Men of maize by Miguel Angel Asturias( Book )

49 editions published between 1981 and 1997 in 4 languages and held by 902 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Miguel Ángel Asturias recreó la tradición prehispánica guatemalteca. La memoria ancestral, desconocida, quedó, gracias a su obra, incorporada a la aventura artística y cedió el papel de protagonistas de la ficción a los desheredados de la historia. Las antiguas historias del Quiché relatan que, en el alba del mundo, los dioses fracasaron varias veces en el empeño de crear al hombre, hasta que dieron con la sustancia adecuada para formar a la criatura definitiva: el maíz. Desde el título mismo, esta obra proclama su filiación con los indios de Guatemala, pero los hombre de maíz que pueblan sus páginas son los descendientes de aquellos que sobrevivieron a la Conquista, atravesaron diversas catástrofes de la historia guatemalteca y alcanzaron la época en la que Asturias los recreó en la primera mitad del siglo XX."--P. [4] of cover

The Cambridge introduction to Gabriel García Márquez by Gerald Martin( Book )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Colombian Nobel Prize winner, Gabriel García Márquez (b. 1927), wrote two of the great novels of the twentieth century, One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera. As novelist, short story writer and journalist, García Márquez has one of literature's most instantly recognizable styles and since the beginning of his career has explored a consistent set of themes, revolving around the relationship between power and love. His novels exemplify the transition between modernist and post-modernist fiction and have made magical realism one of the most significant and influential phenomena in contemporary writing. Aimed at students of Latin American and comparative literature, this book provides essential information about García Márquez's life and career, his published work in literature and journalism, and his political engagement. It connects the fiction effectively to the writer's own experience and explains his enduring importance in world literature"--
Field of honour by Max Aub( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A contemporary of Lorca and Bunuel in Spain's Second Republic, Max Aub escaped into a life of exile after General Franco seized Barcelona. His masterpiece, acknowledged in Spain as one of the best accounts of the Spanish Civil War, is the five-novel cycle known as "The Magic Labyrinth"--Never before translated into English. A playwright as well as a novelist, he brings the period alive through vibrant dialogue and a story that navigates the factional intrigues that eventually erupted onto the streets in violence. The protagonist of the first novel is Rafael Lopez Serrador, whose coming of age in Barcelona introduces a cast from all walks of city life - Catalan nationalists, anarchists, Falangists, government ministers and showgirls. Just as central a character is Barcelona itself, lovingly depicted. Rafael's adventures bring him into contact with the forces that were to destroy the Republic and determine the bloody course of the Spanish Civil War
