Joyce fans worldwide now celebrate 16 June as Bloomsday.Since publication, the book has attracted controversy and scrutiny, ranging from early obscenity trials to protracted textual"Joyce Wars."Ulysses stream-of-consciousness technique, careful structuring, and experimental prosefull of puns, parodies, and allusions, as well as its rich characterisations and broad humour, made the book a highly regarded novel in the Modernist literature.

Resumen del eBook

The gripping storyof two families whofollow their dreams andstruggle to overcometheir own destiny.Marian Miller, a NGO aid worker, is asked to write a report on the illegal Jewish settlements in Palestinian territory. In order to do so, she wants to listen to the two versions of the story, what leads her to a meeting in Is rael with Ezaquiel Zucker, an old man who, like many others, has a lot to tell and also, a secret to hide... Ezequiel will narrate his story like it were a massive jigsaw puzzle of many complex pieces and Marian will tell him the Arabic version. At the twilight of the 19th century, the Zuckers, banned from their country during the last tsarist period because of their Jewish identity, live horror and injustice in the flesh. They set out for the Promised Land and buy the lands of the Ziads, an Arabic family headed by Ahmed.The two men, Ahmed Ziad andSamuel Zucker, will establish a strong bond, a friendship that can overcome the religious and political differences, and that will be perpetuated throughout generations.With a background of threats, unleashed betrayals, and thirst for vengeance, the lives of the Zuckers and the Ziads weave a story full of stories in a great novel that hides many novels inside; a novel that offers a historical frieze that starts off at the end of the 19th century and culminates in 1948. A mosaic of treachery and revenge, of possible and impossible loves and of the great adventure that is living and surviving in a land marked by intolerance and outrage. A deep and moving chronicleof a family saga, Shoot, Im already dead is not only Julia Navarros best and most ambitious novel, but it is also,and above all, a novel filled with real people who are responsible for their own destinies, who will follow their dreams and fight for their lives. ...

Sur es la historia del viaje mas importante de Sir Ernest Shackleton, narrada por el mismo: la Expedicion Imperial Transantartica. Sintiendo que el orgullo de su patria, Gran Bretaña, estaba perdido al no haber sido el primer pais en alcanzar el Polo Sur geografico el noruego Roald Amundsen lo habia conquistado en 1911, Sha ckleton planifico un nuevo viaje con grandes ambiciones. No solo se proponia llegar al Polo Sur, sino que soñaba con atravesar a pie el vasto continente blanco, desde el mar de Weddell hasta el mar de Ross, una distancia total de 2900 kilometros.En los albores de la Primera Guerra Mundial, en 1914, zarpo la expedicion a bordo del Endurance. Las condiciones climaticas ese año fueron mas rigurosas que nunca, y su poderoso barco quedo atrapado en la inconmensurable presion de los packs de hielo. Sin poder hacer nada para salvarlo, los valientes tripulantes debieron abandonarlo y verlo morir aplastado en el abrazo implacable de las grandes masas heladas.Desde ese momento, Shackleton y sus hombres debieron luchar contra el clima hostil y resolver la forma de ser rescatados lo antes posible. Shackleton dio significativas muestras de coraje y de resolucion al enfrentarse a hazañas tan peligrosas como la navegacion de un mar embravecido con un pequeño bote de siete metros de eslora y a la marcha ininterrumpida de 36 horas a traves de las amenazantes montañas y glaciares de la isla Georgia del Sur.Sur no es una simple cronica; este libro es el testimonio de una de las mas grandes historias de supervivencia de todos los tiempos. ...
