All fires the fire, and other stories by Julio Cortázar( Book )

308 editions published between 1900 and 2020 in 8 languages and held by 2,457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Todos los fuegos el fuego offers eight great examples of the creative fullness that encompasses Cortazar's stories. From the exasperated metaphor of human relationships that is "La autopista del sur" through the masterpiece that is "El otro cielo," Cortazar once again paves the way to stories that are a must-read for lovers of the story genre in general. "La salud de los enfermos," "Reunion," "La senorita Cora," "La isla a mediodia," "Instrucciones para John Howell," and "Todos los fuegos el fuego" are a celebration of intelligence, passion, and genius
The winners by Julio Cortázar( Book )

273 editions published between 1897 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 2,427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A group of random people receives notice that they have won a cruise. Once they become passengers onboard the Malcolm, they find themselves tangled in the web of a mystery that is as symbolic as it is ludicrous. The feeling of detachment from one's normal life, typical of vacation cruises, motivates the travelers to undertake the search to resolve the enigma
Cronopios and famas by Julio Cortázar( Book )

353 editions published between 1962 and 2018 in 9 languages and held by 2,309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Long out of print and now reissued in paperback, Cronopios and Famas is one of the best-loved books by perhaps the greatest of Latin American novelists (author of Hopscotch and Blow Up and Other Stories). 'The Instruction Manual,' the first chapter, is an absurd assortment of tasks and items dissected in an instruction-manual format. 'Unusual Occupations,' the second chapter, describes the obsessions and predilections of the narrator's family, including the lodging of a tiger--just one tiger--'for the sole purpose of seeing the mechanism at work in all its complexity.' Finally, the 'Cronopios and Famas' section delightfully presents in the words of Carlos Fuentes, 'those enemies of pomposity, academic rigor mortis and cardboard celebrity--a band of literary Marx Brothers.' As the Saturday Review remarked: 'Each page of Cronopios and Famas sparkles with vivid satire that goes to the heart of human character and, in the best pieces, to the essence of the human condition'."--Back cover
We love Glenda so much and other tales by Julio Cortázar( Book )

175 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 2,132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Passé maître dans l'art du fantastique, Cortazar bouscule l'ordre établi du temps et de l'espace. Ainsi, dans Coupures de presse, une femme participe à une scène de violence dont elle trouvera le récit dans le journal du lendemain et qui s'est déroulée à quelque mille kilomètres de là. Le climat d'angoisse qui sous-tend chaque page reflète évidemment celui de certains pays d'Amérique latine et notamment de l'Argentine. Parfois le problème des disparus est évoqué de façon directe, comme dans Graffiti.Chacune des dix nouvelles composant ce recueil est comme une plongée vers les replis de l'être, où les faux-fuyants et les prétextes n'ont plus cours. On ne revient pas indemne d'un tel voyage
62 : a model kit by Julio Cortázar( Book )

139 editions published between 1968 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 1,873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As one of the main characters, the intellectual Juan, puts it: to one person the City might appear as Paris, to another it might be where one goes upon getting out of bed in Barcelona; to another it might appear as a beer hall in Oslo. This cityscape, as Carlos Fuentes describes it, "seems drawn up by the Marx Brothers with an assist from Bela Lugosi!"
A manual for Manuel by Julio Cortázar( Book )

