Mrs. Caldwell speaks to her son = Mrs. Caldwell habla con su hijo by Camilo José Cela( Book )

109 editions published between 1953 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 1,490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Well Mrs Caldwell is the English mother of Eliacim who has died a while ago (not clear but possibly in WW2 or at least between the world wars). She is writing a sort of diary of her thoughts as she ponders her relationship with her now grown son. The book has about 200 pages with about 200 short chapters, each with a descriptive heading. She is going mad and the basic suggestion (though not clear since this is definitely not a simple narrative story, but in my view) is because of her guilt in having had incestuous thoughts about him since he was a boy. Each chapter is basically a thought picture with little connectivity with the others as Caldwell brings to mind Eliacim’s possible loves, his career in the navy (he dies aboard ship and is buried at sea), objects that spark a memory, avoids but alludes to her inappropriate behaviours and so on. There is a possible thread of ideas associated with water, wood of coffins, sin, time and her own youth."--Goodreads
Vísperas, festividad y octava de San Camilo del año 1936 en Madrid; [novela by Camilo José Cela( Book )

159 editions published between 1969 and 2006 in 7 languages and held by 982 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A story of history as it happens, by turns confusing and startingly clear, echoing with news and rumors, defined by grand gestures and intimate pauses, the novel leads the reader into the ordinary life of extraordinary times. Beginning on the eve of the Spanish Civil War, San Camilo, 1936 follows a twenty-year-old student's attempts to sort out his private affairs (sex, money, career) in the midst of the turmoil overtaking his country. In vivid and richly textured prose that distinguishes Cela's work, the emotional reality of civil war takes on a vibrant immediacy that is humorous, tender, and ultimately transforming as a young man tries to come to terms with the historical moment he inhabits -- and hopes to survive

Nuevas andanzas y desventuras de Lazarillo de Tormes by Camilo José Cela( Book )

98 editions published between 1940 and 2019 in 4 languages and held by 833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Una curiosa novela picaresca contemporánea, basada en Lazarillo de Tormes. Publicada en 1944, la tercera novela de Camilo José Cela se sirve del molde del Lazarillo de Tormes para postular, en el desolado panorama de la literatura española de la inmediata posguerra, la imperturbable continuidad de sus cauces más genuinos, más propios y representativos. El mismo Cela decía que Nuevas andanzas y desventuras de Lazarillo de Tormes es un libro que señala una época de crisis, en la que se sintió impelido a probar sus artes en el bosquecillo umbrío de los clásicos y ensayar, sirviéndose de su viejo y buen amigo Lázaro, un castellano de raíz popular . Críticas: Cela ha vuelto a poner en marcha sobre los caminos de la Península al viejo héroe literario, con espíritu muy logrado e indudables aciertos en su reactualización. Alonso Zamora Vicente En Primer viaje andaluz asoma el mejor Cela. El Mundo Cela representa la escritura total, la escritura en acto, la escritura insomne, indeclinable y pugnaz. Juan Manuel de Prada Cela es a un tiempo tierno y cruel, lírico y bronco, áspero como una alimaña hambrienta y suave como un pájaro aterido. Es un heredero de la tragedia clásica, capaz de sumergirnos en las simas de la angustia y del dolor; y también un heredero de la picaresca española. Juan Manuel de Prada Uno de los escritores más radicales de todo el siglo XX. [...] Los relojes corren a favor de Camilo José Cela, segundo a segundo, minuto a minuto, hasta marcar la hora exacta de su eterna maestría. Alberto Olmos El último gran escritor español, creador de fábulas, de lenguaje, de palabras, con una capacidad prodigiosa para expresarse. Francisco Umbral Su obra trascenderá las anécdotas y hará que se escuche su voz imprescindible. Víctor García de la Concha Su escritura es un deslumbrante artificio multiplicado en páginas, para decirlo con un verso suyo, que alumbraron tan fuerte como si ardieran versos. El País Cela buscó la notoriedad, pero también se exigió a sí mismo una prosa con la sencillez de Baroja y el fulgor de Valle-Inclán. El País Su escritura es fruto de una personalidad arrolladora forjada en una España dividida, asustada y rota por una guerra civil y un porvenir en el que la pobreza y la picaresca también eran la sustancia de un ingenio que pasó a sus libros, en los que la capacidad de observación y un lenguaje implacable le dieron la vuelta a la narrativa española.

Journey to the Alcarria by Camilo José Cela( Book )

20 editions published between 1964 and 1998 in English and held by 768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cristo versus Arizona by Camilo José Cela( Book )

59 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in 6 languages and held by 684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christ versus Arizona turns on the events in 1881 that surrounded the shootout at the OK Corral, where Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, and Virgil and Morgan Earp fought the Clantons and the McLaurys. Set against a backdrop of an Arizona influenced by the Mexican Revolution and the westward expansion of the United States, the story is a bravura performance by the 1989 Nobel Prize-winning author. A monologue by the naïve, unreliable, and uneducated Wendell L. Espana, the book weaves together hundreds of characters and a torrent of interconnected anecdotes, some true, some fabricated. Wendell's story is a document of the vast array of ills that welcomed the dawning of the twentieth century, ills that continue to shape our world in the new millennium.--Publisher description

15 editions published between 1961 and 1964 in 3 languages and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En repetidas ocasiones C.J.C. se ha definido a sí mismo como un vagabundo; podríamos añadir que reúne como una quintaesencia de lo mejor de los vagabundos, una abierta curiosidad, fuerte sentido de la observación, memoria y una entrañable humanidad. En este inimitable libro de ensayos, C.J.C., nos ofrece, como una joya recogida de su largo peregrinaje, impresionantes retratos de las personalidades que ha tratado, desde las cutro figuras del 98 que dan título al volumen, con la larga e íntima relación con Pío Baroja, hasta la inolvidable relación con Solana y Marañón, o su fantástica visita a Picasso o la revelación de la clave de las personalidades de Miró o Tápies, etc., etc. Así van apareciendo uno tras otro Unamuno, Valle Inclán, Baroja, Azorín, Solana, Marañón , Miró, Picasso, J.R.J., Menéndez Pidal, Antonio Machado, Américo Castro, Joan Maragall, Vicente Aleixandre, Federico García Lorca, Dámaso Alonso, Gaudí, Josep Pla y Antoni Tápies. En una segunda parte, "Las preocupaciones", nos da ensayos vistos generalmente desde la luminoso Palma donde reside nomrmalmente el autor, sobre el tema eterno del paso del tiempo o contribución generosa a la problemática general española, sobre los españoles y lo español, o un toque profundo a la mentalidad burguesa de hoy, o una lúcida y sintética lección sobre el alma gallega a través de su poesía, etc., etc
