The master : a novel by Colm Tóibín( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in Spanish and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is January 1895 and the play Guy Domville, Henry James, which he hopes will provide a fortune, proves to be a flop in London theater. Opening with this disaster, the novel The Master goes into the next five years of the life of Henry James. During that time, he moved to Rye in Sussex. There he wrote his masterpiece The Turn of the Screw, a nouvelle which incorporates many autobiographical details. Toibin portrays his life within a cultured family before the American Civil War, his trips to Paris, Rome, Venice or London, but mostly discusses with great insight the creative process of an exceptional storyteller and his way of dealing with their identity
The dead by James Joyce( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in Spanish and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a letter to his brother in 1906, James Joyce confessed: 'Sometimes thinking of Ireland it seems to me that I have been unnecessarily harsh ... I have not been just to its beauty'." "One reason for the composition of The Dead in 1907 was to compensate for this injustice and to add a new and quite different conclusion to his collection of short stories, Dubliners. Why Joyce felt compelled to change his view of Ireland, and how his narrative technique evolved to accommodate this change, becomes one of the focal points for this illuminating study. Furthermore, why John Huston felt compelled to adapt The Dead, and how he did so, provides another enlightening context." "Although eighty years separate Huston's film from Joyce's text, the presence of Joyce's story can be found earlier in European cinema, in Roberto Rossellini's Voyage in Italy (1953). Kevin Barry explores the extraordinary relationships between these three works and the radically different aesthetics of fidelity and infidelity practised by these exemplary artists of the twentieth century."--Jacket

Greene on Capri : a memoir by Shirley Hazzard( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in Spanish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For millennia the cliffs of Capri have sheltered pleasure seekers and refugees alike, among them the emperors Augustus and Tiberius, Henry James, Rilke, Lenin, and hosts of artists, eccentrics, and outcasts. Here in the 1960s Graham Greene got to know Shirley Hazzard and her husband, the writer Francis Steegmuller; their friendship lasted until Greene's death in 1991. In Greene on Capri, Hazzard uses their ever-volatile intimacy as a prism through which to illuminate Greene's mercurial character, his work and talk, and the literary culture that long thrived on this ravishing island."--Jacket
