Cartas a los Jonquières by Julio Cortázar ( Book )
9 editions published in 2010 in Spanish and held by 142 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

Le premier homme by Albert Camus ( Book )
9 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in Spanish and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"En somme, je vais parler de ceux que j'aimais", écrit Albert Camus dans une note pour Le premier homme. Le projet de ce roman auquel il travaillait au moment de sa mort était ambitieux. Il avait dit un jour que les écrivains "gardent l'espoir de retrouver les secrets d'un art universel qui, à force d'humilité et de maîtrise, ressusciterait enfin les personnages dans leur chair et dans leur durée". Il avait jeté les bases de ce qui serait le récit de l'enfance de son "premier homme". Cette rédaction initiale a un caractère autobiographique qui aurait sûrement disparu dans la version définitive du roman. Mais c'est justement ce côté autobiographique qui est précieux aujourd'hui. Après avoir lu ces pages, on voit apparaître les racines de ce qui fera la personnalité de Camus, sa sensibilité, la genèse de sa pensée, les raisons de son engagement. Pourquoi, toute sa vie, il aura voulu parler au nom de ceux à qui la parole est refusée. -- Publisher description
Nausea by Jean-Paul Sartre ( Book )
29 editions published between 1949 and 2011 in Spanish and held by 46 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

Autobiografisch getint relaas over een jongen die zich uit oneigenlijke motieven aansluit bij het verzet in Italië in de Tweede Wereldoorlog
The sheltering sky ; Let it come down ; The spider's house by Paul Bowles ( Book )
13 editions published between 1988 and 2003 in Spanish and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Paul Bowles had already established himself as an important American composer when, at the age of 38, he published The Sheltering Sky and became widely recognized as one of the most powerful writers of the postwar period. By the time of his death in 1999 he had become a unique and legendary figure in modern literary culture. From his base in Tangier he produced novels, stories, and travel writings in which exquisite surfaces and violent undercurrents mingle. Bowles - who once told an interviewer, "I've always wanted to get as far as possible from the place where I was born"--Charts the collisions between "civilized" exiles and unfamiliar societies that they can never really grasp. In fiction of slowly gathering menace, he achieves effects of horror and dislocation with an elegantly spare style and understated wit. This Library of America volume, containing his first three novels, with its companion Collected Stories and Later Writings, is the first annotated edition of Bowles' work, offering the full range of his literary achievement: the portrait of an outsider who was one of the essential American writers of the last half century." "The Sheltering Sky (1949), which remains Bowles' most celebrated work, describes the unraveling of a young, sophisticated, and adventuresome married couple as they make their way into the Sahara. In a prose style of meticulous calm and stunning visual precision, Bowles tracks Port and Kit Moresby on a journey through the desert that culminates in death and madness." "In Let It Come Down (1952), Bowles plots the doomed trajectory of Nelson Dyar, a New York bank teller who comes to Tangier in search of a different life and ends up giving in to this darkest impulses. Rich in descriptions of the corruption and decadence of the International Zone in the last days before Moroccan independence, Bowles' second novel is an alternately comic and horrific account of a descent into nihilism." "The Spider's House (1955), the longest and most complex of Bowles' novels, is set against the end of French rule in Morocco. Its characters - ranging from a Moroccan boy gifted with spiritual healing power to an American writer who regrets the passing of traditional ways - are caught up in the clash between colonial and nationalist factions, and are forced to confront cultural gulfs widened by political violence."--BOOK JACKET
