Cartas a los Jonquières by Julio Cortázar( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in Spanish and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Entre las cartas de Julio Cortázar se destacan éstas que publicamos ahora, enviadas al pintor y poeta argentino Eduardo Jonquiéres, a quien lo unieron cincuenta años de amistad. El conjunto es de una extraordinaria importancia porque se da en ellas algo inusual en el autor, que se permite confidencias, consejos y discrepancias: son atisbos al Cortázar más secreto. Constituyen también la crónica detallada de los primeros años de su instalación en Europa, decisivos en su formación estética y de los que apenas hay testimonio. Como obra del artista que fue, son a la vez crónica de viaje, crítica de arte y literatura, episodios de un humorista irresistible, ejercicios de introspección, reflejo de la historia y de los cambios de la vida social del siglo XX

Nausea by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

47 editions published between 1949 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Winner of the 1964 Nobel Prize for Literature, Jean-Paul Sartre, French philosopher, critic, novelist, and dramatist, holds a position of singular eminence in the world of letters. Among readers and critics familiar with the whole of Sartre's work, it is generally recognized that his earliest novel, La Nausée (first published in 1938), is his finest and most significant. It is unquestionably a key novel of the twentieth century and a landmark in Existentialist fiction. Nausea is the story of Antoine Roquentin, a French writer who is horrified at his own existence. In impressionistic, diary form he ruthlessly catalogues his every feeling and sensation. His thoughts culminate in a pervasive, overpowering feeling of nausea which "spreads at the bottom of the viscous puddle, at the bottom of our time -- the time of purple suspenders and broken chair seats; it is made of wide, soft instants, spreading at the edge, like an oil stain." Roquentin's efforts to come to terms with life, his philosophical and psychological struggles, give Sartre the opportunity to dramatize the tenets of his Existentialist creed

Seis propuestas para el próximo milenio by Italo Calvino( Book )

16 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in Spanish and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El milenio que está por terminar ha asistido al nacimiento y a la expansión de las lenguas modernas de Occidente y de las literaturas que han explorado las posibilidades expresivas y cognoscitivas e imaginativas de esas lenguas. Ha sido también el milenio del libro, dado que ha visto cómo el objeto libro adquiría la forma que nos es familiar. La señal de que el milenio está por concluir tal vez sea la frecuencia con que nos interrogamos sobre la suerte de la literatura y del libro en la era tecnológica llamada postindustrial. No voy a aventurarme en previsiones de este tipo. Mi fe en el futuro de la literatura consiste en saber que hay cosas que sólo la literatura, con sus medios específicos, puede dar. Quisiera, pues, dedicar estas conferencias a algunos valores o cualidades o especificidades de la literatura que me son particularmente caros, tratando de situarlos en la perspectiva del nuevo milenio

Why read the classics? by Italo Calvino( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Los clásicos son, para Italo Calvino (1923-1985), aquellos libros que nunca terminan de decir lo que tienen que decir, textos que cuanto más cree uno conocerlos de oídas, tanto más nuevos, inesperados, inéditos resultan al leerlos de verdad. Y ése es el convencimiento que anima a Italo Calvino a comentar los suyos, según su criterio de que el clásico de cada uno es aquel que no puede serte indiferente y que te sirve para definirte a ti mismo en relación y quizás en contraste con él

Collection of sand : essays by Italo Calvino( Book )

Talo Calvino?s unbounded curiosity and masterly imagination are displayed in peak form in Collection of Sand, the last of his works published during his lifetime. Here he applies his graceful intellect to the delights of the visual world, in essays on subjects ranging from cuneiform and antique maps to Mexican temples and Japanese gardens. Never before translated into English, Collection of Sand is an incisive and often surprising meditation on observation and knowledge, the difference between the world as we perceive it and the world as it is
