The lost steps by Alejo Carpentier( Book )

512 editions published between 1953 and 2020 in 9 languages and held by 4,234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Translated into twenty languages and published in more than fourteen Spanish editions, The Lost Steps, originally published in 1953, is Alejo Carpentier's most heralded novel. A composer, fleeing an empty existence in New York City, takes a journey with his mistress to one of the few remaining areas of the world not yet touched by civilization-the upper reaches of a great South American river. The Lost Steps describes his search, his adventures, and the remarkable decision he makes in a village that seems to be truly outside history. Amazon review

A few years after its liberation from French colonialist rule, Haiti experienced a period of unsurpassed brutality, horror, and superstition under the reign of the black King Henri-Christophe. Through the eyes of the ancient slave Ti-Noel, "The Kingdom of This World" records the destruction of the black regime -- built on the same corruption and contempt for human life that brought down the French -- in an orgy of voodoo, race hatred, erotomania, and fantastic grandeurs of false elegance. -- From publisher's description

Reasons of State opens in Paris just before the outbreak of World War I. There, a plump Latin American head of state enjoys the city's pleasures, both carnal and aesthetic. A telegram announcing a coup calls him home to a radically different landscape. As Cuba-born Carpentier charts the dictators career--his increasingly severe reprisals, his country's passage from boom to slump, his confrontations with liberal rebels, and finally Marxist revolutionaries--an incisive portrait of political power emerges

La consagración de la primavera : novela by Alejo Carpentier( Book )

189 editions published between 1977 and 2018 in 11 languages and held by 1,140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ce roman, le dernier qu'Alejo Carpentier a pu achever, est l'aboutissement de son œuvre. Depuis des années, il composait, touche par touche, cette grandiose fresque historique qui devait retracer le vécu de toute une génération de part et d'autre de l'Atlantique, depuis la guerre civile espagnole jusqu'à la victoire de Fidel Castro. Deux couples sont les étoiles de cette oeuvre conçue comme un ballet : Vera, danseuse d'origine russe, et Enrique le Cubain, d'abord ; puis Calixto et Mirta, élèves de Vera à La Havane, lui est noir, elle est blanche. L'aventure personnelle des protagonistes s'inscrit dans l'histoire : la résistance cubaine à la dictature de Machado, qui oblige Enrique à s'exiler en Europe, la guerre d'Espagne, puis la Seconde Guerre mondiale, le régime sanglant de Batista, qui provoque la révolte armée de Fidel Castro et de ses guérilleros, la bataille de la baie des Cochons. Baroque à souhait par l'évocation des fêtes où les riches font congeler l'eau des piscines tropicales, lyrique et réaliste, le récit d'Alejo Carpentier est aussi une chronique de la vie culturelle de toute une époque : Picasso et les surréalistes, Jean Cocteau et Django Reinhardt nous sont contés de la même manière que les "bals nègres" de Paris et la folle urbanisation de Caracas."--Résumé de l'éditeur

Music in Cuba by Alejo Carpentier( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: A publishing event: the foundational work on Cuban music by a major figure of the twentieth century, now in English for the first time. In the wake of the Buena Vista Social Club, the world has rediscovered the rich musical tradition of Cuba. A unique combination of popular and elite influences, the music of this island nation has fascinated since the golden age of the son and that New World aural collision of Africa and Europe that made Cuban music the rage in Paris, New York, and Mexico beginning in the 1920s. Originally published in 1946 and never before available in an English translation, Music in Cuba is not only the best and most extensive study of Cuban musical history, it is a work of literature in its own right. Drawing on such primary documents as obscure church circulars, dog-eared musical scores pulled from attics, and the records of the Spanish colonial authorities, Music in Cuba sweeps panoramically from the sixteenth into the twentieth century. Carpentier covers European-style elite Cuban music as well as the popular worlds of rural Spanish folk and urban Afro-Cuban music. In a substantial introduction based on extensive original research, Timothy Brennan explores Carpentier's career prior to the writing of his novels. Looking especially at Carpentier's work as a music reviewer, radio producer, and musical theorist, Brennan suggests new ways of thinking about the role of Latin American artists in Europe between the wars, and the central place of radio and music-club cultures in the European avant-gardes
