ESTUCHE ROBISON CRUSOE Y NUEVAS AVENTURAS DE ROBINSON CRUSOE (2 V OLS.)
Fecha Lanzamiento: 09/01/2012
EDHASA, 2012

Resumen del libro

La historia editorial de Robinson Crusoe estuvo marcada desde el primer momento por un espectacular éxito de ventas y por la forma más indigna de piratería, sucediéndose las ediciones mutiladas, abreviadas, infantilizadas y desvirtuadoras de lo que la crítica considera la primera gran novela de la literatura inglesa. La his toria del mítico personaje de Defoe, admirada por escritores como Coleridge, Edgar Allan Poe, Virginia Woolf o James Joyce y punto de partida para obras de artistas tan dispares como Wilkie Collins, Michel Tournier, Luis Buñuel o J.M. Coetzee, se presenta ahora por primera vez en español en su versión íntegra y completa, lo que permitirá al lector, más allá de disfrutar de su carácter de gran novela de aventuras, acceder a lo que Enrique de Hériz describe como “Un mundo completo, dotado incluso de una arquitectura moral para la cual ninguno de los géneros literarios comunes hasta entonces le prestaba [a Defoe] planos válidos”. ...

Resumen del libro

"Sabe, oh príncipe, que entre los años del hundimiento de Atlantis y las resplandecientes ciudades bajo los oceános, y los de la aparición de los hijos de Aryas, hubo una edad olvidada en la que el mundo estaba cubierto de brillantes reinos como mantos azules bajo las estrellas. (...) Pero el más orgulloso reino del mundo e ra Aquilonia, que reinaba soberana sobre el soñoliento oeste. Y allí llegó Conan, el cimmerio, el pelo negro, los ojos sombríos, la espada en mano, un ladrón, un saqueador, un asesino , de gigantescas melancolías y gigantescos pesares, para pisotear con sus sandalias los tronos enjoyados de la Tierra".Este segundo volumen de Conan de Cimmeria incluye todos los relatos de Howard escritos en 1934, así como borradores y sinopsis de ideas, complementado todo con las excelentes ilustraciones de Gary Gianni. ...

Edgar Allan Poe es universalmente conocido como el primer maestro del relato y la literatura fantástica.

NOVELS 1969-1974 ADA; TRANSPARENT THINGS; LOOK AT THE HARLEQUIN S
LIBRARY OF AMERICA, 1996

Resumen del libro

Ada, or Ardor: A Family Chronicle (1969), the longest of Nabokov's novels, is a witty and parodic account of a man's lifelong love for his sister. All of his favorite themes and most characteristic techniques are woven into this culminating work of Nabokov's imagination. Transparent Things (1972) is a haunting novella of th e anguished life of Hugh Person, a young American editor and proofreader: his marriage, the murder of his wife, and his lone journey to uncover the truth about the past. With its multiple narrative voices and fusion of dream and memory, it is among the most formally experimental of Nabokov's works. Look at the Harlequins! (1974), Nabokov's final novel, concerns Vadim Vadimovitch N., a novelist very much like Nabokov himself. This ironic, intricate hall of mirrors, startling in its shifts of tone and off-key echoes of Nabokov's earlier books, often blurs the line between the worlds of reality and of literary invention. The texts of this volume incorporate Nabokov's penciled corrections in his own copies of his works and correct long-standing errors. They are the most authoritative versions available and have been prepared with the assistance of Dmitri Nabokov, the novelist's son, and Brian Boyd, Nabokov's distinguished biographer, who has also contributed notes and detailed chronology of the author's life based on new research. ...

