All fires the fire, and other stories by Julio Cortázar( Book )

273 editions published between 1966 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 2,416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All Fires the Fire offers eight great examples of the creative fullness that encompasses Cortázar's stories. From the exasperated metaphor of human relationships that is "La autopista del sur" through the masterpiece that is "El otro cielo," Cortázar once again paves the way to stories that are a must-read for lovers of the story genre in general. "La salud de los enfermos," "Reunión," "La señorita Cora," "La isla a mediodía," "Instrucciones para John Howell," and "Todos los fuegos el fuego" are a celebration of intelligence, passion, and genius
The winners by Julio Cortázar( Book )

245 editions published between 1956 and 2014 in 13 languages and held by 2,371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A group of random people receives notice that they have won a cruise. Once they become passengers onboard the Malcolm, they find themselves tangled in the web of a mystery that is as symbolic as it is ludicrous. The feeling of detachment from one's normal life, typical of vacation cruises, motivates the travelers to undertake the search to resolve the enigma
Cronopios and famas by Julio Cortázar( Book )

305 editions published between 1962 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 2,201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Long out of print and now reissued in paperback, Cronopios and Famas is one of the best-loved books by perhaps the greatest of Latin American novelists (author of Hopscotch and Blow Up and Other Stories). 'The Instruction Manual,' the first chapter, is an absurd assortment of tasks and items dissected in an instruction-manual format. 'Unusual Occupations,' the second chapter, describes the obsessions and predilections of the narrator's family, including the lodging of a tiger--just one tiger--'for the sole purpose of seeing the mechanism at work in all its complexity.' Finally, the 'Cronopios and Famas' section delightfully presents in the words of Carlos Fuentes, 'those enemies of pomposity, academic rigor mortis and cardboard celebrity--a band of literary Marx Brothers.' As the Saturday Review remarked: 'Each page of Cronopios and Famas sparkles with vivid satire that goes to the heart of human character and, in the best pieces, to the essence of the human condition'."--Back cover
We love Glenda so much and other tales by Julio Cortázar( Book )

155 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 2,126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Juegos / Julio Cortázar - v.2
Las armas secretas by Julio Cortázar( Book )

304 editions published between 1959 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 1,941 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Con el título de Las armas secretas, Cortázar publicó éste y cuatro relatos más: Cartas de mamá, Los buenos servicios, Las babas del diablo y El perseguidor. Entre ellos destaca especialmente este último, que el propio autor considera como una bisagra que divide en dos lados toda su producción. Con él inaugura una nueva manera de sentir la realidad y de moverse en ella. Mediante análisis múltiples de la misma, desde y con el lenguaje, Cortázar se sumerge en una búsqueda antológica para llegar a una ordenación diferente de lo real, que no es exactamente ni fantasía ni retrato
A manual for Manuel by Julio Cortázar( Book )

153 editions published between 1973 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 1,780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This, Cortázar's great political novel, focuses on the political condition of Latin America. It is a controversial blend of his aesthetic searches and his interest in the revolutionary movements of those times. This manual for the child Manuel is a sort of collage of press clippings, and among other things it reveals torture techniques used by U.S. soldiers in the Far East and juxtaposes them to similar tortures suffered by Latin American political prisoners
Bestiario by Julio Cortázar( Book )

254 editions published between 1951 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 1,515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bestiario es el primer libro de relatos que Julio Cortázar publica con su auténtico nombre. No hay en estas ocho obras maestras ni el menor balbuceo ni resacas juveniles: son perfectas. Estos cuentos, que hablan de objetos y hechos cotidianos, pasan a la dimensión de la pesadilla o de la revelación de un modo natural e imperceptible. Sorpresa o incomodidad son, en cada texto, un condimento que se agrega al placer indescriptible de su lectura. Sus relatos nos desazonan porque poseen una característica muy rara en la literatura: se nos quedan mirando, como si esperaran algo de nosotros. Después de leer estos verdaderos clásicos del género, nuestra opinión sobre el mundo no puede seguir siendo la misma

74 editions published between 1979 and 2004 in 7 languages and held by 937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seven stories from Cortázar's volume Deshoras (see HLAS 48:5600). Useful afterword by Manguel places work in biographical, literary, and political context. Powerful, often fantastic narrations told from different points of view, compellingly translated by Manguel. Important contribution to Cortázar bibliography in English"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
La vuelta al día en ochenta mundos by Julio Cortázar( Book )

