Los mejores libros jamás escritos Mucho más que una novela gótica, Drácula es un ejercicio literario excepcional. Jonathan Harker viaja a Transilvania para cerrar un negocio inmobiliario con un misterioso conde que acaba de comprar varias propiedades en Londres. Después de un viaje plagado de ominosas señales, Harker es recogido en el paso de Borgo por un siniestro carruaje que lo llevará, acunado por el canto de los lobos, a un castillo en ruinas. Tal es el inquietante principio de una novela magistral que alumbró uno de los mitos más populares y poderosos de todos los tiempos: Drácula. La presente edición incluye una detallada cronología y el prefacio del reputado catedrático y crítico Christopher Frayling, donde se analiza la figura de Stoker y las circunstancias que propiciaron la creación de Drácula. Asimismo, la perspicaz introducción a cargo del especialista Maurice Hindle reflexiona sobre los aspectos más polémicos en torno al origen del prototipo vampírico. «No había nadie por allí, excepto un hombre alto y flaco, de nariz ganchuda y barba en punta y entrecana. Tenía una mirada dura y fría y unos ojos de color rojo.»

Los mejores libros jamás escritos. «Goce yo el presente, disfrute yo ahora, y el diablo me lleve siquiera al morir.» Espronceda fue el más intenso de los poetas románticos españoles. Su obra, siempre de gran riqueza métrica, es torrencial, impetuosa, incluso desaliñada a veces, y está poblada por personajes marginales como el mendigo, el pirata o el verdugo, cuya libertad, más moral que material, exalta. Vehemente en política, sus poemas abundan en llamadas a la rebeldía social y cantos a personajes y acontecimientos de la historia liberal. Ante un personaje tan fuertemente comprometido con la política y la sociedad de su tiempo, resultan indispensables la contextualización histórica y la comprensión cabal de su obra. Por ello, el que fuera catedrático en las universidades de Sevilla, Valladolid y en la Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia José Fradejas Lebrero dotó a esta completa edición deuna introducción, unas actividades sobre la lectura y un preciso aparato de notas.

A deep study of the uneasy heart by one of the masters of the psychological novel, Journey into the Past, published here for the first time in America, is a novella that was found among Zweig’s papers after his death. Investigating the strange ways in which love, in spite of everything—time, war, betrayal—can last, Zweig tells the story of Ludwig, an ambitious young man from a modest background who falls in love with the wife of his rich employer. His love is returned, and the couple vow to live together, but then Ludwig is dispatched on business to Mexico, and while he is there the First World War breaks out. With travel and even communication across the Atlantic shut down, Ludwig makes a new life in the New World. Years later, however, he returns to Germany to find his beloved a widow and their mutual attraction as strong as ever. But is it possible for love to survive precisely as the impossible?

"A harrowing, humane, and very beautiful book.” —Garth Greenwell, author of What Belongs to You A searing dystopian vision of a young boy's flight through an unnamed, savaged country, searching for sanctuary and redemption—a debut novel from one of Europe's bestselling literary stars. A young boy has fled his home. He’s pursued by dangerous forces. What lies before him is an infinite, arid plain, one he must cross in order to escape those from whom he’s fleeing. One night on the road, he meets an old goatherd, a man who lives simply but righteously, and from that moment on, their paths intertwine. Out in the Open tells the story of this journey through a drought-stricken country ruled by violence. A world where names and dates don’t matter, where morals have drained away with the water. In this landscape the boy—not yet a lost cause—has the chance to choose hope and bravery, or to live forever mired in the cycle of violence in which he was raised. Carrasco has masterfully created a high stakes world, a dystopian tale of life and death, right and wrong, terror and salvation.

Los mejores libros jamás escritos. «Nos prohíben tener corazón para no correr el riesgo de que nos abucheen y perder la credibilidad.» La dama de las camelias es una de las novelas más populares de todos los tiempos. Adaptada al teatro y al cine innumerables veces, inspiró incluso una de las óperas más celebradas del XIX: La Traviata, de Giuseppe Verdi. La obra cuenta la imposible historia de amor entre Armand Duval, un apuesto joven de alta alcurnia, y Marguerite Gautier, una bella y angélica cortesana. Juntos tratan de desafi ar las rígidas convenciones sociales de su tiempo, entre el esplendor y la hipocresía del París de 1840. Frente a esta espléndida edición se halla el estudio introductorio de la escritora y crítica literaria Ariadna Castellarnau, que analiza los prejuicios y contradicciones a los que se enfrentaba la mujer del siglo XIX. Asimismo, presenta la cuidada traducción de Noemí Sobregués. Mario Vargas Llosa dijo... «Consigue, como si hubiera sido esperado ávidamente por un vasto público, llenar un vacío, satisfacer un apetito psicológico, moral o intelectual, que las más grandes realizaciones del arte o la literatura son incapaces de llenar.» Mario Vargas Llosa dijo... «Consigue, como si hubiera sido esperado ávidamente por un vasto público, llenar un vacío, satisfacer un apetito psicológico, moral o intelectual, que las más grandes realizaciones del arte o la literatura son incapaces de llenar.»

Sherlock Holmes The Complete Novels and Stories Volume I Since his first appearance in Beeton’s Christmas Annual in 1887, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes has been one of the most beloved fictional characters ever created. Now, in two paperback volumes, Bantam presents all fifty-six short stories and four novels featuring Conan Doyle’s classic hero--a truly complete collection of Sherlock Holmes’s adventures in crime! Volume I includes the early novel A Study in Scarlet, which introduced the eccentric genius of Sherlock Holmes to the world. This baffling murder mystery, with the cryptic word Rache written in blood, first brought Holmes together with Dr. John Watson. Next, The Sign of Four presents Holmes’s famous “seven percent solution” and the strange puzzle of Mary Morstan in the quintessential locked-room mystery. Also included are Holmes’s feats of extraordinary detection in such famous cases as the chilling “ The Adventure of the Speckled Band,” the baffling riddle of “The Musgrave Ritual,” and the ingeniously plotted “The Five Orange Pips,” tales that bring to life a Victorian England of horse-drawn cabs, fogs, and the famous lodgings at 221B Baker Street, where Sherlock Holmes earned his undisputed reputation as the greatest fictional detective of all time.
A Woman of Property

A Woman of Property

ISBN: 0698407342

Year: 2016-03-29
A Finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize A new book from a poet whose work is "wild with imagination, unafraid, ambitious, inventive" (Jorie Graham) Located in a menacing, gothic landscape, the poems that comprise A Woman of Property draw formal and imaginative boundaries against boundless mortal threat, but as all borders are vulnerable, this ominous collection ultimately stages an urgent and deeply imperiled boundary dispute where haunting, illusion, the presence of the past, and disembodied voices only further unsettle questions of material and spiritual possession. This is a theatrical book of dilapidated houses and overgrown gardens, of passageways and thresholds, edges, prosceniums, unearthings, and root systems. The unstable property lines here rove from heaven to hell, troubling proportion and upsetting propriety in the name of unfathomable propagation. Are all the gates in this book folly? Are the walls too easily scaled to hold anything back or impose self-confinement? What won't a poem do to get to the other side?
