The poem of the Cid by Cid( Book )

18 editions published between 1957 and 2006 in English and held by 928 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Students of Spanish literature have long been familiar with this 800-year-old epic, which details the legendary exploits of the soldier-adventurer Ruy Diaz of Bivar, el Cid, and his part in the long struggle between Christianity and Islam. This epic poem recounts of the adventures of el Cid, his peerless steed, Babieca, and of his two famous swords, Colada and Tizon; of his wife, Doña Ximena, and his two daughters, Doña Elvira and Doña Sol, who find sanctuary with Abbot Don Sancho in the monastery of San Pedro de Cardeña during the Cid's exile; and of the despicable and black-hearted princes of Carrion, Diego and Fernando Gonzalez

Two novels of Mexico by Mariano Azuela( Book )

5 editions published between 1956 and 1972 in English and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1910, in a still relatively tranquil world, the Mexican revolution exploded--the sinister quiet of the Diaz dictatorship was broken by Villa and Zapata and their avenging mobs of peons and vaqueros. Mariano Azuela, most famous Mexican author of his day, was a doctor in Villa's army. Taking refuge in El Paso after Villa's defeat, he wrote a series of poignant sketches, together with the full-length novel, The Underdogs, which is considered a masterpiece of Hispanic American literature. The Flies and The Bosses, two remarkable vignettes of the revolution (here translated into English for the first time) were written in hot anger, direct from life; they show Azuela as a skeptic and realist who was nevertheless full of charity for his troubled people.--Cover