165 editions published between 1967 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 932 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En este collage donde se recorre un largo y variado itinerario con la misma liviandad que empleara Phileas Fogg en dar la vuelta al planeta, Julio Cortázar vuela, navega y camina hacia escalas tales como: Soliloquio ante una hoguera, Para llegar a Lezama Lima, De la seriedad de los velorios, Grave problema argentino: querido amigo, estimado o el nombre a secas, Jack the Ripper Blues, Del sentimiento de no estar del todo, Julios en acción y muchas más que hacen un recorrido diverso y excitante."--Back cover
Final exam by Julio Cortázar( Book )

65 editions published between 1950 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 901 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this "allegorical, bitter, and melancholy farewell to an Argentina from which [the author] was about to be permanently self-exiled," Cortázar tells the story of Juan and Clara who should be studying for their exam, but instead they're wandering through the city of Buenos Aires, "trailed by the mysterious Abel, apparently a former lover of Clara's."--Jacket
62 : a model kit by Julio Cortázar( Book )

18 editions published between 1972 and 2000 in English and Spanish and held by 897 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As one of the main characters, the intellectual Juan, puts it: to one person the City might appear as Paris, to another it might be where one goes upon getting out of bed in Barcelona; to another it might appear as a beer hall in Oslo. This cityscape, as Carlos Fuentes describes it, "seems drawn up by the Marx Brothers with an assist from Bela Lugosi!"
Octaedro by Julio Cortázar( Book )

88 editions published between 1974 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oktaeder ingår i samlingsvolymen Samlade noveller av Julio Cortázar. Den argentinske mästaren Julio Cortázar använde språket för att skapa frihet och utrymme åt människan i en tid då han upplevde att hennes handlingsutrymme krympte mer och mer. Med sina fantasifyllda och absurda berättelser lade han också grunden till en egen litterär tradition i ett Latinamerika som länge varit beroende av europeiska förebilder. För första gången samlas nu alla Cortázars noveller på svenska, i två volymer. Julio Cortázar föddes i Bryssel 1914 och dog i Paris 1984. Vid fyra års ålder återvände han och hans argentinska familj till hemlandet. 1951 lämnade han åter Argentina i protest mot Peróns styre, och bosatte sig i Frankrike, där han bland annat arbetade som översättare. Under senare delen av sitt liv engagerade han sig politiskt och stödde både Castros revolution och Sandinistastyret i Nicaragua. Pressröster: "Det är en i ordets bästa bemärkelse sagolik upplevelse att läsa Julio Cortázars noveller. Närmast lika sagolik är förlaget Modernistas bedrift att ge ut allt han skrev i novellväg i två tjocka volymer, sammanlagt 1 144 sidor." Gunder Andersson, Aftonbladet [Publit]
Ultimo round by Julio Cortázar( Book )

138 editions published between 1969 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edición facsimilar del segundo de los libros-almanaque de Julio Cortázar, publicado por primera vez en México en 1969 y diseñado por Julio Silva. Cortázar se respondía a sí mismo en una autoentrevista sobre el contenido: "... en Último round hay un 'Homenaje a Alain Resnais' que se puede leer permutatoriamente, lo que modifica cada vez el sentido al mismo tiempo que conserva el clima inicial de 'L’année dernière à Marienbad'. Hay también una despedida a Teodoro W. Adorno, que se ha convertido al catolicismo; hay varios cuentos, largos y cortos, hay una especie de diario de un día de vida en mi aldea provenzal de Saignon. Hay una defensa de Salvador Dalí (¡oh!); hay un examen general de los problemas del erotismo en la expresión literaria latinoamericana; hay un ensayo sobre el cuento breve y sus alrededores, cuestión que me sigue preocupando y sobre la cual no se ha escrito gran cosa. ¿Te bastan esos botones, o necesitás todo el costurero?"
Masterworks of Latin American short fiction : eight novellas by Cass Canfield( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 723 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Translations of works by eminent writers (Cabrera Infante, Carpentier, Cortázar, García Márquez, Guimarães Rosa, Felisberto Hernández, Mutis, Ana Lydia Vega) reprinted from previous editions. Accomplished, excellent translators in all cases. Strong locating introduction by Stavans describes trajectory of novella in Latin America, historical antecedents, and current practices. Short bio-bibliographies of authors. Unusual volume for its varied selection of writers"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
