Demasiada felicidad : relatos by Alice Munro( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ten new short stories from the author tackle a variety of themes, such as love, loss, and redemption. In the first story a young wife and mother receives release from the unbearable pain of losing her three children from a most surprising source. In another, a young woman, in the aftermath of an unusual and humiliating seduction, reacts in a clever if less-than-admirable fashion. Other stories uncover the "deep-holes" in a marriage, the unsuspected cruelty of children, and how a boy's disfigured face provides both the good things in his life and the bad. And in the long title story, we accompany Sophia Kovalevsky, a late-nineteenth-century Russian é́migré and mathematician, on a winter journey that takes her from the Riviera, where she visits her lover, to Paris, Germany, and, Denmark, where she has a fateful meeting with a local doctor, and finally to Sweden, where she teaches at the only university in Europe willing to employ a female mathematician. Here the author renders complex, difficult events and emotions into stories that shed light on the unpredictable ways in which men and women accommodate and often transcend what happens in their lives

El comportamiento de sus padres, una pareja capaz de crear un buen ambiente familiar, las conversaciones con su abuela, una anciana que sólo vive de recuerdos, y una serie de acontecimientos hacen que Anastasia madure lentamente y tenga otra visión del mundo

The loss of El Dorado : a history by V. S Naipaul( Book )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in Spanish and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of Trinidad begins with a delusion: the belief that somewhere nearby on the South American mainland lay El Dorado, the mythical kingdom of gold. In this extraordinary and often gripping book, V.S. Naipaulhimself a native of Trinidadshows how that delusion drew a small island into the vortex of world events, making it the object of Spanish and English colonial designs and a mecca for treasure-seekers, slave-traders, and revolutionaries. Amid massacres and poisonings, plunder and multinational intrigue, two themes emerge: the grinding down of the Aborigines during the long rivalries of the El Dorado quest and, two hundred years later, the man-made horror of slavery. An accumulation of casual, awful detail takes us as close as we can get to day-to-day life in the slave colony, where, in spite of various titles of nobility, only an opportunistic, near-lawless community exists, always fearful of slave suicide or poison, of African sorcery and revolt. Naipaul tells this labyrinthine story with assurance, withering irony, and lively sympathy. The result is historical writing at its highest level. Focuses on the two widely separated historical situations--ill-fated attempts to exploit the island nation of Trinidad by the Spanish in the sixteenth century and the British in the eighteenth century--that called worldwide attention to the obscure island of Trinidad

1 edition published in 2010 in Spanish and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Munro evokes the devastating power of old love suddenly recollected, telling of vanished schoolgirls and indentured frontier brides and an eccentric recluse who, in the course of one surpassingly odd dinner party, inadvertently lands herself a wealthy suitor from exotic Australia. And Munro shows us how one woman's romantic tale of capture and escape in the high Balkans may end up inspiring another woman who is fleeing a husband and lover in present-day Canada

Una zona de oscuridad : el descubrimiento de la India by V. S Naipaul( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Una zona de oscuridad es un clásico fundamental de la literatura de viajes, probablemente el libro más elegante y apasionado que se haya escrito sobre la India. Una zona de oscuridad es el primer libro del premio Nobel V.S. Naipaul sobre la tierra de sus antepasados, fruto de su primer viaje al subcontinente indio en 1964. Desde el caos de Bombay a la belleza inmarcesible de Cachemira, de una sagrada cueva helada en el Himalaya a un templo abandonado en Madrás, Naipaul descubre una asombrosa variedad de tipos humanos, modestos funcionarios públicos y criados arrogantes; un sinuoso santón y un fascinado estadounidense en busca de la fe. Naipaul también expone su reacción personal y distinta al paralizante sistema de castas, a la aparentemente serena aceptación de la pobreza y la miseria, y el conflicto entre el deseo de autodeterminación y la nostalgia por la dominación británica."

"Sammar is a young Sudanese widow working as an Arabic translator in a British university. Following the sudden death of her husband, and estranged from her young son, she drifts - grieving, isolated and exiled from the warmth and colours of her home." "Slowly life returns when she finds herself falling in love with Rae, a Scottish academic. Twice divorced and a self-proclaimed cynic, to Sammar he seems to come from another world. Separated by culture and faith, but drawn to each other, this is a story about love, both human and divine."--Jacket
