Demasiada felicidad : relatos by Alice Munro( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 56 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
The progress of love by Alice Munro( Book )

10 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Se podría concebir El progreso del amor como unas crónicas de nuestro tiempo que, con gran sensibilidad y empatía, nos descubren los aspectos más intrínsecos de la vida cotidiana; toda una revelación de nosotros mismos -los lectores-, nuestras elecciones y nuestras experiencias. En su conjunto, son un tratado del amor, formado por historias íntimas y deslumbrantes que exploran sus distintas facetas--filial, platónico, sexual, parental e imaginario--en las vidas de personajes aparentemente ordinarios. Munro nos habla sobre cómo puede engañarnos la memoria y cómo nuestra percepción puede llegar a distorsionar la realidad. De esta forma empieza a entretejer los once relatos sobre el amor, la memoria y la vida que constituyen este volumen
Too much happiness : stories by Alice Munro( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Una joven madre recibe consuelo inesperado por la muerte de sus tres hijos, otra mujer reacciona de forma insólita ante la humillación a la que la somete un hombre; otros cuentos describen la crueldad de los niños y los huecos de soledad que se crean en el día a día de la vida de pareja. Como broche de oro, en el último cuento acompañamos a Sofia Kovalevski, una matemática rusa que realmente vivió a mediados del siglo XIX, en su largo peregrinaje a través de Europa en busca de una universidad que admitiera a mujeres como profesoras, y viviremos con ella su historia de amor con un hombre que hizo lo que supo por decepcionarla. Anécdotas en apariencia banales se transforman en las manos de Munro en pura emoción, y su estilo muestra estas emociones sin dificultad, gracias a un talento excepcional que arrastra al lector dentro de las historias casi sin preámbulos

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

5 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in Spanish and held by 24 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

India : una civilización herida by V. S Naipaul( Book )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in Spanish and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Trazada sin prejuicios ni sentimentalismo, la visión lúcida, tierna y sarcástica de la India que ofrece V.S. Naipaul no es el relato tópico o exótico al que el lector está acostumbrado, sino una representación viva de una sociedad compleja en la que la modernidad se teje sobre un fondo tradicional, un espacio lleno de aristas y puntos de vista diversos y contradictorios. El enfrentamiento entre musulmanes e hindúes, la transformaciones del papel de la mujer, la supervivencia de los antiguos rituales, la dinámica industria cinematográfica, la nueva literatura, los cambios en la institución familiar y la permanencia del sistema de castas, son aspectos que no escapan la aguda mirada de último premio de Nobel de literatura. Un testimonio de primer orden."--Cubierta trasera
Una zona de oscuridad : el descubrimiento de la India by V. S Naipaul( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 15 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."

Lives of girls and women by Alice Munro( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in Spanish and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Del Jordan lives out at the end of the Flats Road on her father's fox farm, where her most frequent companions are an eccentric bachelor family friend and her rough younger brother. When she begins spending more time in town, she is surrounded by women--her mother, an agnostic, opinionated woman who sells encyclopedias to local farmers; her mother's boarder, the lusty Fern Dogherty; and her best friend, Naomi, with whom she shares the frustrations and unbridled glee of adolescence. Through these unwitting mentors and in her own encounters with sex, birth, and death, Del explores the dark and bright sides of womanhood. All along she remains a wise, witty observer and recorder of truths in small-town life. The result is a powerful, moving, and humorous demonstration of Alice Munro's unparalleled awareness of the lives of girls and women
