El Valle de los Caídos by Carlos Rojas( Book )

21 editions published between 1978 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 381 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."--
Azaña : novela by Carlos Rojas( Book )

57 editions published between 1973 and 2004 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 362 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

The garden of the Hesperides by Carlos Rojas( Book )

8 editions published between 1900 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 287 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

"The Garden of Janus is a mythical and magical journey into the depths of Cervantes's soul through dreams, memories, and enigmas. It is a narrative of a narrative, as the reader sees Cervantes's avatars transformed into the story of Don Quixote. The title refers to a mysterious garden in the land of Atocha, in old Madrid where Cervantes, as a child, would go for strolls with his younger brothers and sisters. The children stumbled upon this orchard, where they saw the statue of the double-faced Roman deity Janus, father of the Olympus." "Half a century later, and in the same enchanted garden, Cervantes encountered the ghosts of his own fictional characters, Don Quixote and Sancho Panza. The troubled ghosts, eager to confront their creator, informed Cervantes that while he was delaying the writing of their adventures, an impostor was writing a continuation of their story, leading them through the nightmare of a fake existence. From this point on, the novel aims to unravel a double mystery, both human and literary: What made Cervantes wait ten years to write the second part of his acclaimed novel, and who was Alonso Fernandez de Avellaneda, the plagiarist who dared to write a sequel for Cervantes's novel?"
