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 169 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.

Nadirs = (Niederungen) by Herta Müller( Book )

16 editions published between 1990 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Su infancia en una aldea rumana inspira a Herta Müller para pintar el crudo retrato de un mundo rural supuestamente idílico. "En tierras bajas", censurada tras su publicación durante la dictadura de Ceaucescu, se compone de quince historias narradas por una voz infantil que yuxtapone realidad y fantasía para dibujar un ambiente de continua opresión e incomunicación. "En tierras bajas", es la primera obra que publicó Müller, quien vive en Alemania desde la década de los 80
Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka( Book )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La transformacin̤ de Gregor Samsa en un bicho monstruoso, similar a un enorme escarabajo, es uno de los hitos de la literatura universal. En la historia de este joven que se vuelve un heraldo de la desgracia para su familia, un forastero en su propio hogar, vemos la quinta esencia del hombre alienado, una meditacin̤ angustiosa absurdamente cm̤ica sobre la culpa, la intrusin̤ y el aislamiento
Aphorismen by Georg Christoph Lichtenberg( Book )

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

Aufklärer, Rationalist, Skeptiker - viele Charakterisierungen treffen auf Lichtenberg zu. Was er in über dreissig Jahren für seine "Sudelbücher" zusammentrug, ist in jeder Hinsicht einzigartig, und bis heute überraschen die Fülle und Vielfalt des Gesammelten, das in der deutschen wie in der Weltliteratur seinesgleichen sucht. Viele von Lichtenbergs Notaten können als klassische Aphorismen bezeichnet werden, mit List und Eleganz pointierte Beobachtungen. In der Mehrzahl handelt es sich jedoch um Aperçus: Wahrnehmungen im eigentlichen Sinne des Wortes, Einfälle, Eingebungen, blitzartig auf- und einleuchtende Einsichten in die verschiedenen widerspruchsvollen Lebensbereiche des Menschen
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

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. Muchos de ellos se haba̕n publicado bajo tt̕ulos sugeridos por los editores, en algunos casos por el propio Max Brod, pero no eran ediciones ±cann̤icas" stricto sensu, puesto que la mayora̕ de estos textos no son ms̀ que apuntes para futuras obras, escritos por Kafka en sus cuadernos.

The fox was ever the hunter : a novel by Herta Müller( Book )

3 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in Spanish and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An early masterpiece from the winner of the Nobel Prize hailed as the laureate of life under totalitarianism. Romania--the last months of the Ceausescu regime. Adina is a young schoolteacher. Paul is a musician. Clara works in a wire factory. Pavel is Clara's lover. But one of them works for the secret police and is reporting on all of the group. One day Adina returns home to discover that her fox fur rug has had its tail cut off. On another occasion it's the hindleg. Then a foreleg. The mutilated fur is a sign that she is being tracked by the secret police--the fox was ever the hunter. Images of photographic precision combine into a kaleidoscope of terror as Adina and her friends struggle to keep mind and body intact in a world pervaded by complicity and permeated with fear, where it's hard to tell victim from perpetrator. In The Fox Was Always a Hunter, Herta Müller once again uses language that displays the "concentration of poetry and the frankness of prose"--As the Swedish Academy noted upon awarding her the Nobel Prize--to create a hauntingly cinematic portrayal of the corruption of the soul under totalitarianism"--
Jakob von Gunten; a novel by Robert Walser( Book )

10 editions published between 1983 and 2012 in Spanish and held by 26 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
Once a Greek by Friedrich Dürrenmatt( Book )

7 editions published between 1987 and 1999 in Spanish and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Greek factory bookkeeper seeks a bride, and his fortunes rise quickly

Una joven que trabaja en una fábrica de ropa durante la dictadura de Ceausescu ha sido citada para un interrogatorio.

Cásate conmigo , dice la nota, con su nombre y dirección. Sería capaz de cualquier cosa con tal de salir del país. En el tranvía que la lleva a su interrogatorio, sus pensamientos se pierden en el recuerdo de toda la gente que ya no está. Una vez más, la magistral pluma de Herta Müller, Premio Nobel de Literatura, nos desvela los horrores de la opresión que ella misma padeció
The Tanners by Robert Walser( Book )

10 editions published between 1985 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Tanners captures the lives of five siblings as they wander somewhat at a loss through life, and is Robert Walser's last major novel to be brought into English. The Tanner family's meetings, separations, quarrels, romances, employment, and lack of employment over the course of a year or two are the threads Walser weaves into his airy, strange, and brightly gorgeous fabric."--Jacket
