Journey to the end of the night by Louis-Ferdinand Céline( Book )
25 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 55 libraries worldwide
Viaje al fin de la noche narra la epopeya de Ferdinand Baradamu, herido en la primera guerra mundial en la que participa como voluntario, enamorado de una prostituta sin futuro, sobreviviendo en las colonias francesas en África gracias a un trabajo alienante, persiguiendo su particular sueño americano, de regreso en Francia trabajando como médico rural. Pero más allá del argumento, la fuerza y el interés de la novela residen en la prosa amarga y quebradiza de Céline, en su característico ritmo acelerado, en el lirismo salvaje y descarnado con que construyó a sus personajes o la altiva mueca con que contempló la existencia y que han provocado siempre las más encontradas reacciones; pero que sin duda le convierten en uno de los autores de mayor vigencia y, a través sobre todo de la generación beat, tal vez en el que mayor influencia ha ejercido en las nuevas promociones de narradores. Una gran novela que contiene muchas claves para comprender la literatura europea y latinoamericana actual

Sexus by Henry Miller( Book )
22 editions published between 1978 and 2012 in Spanish and Catalan and held by 44 libraries worldwide
"When Henry Miller left America for Paris in the 1930s to lead the life of a literary bohemian, he called this death of his former existence and his resurrection as a writer a 'rosy crucifixion'. This dramatic transformation provided the leitmotif for some of Miller's finest writing, embodying everything he felt about self-liberation and the true life of the spirit. 'Sexus', the first volume in the 'Rosy Crucifixion' trilogy, looks back in fictionalised form to Miller's America life in the 1920s. Frantically seeking antidotes to his dreary job and life 'in a morbidly respectable neighbourhood' with his wife Maude, Miller becomes obsessed with the promiscuous and mysterious Mara, dance hall hostess, femme fatale and pathological liar. First published in Paris in 1949, this picaresque, extraordinarily candid tale of Miller's sexual escapades amongst the low-life of Brooklyn was banned in Great Britain and America for nearly twenty years."--Back cover

La Légende noire de l'Espagne by Joseph Pérez( Book )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in Spanish and held by 27 libraries worldwide
En esta obra, Joseph Pérez, uno de los hispanistas más prestigiosos y de más reconocida trayectoria, plantea un análisis riguroso sobre el origen y motivación de la Leyenda Negra, su relación con los hechos probados por la historiografía más reciente, dentro y fuera de España, y la suerte que han corrido la Leyenda, y sus ecos, hasta nuestros días. El resultado es un libro de amena y apasionante lectura, que, como los buenos ensayos históricos, nos ayuda a leer de nuevo la historia de España. ¿Cómo y porqué nació la Leyenda Negra? ¿Qué base tenían las críticas que contenía hacia España y hacia la Casa de Austria? ¿Hasta que punto esta defendió intereses de España o sus propios intereses dinásticos? Pérez identifica un precedente de la Leyenda en la reacción que generó a finales de la Edad Media, sobre todo en Italia, la expansión de la Corona de Aragón por el Mediterráneo. Una reacción, ante todo, a la expansión, al éxito y también a los excesos, de la potencia extranjera. A partir de la Apología de Guillermo de Orange, el documento que encarnó el nacimiento de la Leyenda como tal, Joseph Pérez analiza con detalle y objetividad cada uno de los elementos de la Leyenda: los ataques a Felipe II, a la Inquisición española y a la conquista de América, y establece el grado de fundamento o de exageración y deformación interesada que hay en cada uno de ellos. Al mismo tiempo, sitúa en el contexto adecuado todas estas cuestiones, comparándolas con episodios similares (represiones, guerras de religión, colonizaciones...) que tuvieron lugar por parte de otras potencias, coetáneas o posteriores. En palabras del editor francés de esta obra, la principal conclusión de este análisis es el sorprendente vigor que ciertos aspectos de la Leyenda siguen teniendo aún hoy entre algunas élites que prefieren ignorar la historiografía más rigurosa: España no fue ni peor ni mejor que las otras potencias europeas

C.S. Lewis's The Discarded Image paints a lucid picture of the medieval world view, as historical and cultural background to the literature of the middle ages and renaissance. It describes the 'image' discarded by later ages as 'the medieval synthesis itself, the whole organisation of their theology, science and history into a single, complex, harmonious mental model of the universe'
