Nada by Carmen Laforet( Book )

513 editions published between 1945 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 3,849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Loosely based on the author's own life, Nada is the story of an orphaned young woman who leaves her small town to attend university in war-ravaged Barcelona." "Residing amid genteel poverty in a mysterious house on Calle de Aribau, young Andrea falls in with a wealthy band of schoolmates who provide a rich counterpoint to the squalor of her home life. As experience overtakes innocence, Andrea gradually learns the disquieting truth about the people she shares her life with: her overbearing and superstitious aunt Angustias; her nihilistic yet artistically gifted uncle Roman and his violent brother Juan; and Juan's disturbingly beautiful wife, Gloria, who secretly supports the clan with her gambling. From existential crisis to a growing maturity and resolve, Andrea's passionate inner journey leaves her wiser, stronger, and filled with hope for the future."--Jacket

81 editions published between 1954 and 2005 in 5 languages and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La llamada incluye cuatro relatos de Carmen Laforet que comparten el mismo fondo de la posguerra española, donde la miseria afecta a todos por igual. El relato que da nombre al libro narra, con gran vibración humana y vital, la historia de un milagro moderno, ambientado en los bajos fondos barceloneses. «Un noviazgo» retoma, en clave casi esperpéntica, el tema del amor de una secretaria solterona por su jefe. «El último verano» nos descubre las mezquinas angustias y las pequeñas heroicidades de una familia pobre ante un hecho ineluctable y un deseo casi imposible. «El piano» nos introduce en otro tipo de pobreza, iluminada por la felicidad y ensombrecida, durante un corto instante, por la cercanica obscena de la riqueza. En todos ellos, como es habitual en Carmen Laforet, el estilo es magistral y sugerente

Carta a don Juan : cuentos completos by Carmen Laforet( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in Spanish and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Imposible ... ¡Que bella palabra, qué alta y qué brillante!, leemos en Carta a Don Juan . Es la misma voz de adolescente que poco antes, en "Fuga primera", ponía en boca de la Luna: ¡Nunca te atreviste a vivir, mujer, y tenías en tu corazón la fuente de la vida! Los primeros textos de Carmen Laforet, nunca antes publicados, vibran en su cándida osadía con toda pureza, el ansia de libertad y el don poético que informarán su obra futura. Este volumen consta de tres partes: la primera incluye siete cuentos que podría haber escrito Andrea, la protagonista de Nada, en la segunda nos reencontramos con los diez cuentos clásicos que, aunque nunca faltan en las antologías del género, no habían vuelto a reunirse desde hacía treinta años, y en la tercera, por último, se recuperan ocho cuentos más, que fueron su última contribución al género, abandonando a partir de 1955
La mujer nueva by Carmen Laforet( Book )

6 editions published between 1964 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paulina, una mujer de mediana edad, se separa de su marido, cuyo matrimonio es invalidado por las coincidencias contradictorias de la guerra civil y decide independizarse y demostrar que puede valerse por sí misma, acomodándose en un piso en Madrid y, si es necesario, haciéndose cargo de su hijo. Es una nueva vida, llena de desconocidos horizontes, descubre de nuevo el amor y mantiene una apasionada relación amorosa. Esta historia prodía parecer habitual en nuestra época pero La mujer nueva está escrita en los años cincuenta, en plena posguerra y en una etapa de gran represión franquista lo que hace de esta novela una precursora en España de una literatura feminista. --
