Most widely held works by Juan José del Solar
Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse( Book )

68 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in Spanish and German and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Siddhartha's life takes him on a journey toward enlightenment. Afire with youthful idealism, the Brahmin joins a group of ascetics, fasting and living without possessions. Meeting Gotama the Buddha, he comes to feel this is not the right path, though he also declines joining the Buddha's followers. He reenters the world, hoping to learn of his own nature, but instead slips gradually into hedonism and materialism. Surfeited and disgusted, he flees from his possessions to become a ferryman's apprentice, learning what lessons he can from the river itself. Herman Hesse's 1922 Bildungsroman parallels the life of Buddha and seems to argue that lessons of this sort cannot be taught but come from one's own struggle to find truth
Das Drama des begabten Kindes und die Suche nach dem wahren Selbst by Alice Miller( Book )

10 editions published between 1985 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La présente traduction est faite d'après l'édition allemande de 1994. Selon toute vraisemblance, la nouvelle traductrice a une approche différente pour présenter et traduire chacun des trois articles; autre possibilité, l'auteure aurait revu et modifié quelques éléments de ses travaux. Des questions variées sont abordées: 1. L'enfant doué; la recherche du vrai soi; le travail de psychothérapeute - 2. Dépression et grandiosité: deux formes du déni - 3. Le cercle vicieux du mépris.

Aphorismen by Georg Christoph Lichtenberg( Book )

14 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in Spanish and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Georg Christoph Lichtenberg es una de las personalidades más sólidas y sorprendentes de la cultura alemana. Profesionalmente fue científico, un físico que cultivó apasionadamente la física experimental, actividad en la que estuvo siempre guiado por su concepto del hombre como"ser indagador de causas". Descubrió las denominadas "Figuras de Lichtenberg", base de la moderna xerografía, fue pionero en el desarrollo del pararrayos, se ocupó de la astronomía, la eudiometría y la geodesia, y, sin embargo, ha pasado a la posteridad fundamentalmente como escritor y, tal vez, como el representante más importante y polifacético de la Ilustración en Alemania. Lichtenberg anotaba con regularidad en unos cuadernos observaciones, ocurrencias, reflexiones, anécdotas, propósitos, chistes, es decir, un material que cabe bajo la definición que se suele emplear para el término aforismo. De algunos de ellos proceden abundantes giros y locuciones coloquiales, originales suyas o que recibieron de él la aguda formulación con la que se usan. Esta edición ofrece una selección de aforismos, agrupados temáticamente
The hangman's daughter by Oliver Pötzsch( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in Spanish and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Germany, 1659: When a dying boy is pulled from the river with a mark crudely tattooed on his shoulder, hangman Jakob Kuisl is called upon to investigate whether witchcraft is at play in his small Bavarian town. Whispers and dark memories of witch trials and the women burned at stake just seventy years earlier still haunt the streets of Schongau. When more children disappear and an orphan boy is found dead, marked by the same tattoo, the mounting hysteria threatens to erupt into chaos. Before the unrest forces him to torture and execute the very woman who aided in the birth of his children, Jakob must unravel the truth. With the help of his clever daughter, Magdelena, and Simon, the university-educated son of the town's physician, Jakob discovers that a devil is indeed loose in Schongau. But it may be too late to prevent bloodshed. A brilliantly detailed, fast-paced historical thriller, The Hangman's Daughter is the first novel from German television screenwriter Oliver Pötzsch, a descendent of the Kuisls, a famous Bavarian executioner clan

Jakob von Gunten; a novel by Robert Walser( Book )

13 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Swiss writer Robert Walser is one of the quiet geniuses of twentieth-century literature. Largely self-taught and altogether indifferent to worldly success, Walser wrote a range of short stories, essays, as well as four novels, of which Jakob von Gunten is widely recognized as the finest. The book is a young man's inquisitive and irreverent account of life in what turns out to be the most uncanny of schools. It is the work of an outsider artist, a writer of uncompromising originality and disconcerting humor, whose beautiful sentences have the simplicity and strangeness of a painting by Henri Rousseau
El silencio de las sirenas : escritos y fragmentos póstumos by Franz Kafka( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in Spanish and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Es, sobre todo, a la hora de abordar una nueva publicacin̤ de los escritos ps̤tumos de Kafka cuando la edicin̤ crt̕ica de la editorial alemana S. Fischer se vuelve imprescindible.

The appointment : a novel by Herta Müller( Book )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in Spanish and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I've been summoned. Thursday, ten sharp." Thus begins one day in the life of a young clothing-factory worker during Ceaucescu's totalitarian regime. She has been questioned before; this time, she believes, will be worse. Her crime? Sewing notes into the linings of men's suits bound for Italy. "Marry me," the notes say, with her name and address. Anything to get out of the country. As she rides the tram to her interrogation, her thoughts stray to her friend Lilli, shot trying to flee to Hungary, to her grandparents, deported after her first husband informed on them, to Major Albu, her interrogator, who begins each session with a wet kiss on her fingers, and to Paul, her lover, her one source of trust, despite his constant drunkenness. In her distraction, she misses her stop to find herself on an unfamiliar street. And what she discovers there makes her fear of the appointment pale by comparison
