Azaña : novela by Carlos Rojas( Book )

53 editions published between 1973 and 2004 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El autor penetra con libertad e imaginación en la historia y , sin vulnerarla, desvela matices y claroscuros que la simple crónica omitiría; llega así, por caminos de tensión poética, al nudo existencial de su personaje. Don Manuel Azaña, ya exiliado en Francia y en los últimos meses de su vida, rememora episodios de su acción política desde el drama de Casas Viejas hasta la retirada por lo Pirineos; evoca recuerdos de infancia y juventud, paisajes irremediablemente perdidos, reflexiones filosóficas, afanes literarios, amarguras del exilio; revive sus destempladas discusiones con figuras políticas como Abad de Santillán, Prieto, Companys, Bosch Gimpera, Rojo, Hidalgo de Cisneros, y sobre todo, Negrín; el tenso duelo dialéctico que libran Azaña y Negrín descubre el hondo conflicto íntimo de aquel intelectual escéptico, espectador lúcido y torturado a la vez que protagonista directo del desastre de la República
El Valle de los Caídos by Carlos Rojas( Book )

21 editions published between 1978 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rojas re-creates the nineteenth-century corridors of power and portrays the relationship between Goya and King Fernando VII, a despot bent on establishing a cruel regime after Spain's War of Independence. Goya obliges the king's request for a portrait, but his depiction not only fails to flatter but reflects a terrible darkness and grotesqueness. More than a century later, transcending conventional time, Goya observes Franco's body lying in state and experiences again a dark and monstrous despair."--

7 editions published in 1965 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The garden of the Hesperides by Carlos Rojas( Book )

8 editions published between 1988 and 1999 in Spanish and English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combining art and biography, the novel consists of alternating literary portraits inspired by works of Dali and Velazquez. As the title suggests, the loose story frame of the novel is that of the Herculean labor to find the twilight realm of the lovely nymphs of the Hesperides and, by conquering the dragon that jealously guards it, to plunder the garden of its golden apples of immortality. The contemporary fable casts the artist as the hero who, armed only with paintbrushes and inkwells, confronts the demons of his subconscious
The garden of Janus by Carlos Rojas( Book )

7 editions published between 1990 and 1996 in Spanish and English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rojas ponders whether the impostor, whoever he was, intended to destroy Cervantes, thus keeping him from writing his second part, or on the contrary, intended to provoke him into writing it. Was he acting alone or was he trying to protect someone else's identity? Rojas uses historical evidence and his own interpretation to create a novel of intrigue and mystery. He weaves his plot like a detective through intricate and surprising revelations about Cervantes and his contemporaries, Lope and Gongora, as he tries to unmask Avellaneda."--BOOK JACKET