THE GRAPES OF WRATH & OTHER WRITINGS 1936-1941
VV.AA.
LIBRARY OF AMERICA, 1996

Resumen del libro

Steinbeck, JohnThis second volume in The Library of America's authoritative edition of John Steinbeck features his acknowledged masterpiece, The Grapes of Wrath. Written in an incredibly compressed five-month period, the novel had an electrifying impact upon publication in 1939, unleashing a political storm with its vision of America's dispossessed struggling for survival. It continues to exert a powerful influence on American culture, and has inspired artists as diverse as John Ford, Woody Guthrie, and Bruce Springsteen. Tracing the journey of the Joad family from the dust bowl of Oklahoma to the migrant camps of California, Steinbeck creates an American epic, spacious, impassioned, and pulsating with the rhythms of living speech. The novel won the Pulitzer Prize and has since sold millions of copies worldwide. The text of The Grapes of Wrath has been newly edited based on Steinbeck's manuscript, typescript, and proofs. Many errors have been corrected and words omitted or misconstrued by his typist have been restored. In addition, The Harvest Gypsies, his 1936 investigative report on migrant workers which laid the groundwork for the novel, is included as an appendix. The Long Valley (1938) displays Steinbeck's brilliance as a writer of short stories, including such classics as "The Chrysanthemums", "The White Quail", "Flight", and "The Red Pony". Set in the Salinas Valley landscape which was Steinbeck's enduring inspiration, the stories explore moments of fear, tenderness, isolation, and violence with poetic intensity. The Log from the Sea of Cortez, an account of the 1940 marine biological expedition in which Steinbeck participated with his close friend Ed Ricketts, is a unique blend of science,philosophy, and adventure, as well as one of Steinbeck's most revealing expositions of his core beliefs. First published in 1941 as part of the collaborative volume Sea of Cortez, Steinbeck's narrative was reissued separately a decade later, augmented by the moving tribute "About Ed Ricketts". ...

NOVELS AND STORIES, 1932-1937 THE PASTURES OF HEAVEN; TO A GOD U NKNOWN; TOTILLA FLAT; IN DUBIOUS BATTLE; OF MICE AND MEN
LIBRARY OF AMERICA, 1994

Resumen del libro

"Deep down it's mine, right to the center of the world," says a Salinas Valley farmer about his land in John Steinbeck's To a God Unknown, and Steinbeck the writer could have said the same. From the very start of his career he evoked the landscapes and people of central California with lyrical intensity and unflinching fran kness. Through his intimate rendering of that place and those people, he expressed his abiding concerns: community, social justice, and the elemental connection between nature and human society. Here for the first time in one volume are Steinbeck's early California writings. In prose that blends the vernacular and the incantatory, the local and the mythic, these five works chart Steinbeck's evolution into one of the greatest and most enduringly popular of American novelists. The Pastures of Heaven (1932), a collection of interrelated stories, delineates the troubled inner lives and sometimes disastrous fates of families living in a seemingly tranquil California valley. The surface realism of Steinbeck's first mature work is enriched by hints of uncanny forces at work beneath. A sense of primeval magic dominates To a God Unknown (1933), as a California farmer reverts to pagan nature worship and begins a tortuous journey toward catastrophe and ultimate understanding. Steinbeck's sympathetic depiction of the raffish paisanos of Tortilla Flat (1935), a ramshackle district above Monterey, first won him popular attention. The Flat's tenderhearted, resourceful, mildly corrupt, ever-optimistic characters are a triumph of life-affirming humor. In Dubious Battle (1936) plunges into the political struggle of the 1930s, painting a vigorous fresco of a migrant fruit-picker's strike. Anticipating the collective portraiture of The Grapes of Wrath, Steinbeck poignantly traces the surges and shifts of group behavior. With Of Mice and Men (1937), Steinbeck secured his status as one of the most influential American writers. Lenny and George, itinerant farmhands ... Leer resumen completo

NOVELS AND MEMOIRS, 1941-1951 THE REAL LIFE OF SEBASTIAN KNIGHT; BEND SINISTER; SPEAK, MEMORY
LIBRARY OF AMERICA

Resumen del libro

After a brilliant literary career writing in Russian, Vladimir Nabokov emigrated to the United States in 1940 and went on to an even more brilliant one in English. Between 1939 and 1974 he wrote the autobiography and eight novels now collected by The Library of America in an authoritative three-volume set, earning a place a s one of the greatest writers of America, his beloved adopted home. The Real Life of Sebastian Knight, the first novel Nabokov wrote in English, is a tantalizing literary mystery in which a writer's half brother searches to unravel the enigma of the life of the famous author of Albinos in Black, The Back of the Moon, and The Doubtful Asphodel. Bend Sinister (1947), Nabokov's most explicitly political novel, is the haunting, dreamlike story of Adam Krug, a quiet philosophy professor caught up in the bureaucratic bungling of a totalitarian police state. Speak, Memory: An Autobiography Revisited (1951; revised 1966), Nabokov's dazzling memoir of his childhood in imperial Russia and exile in Europe, is central to an understanding of his art. The texts of this volume incorporate Nabokov's penciled corrections in his own copies of his works and correct long-standing errors. They are the most authoritative versions available and have been prepared with the assistance of Dmitri Nabokov, the novelist's son, and Brian Boyd, Nabokov's award-winning biographer, who has also contributed notes and a detailed chronology of the author's life based on new research. ...

