Most widely held works by Xabier Mendiguren
Michael Kohlhaas by Heinrich von Kleist( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in Basque and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"You can send me to the scaffold, but I can make you suffer, and I mean to." Based on actual historic events, this thrilling saga of violence and retribution bridged the gap between medieval and modern literature, and speaks so profoundly to the contemporary spirit that it has been the basis of numerous plays, movies, and novels. It has become, in fact, a classic tale: that of the honorable man forced to take the law into his own hands. In this incendiary prototype, a minor tax dispute intensifies explosively, until the eponymous hero finds the forces of an entire kingdom, and even the great Martin Luther, gathered against him. But soon even Luther comes to echo the growing army of peasants asking, 'Isnt' Kohlhaas right?'

Cat and mouse by Günter Grass( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in Basque and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the publication of his first novel, The Tin Drum, Günter Grass was acclaimed internationally as the most imaginative and powerful novelist to come out of postwar Germany. Cat and Mouse has the same setting that The Tin Drum made famous: Danzig and its petty bourgeoisie. But the art form is deliberately different. Brief and compact, it focuses on the extraordinary fate and person of one hero, Joachim Mahlke, fourteen years old when the story starts. Mahlke is set apart from his fellows by an unusual excrescence of cartilage, a huge Adam's apple, sign and symbol of precocious virility, at once embarrassing and stimulating to its bearer. When a classmate sics a cat on Mahlke's "mouse," he unwittingly launches him on a hero's career. In order to compensate for his mouse, Mahlke turns himself into an athlete and ace diver who brings up from a half-submerged ship all kinds of hardware to string around his neck. He becomes "The Great Mahlke," first to his classmates and later to the nation. Mahlke's mentors, however, refuse to be impressed. For the cat watching him, ready to pounce, is a society of petty men. Not even by gaining his country's highest honor, the Order of Merit, the most dazzling piece of hardware to cover his protuberance, does Mahlke succeed in conciliating his enemies. Mahlke is different, Mahlke is doomed. With ferocious virtuosity, Gunter Grass maps the local and mental circumstances of Mahlke's dramatic and pathetic struggle, compelling the reader's participation and belief."--Book jacket

Traps by Friedrich Dürrenmatt( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in Basque and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Une panne de voiture amène Alfredo Traps, agent général et représentant exclusif du tissu synthétique Héphaïstos, à interrompre son voyage. Rien n'est libre à l'hôtel du village où il s'est arrêté et on lui indique l'adresse de quelqu'un qui ne refusera sûrement pas de l'héberger. En effet, son hôte, un très vieux monsieur, l'invite même à dîner avec lui et ses trois amis. Aimerait-il participer aussi à leur jeu ? Chaque soir, ils exercent à nouveau pour se distraire leur profession de naguère. Ils sont juge, procureur, avocat et bourreau, mais l'accusé manque. Traps accepte le rôle d'autant plus volontiers que le repas se révèle un festin à lʹancien bien fait pour réjouir son âme de bon vivant. Par contre, il ne voit pas pour quel crime on pourrait le juger. Sa vie est toute innocence, à quelques peccadilles près -- exemplaire dans sa banalité. Il est aveugle à cette évidence que nul sur terre n'est en droit de se dire les mains nettes
