The sibyl by Pär Lagerkvist( )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this powerful, poetic, and moving parable, the Wandering Jew of medieval Christian legend journeys to Delphi to consult the famed oracle of the pagans. He is turned away but not before learning that one of the most adept of the old priestesses, or sibyls, lives in disgrace in the mountains above the Temple. In her rude goat-hut he seeks the meaning of his disastrous brush with the son of God. She reveals that she, too, has been touched by the son of a god, a very different son, not quite human, born of her own body. He dwells with her as a constant reminder of the betrayal of her mystical and erotic union with the divine, her punishment, and--perhaps--her redemption

5 editions published between 1959 and 1986 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"«Lo que hace tan apasionantes los cuentos de Dagerman es la conceptualización de la ficción corta como un vehículo moral, con una capacidad para generar empatía, identificación y compromiso.» Steven Hartman, New York Review of Books. Este libro reúne los mejores cuentos del escritor sueco Stig Dagerman. Un tema central recorre toda su obra y toda su vida: la solidaridad como idea suprema, principio ético y compromiso responsable. Hijo de la clase obrera, desde niño pudo saborear la dicha de la fraternidad en medio de los estragos de la Gran Depresión; en algún lugar escribe que toda su infancia fue un interminable convoy de pordioseros. En este contexto merece especial mención su solidaridad con la España republicana y con los represaliados de la dictadura franquista. Su casa fue lugar de encuentro de numerosos antifascistas y miembros de las Brigadas Internacionales. Los veinticinco relatos que componen este libro reflejan los conflictos y angustias que definieron a toda una generación: la que fue testigo del último suspiro de una forma de vida eminentemente agrícola y que vivió los desastres de la II Guerra Mundial." -- Cubierta

6 editions published between 1970 and 1996 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the early history of the steppe nomad is shrouded in obscurity, The Empire of the Steppes brings to the general reader and the specialist the majestic sweep, grandeur, and the overriding intellectual grasp of Grousset's original. Hailed as a masterpiece when first published in French in 1939, and in English in 1970, this great work of synthesis brings before us the great people of the steppes, dominated by three mighty figures - Attila, Genghiz Khan, and Tamberlain - as they marched through ten centuries of history, from the borders of China to the frontiers of the West
