Caesar or nothing by Pío Baroja( Book )

108 editions published between 1910 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

His negation had no reference, --far from it, --to women, to love, or to friends, things where the pedantic and ostentatious scepticism of literary men of the Larra type usually finds its fodder; his nihilism was much more the confusion and discomposure of one that explores a region well or badly, and finds no landmarks there, no paths, and returns with a belief that even the compass is not exact in what it shows
The lord of Labraz by Pío Baroja( Book )

137 editions published between 1902 and 2004 in 5 languages and held by 995 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in rural Álava at the end of the 19th century, the novel, in a folletinesco tone, tells the story of the mayorazgo of the place Don Juan de Labraz, a blind man, whose life is altered with the return home of his sister Cesárea with whom he had fallen out of love after marrying the unscrupulous Ramiro, who was a lackey of the Labraz house in childhood and later welcomed as an adoptive son. The arrival of the couple alters the life of the town and in particular that of the Labraz home, where together with Juan reside their other sister, Micaela and little Rosarito, daughter of Ramiro and Cesárea. Ramiro, persisting in his contempt for the most basic ethical and moral principles, first seduces Marina, the innkeeper's daughter, and then consummated a passionate relationship with his sister-in-law Micaela, despite the serious illness suffered by Cesárea. Ramiro and Micaela accelerate the end of Cesárea's life and then flee the town, after stealing the relics from the church. Later Rosarito will also die after a painful illness that he endures thanks to Marina's loving care. The neighbors, outraged by the robbery and suspicious of the alleged relationship of Don Juan and Marina, pressure him to replenish the loot from his own insufficient fortune. The man, overcome by circumstances, decides to set fire to all his possessions and leave the place. He will return some time later to recover Marina and start a new life together away from those lands
The city of the discreet by Pío Baroja( Book )

172 editions published between 1900 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 981 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The City of the Discreet is set in the traditional Andalusia of the 19th century. This gentle parody with its vast gallery of characters demonstrates Baroja's powers of description and his subtle humor. The description of his Cordova and its environs are an invaluable guide to a recent, but now lost city

Second installment of the trilogy "The fight for life", in "Bad weed" Baroja continues to narrate the vicissitudes of Manuel with the same skinless style and tremendous. Here is the portrait of a society of busconas, scam artists and beggars, even more abandoned to their fate

Paradox, rey by Pío Baroja( Book )

45 editions published between 1906 and 1988 in Spanish and held by 829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With elements of the adventure novel, the utopian novel and even the philosophical story, in Paradox, Rey has built Pío Baroja an absolutely original novel universe. As in a great carnival fair, the reader here contemplates a utopia that, not for picturesque, ceases to be sobering. The city of Bu-Taca, with its roundabout in the middle of the square and the little wooden horses spinning desperately without rest, just as men, without object, without end, constitute the full image of that bitter farce of existence that is In short, Paradox, King
Camino de perfección : (pasión mística) by Pío Baroja( Book )

82 editions published between 1902 and 2015 in Spanish and English and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En esta novela tocada de misticismo y en la que se reiteran los contrastes entre vida y muerte, entre amor divino y humano y entre religiosidad y energía vital, Pío Baroja trazó, en la linea de las inquietudes regeneracionistas de los escritores más beligerantes de la época, una visión crítica de la realidad española, tanto de las clases madrileñas acomodadas como del mundo rural (Editorial Caro Raggio)

Zalacaín el aventurero; historia de las buenas andanzas y fortunas de Martín Zalacaín de Urbía by Pío Baroja( Book )

76 editions published between 1909 and 2017 in Spanish and English and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Es una de las novelas más populares de Pío Baroja. Apareció en Barcelona en 1909. La acción se desarrolla durante la segunda guerra civil, en las provincias vascongadas y Navarra. El autor, para escribirla, recogió testimonios de personas que habían intervenido en la contienda, empezando por su propio padre, que fue corresponsal de un periódico madrileño en Guipúzcoa de 1874 a 1876. Zalacaín es un tipo de héroe popular con el final trágico: dentro del esquema literario, muy antiguo, de los héroes juveniles. La acción, movida, desenvuelta y romántica. Baroja creía que esta obra era uno de sus libros más perfilados

La leyenda de Juan de Alzate by Pío Baroja( Book )

83 editions published between 1922 and 2006 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Basque medieval dialogue that constitutes a song to the land and the people around the Bidasoa. The hero, from a family as old as Mount Larrun, is a hard-working warrior, who embodies the essence of Basque man from the vision of a radical Baroja who turns his gaze, in this original and colorful story, to the closest thing, to an old town full of humor and wisdom; at the same time, it carries the ink in Jaun's mouth against the ills that religion caused in villages where nature and community life governed happy, austere and, perhaps, imaginary times
Las noches del Buen Retiro by Pío Baroja( Book )

68 editions published between 1934 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Había cumplido el autor ya los sesenta y vivía momentos de zozobra cuando planeó la escritura de esta obra. Como otras personas, al llegar a los límites de la madurez para entrar en los de la ancianidad, echó una mirada nostálgica a su juventud: a la época del 98, precisamente. No la veía entonces con tristeza, o, por lo menos, las tristezas juveniles le parecían más cargadas de sentido vital individual que las angustias políticas del momento. Centró la acción de su novela en los "Jardines", que ocuparon, hasta comienzos de siglo, el ámbito en que luego se alzó el edificio de Correos. Describió la sociedad madrileña que se congregaba allí durante las noches de verano y trazó retratos del natural y otros fantaseados, como siempre lo hace el novelista. El protagonista, personaje romántico, es mitad real, mitad imaginario. Las mujeres en torno a él también tienen perfiles reales en gran parte. Pero Baroja quiso, ante todo, exponer un caso, de los muchos que observó, de "juventud perdida", quemada en acciones descompasadas, dándole un fin más tajante que el que tuvo su modelo. Si la acción es la sal de la vida, hay que administrarla para que no vaya contra la vida misma. Sin embargo, Baroja, al igual que otros grandes autores de la época, también creía que hay cierta grandeza en el acto de quemar la vida, de perder la juventud y despreciar el mundo cotidiano de las gentes previsoras y sensatas. Y así esta novela, cargada de nostalgia, podría ser un canto a la "juventud perdida", precisamente

Unos años antes un amigo vizcaíno de Baroja le presto el manuscrito del diario de un capitán del siglo XIX que se apellidaba Abaroa. Hombre que se había visto envuelto en mil aventuras peligrosas, que en casi todas había salido malparado y que a pesar de todo volvía a reincidir en la trata de negros y otras igualmente peligrosas e inhumanas. Sobre Abaroa creo la figura de Embil y desarrollo otro personaje opuesto llamado Chimista
