Zama by Antonio Di Benedetto( Book )

75 editions published between 1956 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1956, Zama is now universally recognized as one of the masterpieces of modern Argentinean and Spanish-language literature. Written in a style that is both precise and sumptuous, Zama takes place in the last decade of the eighteenth century and describes the solitary, suspended existence of Don Diego de Zama, a highly placed servant of the Spanish crown who has been posted to Asunción, the capital of remote Paraguay. Eaten up by pride, lust, petty grudges, and paranoid fantasies, Don Diego does as little as he possibly can while plotting an eventual transfer to Buenos Aires, where everything about his hopeless existence will, he is confident, be miraculously transformed and made good. Don Diego's slow, nightmarish slide into the abyss is not just a tale of one man's perdition but an exploration of existential, and very American, loneliness. Zama's stark, dreamlike prose and spare imagery make every word appear to emerge from an ocean of things left unsaid"--

Le narrateur-sans-nom, le silenciaire, dit du bruit qu'il asservit, qu'il corrompt l'être. Il entraîne sa mère et son épouse dans sa quête d'un lieu inaccessible au son. Le champ de sa conscience tend à se rétrécir jusqu'à ne plus laisser entrer que les bruits. Sa raison s'altère et chancelle. Le silenciaire fait partie d'une trilogie, avec Zama et Les suicidés

Nest in the bones : stories by Antonio Di Benedetto( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Philosophically engaged and darkly moving, the twenty stories in Nest in the Bones span three decades from Antonio di Benedetto's wildly various career. From his youth in Argentina to his exile in Spain after enduring imprisonment and torture under the military dictatorship during the so-called "dirty war" to his return in the 1980s, Benedetto's kinetic stories move effortlessly between genres, examining civilization's subtle but violent imprint on human consciousness. A late-twentieth century master of the short form and revered by his contemporaries, Nest in the Bones is the first comprehensive volume of Benedetto's stories available in English"--

Aballay by Antonio Di Benedetto( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in Spanish and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El célebre relato "Aballay" de Antonio Di Benedetto es el punto de partida de la película homónima de Fernando Spiner. Hay coincidencias geográficas y sociales entre la vida rural del lejano oeste norteamericano y la pampa sudamericana: las grandes extensiones no conquistadas, los hombres que viven a caballo y la ley ausente, que deja lugar al culto de las armas y la pelea; el relato agrega los componentes de la venganza y el duelo, una temática de alcance global. "Aballay", la película, es también un nuevo abordaje de la gauchesca, con el desafío de salirse del estereotipo de la gauchesca pampeana -en esta ocasión, es el gaucho habitante de los Valles Calchaquíes con su importante influencia indígena- y de redescubrir al gaucho como personaje, con la liturgia de sus armas, su relación con la ley y su íntima vinculación con el caballo, protagonista fundamental de la colonización.
