Cuentos de Amor de Locura y de Muerte Horacio Quiroga co años después. Se veían aún de tarde en tarde, pero el viejo libertino, arrebujado ahora en sus artritis de enfermizo solterón, distaba mucho de ser respecto de su cuñada lo que se pretendía; y si mantenía el tren de madre e hija, lo hacía por una especie de compasión de ex amante, rayana en vil egoísmo, y sobre todo para autorizar los chismes actuales que hinchaban su vanidad. Nébel evocaba a la madre; y con un extremecimiento de muchacho loco por las mujeres casadas, recordaba cierta noche en que hojeando juntos y reclinados una Illustration, había creído sentir sobre sus nervios súbitamente tensos, un hondo hálito de deseo que surgía del cuerpo pleno que rozaba con él. Al levantar los ojos, Nébel había visto la mirada de ella, en lánguida imprecisión de mareo, posarse pesadamente sobre la suya. ¿Se había equivocado?

La obra poética completa de uno de los escritores más influyentes de la literatura española La figura de Federico García Lorca abarca, tanto en España como en el exterior, mucho más que su literatura.

En esta deslumbrante colección, el lector podrá recorrer el tramo completo de su obra poética: empezando con el joven Lorca en Libro de poemas, las Canciones y el Juego y teoría del duende y pasando por clásicos lorquianos como Romancero gitano, Poema del cante jondo o el impresionante poemario Poeta en Nueva York, así como Tierra y luna, Sonetos y el Llanto por Ignacio Sánchez Mejías, entre otros muchos. La edición y los prólogos otorgan al lector las herramientas necesarias para comprender y contextualizar al personaje, para acercarse a la complejidad de su obra y para disfrutar, en un sólo volumen, de uno de los autores españoles más relevantes del siglo XX.

Harry Haller is a sad and lonely figure, a reclusive intellectual for whom life holds no joy. He struggles to reconcile the wild primeval wolf and the rational man within himself without surrendering to the bourgeois values he despises. His life changes dramatically when he meets a woman who is his opposite, the carefree and elusive Hermine. The tale of the Steppenwolf culminates in the surreal Magic Theater—for mad men only. Steppenwolf is Hesse's best-known and most autobiographical work. With its blend of Eastern mysticism and Western culture, it is one of literature's most poetic evocations of the soul's journey to liberation. Originally published in English in 1929, the novel's wisdom continues to speak to our souls and marks it as a classic of modern literature.

Memoirs are an essential part of the history of the Twentieth century, not only because it is written by one of the century's great poets but because Neruda was involved as a writer and a politician with an extraordinary range of people and events. He writes vividly about the friends he knew, from Lorca, Picasso and Ghandi to those events that he experienced, from the Spanish Civil War to his political career in Chile. Neruda was a poet, an Ambassador and Presidential candidate, as well as being the most prolific and popular poet of his time.

The Time of the Hero has been acclaimed by critics around the world as one of the outstanding Spanish novels of recent decades. In the author's native Peru, this powerful social satire so outraged the authorities that a thousand copies were publicly burned. The novel is set in Leoncio Prado Military Academy in Lima, where a group of cadets attempt to break out of the vicious round of sadistic ragging, military discipline, confinement and boredom. But their pranks set off a cycle of betrayal, murder and revenge which jeopardizes the entire military hierarchy. 'A work of undeniable power and skill.' Sunday Telegraph

At the height of his powers, Pablo Picasso was the artist as revolutionary, breaking through the niceties of form in order to mount a direct challenge to the values of his time. At the height of his fame, he was the artist as royalty: incalculably wealthy, universally idolized−and wholly isolated. In this stunning critical assessment, John Berger−one of this century's most insightful cultural historians−trains his penetrating gaze upon this most prodigious and enigmatic painter and on the Spanish landscape and very particular culture that shpaed his life and work. Writing with a novelist's sensuous evocation of character and detail, and drawing on an erudition that embraces history, politics, and art, Berger follows Picasso from his childhood in Malaga to the Blue Period and Cubism, from the creation of Guernica to the pained etchings of his final years. He gives us the full measure of Picasso's triumphs and an unsparing reckoning of their cost−in exile, in loneliness, and in a desolation that drove him, in his last works, into an old man's furious and desperate frenzy at the beauty of what he could no longer create.
