El camino by Miguel Delibes( Book )

334 editions published between 1950 and 2019 in 9 languages and held by 1,961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Upon entering the Royal Spanish Academy in 1975, Miguel Delibes delivered an address which reclaimed El camino (1950) for the emerging Green movement. With a blend of hilarity, satire, pathos and tragedy, Delibes artfully explores the process of crossing boundaries in pursuit of maturity and social advancement, whilst also implying that real education is the unfolding of the human heart among friends and sweethearts within a shared social and natural space. This new annotated version of the text comprises an introductory essay discussing green issues, attitudes towards the Spanish peasantry under Franco, and the function of the novel's subtly orchestrated comedy. It also contains explanatory notes on the text, discussion topics and an extensive Spanish-English glossary. This edition is intended primarily for English-speaking students of Spanish literature and culture at school and university."--Publisher's website

Las ratas by Miguel Delibes( Book )

237 editions published between 1962 and 2018 in 9 languages and held by 1,286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although normally considered a work of social denunciation, the novel subtly delves into the mystery of good and evil. The protagonist is an eleven-year-old boy who possesses a strange wisdom and a no less singular kindness, all the more surprising considering the degenerate environment in which he was born (son of a paltry couple of stepbrothers who live in a cave) and the pettiness of his villagers. He comes to show himself as a prophet, when he seems to announce the salvation of the harvest by the North wind, and some character compares him to "Jesus among the doctors." It is, in short, an outbreak of purity amid so much misery, which resembles it to other protagonists of Delibes, innocent and hypersensitive, affected more than others by the evil of their peers but without catching it, like a curious spawn of original goodness. and the vice that, in Delibes's pessimistic vision, usually comes out triumphant, as the end of Las ratas shows

Aun es de día by Miguel Delibes( Book )

26 editions published between 1949 and 1991 in Spanish and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tras obtener en 1947 el Premio Nadal con "La sombra del ciprés es alargada", Miguel Delibes consolidó su prestigio al publicar "Aún es de día", una sombría historia realista que se revela, al mismo tiempo, como una hermosa y esperanzadora fábula. Su protagonista, Sebastián Ferrón, vive con su madre y con su hermana menor en una casa destartalada y fría de un barrio de la ciudad. Dependiente de ultramarinos, sueña con llegar a trabajar en unos grandes almacenes. Con su prosa limpia y escrutadora que alterna la descripción de ambientes enrarecidos con sutiles pinceladas del mejor humor, Miguel Delibes nos presenta una galería de personajes desengañados y brutales que viven entre la miseria, el alborozo y la sordidez. Frente a todos, Sebastián deja de ser el hombre feo y acomplejado para, remontándose sobre la opacidad de la tristeza, llegar, aún de día, a la luz

USA y yo reúne las crónicas de la estancia que Miguel Delibes hizo a Estados Unidos en los años sesenta y que publicó en el diario El Norte de Castilla. Este periódico le encargó al escritor que hiciera una serie de textos sencillos que pudieran ayudar a que los lectores, que por entonces vivían en la España franquista, pudieran familiarizarse con la sociedad americana, de la que tenían tan poca información. Hay descripciones de ciudades como Nueva York y Washington, análisis sobre la figura de J. F. Kennedy y también reflexiones acerca de la sociedad, que sorprendía a Delibes por cuestiones como el divorcio o la tradición protestante, tan distinta a la católica y latina, y lo maravillaba debido a su espíritu emprendedor, su liderazgo y su noción de la libertad
