A ilustre casa de Ramires by Eça de Queirós( Book )

28 editions published between 1960 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Portrays Gonçalo Mendes Ramires, the latest in an aristocratic family that predates even the kings of Portugal. In the isolation of the gloomy ancient tower of Santa Ireneia, Gonçalo rehearses the feats of derring-do of an uninterrupted line of ancestors whose most recent contribution is himself, "a graduate who had failed his third year examinations at university.'' Hoping to win some small scholarly reputation and thus secure a political future in the capital, Gonçalo sets out to portray (a la Walter Scott), the adventures of one such ancestor. Installments recording the haughty courage and cruelty of his medieval forefather, Tructesindo Ramires, contrast with Gonçalo's rather banausic existence, his cowardice, his small acts of noblesse oblige and his questionable apotheosis." --

With great trepidation, Jacinto sets off with his best friend, the narrator, on a mammoth train journey.

Contos by Eça de Queirós( Book )

27 editions published between 1950 and 2008 in Portuguese and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"José Maria Eça de Queirós (Póvoa de Varzim, 1845-Neuilly, 1900) no fue tan sólo el autor de novelas geniales como El primo Basilio, El crimen del padre Amaro, La ilustre casa de Ramírez o La ciudad y las sierras, pues de su pluma salieron también algunos de los mejores cuentos portugueses. Estos relatos, reunidos aquí en versión íntegra (incluyendo textos hasta ahora dispersos en otros libros), son una prueba más que evidente de la versatilidad temática de Eça de Queirós, creador de un "estilo" único y de un universo narrativo plural. Son múltiples también sus "imaginarios": desde el mundo etno-fantástico de "El difunto" y "El tesoro", o el maravilloso bíblico "El suave milagro" o "El aya", hasta el irresistible mundo de las mujeres adúlteras de "En el molino" y la crítica de costumbres que confirió a su obra de novelista el fulgor de la universalidad."--Descripción de la editorial

28 editions published between 1960 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cousin Bazilio is a tale of sexual folly and hyprocrisy and vividly depicts bourgeois life in nineteenth-century Lisbon. Eca gives us a whole gallery of characters from Bazilio, the suave villain to Jorge, the smugly uxorious husband, from Luiza, the bored, empty-headed wife to Juliana, the plain, ailing maidservant desperate, by whatever means, to grab some of life's little luxuries, from Leopoldina, nicknamed 'the Ever-Open Door', to Joana the cook and her affair with the tubercular carpenter who lives opposite, and the voluminous Dona Felicidade who nurses an entirely unrequited passion for the unbearably pompous Acacio, who lives in concubinage with his much younger housekeeper, who is also having an affair."--BOOK JACKET

The Devil instigates... in an hour everything begins to change. A life of luxury and wealth begins for Theodore. But then he suffers from guilt, especially when he begins to have visions about the deceased Mandarin and about his family's current difficulties...
