9780140025002: Spanish Short Stories: Cuentos Hispanicos: Volume 1 (Penguin Parallel Text Series)

Excellent reading in either Spanish or English, the eight short stories in this collection by authors including Jorge Luis Borges, Gabriel Garcia Márquez and Camilo José Cela have been chosen for their readability and literary merit. Seven are from Spanish America, only one from Spain, an unsurprising ratio considering there are no less than nineteen Spanish-speaking countries in the Americas, and that the short story is an extremely popular form among authors there. This selection also, therefore, gives the reader an insight into the differences between the literary cultures.

Printed approximately in order of difficulty, the stories are accompanied by parallel English translations and notes on the text.

Book Description Penguin Books, 1966. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The eight short stories in this collection by Jorge Luis Borges, Gabriel Garca Marquez, Camilo Jos Cela and other writers in Spanish have been chosen both for their literary merit and for being representative of twentieth-century Spanish American writing. The English translations that are printed in a parallel text are literal rather than literary, and there are additional notes on the text. The volume is intended primarily to help English-speaking students of Spanish, but these stories stand on their own and make excellent reading in either language. Los ocho cuentos de esta coleccion escritos por Jorge Luis Borges, Gabriel Garca Mrquez y Camilo Jos Cela entre otros autores hispano hablantes, han sido seleccionados tanto por su merito literario como por ser representativos de las tendencias literarias hispanoamericanos del siglo veinte. Las traducciones al ingles que figuran paralelmente, son mas bien literales que literarias, incluyendo apuntes adicionales. Este volumene. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0140025006
