Albina and the dog-men : a fantastical novel by Alejandro Jodorowsky( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A darkly funny, surreal novel set in Chile and Peru, Albina and the Dog-Men is Alejandro Jodorowsky's sprawling modern myth in which sexual desire appears as a dangerous and generative force that mutates and transforms, unraveling identities and rending the social and moral fabric of a small town. Written with the stunning vision and cinematic flair he brought to his cult 1970s psychedelic freak-out films El Topo and The Holy Mountain, Jodorowsky turns the classic stranger-comes-to-town narrative on its head in his novel Albina and the Dog-Men. When two women--a beautiful amnesiac albino giantess and her protector, a leather-tough woman called Crabby--arrive in this South American desert town, Albina's otherworldly allure and unfettered sensuality turns men into wild animals. Chased at the same time by a clubfoot criminal, Albina and Crabby must fend off their aggressors before the town consumes itself in an orgy of lust and violence

El Topo; a book of the film by Alejandro Jodorowsky( Book )

19 editions published between 1969 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La película toma lugar en dos escenarios. La primera mitad, en un desierto sin nombre, comprende el viaje del protagonista, primero con su hijo y luego con Mara. Ella lo convence para que mate a los cuatro maestros del revolver. Cuando "El Topo" encuentra a un maestro, éste le enseña una lección, luego de lo cual se baten a duelo. Mara le dice a "El Topo" que debe ganar y que para ello debe hacer lo que sea necesario, lo incita a hacer trampa cada vez. El último maestro se mata a sí mismo, en un acto de despojo total, el más grande que puede hacer un ser humano, el de su propio cuerpo, demostrando la poca importancia de la vida material. La primera mitad termina con la traición a "El Topo" por parte de Mara y una extraña mujer que los acompaña y su frustrado asesinato. La segunda mitad de la película toma lugar años después, luego que "El Topo" es rescatado por una banda de marginados deformes, salvándolo de la muerte. La banda conduce a "El Topo" a su comunidad subterránea, donde él, estando en coma, medita acerca de las cuatro lecciones por varios años. Cuando despierta, "renace" con la ayuda de los marginados, y se va en busca de la libertad de los deformes desde su prisión subterránea. Con la ayuda de su novia enana y su hijo ya mayor, "El Topo" cava una salida de la cueva, viendo que los de su comunidad son asesinados por los habitantes de un pueblo cercano. Montado en cólera, "El Topo" los asesina y pone gasolina sobre sí mismo y se quema (inmola), una vez que ha aprendido todo lo que podía sobre la vida. El hijo de "El Topo" y la novia sobreviven de este apocalipsis y cavan una tumba para sus restos, la cual más tarde se transforma en una colmena llena de miel (símbolo religioso de un hombre sagrado). Se especula que "El Topo" se habría de reencarnar, a través de su novia embarazada, en una secuela aún no realizada
The way of tarot : the spiritual teacher in the cards by Alejandro Jodorowsky( Book )

23 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky's insights into the Tarot as a spiritual path Works with the original Marseille Tarot to reveal the roots of Western wisdom Provides the key to the symbolic language of the Tarot's "nomadic cathedral" Transforms a simple divination tool into a vehicle for self-realization and healing Alejandro Jodorowsky's profound study of the Tarot, which began in the early 1950s, reveals it to be far more than a simple divination device. The Tarot is first and foremost a powerful instrument of self-knowledge and a representation of the structure of the soul. The Way of Tarot shows that the entire deck is structured like a temple, or a mandala, which is both an image of the world and a representation of the divine. The authors use the sacred art of the original Marseille Tarot--created during a time of religious tolerance in the 11th century--to reconnect with the roots of the Tarot's Western esoteric wisdom. They explain that the Tarot is a "nomadic cathedral" whose parts--the 78 cards or "arcana"--should always be viewed with an awareness of the whole structure. This understanding is essential to fully grasp the Tarot's hermetic symbolism. The authors explore the secret associations behind the hierarchy of the cards and the correspondences between the suits and energies within human beings. Each description of the Major Arcana includes key word summaries, symbolic meanings, traditional interpretations, and a section where the card speaks for itself. Jodorowsky and Costa then take the art of reading the Tarot to a depth never before possible. Using their work with Tarology, a new psychological approach that uses the symbolism and optical language of the Tarot to create a mirror image of the personality, they offer a powerful tool for self-realization, creativity, and healing

Las ansias carnivoras de la nada by Alejandro Jodorowsky( Book )

14 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in Spanish and Russian and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

«Llevado por mi ardiente deseo de evadirme de la novela costumbrista, realista mágica o didáctica-social, con su aristotélica construcción en tres actos, comienzo-nudo-desenlace, cuajada de lluvias de flores, chamanes drogados, patriarcas con olor a queso de cabra, amores entre vejetes, putas santas, jergas indígenas, muertos que no saben que han muerto..., me dije: voy a presentar un héroe con el que el lector de ninguna manera pueda identificarse. No será uno sino tres. ¿Por qué no? Los teólogos nos han dividido a Dios en tres, Padre-Hijo-Espíritu Santo; tres ciegas con un solo ojo, órgano común que se lo pasan de cuenca a cuenca, son las Gorgonas; el hombre cabalístico consta de tres partes: Guff (el cuerpo), Nephesh (el alma) y Neshamah (el espíritu)... Peor aún: a los integrantes de mi heroico trío no se les verá el cuerpo ni la cara, porque irán cubiertos de ropa de pies a cabeza; habrán perdido la memoria; cada persona los captará de forma diferente. ¿Son estudiantes, ángeles, asesinos, viejos, niños? ¿Buscan o son buscados? ¿Saben que saben o no saben que no saben?» Alejandro Jodorowsky