NOVELS, 1955-1962 LOLITA; PNIN; PALE FIRE; LOLITA: A SCREENPLAY
LIBRARY OF AMERICA

Resumen del libro

Lolita (1955), Nabokov's single most famous work, is one of the most controversial and widely read books of its time. Funny, satiric, poignant, filled with allusions to earlier American writers, it is the "confession" of a middle-aged, sophisticated European emigre's passionate obsession with a 12-year-old American "nymphet ," and the story of their wanderings across a late 1940s America of highways and motels. Pnin (1957) is a comic masterpiece about a gentle bald Russian emigre professor in an American college town who is never quite able to master its language, its politics, or its train schedule. Pale Fire (1962) is a tour de force in the form of an ostensibly autobiographical poem by a recently deceased American poet and a critical commentary by an academic who is something other than what he seems. The texts of this volume incorporate Nabokov's penciled corrections in his own copies of his works and correct long-standing errors. They are the most authoritative versions available and have been prepared with the assistance of Dmitri Nabokov, the novelist's son, and Brian Boyd, Nabokov's award-winning biographer, who has also contributed notes and a detailed chronology of the author's life based on new research. ...

THE THIRD CRY TO LEGBA AND OTHER INVOCATIONS (SELECTED STORIES OF MANLY WADE WELLMAN VOL. I)
MANLY WADE WELLMAN
NIGHT SHADE BOOKS, 2000

Resumen del libro

Manly W. Wellman, Kenneth Waters Volume 1 (Third Cry to Legba and Other Invocations) collects Wellman's John Thunstone and Lee Corbet stories. These stories (written between 1943 and 1979) combine the mystical and horrific with traditional southern folk tales and legends. At the same time, these stories reveal a post World War 2 modernism that make them much more then pulp romanticism. The paranoia and cynicism of modern weird icons such as the X-files may well have had their genesis in the pulp musings of Manly Wade Wellman. Indeed the intensely driven, idealistic occult investigator John Thunstone could be a pulp/noir stand in for Fox Mulder. This work will be issued in a fine collector's hardcover state, with 24 illustrations. Edited by John Pelan, illustrated by Kenneth Waters. Contents: * Introduction * The Third Cry to Legba * The Golden Goblins * Hoofs * The Letters of Cold Fire * John Thunstone's Inheritance * Sorcery from Thule * The Dead Man's Hand * Thorne of the Threshold * The Shonokins * Blood from a Stone * The Dai Sword * Twice Cursed * Shonokin Town * The Leonard Rondache * The Last Grave of Lill Warren * Rouse Him Not * The Dakwa * The Beasts That Perish * Willow He Walk * A Witch for All Seasons * Chastel ...

A COMPANION TO GOWER
SIAN (ED.) ECHARD
BOYDELL & BREWER, 2004

Resumen del libro

Chaucer, Gower and Lydgate were the three poets of their time considered to have founded the English poetic tradition. Gower, like Lydgate, eventually fell victim to changing tastes but is now enjoying renewed scholarly attention. Current work in manuscript studies, linguistic studies, vernacularity, translation, politics, and the contexts of literary production has found a rich source in Gowers trilingual, learned, and politically engaged corpus. This Companion to Gower offers essays by scholars from Britain and North America, covering Gowers works in all three of his languages; they consider his relationships to his literary sources, and to his social, material and historical contexts; and they offer an overview of the manuscript, linguistic, and editorial traditions. Five essays concentrate specifically on the Confessio Amantis, Gowers major Middle English work, reading it in terms of its relationship to vernacular and classical models, its poetic style, and its treatment of such themes as politics, kingship, gender, sexuality, authority, authorship and self-governance. A reference bibliography, arranged as a chronology of criticism, concludes the volume.Contributors J.A. BURROW, ARDIS BUTTERFIELD, NATHALIE COHEN, E.H.
