The seven madmen : a novel by Roberto Arlt( Book )

185 editions published between 1929 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 1,533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A weird wonder of Argentine and modern literature, a crucial work for Julio Cortazar ("If there's one person in my country I feel close to, it's Roberto Arlt"), The Seven Madmen begins when its hapless and hopeless hero, Erdosain, is dismissed from his job as a bill collector for embezzlement. Then his wife leaves him and things only go downhill after that. Erdosain wanders the crowded, confusing streets of Buenos Aires, thronging with immigrants almost as displaced and alienated as he is, and finds himself among a group of conspirators who are in thrall to a man known simply as the Astrologer. The Astrologer has the cure for everything that ails civilization. Unemployment will be cured by mass enslavement. (Mountains will be hollowed out and turned into factories.) Mass enslavement will be funded by industrial-scale prostitution. That scheme will be kicked off with murder. "D'you know you look like Lenin?" Erdosain asks the Astrologer. Meanwhile Erdosain struggles to determine the physical location and dimensions of the soul, this thing that is causing him so much pain. Brutal, uncouth, caustic, and brilliantly colored, The Seven Madmen takes its bearings from Dostoyevsky while looking forward to Thomas Pynchon and Marvel Comics"--

Los lanzallamas; [novela] by Roberto Arlt( Book )

78 editions published between 1931 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Réédition, 1983 et 1991. Ce roman qui aura attendu plus de cinquante ans pour être traduit en français constitue avec sa première partie, ##Les sept fous##, ce que Julio Cortàzar appelle le chef-d'oeuvre de Roberto Arlt. Il propose sur un ton apocalyptique et souvent prophétique, une puissante image de Buenos Aires des années 1930, de sa faune marginale et ténébreuse. Les traducteurs des ##Sept fous## ont souligné la modernité d'Arlt, fils d'émigrés austro-allemands, et la difficulté à traduire son style sauvage, hâtif et précipité. Arlt est la figure inverse de Borges, un Jean Genet sud-américain. Le lecteur oubliera difficilement les personnages délirants, boucs émissaires d'une société corrompue, qu'Arlt le desesperado a mis en scène. [SDM]

El amor brujo by Roberto Arlt( Book )

52 editions published between 1932 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tras su apariencia de novelón decimonónico, El amor brujo cuenta la tragicomedia de un burgués, Estanislao Balder, que para superar su existencia anodina se lanza a una aventura amorosa tan dulzona como torpe. Sutil e imprevisible, hay que llegar hasta el final para calibrar el alcance de la crítica, cuya acidez desnuda al hombre fatuo, aparentemente satisfecho. En esta última novela de Arlt, más que en ninguna otra, se manifiestan las debilidades y los rencores que apremiaron a este François Villon de quilombo, como lo definió Cortázar, y destellan esas imágenes inapelables y delatoras que nos ponen frente a nosotros mismos y nuestras vergonzosas flaquezas

"Mathematica enables the user to solve a wide range of physics problems and provides an environment that allows the user to develop a greater intuitive understanding of physics. This book will aid the reader in using Mathematica for numerical, symbolic, and graphical calculations, and also will demonstrate the program's capability to animate two- and three-dimensional graphics. Tam's treatment of the subject is greatly detailed, and makes A Physicist's Guide to Mathematica an essential reference for anyone needing an introduction to Mathematica's applications to physics."--Jacket
