Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse( Book )

75 editions published between 1950 and 2016 in Spanish and German and held by 184 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

El drama del niño dotado y la búsqueda del verdadero yo by Alice Miller( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La autora nos da la clave de los traumas en la infancia y su repercusión en la vida adulta: "La experiencia nos enseña que, en la lucha contra las enfermedades psíquicas, sólo disponemos, a la larga, de una sola arma: encontrar emocionalmente la verdad de la historia única y singular de nuestra infancia". Con un lenguaje claro y accesible, sin los tecnicismos y la retórica propios del especialista, Miller analiza las causas que pueden conducir a lo que se conoce como pérdida de identidad. Muchas de las personas que leyeron este libro descubrieron que, en su infancia, también ellas (como en los ejemplos aquí citados) habían reprimido sus necesidades afectivas y sentimientos más intensos para conseguir así el afecto y la aceptación de sus padres. Esta actitud, según la cual la persona se comporta como cree que se espera de ella, supone a la larga un aniquilamiento de la propia personalidad: ya no es ella misma, sino que adopta el papel que los demás quieren que represente
Aphorismen by Georg Christoph Lichtenberg( Book )

14 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in Spanish and held by 44 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 40 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

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

14 editions published between 1983 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 33 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
Das Gesamtwerk by Robert Walser( Book )

11 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Un personaje tan singular como Walser no hubiera podido inventarlo nadie", escribió Elias Canetti. Robert Walser nació en Biel, Suiza, en 1878. A los catorce años abandonó sus estudios para trabajar de botones. Se preparó tenaz y humildemente para ejercer varios oficios ;actor, librero, secretario, archivero, incluso asistiría a un curso para emplearse de mayordomo en un castillo de Silesia;, pero todos fueron un fracaso. Entre 1904 y 1925 publicó toda su obra poética y novelística, que entusiasmó a la crítica y a los escritores de lengua alemana más importantes de su tiempo; lo que no impidió siquiera un alivio en la absoluta precariedad en la que vivía. A partir de 1925, los síntomas nerviosos, de origen hereditario, se intensificaron hasta tal punto que, en 1933, ingresó voluntariamente en el manicomio, del que ya no saldría hasta el día de Navidad de 1956, cuando unos niños lo encontraron muerto en la nieve. El ayudante cuenta, con una ironía extraordinaria, la historia del ingeniero Tobler, que se separó de su mujer y sus cuatro hijos después de su ruina, a la que asistirá paso a paso, y de la manera más sumisa, su fiel empleado Joseph. Walser narra una experiencia autobiográfica, apenas alterada, después de trabajar seis meses en la casa del ingeniero Dubler. La novela se publicaría en 1908, siendo acogida por la crítica con el mayor de los entusiasmos

The appointment : a novel by Herta Müller( Book )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in Spanish and held by 24 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
