The Exiles and Other Stories

The Exiles and Other Stories

Autor: Horacio Quiroga

Número de Páginas: 168

Tales of risk and danger, suffering, disease, horror, and death. Tales, also, of courage and dignity, hard work, and human endurance in the face of hostile nature and the frequent brutality of men. And tales flavored with piquant touches of humor and bemused irony. These are the stories of the Uruguayan writer Horacio Quiroga, here presented in an important compilation of thirteen of his most compelling tales, sensitively selected and translated by J. David Danielson. Author of some two hundred pieces of fiction, often compared to the works of Kipling, Jack London, and Edgar Allan Poe, Quiroga set many of his stories in the territory of Misiones in northeastern Argentina, the subtropical jungle region where he spent much of his life. Included here are stories from Los desterrados (1926) often said to be his best book, as well as others from Cuentos de amor de locura y de muerte (1917), Anaconda (1921), and El Desierto (1924). The publication of this selection marks the first appearance in English of all but two of the thirteen stories. Quiroga here presents a wide range of characters: parents and children, servant girls and prostitutes, landowners and lumber barons, foremen and...

Thérèse Raquin

Thérèse Raquin

Autor: Émile Zola

Número de Páginas: 347

In a dingy apartment on the Passage du Pont-Neuf in Paris, Thérèse Raquin is trapped in a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin, Camille. The numbing tedium of her life is suddenly shattered when she embarks on a turbulent affair with her husband’s earthy friend Laurent, but their animal passion for each other soon compels the lovers to commit a crime that will haunt them forever. Thérèse Raquin caused a scandal when it appeared in 1867 and brought its twenty-seven-year-old author a notoriety that followed him throughout his life. Zola’s novel is not only an uninhibited portrayal of adultery, madness, and ghostly revenge, but also a devastating exploration of the darkest aspects of human existence.

Papalotero

Papalotero

Autor: Martin Boyd

Teresa Jones’s dreams of flying contrast sharply with her dreary, earthbound life working as a filing-clerk in a CD store, and suffering the constant nagging of her academic parents, who are outraged at her stubborn refusal to go to college. Her best friend – the popular, successful and apparently happy college freshman Elena Kravchuk – has the perfect prescription for Teresa’s depression: she needs to get laid. When the two girls meet Miguel Angel Ramirez, a misfit Mexican immigrant who builds and flies kites for a living, Elena goes to work as match-maker to bring him together for a casual fling with her socially awkward, chronically depressed best friend. But rather than providing a one night stand, this papalotero will transform the lives of both girls in ways that neither one bargained for: Elena will confront the truth that her life is not as perfect as she so desperately wants people to believe it is, while Teresa will be challenged to give up her low self-esteem and Life Sucks t-shirts, and discover that the happiness she thinks is out of her reach might actually be just one small leap of faith away.

One Eagle's Journey to Glory

Autor: Gerardo Solórzano Garcia

Número de Páginas: 222

As the Mexican golden eagle is raised and prepared by its parents to go out south in search of a magical moment where a new nation would take place, after the accomplishment of this journey, some nasty snakes kill his parents in an effort to kill him to prevent this magical moment from happening. Having experienced this nasty event, the eagle swears revenge and takes a flight to the south. The snakes realize that this eagle is still alive and team up with a big flock of bloodthirsty scavengers and, flying on top of them, head south to stop this eagle. Parallel to this eagle’s journey, the Aztecs too have to head over to the south in pursuit of this magical moment where an eagle has to be on top of a nopal devouring a serpent. There is where their empire and Tenochtitlan would be built. Both know that this is a god’s mandate and they have to do it even at the risk of their lives, for if they fail, a spell could fall on them forever.

