Uncertain glory by Joan Sales( Book )

73 editions published between 1962 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A classic Catalan work about love, family, and class during the Spanish Civil war. Spain, 1937. Posted to the Aragonese front, Lieutenant Lluís de Brocà i de Ruscalleda eschews the drunken antics of his comrades and goes in search of intrigue. But the lady of Castel de Olivo--a beautiful widow with a shadowy past--puts a high price on her affections. In Barcelona, Trini Milmany struggles to raise Lluís's son on her own, letters from the front her only solace. With bombs falling as fast as the city's morale, she leaves to spend the winter with Lluís's brigade on a quiet section of the line. But even on "dead" fronts the guns do not stay silent for long. Trini's decision will put her family's fate in the hands of Juli Soleràs, an old friend and a traitor of easy conscience, a philosopher-cynic locked in an eternal struggle with himself. Joan Sales, a combatant in the Spanish Civil War, distilled his experiences into a timeless story of thwarted love, lost youth, and crushed illusions. A thrilling epic that has drawn comparison with the work of Dostoyevsky and Stendhal, Uncertain Glory is a homegrown counterpart to classics such as Homage to Catalonia and For Whom the Bell Tolls"--

Madame Bovary : costumbres provincianas by Gustave Flaubert( Book )

27 editions published between 1981 and 2010 in Spanish and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Flaubert, al traspasar lo real a su novela, escoge los detalles más significativos, más evocadores, y les da con su varita mágica más precisión, mayor claridad; su estilo es como una lente de maravillosa transparencia que nos aproxima el objeto sin enturbiarlo ni deformarlo, al contrario, haciéndolo en cierto modo más real, de contornos más precisos, más netamente destacados sobre el fondo de lo que no interesa

Tirant lo Blanc by Joanot Martorell( Book )

32 editions published between 1954 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Translated by David H. Rosenthal Here is a recovered Renaissance classic, a Catalan novel of chivalry done into English for the first time by a gifted poet and translator. Cervantes singles out Tirant lo Blanc for very special praise in Don Quixote'in the scene in which the don's friends, eager to save his sanity, are making a bonfire of the romances of chivalry which have constituted his sole intellectual and spiritual nourishments. Cervantes makes a pointed exception of this work, putting into the mouth of a character the suggestion that the book deserves to remain in print throughout the ages. So it has'and now it can be read in David H. Rosenthal's lively English. Tirant lo Blanc presents the life of the Renaissance nobility: politics, lovemaking, and war. The hero participates in all these activities with a great deal of dash and good humor, there is much excellent conversation along the way, and by the time the story has come to its satisfying conclusion, the modern reader is convinced that life was quite as complex 500 years ago as it is today'and, for the European nobility, perhaps a good deal more entertaining

Madame Bovary: patterns of provincial life by Gustave Flaubert( Book )

12 editions published between 1963 and 2002 in Spanish and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La soñadora Emma, una joven de provincias casada con Charles Bovary, quien la ama pero es incapaz de comprenderla y satisfacerla, buscará la realización de sus sueños en otros amores, pasionales, platónicos..., pero ninguno de ellos logrará calmar su desesperada ansiedad y sus románticas inquietudes. La publicación de Madame Bovary (1856) provocó el escándalo de la burguesía francesa, esclava de mil prejuicios, y el proceso judicial que siguió contribuyó a un éxito editorial sin precedentes. Flaubert veía así cómo su obra servía más para satisfacer el morbo que para deleitarse en el caudal narrativo que contenía. Hoy, Madame Bovary es considerada el auténtico pórtico de la modernidad literaria
