambrosio: ha entendido el lenguaje de los sueños y muere en paz entre sus amigos
