Mariana Frenk-Westheim nació, con el nombre de Marianne Helen Freund, en Hamburgo, Alemania, en 1898, y murió en México en 2004. Fue una mujer excepcional no sólo por su longevidad. Abandonó Alemania y emigró a México en 1930 ante la conciencia del holocausto inminente. Contribuyó a la cultura mexicana con traducciones, el ejercicio de la docencia y la promoción de las artes. Dio a conocer en español la obra del historiador de arte Paul Westheim (1886-1963), es decir, el pensamiento de uno de los primeros críticos del expresionismo alemán, quien además estudió en profundidad el arte prehispánico a partir de 1942, año en que se exilió en México. La traducción de Mariana de la novela Pedro Páramo al alemán estimuló la proyección internacional de Juan Rulfo y de la literatura latinoamericana en Europa. Tradujo también los comentarios de Eduard Seler al Códice Borgia, y escribió sobre literatura y artes plásticas en suplementos y revistas a lo largo de medio siglo. Arte entre dos continentes es la primera muestra antológica de esos textos, algunos inéditos. Más de medio centenar de artículos y ensayos sobre artes plásticas divididos en seis apartados y un apéndice. La escritura de Mariana Frenk-Westheim concibe el ensayo como conversación: la profundidad de las ideas convive con la sencillez narrativa, se respira la lucha emprendida por los artistas en su proceso creativo. Las notas monográficas y biográficas complementan los textos de la estudiosa alemana y ayudan a situarlos en su época y sus circunstancias, y nos dejan señales para ahondar sobre artistas y personajes que el tiempo y los complejos procesos que conducen al olvido individual y colectivo han opacado cuando no confinado en un breve lapso de nuestra historia inmediata

The burning plain and other stories by Juan Rulfo( Book )

9 editions published between 1964 and 2013 in German and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To introduce a new generation of readers to Rulfos unsurpassable literary talents, this new translation repositions the collection as a classic of world literature. Working from the definitive Spanish edition of El llano en llamas established by the Fundación Juan Rulfo, Ilan Stavans and co-translator Harold Augenbram present fresh translations of the original fifteen stories, as well as two more stories that have not appeared in English beforeThe Legacy of Matilde Arcángel and The Day of the Collapse. The translators have artfully preserved the authors peasantisms, in appreciation of the distinctive voices of his characters. Such careful, elegiac rendering of the stories perfectly suits Rulfos Mexico, in which people on the edge of despair nonetheless retain a sense of self, of integrity that will not be taken away
