Women who run with the wolves : myths and stories of the wild woman archetype by Clarissa Pinkola Estés( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in Spanish and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Within every woman there is a wild and natural creature, a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. Her name is Wild Woman, but she is an endangered species. Though the gifts of wildish nature come to us at birth, society's attempt to "civilize" us into rigid roles has plundered this treasure, and muffled the deep, life-giving messages of our own souls. Without Wild Woman, we become over-domesticated, fearful, uncreative, trapped." "Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph. D., Jungian analyst and cantadora storyteller, shows how woman's vitality can be restored through what she calls "psychic archeological digs" into the bins of the female unconscious. In Women Who Run with the Wolves, Dr. Estes uses multicultural myths, fairy tales, folk tales, and stories chosen from over twenty years of research that help women reconnect with the healthy, instinctual, visionary attributes of the Wild Woman archetype." "Dr. Estes collects the bones of many stories, looking for the archetypal motifs that set a woman's inner life into motion. "La Loba" teaches about the transformative function of the psyche. In "Bluebeard", we learn what to do with wounds that will not heal; in "Skeleton Woman", we glimpse the mystical power of relationship and how dead feelings can be revived; "Vasalisa the Wise" brings our lost womanly instincts to the surface again; "The Handless Maiden" recovers the Wild Woman initiation rites; and "The Little Match Girl" warns against the insidious dangers of a life spent in fantasy." "In these and other stories, we focus on the many qualities of Wild Woman. We retrieve, examine, love, and understand her, and hold her against our deep psyches as one who is both magic and medicine." "In Women Who Run with the Wolves, Dr. Estes has created a new lexicon for describing the female psyche. Fertile and lifegiving, it is a psychology of women in the truest sense, a knowing of the soul."--Jacket

"El hombre de las botas de goma entra en el ascensor sin que nadie lo advierta, a pesar del acre olor a humo y vino barato, y de su ropa raída. Está fuera de lugar en las oficinas de Drake & Sweeney, uno de los bufetes mś prestigiosos de Washington. Donde todo el mundo ansía poder y dinero, él sólo busca respuestas a una pregunta urgente e ingenua: quiere saber por qué unos tienen tanto y otros tan poco. Precisamente eso, no tener ni siquiera nada que perder, le proporciona el arrojo necesario para someter a interrogatorio a nueve abogados de la firma. Cuando todo termine, por trágico que sea el final, ocho de ellos olvidarán el incidente de inmediato. Al fin y al cabo, su profesión presupone el ejercicio permanente del olvido. Sin embargo, uno de ellos, Michael Brock, será incapaz de olvidar" (portada)
The innocent man : murder and injustice in a small town by John Grisham( Book )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La primera obra de no ficción de Grisham es un escalofriante thriller legal, basado en hechos reales. Narra la historia de un hombre que creyó haberlo perdido todo... Incluso antes de conocer el infierno. Hubo un tiempo en que Ron Williamson era una joven promesa del béisbol. Cuando los Yankees estaban a punto de ofrecerle la oportunidad de cumplir su sueño, una inesperada lesión puso fin a su carrera. Ron tuvo que renunciar a la Liga Americana y regresar a casa de su madre, en la pequeña y tranquila Ada, en Oklahoma. Abandonado a la autocompasión no podía imaginar que en realidad no conocía el verdadero significado de perderlo todo. En 1982 aparece el cuerpo de Debra Sue Carter, una joven camarera conocida de Ron, brutalmente violada y asesinada. Unas pruebas insustanciales bastan para llevarle al corredor de la muerte. Víctima de un proceso judicial tan torpe como injusto, solo haría falta una prueba de ADN para demostrar su inocencia... Para su desgracia, la ciencia tardaría unos años en estar de su lado. La crítica ha dicho... Grisham ha creado un thriller legal con el mismo suspense y ritmo vertiginoso que un best seller de ficción. The Boston Globe Una investigación meticulosa... Una historia absorbente. Entretainment Weekly La prosa reducida a lo esencial y la voz realista de Grisham hacen que sea una lectura verdaderamente tensa. People