165 editions published between 1973 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 1,834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Cuban of our acquaintance describes Cortázar as "the best French writer in Spanish." Not only because he has the candor to set his fiction in Paris, where so many South American writers have found breathing room, but because he has a truly French feel for the miscellaneous, kitchen-sinky, birds-eye texture of dally life. In A Manual for Manuel, you'll meet Andres, Marco, Francine, Lonstein, Lucienne, Patricio, and Susanna: a mixed group of French intellectuals and "Argentines who don't know what they're doing" in Paris. Together they make up "the Screwery," a collective that's more "pataphysical" than strictly revolutionary - involved in projects as diverse as collecting a scrapbook of newspaper clippings for Manuel (Patricio and Susanna's baby son), guerrilla theatre in department stores, counterfeiting and currency smuggling, and, grandest of all, the kidnapping of a bigwig from a multinational corporation in return for the release of captured revolutionaries in Latin America. Cortázar's narrative, as we've come to expect, is totally fractured into digressions, essays, undifferentiated dialogue, philosophical meditation, Finnegan's Wake-ish pun-prose, letters, Telexes, etc. Even the book's big, wonderful action scene (this charming crew's disastrous kidnap attempt) is muffled under all the stylistic swaddling. Cortázar is often at his best here: writing about a large group of friends, making them individual yet coherent - smart people being confused together. But the book suffers by comparison with his earlier, more substantial Hopscotch; even in Rabassa's adept and sympathetic translation, Manuel seems to lack the intensity and rich ambience we look for in prime Cortázar."--Kirkus
Las armas secretas by Julio Cortázar( Book )

311 editions published between 1959 and 2018 in 11 languages and held by 1,795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce recueil de Julio Cortázar propose un panel de textes plus ou moins brefs, en équilibre sur le fil distinguant la fiction de la réalité, le rêve de l'état de veille. Le fantastique, décrit par Cortázar comme "l'autre côté des choses", est toujours en prise avec le réel, où il étend son empire, modifiant le temps et l'espace, les lois de la nature et la logique. Ainsi un homme ne sait-il pas ce qui se cache derrière son besoin d'observer ces poissons fascinants, les axolotls... tout comme ce photographe ne sait pas jusqu'où va le mener sa capacité à observer ceux qui l'entourent. De même cette biographie romancée du saxophoniste Charlie Parker intitulée L'Homme à l'affût qui nous propose le destin d'un homme qui recherche, dans sa quête métaphysique, une ouverture vers un ailleurs... mais lequel ?Voici onze nouvelles dans lesquelles le fantastique est quotidien, le réel hallucinatoire, et les héros traqués, à l'angoisse rancunière
Bestiario by Julio Cortázar( Book )

306 editions published between 1951 and 2020 in 10 languages and held by 1,612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

RESUMEN: "Bestiario" es el primer libro de relatos que Julio Cortázar publica con su auténtico nombre. Estos cuentos, que hablan de objetos y hechos cotidianos, pasan a la dimensión de la pesadilla o de la revelación de un modo natural e imperceptible. Sorpresa o incomodidad son, en cada texto, un condimento que se agrega al placer indescriptible de su lectura. Sus relatos nos desazonan porque poseen una característica muy rara en la literatura: se nos quedan mirando, como si esperaran algo de nosotros. Después de leer estos verdaderos clásicos del género, nuestra opinión sobre el mundo no puede seguir siendo la misma

231 editions published between 1956 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 1,563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

77 editions published between 1979 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 978 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seven stories from Cortázar's volume Deshoras (see HLAS 48:5600). Useful afterword by Manguel places work in biographical, literary, and political context. Powerful, often fantastic narrations told from different points of view, compellingly translated by Manguel. Important contribution to Cortázar bibliography in English"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
La vuelta al día en ochenta mundos by Julio Cortázar( Book )

185 editions published between 1967 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 977 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En este collage donde se recorre un largo y variado itinerario con la misma liviandad que empleara Phileas Fogg en dar la vuelta al planeta, Julio Cortázar vuela, navega y camina hacia escalas tales como: Soliloquio ante una hoguera, Para llegar a Lezama Lima, De la seriedad de los velorios, Grave problema argentino: querido amigo, estimado o el nombre a secas, Jack the Ripper Blues, Del sentimiento de no estar del todo, Julios en acción y muchas más que hacen un recorrido diverso y excitante."
Ceremonias by Julio Cortázar( Book )

