Arte y percepción visual : psicología del ojo creador : nueva versión by Rudolf Arnheim( Book )

33 editions published between 1979 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Como señalo Herbert Read, Arte y percepción visual -cuya primera edición data de 1954- fue "el primer intento sistemático de aplicar a las artes visuales los principios de la psicología de la gestalt". Desde un enfoque eminentemente práctico, Rudolf Arnheim -nacido en Berlín en 1904, catedrático de Psicología del Arte en la Universidad de Harvard desde 1968- deslinda los componentes básicos de la obra de arte, basándose en los resultados de numerosos estudios experimentales y mostrando la universalidad de factores como el equilibrio, la tendencia a la forma más simple y el fenómeno de figura y fondo. En esta nueva versión -completamente revisada- el texto original ha ganado en precisión, conservando al tiempo la claridad de lenguaje que lo hace accesible al lector no especializado

Lectures on Don Quixote by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov( Book )

14 editions published between 1987 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En el curso 1951-1952, cuatro años antes de publicar Lolita, Vladimir Nabokov dictó en la Universidad de Harvard seis lecciones sobre el Quijote. Aquellas clases, en las que el escritor pretendía demostrar que se trataba "del libro más amargo y bárbaro de todos los tiempos", fueron publicadas póstumemente, en 1983, por Fredson Browers con el título de Lectures on Don Quixote. Nabokov no pensaba que el Quijote fuera la mejor novela de todos los tiempos; ni siquiera creía que fuera buena; es más, habría abandonado gustoso su lectura en el capítulo sexto, tras el escrutinio de la biblioteca del caballero. Quizá el gran error de interpretación de Nabokov fue enfrentarse al Quijote desde una perspectiva totalmente anglosajona, desde la devoción más absoluta a Shakespeare. Ante los seiscientos estudiantes que siguieron aquellas conferencias, intentó desmitificar el libro y hacerles evidentes sus defectos y sus aciertos. a pesar de sus controvertidas opiniones sobre el autor y el personaje, Nabokov reconoció sin ambages la pervivencia del Quijote en la gran narrativa posterior, desde Dickens hasta Tolstoi. -- Contracarátula