La divulgación de la ciencia pretende, dejando por el momento de lado el cómo, hacer accesible ese conocimiento superespecializado. No se trata de una traducción en el sentido de un traslado de un idioma a otro, sino de tender un puente entre el mundo de la ciencia y los otros mundos. Si aceptamos que es incuestionable la importancia de la ciencia, la importancia de tal comunicación no lo es menos, pues es el canal que permite al público lego la integración del conocimiento científico a su cultura.

Circle Of Darkness

Circle Of Darkness

Autor: Lindsey M. Mcguire

Número de Páginas: 408

From the beginning of time there have been stories about the existence of other worlds. Most believed that in such a vast universe Earth could not be the only inhabited planed. Perhaps there are other species akin to our own speculating on exactly the same theory of existence? There is a book of unknown origin older than any existing manuscript know to man and because of its uniqueness is heavily guarded. It is The Ancient Troneica with protectors known as High Lords from the Temple of Tekret. We will soon discover that we are not alone. Earth is one of seven plains that exist in our dimension. Under constant threat from an unimaginable evil that possibility has now become a reality. The battle will be fought in the shadows of San Francisco where the book has been located. The Darkness wants unity, pursuing its opponents relentlessly and without mercy to fulfill the Circle. The heavy burden of succumbing to a nightmare and surviving rests on the shoulders of Jason King and Lucy White. This is a journey of discovery and terror leading them towards a destiny that could take their very souls.

Cartucho and My Mother's Hands

Cartucho and My Mother's Hands

Autor: Nellie Campobello

Número de Páginas: 144

Nellie Campobello, a prominent Mexican writer and "novelist of the Revolution," played an important role in Mexico's cultural renaissance in the 1920s and early 1930s, along with such writers as Rafael Muñoz and Gregorio López y Fuentes and artists Diego Rivera, Orozco, and others. Her two novellas, Cartucho (first published in 1931) and My Mother's Hands (first published as Las manos de Mamá in 1938), are autobiographical evocations of a childhood spent amidst the violence and turmoil of the Revolution in Mexico. Campobello's memories of the Revolution in the north of Mexico, where Pancho Villa was a popular hero and a personal friend of her family, show not only the stark realism of Cartucho but also the tender lyricism of My Mother's Hands. They are noteworthy, too, as a first-person account of the female experience in the early years of the Mexican Revolution and unique in their presentation of events from a child's perspective.

Acercamiento metodológico a la traducción literaria con textos bilingües comentados

Autor: Álvarez Calleja María Antonia

Acercamiento metodológico a la traducción literaria con textos bilingües comentados está dividido en tres partes. Primera: Aspectos metodológicos, donde se estudian los distintos acercamientos a la teoría de la traducción, características de la traducción literaria, análisis textual, efectos estilísticos. Segunda: Estudios descriptivos de la traducción, cuyo propósito principal —según Gideon Toury— es describir y explicar los fenómenos que aparecen en la actividad traductora, comprobar las hipótesis y establecer los modelos que proporciona la teoría. Se incluyen ejemplos de análisis contrastivos entre TT y TO, sin reducirlos a un simple análisis, pues la comunicación también precisa del significado cultural, convenciones textuales y consideraciones pragmáticas. Tercera: Textos bilingües comentados, que incluye el texto original y la traducción de nueve relatos breves de conocidos autores norteamericanos: Kate Chopin, Henry James, F. S. Fitzgeral, E. A. Poe, Sara O. Jewett, Washington Irving, Sherwood Anderson, Hawthorne y Charlotte P. Gilman.

Howard Hill

Autor: Betty Larosa Larosa

Número de Páginas: 322

The exhausted Union cavalry company under the command of Col. Philip Creighton arrives at Howard Hill plantation where they find five frightened women living alone. Philip informs Caroline Howard, the widowed mistress of the plantation, that they are confiscating her home for a few days of rest. But those few days stretch into the nearly- ten month siege of Petersburg, Virginia. Watching Caroline cope with the stress of constant bombardments of the nearby city, the endless numbers of Union wounded arriving daily, and a mother-in-law who is slowly going mad, Philip feels compelled to provide her with sorely-needed food and necessities, as well as seeing to her safety from his own men. Shortly thereafter, he is seriously wounded, nearly fulfilling his wish to die in battle. Through Carolines care, he learns to trust again and at last finds all hes been seeking in life. After recovering his health, Philip again sees action where he suffers a severe concussion that leaves him temporarily blind. This blindness forces him to acknowledge at last his feelings for Caroline Howard. His war experiences transform Philip from bitter disillusionment to a completely different perspective of his...

