Most widely held works by Peter Pettengill
The kingdom of this world by Alejo Carpentier ( Book )
1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this orgy of voodoo, race hatred, madness, and erotomania, Alejo Carpentier records the destruction of King Henri Christophe's black regime, which was built on the same corruption and contempt for human life that brought down French rule while embodying its same hollow grandeur of false elegance attained only through slave labor
Snow country by Yasunari Kawabata ( Book )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With the brushstroke suggestiveness and astonishing grasp of motive that won him the Nobel Prize for Literature, Yasunari Kawabata tells a story of wasted love set amid the desolate beauty of western Japan, the snowiest region on earth. It is there, at an isolated mountain hotspring, that the wealthy sophisticate Shimamura meets the geisha Komako, who gives herself to him without regrets, knowing that their passion cannot last. Shimamura is a dilettante of the feelings; Komako has staked her life on them. Their affair can have only one outcome. Yet, in chronicling its doomed course, one of Japan's greatest modern writers creates a novel dense in implication and exalting in its sadness
Alturas de Macchu Picchu = The heights of Macchu Picchu by Pablo Neruda ( Book )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
""The most important poet of the twentieth century-in any language."-Gabriel Garcia Marquez. 'The Heights of Macchu Picchu' is a poem of ascension. In its final passages, Neruda's poetry jumps from a personal hope to a global one; from a poetry dealing with the poet's heart to a poetry centered on humanity's struggles."-BBC "The Heights of Machu Picchu" has been called Pablo Neruda's greatest contribution to poetry-a search for the "indestructible, imperishable life" in all things. Inspired by his journey to the ancient ruins, Neruda calls the lost Incan civilization to "rise up and be born," and also empowers the people of his time. This new translation by poet Tomás Q. Morín includes an introduction by Morín and Neruda's Spanish original.I stare at the clothes and hands, the carvings of water in a sonorous hollow, the wall rubbed smooth by the touch of a face that with my eyes gazed at the earthly lights, that with my hands oiled the vanished planks: because everything, clothes, skin, dishes, words, wine, breads, went away, fell to the earth. Pablo Neruda (1904-73), one of the world's most beloved poets, was also a diplomat and member of the Chilean Senate. In 1970 he was appointed as Chile's ambassador to France; in 1971 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. Tomás Q. Morín is a poet and translator and teaches at Texas State University."--
