"In The Double Flame, Nobel Laureate Octavio Paz explores the intimate connection between sex, eroticism, and love - themes that have been a constant in his writing, from his first published poems to the great works of his maturity. Beginning with Plato's Symposium, he gives a short history of love and eroticism in literature throughout the ages: from the influence of the great cities Alexandria and Rome on the development of love poetry, to courtly love in Heian Japan and twelfth-century France, to love in modern novels such as Madame Bovary and Ulysses. Rich in scope, The Double Flame examines everything from taboo to repression, Carnival to Lent, Sade to Freud, Original Sin to artificial intelligence."--Jacket

The fallen by Juan Marsé( Book )

6 editions published between 1979 and 1994 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Escrita a finales de los años sesenta, Si te dicen que caí constituye una secreta y nostálgica despedida de la infancia, así como un cuadro a la vez sórdido y poético de la vida cotidiana durante el franquismo. Se trata, además, de una de las obras más personales de su autor. Al escribirla sólo pensaba en los anónimos vecinos de un barrio pobre que ya no existe en Barcelona; en los furiosos muchachos de la posguerra que compartieron con él las calles leprosas y los juegos atroces, el miedo, el hambre y el frío; en su propia infancia y adolescencia