111 editions published between 1966 and 2005 in 5 languages and held by 970 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fin d'un jeu: Des dieux sanglants et féroces surgis d'un passé lointain, l'impossible métamorphose d'un homme en bestiole aquatique, le public survolté d'un concert qui finit par dévorer le chef d'orchestre et les musiciens... et tant d'autres nouvelles où la réalité se craquelle et tend vers le fantastique.Les armes secrètes: Ce recueil de Julio Cortázar propose un panel de textes plus ou moins brefs, en équilibre sur le fil distinguant la fiction de la réalité, le rêve de l'état de veille. Le fantastique, décrit par Cortázar comme "l'autre côté des choses", est toujours en prise avec le réel, où il étend son empire, modifiant le temps et l'espace, les lois de la nature et la logique.

Final exam by Julio Cortázar( Book )

81 editions published between 1950 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 938 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this "allegorical, bitter, and melancholy farewell to an Argentina from which [the author] was about to be permanently self-exiled," Cortázar tells the story of Juan and Clara who should be studying for their exam, but instead they're wandering through the city of Buenos Aires, "trailed by the mysterious Abel, apparently a former lover of Clara's."--Jacket
Octaedro by Julio Cortázar( Book )

96 editions published between 1974 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 918 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oktaeder ingår i samlingsvolymen Samlade noveller av Julio Cortázar. Den argentinske mästaren Julio Cortázar använde språket för att skapa frihet och utrymme åt människan i en tid då han upplevde att hennes handlingsutrymme krympte mer och mer. Med sina fantasifyllda och absurda berättelser lade han också grunden till en egen litterär tradition i ett Latinamerika som länge varit beroende av europeiska förebilder. För första gången samlas nu alla Cortázars noveller på svenska, i två volymer. Julio Cortázar föddes i Bryssel 1914 och dog i Paris 1984. Vid fyra års ålder återvände han och hans argentinska familj till hemlandet. 1951 lämnade han åter Argentina i protest mot Peróns styre, och bosatte sig i Frankrike, där han bland annat arbetade som översättare. Under senare delen av sitt liv engagerade han sig politiskt och stödde både Castros revolution och Sandinistastyret i Nicaragua. Pressröster: "Det är en i ordets bästa bemärkelse sagolik upplevelse att läsa Julio Cortázars noveller. Närmast lika sagolik är förlaget Modernistas bedrift att ge ut allt han skrev i novellväg i två tjocka volymer, sammanlagt 1 144 sidor." Gunder Andersson, Aftonbladet [Publit]
Ultimo round by Julio Cortázar( Book )

160 editions published between 1900 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edición facsimilar del segundo de los libros-almanaque de Julio Cortázar, publicado por primera vez en México en 1969 y diseñado por Julio Silva. Cortázar se respondía a sí mismo en una autoentrevista sobre el contenido: "... en Último round hay un 'Homenaje a Alain Resnais' que se puede leer permutatoriamente, lo que modifica cada vez el sentido al mismo tiempo que conserva el clima inicial de 'L’année dernière à Marienbad'. Hay también una despedida a Teodoro W. Adorno, que se ha convertido al catolicismo; hay varios cuentos, largos y cortos, hay una especie de diario de un día de vida en mi aldea provenzal de Saignon. Hay una defensa de Salvador Dalí (¡oh!); hay un examen general de los problemas del erotismo en la expresión literaria latinoamericana; hay un ensayo sobre el cuento breve y sus alrededores, cuestión que me sigue preocupando y sobre la cual no se ha escrito gran cosa. ¿Te bastan esos botones, o necesitás todo el costurero?"

"Translations of works by eminent writers (Cabrera Infante, Carpentier, Cortázar, García Márquez, Guimarães Rosa, Felisberto Hernández, Mutis, Ana Lydia Vega) reprinted from previous editions. Accomplished, excellent translators in all cases. Strong locating introduction by Stavans describes trajectory of novella in Latin America, historical antecedents, and current practices. Short bio-bibliographies of authors. Unusual volume for its varied selection of writers"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
