The autumn of the patriarch by Gabriel García Márquez( Book )

24 editions published between 1976 and 2008 in French and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Depuis trente ans, plusieurs grands romans latino-américains nous ont décrit par le menu, le monde hallucinant de la dictature à l'américaine : délation, exactions de tous ordres, assassinats, exterminations même, bestialité, cupidité, abus sexuels, protections étrangères, soif maladive de pouvoir que finalement la solitude transforme en frustration. Cette réalité tragique, nous la retrouvons tout au long de ce roman, mais sous la plume de Garcia Marquez elle prend une dimension burlesque incomparable. Le patriarche est ici un dictateur dans la grande tradition de l'Amérique Latine. C'est un vieux général qui a " entre 107 et 232 ans ". Tyran méfiant et délirant, les structures minables de son pays arriéré le vouent à des aventures cauchemardesques que l'imagination non moins délirante de Gabriel Garcia Marquez transforme en folles équipées drolatiques. Cocasserie, jaillissement incessant de trouvailles, ruissellements de mots qui brillent comme d'insolites pierres précieuses : on retrouve dans l'Automne du patriarche toute la magie de Cent ans de solitude

Chant général by Pablo Neruda( Book )

8 editions published between 1977 and 2001 in French and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pablo Neruda's epic poem Canto General is a prodigious work that scrolls out like the chronicle of a journey through the Americas, as the poet strives to provide a unifying vision of reality. Neruda's most audacious and ambitious achievement, Canto General locates and reveals communal sources of strength in the place of our origin, land of our ancestors. The poet depicts history as a vast, continuous struggle against oppression. Constructed in fifteen parts, and made up of more than fifteen thousand lines, Canto General unfolds in successive epochs, celebrating the flora and fauna and geology of Neruda's homeland and recounting episodes in the lives of explorers and conquistadors, emperors and dictators, revolutionaries and everyday laborers.--
