Most widely held works by Emma Calatayud
The abyss by Marguerite Yourcenar( Book )

31 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in Spanish and Esperanto and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En los tratados aquí reunidos, Borges habla de la esencia del tiempo, que se concreta bien en el mecanismo de una metáfora, bien en una refutación filosófica. El asunto es la coincidencia, la ocupación de un mismo lugar fí́sico o mental, la repetición, la versión. Así́, el ensayo sobre los traductores de Las mil y una noches tiene su eco en los sí́miles de la literatura germánica antigua; la doctrina de los ciclos halla su espejo en las enseñanzas de la termodinámica. Historia de la eternidad, cuya primera edición data de 1936, prefigura ya los contornos del Borges del medio siglo posterior
Alexis, o, El tratado del inútil combate by Marguerite Yourcenar( Book )

Red and Black : A New Translation, Backgrounds and Sources, Criticism by Stendhal( Book )

24 editions published between 1980 and 2005 in Spanish and Catalan and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Handsome and ambitious, Julien Sorel is determined to rise above his humble peasant origins and make something of his life-by adopting the code of hypocrisy by which his society operates. Julien ultimately commits a crime-out of passion, principle, or insanity-that will bring about his downfall. The Red and the Black is a lively, satirical picture of French Restoration society after Waterloo, riddled with corruption, greed, and ennui. The complex, sympathetic portrayal of Julien, the cold exploiter whose Machiavellian campaign is undercut by his own emotions, makes him Stendhal's most brilliant and human creation-and one of the greatest characters in European literature."-- P. [4] of cover
Oriental tales by Marguerite Yourcenar( Book )

22 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El mítico Oriente de la mano de una de las escritoras más importantes del siglo XX se descubre a través de la esencia de los cuentos legendarios de lugares como Grecia, Asia y los Balcanes. Un viejo pintor que desaparece en el mar que acaba de dibujar; un héroe griego que seduce a las mujeres y las olas, el destino de quien ve a las nereidas; el oscuro poder de la sombra, la diosa Kali, que se entrega a cualquier hombre y nunca sonríe; o el amor loco de una mujer por el asesino de su marido. Pasiones, secretos y sabiduría se suceden creando un clima donde no hay culpables ni víctimas, tan sólo la vida y su inmenso misterio

"During the space of a day in Rome in 1933, a ten-lira coin passes through the hands of nine people--including an aging artist, a prostitute, and a would-be assassin of Mussolini. The coin becomes the symbol of contact between human beings, each lost in private passions and nearly impenetrable solitude."--Publisher description

Le diable en tête : roman by Bernard-Henri Lévy( Book )

4 editions published between 1985 and 1994 in Spanish and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prix Médicis 1984. L'essayiste et philosophe français a voulu que ce roman "soit la continuation pour d'autres moyens de ##L'idéologie française##". Il a trop bien réussi. On a du mal à croire à son héros successivement pro-FLN, althussérien, terroriste palestinien (en 1972), membre des Brigades rouges (en 1979). Le projet était ambitieux: réaliser une fresque politique et intellectuelle qui couvrirait un demi-siècle et épouserait les fluctuations de l'intelligentsia française (de gauche)
Mujeres : mitologías by Erich Lessing( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in Spanish and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