The city of Mucenka is a shadow. Maria and Thomas flee to the interior of the forest, where they will create a beautiful family. One of his sons, Oscar, oblivious to everything on the other side of the splendid and leafy forest that circumscribes the lands of his parents, unawared of his past, will take a decisive step that will change the course of everything he longed in his life. Everything that his parents did not tell him, with the healthy intention of protecting him, was revealed against the family in an Oscar's slip. From that tragic moment, the young man had to fight for much more than survival. He struggled to breathe and to be able to think freely. Many efforts were useless and vain, but there was one that, always, was worth it, until the end: To learn.

In the title story, Lucinda hatches a clever plan to get her boyfriend back and is crushed when she ultimately realizes that it’s impossible to force a guy to love you. Like all young people, she ignores the advice of her mom and learns that lesson—and many more—the hard way. In this bilingual collection of ten short stories for young people, kids deal with both serious and humorous consequences after they ignore their parents’ suggestions and disobey rules. At a friend’s house on New Year’s Eve, Raymond plays with fireworks even though he promised his parents he wouldn’t. Kids on a track team search for a mysterious naked woman with embarrassing results. And two girls in a wax museum are in for a surprise when they ignore the signs about touching the figures. These short and accessible contemporary stories are alternately amusing and poignant as they explore issues relevant to today’s youth. Teens deal with everything from grandparents suffering from dementia to difficult customers at a first job. And in one story, a young girl grieves the loss of her baby, a miscarriage her mom calls a “blessing.” These stories highlight the emotional tailspins of living in a ...

En otra voz is the first Spanish-language anthology to bring together literature from the entire history of Hispanic writing in the United States, from the age of exploration to the present. The product of hundreds of scholars working with the Recovering the U.S. Hispanic Literary Heritage program over ten years, the anthology compiles for the first time scores of previously unknown works in the Spanish language written by Hispanics of diverse ethnic backgrounds and classes. It is the most comprehensive literary collection available in Spanish, spanning more than three centuries and including a broad range of genres. Organized chronologically into three sections which represent the three major manifestations of Hispanic culture in the United States Native, Exile, and Immigration, the anthology goes beyond the written tradition to also include oral literature: folk songs, tales, personal experience narratives, rhymes, etc. The anthology includes the political essays of revolutionaries and reactionaries, cul-tural elites and workers, academic creative writers and street poets, all reflecting the His-panic condition, past and present.

Beyond Intensity

Beyond Intensity

Autor: Ramon Vila

After years of traveling the world, searching for all life has to offer, Toni Martí realizes that his youthful curiosity has soured into stagnation, depression, and drug addiction. While stumbling through what remains of his life, he commits a crime and is sentenced to community service at a nursing home. Forced to comply, he forms a grudging relationship with Juan, an octogenarian whose family long ago abandoned him, and whose day-to-day life seems undisturbed by change. He also encounters Lucía, who runs the nursing home, but not her life; too fearful to follow the lure of her dreams or rebel against her parents, she has grown dull and unhappy. “Beyond Intensity” captures the story of three characters trapped in lives that bring them only loneliness and despair. Soon, they will be forced to discover what is beyond the pursuit of momentary pleasure, beyond routine, beyond conformity. Against the backdrop of a dehumanized society, these three characters’ lives give us the opportunity to reflect on the culture of immediacy and the search for instant gratification—to ask ourselves, what lies beyond intensity?
