Lolita by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov( Book )

3 editions published between 1960 and 1987 in Swedish and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it was published in 1955, Lolita immediately became a cause celebre because of the freedom and sophistication with which it handled the unusual erotic predilections of its protagonist. But Vladimir Nabokov's wise, ironic, elegant masterpiece owes its stature as one of the twentieth century's novels of record not to the controversy its material aroused but to its author's use of that material to tell a love story almost shocking in its beauty and tenderness. Awe and exhilaration--along with heartbreak and mordant wit--abound in this account of the aging Humbert Humbert's obsessive, devouring, and doomed passion for the nymphet Dolores Haze. Lolita is also the story of a hypercivilized European colliding with the cheerful barbarism of postwar America, but most of all, it is a meditation on love--love as outrage and hallucination, madness and transformation
Arrow in the blue, an autobiography by Arthur Koestler( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in Swedish and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reúne los dos títulos de su autobiografía. La primera parte, titulada Flecha en azul, abarca un período comprendido entre 1905, año de su nacimiento en Hungría, y 1931, fecha en que ingresó en el Partido Comunista. Koestler lleva a cabo un profundo análisis de una época de convulsiones políticas en las que las ilusiones por la revolución rusa de 1917 se contraponía al horror del régimen de Hitler, que prosperaba antes la pasividad de la burguesía liberal alemana. La segunda parte, La escritura invisible, narra los años que van de 1931 a 1940, caracterizados por el desengaño del comunismo, a partir, sobre todo, del viaje que hizo por entonces a la Unión Soviética, donde conoció de primera mano las atrocidades de Stalin, algo que años después dio lugar a una inversión total de sus principios ideológicos. Koestler cuenta también su participación como corresponsal en la guerra civil española, donde fue condenado a muerte por Franco, aunque finamente fue canjeado. Su encarcelamiento en un campo de concentración y su llegada a Inglaterra en 1940, cierran este monumento a la memoria del siglo XX
