Cartas a los Jonquières by Julio Cortázar( Book )
8 editions published in 2010 in Spanish and held by 151 libraries worldwide
Entre las cartas de Julio Cortázar se destacan éstas que publicamos ahora, enviadas al pintor y poeta argentino Eduardo Jonquiéres, a quien lo unieron cincuenta años de amistad. El conjunto es de una extraordinaria importancia porque se da en ellas algo inusual en el autor, que se permite confidencias, consejos y discrepancias: son atisbos al Cortázar más secreto. Constituyen también la crónica detallada de los primeros años de su instalación en Europa, decisivos en su formación estética y de los que apenas hay testimonio. Como obra del artista que fue, son a la vez crónica de viaje, crítica de arte y literatura, episodios de un humorista irresistible, ejercicios de introspección, reflejo de la historia y de los cambios de la vida social del siglo XX

A través de una serie de relatos de viaje que Marco Polo hace a Kublai Kan, emperador de los tártaros, hablándole de ciudades imposibles, Calvino no sólo evoca una idea atemporal de la ciudad, sino que desarrolla, implícita o explícitamente, una discusión sobre la ciudad moderna

Nausea by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )
33 editions published between 1949 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 66 libraries worldwide
Winner of the 1964 Nobel Prize for Literature, Jean-Paul Sartre, French philosopher, critic, novelist, and dramatist, holds a position of singular eminence in the world of letters. Among readers and critics familiar with the whole of Sartre's work, it is generally recognized that his earliest novel, La Nausée (first published in 1938), is his finest and most significant. It is unquestionably a key novel of the twentieth century and a landmark in Existentialist fiction. Nausea is the story of Antoine Roquentin, a French writer who is horrified at his own existence. In impressionistic, diary form he ruthlessly catalogues his every feeling and sensation. His thoughts culminate in a pervasive, overpowering feeling of nausea which "spreads at the bottom of the viscous puddle, at the bottom of our time -- the time of purple suspenders and broken chair seats; it is made of wide, soft instants, spreading at the edge, like an oil stain." Roquentin's efforts to come to terms with life, his philosophical and psychological struggles, give Sartre the opportunity to dramatize the tenets of his Existentialist creed
The first man by Albert Camus( Book )
12 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 61 libraries worldwide
Ese hombre del título sería el padre del niño Jacques Cormery, protagonista de esta historia. Pero de este padre emigrante, que murió en el frente durante la primera guerra mundial y que se había casado con una menorquina analfabeta y casi muda con la que apenas dispuso del tiempo necesario para tener dos hijos, poco se sabrá. Los pobres no tienen historia, o tan sólo aquella que les otorgan las guerras y las revoluciones. El verdadero primer hombre es el hijo: sin padre, educado en un miserable barrio periférico de argel por una abuela autoritaria, que le inflige castigos corporales ante una madre impotente, exhausta por su trabajo "en casas ajenas", ¿cómo y por qué caminos llegó ese niño indigente a convertirse en Premio Nobel de Literatura? El caso es que esta novela, que narra cómo ese niño va haciéndose lentamente, construyéndose a sí mismo, tan diferente de lo que cabría esperar de él por sus orígenes, se nos aparece como la historia de la propia niñez de Albert Camus

"Organizada en cinco volúmenes que abarcan un período comprendido entre 1937 y 1984, la presente edición de la correspondencia cortazariana es una versión corregida y muy aumentada respecto de la publicada en el año 2000: presenta más de mil cartas nuevas, recupera los fragmentos suprimidos en la primera edición e incluye índices de obras del autor y de personas citadas.

Seis propuestas para el próximo milenio by Italo Calvino( Book )
13 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in Spanish and held by 28 libraries worldwide
El milenio que está por terminar ha asistido al nacimiento y a la expansión de las lenguas modernas de Occidente y de las literaturas que han explorado las posibilidades expresivas y cognoscitivas e imaginativas de esas lenguas. Ha sido también el milenio del libro, dado que ha visto cómo el objeto libro adquiría la forma que nos es familiar. La señal de que el milenio está por concluir tal vez sea la frecuencia con que nos interrogamos sobre la suerte de la literatura y del libro en la era tecnológica llamada postindustrial. No voy a aventurarme en previsiones de este tipo. Mi fe en el futuro de la literatura consiste en saber que hay cosas que sólo la literatura, con sus medios específicos, puede dar. Quisiera, pues, dedicar estas conferencias a algunos valores o cualidades o especificidades de la literatura que me son particularmente caros, tratando de situarlos en la perspectiva del nuevo milenio
