Curso de literatura europea by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov( Book )

12 editions published between 1983 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A lo largo de casi dos décadas, Vladimir Nabokov impartió en las universidades de Wellesley y Cornell unos cursos de literatura, tan apasionados como apasionantes, que se convirtieron en leyenda. Fredson Bowers los reconstruyó a partir de los apuntes del maestro. Nabokov, lejos de generalidades y teorizaciones, enseña a leer a sus alumnos, a acariciar los detalles y a apasionarse con la lectura a fondo de los grandes de la literatura europea: Jane Austen, Dickens, Stevenson, Proust, Flaubert, Joyce o Kafka. Vladimir Nabokov (San Petersburgo, 1899-Montreux, Suiza, 1977) está considerado uno de los más grandes escritores del siglo XX, en especial por su novela Lolita (1955)

The monk by M. G Lewis( Book )

18 editions published between 1979 and 2011 in Spanish and Catalan and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El Monje, de Matthew G. Lewis, libro terrible y una de las cimas de la novela gótica, vio la luz en marzo de 1796, y despertó inmediatamente el interés y el asombro de la crítica y el público. Hoy, doscientos años más tarde, el poder hipnótico de su prosa y el veneno moral que destilan sus páginas sigue despertando el asombro de las generaciones de lectores que gustan del terror clásico. Ya desde su aparición, la obra fue tachada y condenada por impía, libertina, atea y corrompida. H. P. Lovecraft, maestro de ceremonias de la literatura macabra, la considera «una obra maestra de verdadera pesadilla cuyos elementos generales de corte gótico están condimentados con un cúmulo de rasgos macabros». La novela nos presenta a un monje español, llamado Ambrosio, quien de un estado profundamente virtuoso pasa a ser tentado por el demonio bajo la apariencia de la doncella Matilde. Finalmente, Ambrosio es condenado a morir en manos de la Inquisición." -- Cubierta

His story is pieced together by those who have glimpsed his eerie existence over the centuries--from a prisoner in the clutches of the Spanish Inquisition to a man incarcerated in a London lunatic asylum."--Back cover

The great train robbery by Michael Crichton( Book )

13 editions published between 1976 and 2004 in Spanish and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In teeming Victorian London, where lavish wealth and appalling poverty live side by side, Edward Pierce charms the most prominent of the well-to-do as he cunningly orchestrates the crime of the century. Who would suspect that a gentleman of breeding could mastermind the daring theft of a fortune in gold? Who could predict the consequences of making the extraordinary robbery aboard the pride of England's industrial era, the mighty steam locomotive? Based on fact, as lively as legend, and studded with all the suspense and style of a modern fiction master, here is a classic caper novel set a decade before the age of dynamite--yet nonetheless explosive

La muerte de Arturo by Thomas Malory( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Durante los años inciertos de la Guerra de las Dos Rosas, sir Thomas Malory (1408-1471), un caballero de vida azarosa, escribió, supuestamente desde la cárcel, la primera gran epopeya de la literatura inglesa a partir de su propia recopilación de viejas fuentes francesas y británicas que iba traduciendo a la vez que añadiendo ideas de su cosecha, hasta ir perfeccionando su obra a medida que avanzaba el libro, para culminar en los capítulos finales, que son los más admirables de cualquiera de las versiones artúricas. La obra se imprimió en 1485 en el taller de William Caxton, el primer impresor de Inglaterra, que la tituló Le Morte D'Arthur. Caxton prologó y unificó las ocho novelas que escribió Malory en veintiún libros, dando así coherencia temática a la maestría narrativa de su autor.Gracias a este libro, los relatos artúricos han conocido múltiples y variadas ediciones a lo largo de estos cinco siglos, siendo Malory, junto con Shakespeare y Chaucer, uno de los pocos autores ingleses de un pasado no cercano que siguen siendo leídos. Fruto tardío del medievo, Le Morte D'Arthur es sin embargo la versión moderna del universo artúrico y no ha dejado de inspirar recreaciones nuevas, desde Scott a Tennyson, Mark Twain o los pintores prerrafaelistas hasta las versiones más recientes de T. H. White o J. Steinbeck

Jude the obscure : an authoritative text, backgrounds and sources, criticism by Thomas Hardy( Book )

9 editions published between 1972 and 2013 in Spanish and Catalan and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marriage, the Church of England, and the British university system all come under criticism in a story about two cousins who love each other and want to improve their lot in life." "In this haunting love story, a couple who have each fled a previous marriage find love and fulfillment together, only to have tragedy overwhelm them." "Both having left earlier marriages, Jude Fawley and Sue Brideshead find happiness in their relationship. Ironically, when tragedy tests their union, it is Sue, the modern emancipated woman, who proves unequal to the challenge."
La filosofía en Oriente : la filosofía islámica, india y china hasta nuestros días by Guy Bugault( Book )

7 editions published between 1982 and 2005 in Spanish and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The private memoirs and confessions of a justified sinner, written by himself, with a detail of curious traditionary facts and other evidence by the editor by James Hogg( Book )

7 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Memorias privadas y confesiones de un pecador justificado, publicada por primera vez en 1824, es una obra maestra que reúne los mejores ingredientes de la novela gótica, la intriga y el estudio de la mente de los personajes. Hogg concibió esta novela metafísica de manera que fuese tomada por una historia real, y llegó a incluirse a sí mismo como personaje secundario en esta caja de sorpresas narrativa. Tal vez sea difícil encontrar una obra, si se exceptúa Los elixires del diablo, de E.T.A. Hoffmann, donde el tema del doble sea tratado con tanta intensidad como en esta obra clásica de la ficción sobrenatural. La composición de la novela es realmente moderna, pues aparece primero el relato del editor, un observador supuestamente objetivo, y después las memorias del protagonista, confesiones que son un ejemplo de estudio psicológico de un asesino

Su llegada al pueblo representa la aparición del extraño en el paraíso. A pesar de que la joven convive durante catorce años con ellos, los fieles adeptos a la palabra de Dios la consideran un ente ajeno a la gracia divina. Un día, Babette desea agradecer su hospitalidad ofreciéndoles un banquete en honor del difunto padre ..."--Back cover
