Historia mundial de España( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in Spanish and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Una obra revolucionaria que nos cuenta la historia de España como nadie antes lo había hecho. Un recorrido por 127 episodios clave de la historia en los que España cambió el rumbo del mundo, y el mundo cambió el destino español. Esta es la historia de España a lo largo de todos los tiempos. Una historia que nos lleva desde los primeros homínidos en Atapuerca hasta los hechos más recientes acontecidos en 2017, y nos explica por primera vez la historia del país con una visión universal, a partir de los momentos clave de la historia en los que España cambió el rumbo del mundo, y el mundo cambió el destino español. España ha sido a lo largo de todos los tiempos una encrucijada riquísima de civilizaciones y de influencias, y todas ellas han conformado nuestra particular historia. El libro no pretende explicar una nueva historia, dado que no abandona la cronología ni el rigor histórico, pero sí se concibe como una obra diferente y original tanto por la forma en la que se presenta su contenido como por la intención con que está escrita. A partir de 127 episodios que toman como punto de partida una fecha, más de 100 historiadores-y por lo tanto multitud de miradas- presentan una selección de algunos de los hechos más relevantes de la historia de España con un objetivo común: el de explicar cómo estos hechos...--

The family of Pascual Duarte by Camilo José Cela( Book )

4 editions published between 1971 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reflects the crude reality of rural Spain in Franco's time. It is full of human power and rich in social insight. Cela writes with great detail, but still maintains simplicity
El camino by Miguel Delibes( Book )

4 editions published between 1970 and 2000 in Spanish and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Upon entering the Royal Spanish Academy in 1975, Miguel Delibes delivered an address which reclaimed El camino (1950) for the emerging Green movement. With a blend of hilarity, satire, pathos and tragedy, Delibes artfully explores the process of crossing boundaries in pursuit of maturity and social advancement, whilst also implying that real education is the unfolding of the human heart among friends and sweethearts within a shared social and natural space. This new annotated version of the text comprises an introductory essay discussing green issues, attitudes towards the Spanish peasantry under Franco, and the function of the novel's subtly orchestrated comedy. It also contains explanatory notes on the text, discussion topics and an extensive Spanish-English glossary. This edition is intended primarily for English-speaking students of Spanish literature and culture at school and university."--Publisher's website
Mrs. Caldwell speaks to her son = Mrs. Caldwell habla con su hijo by Camilo José Cela( Book )

2 editions published between 1958 and 1969 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Well Mrs Caldwell is the English mother of Eliacim who has died a while ago (not clear but possibly in WW2 or at least between the world wars). She is writing a sort of diary of her thoughts as she ponders her relationship with her now grown son. The book has about 200 pages with about 200 short chapters, each with a descriptive heading. She is going mad and the basic suggestion (though not clear since this is definitely not a simple narrative story, but in my view) is because of her guilt in having had incestuous thoughts about him since he was a boy. Each chapter is basically a thought picture with little connectivity with the others as Caldwell brings to mind Eliacim’s possible loves, his career in the navy (he dies aboard ship and is buried at sea), objects that spark a memory, avoids but alludes to her inappropriate behaviours and so on. There is a possible thread of ideas associated with water, wood of coffins, sin, time and her own youth."--Goodreads
School of the sun by Ana María Matute( Book )

2 editions published between 1979 and 1992 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the civil war, "distant and close to a time, perhaps more feared by the invisible", as a backdrop, First Memory, Nadal Prize 1959, narrates the passage from childhood to adolescence of Matia - the protagonist - and her cousin Borja. The two live in their grandmother's house in a naive and mysterious island world at the same time

El jarama by Rafael Sánchez Ferlosio( Book )

3 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the Spanish Civil War, the River Jarama was the scene of a bloody, month-long battle, which ended in a stalemate. The Republicans suffered about 25,000 casualties and the Nationalists 20,000. In the novel, set nearly twenty years later, the Jarama has become a favourite picnic spot for those wanting to escape the Madrid heat. The novel describes one boiling hot day in August. Various groups of people from Madrid - young and old, married and single - have gone down to the River Jarama to swim and to picnic. During the course of the day, they talk, flirt, get drunk, argue and, mostly, make their peace, and the novel carries the reader effortlessly from conversation to conversation, allowing us to eavesdrop on the characters' very ordinary and profoundly recognisable lives

El carrer estret by Josep Pla( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in Catalan and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Un veterinari de ciutat arriba al poble de Torrelles per exercir el seu ofici. Establert al carrer Estret de la localitat, i gràcies a la xafarderia de la seva cuinera, la inestimable Francisqueta, esdevé testimoni de la realitat quotidiana dels seus veïns. La narració, que segons l'autor és el simple resultat d'haver "passejat un mirall al llarg d'un camí", és construïda a través d'un pintoresc mosaic de personatges, la banalitat de la vida diària dels quals es converteix en matèria literària d'una qualitat extraordinària
