Resumen del eBook

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. ...

Resumen del eBook

"Ulysses"is one of the most important works of Modernist literature.The novel is approximately 265,000 words in length, uses a lexicon of 30,030 words and is divided into eighteen episodes."Ulysses"chronicles the passage of Leopold Bloom through Dublin during an ordinary day, 16 June 1904 (the day of Joyces first date with his future wife, Nora Barnacle). Ulysses is the Latinised name of Odysseus, the hero of Homers poem Odyssey, and the novel establishes a series of parallels between its characters and events and those of the poem (e.g., the correspondence of Leopold Bloom to Odysseus, Molly Bloom to Penelope, and Stephen Dedalus to Telemachus). 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. In 1998, the Modern Library ranked Ulysses first on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century. ... Leer resumen completo
