Because The Lazarillo of Tormes pointed a new direction, European and American literature benefited with titles that today are considered classics: Cervantes’ Rinconete and Cortadillo; Daniel Defoe’s Moll Flanders, Henry Fielding’s Tom Jones and Joseph Andrews; Tobias Smollett’s Roderick Random, and Peregrine Pickle; Voltaire’s Candide; Charles Dickens’ David Copperfield.

Dehumanization of Art by Ortega y Gasset - my translation $0.99
The Dehumanization of Art— is now a constant in music, literature, aesthetics, and philosophy, having come to mean that in post-modern times human-shaped mimesis (representation of the human) is irrelevant to art. According to Ortega, the arts don't have to tell a human story; art should deal with its own forms—and not with the human form.

East of Tiffany's - bestseller $5
With the city as its backdrop "East of Tiffany's" is filled with earnest tales of love, loss, faith, success and morality. While business terminology is interwoven throughout these short stories, it's not business lessons that I take away with me, but life lessons. The circumstances and the characters' profound humanity are relatable despite their zip code . "Luke, Postmodern Man" offers a new vista into faith, suffering, and love of neighbor. Way after you read this book you'll find yourself thinking about the various characters throughout the series of stories and will find solace in their unwavering faith. The narrators' ability to reflect on their hardships with such serenity is inspiring.

Mariana, Una novela de la autora francesa George Sand


Mariana, una novela de George Sand
Introducción de Marciano Guerrero

Biografía breve

Aurore Dupin—más conocida por su seudónimo: George Sand— fue la escritora más famosa del siglo XIX en Francia.
No sólo fue una prolífica escritora, sino también una mujer de fuerte carácter, admirada tanto por su obra como por su estilo de vida: una fogosa feminista.
Su primera novela, Indiana, es la historia de una mujer infeliz que lucha por liberarse de la prisión del matrimonio. La obra obtuvo un éxito fenomenal inmediato. Otras novelas como Valentine y Lélia sorprendieron a los lectores por su apasionado clamor a la acción para liberar a las mujeres de su esclavizada condición.
La vida de George Sand fue completamente abierta al público, colmándose pronto de rumores y escándalos sobre sus relaciones con hombres famosos (artistas, escritores, músicos) que conoció en París: Eugène Delacroix, Liszt Franz, Jules Sandeau, Alfred de Musset, y Frédéric Chopin, entre otros. Otros admiradores fueron: Turgenev, Balzac, Flaubert, Henry James, and Oscar Wilde.

Por supuesto, su complicada liaison con Chopin fue tan notoria que hasta hoy día, mas se conoce a George Sand como la amante del compositor que como novelista.   

Acerca de la novela Mariana

La novela se desarrolla en el campo francés, y trata de la emancipación de Mariana, una joven huérfana, dejada a la tutela de su padrino: Pierre André. Mariana hereda las tierras, casa, y propiedades que sus padres le dejaron. Y a pesar de sus limitaciones —como mujer en una época de sumisión y dependencia en el hombre— ella administra su hacienda con mucho tino, embelleciendo, e incrementado el valor de su granja. A nuestros estándares de hoy, la prosa es poética, sentimental, pero muy adecuada a su época. Flaubert declara que al leer la novela varias veces se encontró sollozando de emoción. El amor —entre Mariana y Pierre, azuzado por el pretendiente parisino Felipe Gaucher— se desenvuelve en frente del lector; o más apto sería decir que el lector construye ese amor al reconocer indicios y pistas a los que los protagonistas mismos están ciegos. Además del triángulo amoroso, vemos la parcialidad de una madre —Madame André— que ve con ojos prácticos por la felicidad de su hijo, simbolizando la paciencia, honestidad, y moralidad de su generación.

Como si las emociones rutinarias no fueran campo fértil suficiente para la ficción, la autora se las arregla para incrustar deleitantes pasajes sobre la estética de la ciudad y la estética de apreciación del campo. Quien predomina es cuestión de gusto personal, aunque Mariana parece sacar el mejor partido ya que sus opiniones son forjadas en la naturaleza y en lo más profundo del alma aliadas con su Dios.
Al final, es emocionante y cargado de titubeos que mantiene al lector en suspenso, y con muchas ganas de saltar a la última página para saber quién gana la mano de Mariana.
