"A giddy invasion of stories--brilliant, enigmatic, troubling, outrageous, erotic, beautiful."--The New York Times Book Review "So brilliant that you can't look at it anymore--and you can't look at anything else. ... No one will read it without reward." --The Boston Globe With the same narrative fecundity and imaginative sympathy he brought to his acclaimed retelling of the Greek myths, Roberto Calasso plunges Western readers into the mind of ancient India. He begins with a mystery: Why is the most important god in the Rg Veda, the oldest of India's sacred texts, known by a secret name--"Ka," or Who' What ensues is not an explanation, but an unveiling. Here are the stories of the creation of mind and matter; of the origin of Death, of the first sexual union and the first parricide. We learn why Siva must carry his father's skull, why snakes have forked tongues, and why, as part of a certain sacrifice, the king's wife must copulate with a dead horse. A tour de force of scholarship and seduction, Ka is irresistible. "Passage[s] of such ecstatic insight and cross-cultural synthesis--simply, of such beauty." --The New York Review of Books "All is spectacle and delight, and tiny mirrors reflecting human foibles are set into the weave, turning this retelling into the stuff of literature." --The New Yorker

Tiepolo pink by Roberto Calasso( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in Spanish and held by 17 libraries worldwide
Giambattista Tiepolo atravesó su época como un aplicado artista por encargo, famoso sobre todo por sus grandes frescos. Pero, junto a ellos, existe otra cara, más secreta e inquietante, de su obra: treinta y tres grabados divididos en dos series, los Scherzi y los Caprichos. Y Calasso los observa y los relata. Bajo su mirada, la obra de Tiepolo aparece como la última manifestación de una fluidez pictórica que, después, iba a perderse para siempre. (Anagrama)

The art of the publisher by Roberto Calasso( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 12 libraries worldwide
"An interior look at Roberto Calasso's work as a publisher and his reflections on the art of book publishing In this fascinating memoir, the author and publisher Roberto Calasso meditates on the art of book publishing. Recalling the beginnings of Adelphi in the 1960s, he touches on the Italian house's defining qualities, including the considerations involved in designing the successful Biblioteca series and the strategy for publishing a wide range of authors of high literary quality, as well as the historic critical edition of the works of Nietzsche. With his signature erudition and polemical flair, Calasso transcends Adelphi to look at the publishing industry as a whole, from the essential importance of graphics, jackets, and cover flaps to the consequences of universal digitization. And he outlines what he describes as the "most hazardous and ambitious" profile of what a publishing house can be: a book comprising many books, a form in which "all the books published by a certain publisher could be seen as links in a single chain"--a conception akin to that of other twentieth-century publishers, from Giulio Einaudi to Roger Straus, of whom the book offers brief portraits. An essential book for writers, readers, and editors, The Art of the Publisher is a tribute to the elusive yet profoundly relevant art of making books"--
