Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad

By Joseph Conrad

The vintage novel that encouraged Apocalypse Now
A eu buying and selling situation hires Marlow to pilot a ship up the Congo River looking for Kurtz—a top notch ivory agent and the chief of the company's hugely ecocnomic internal Station—who is thought to be on his deathbed. With a handful of pilgrims as his passengers and a staff of cannibals, Marlow steams his approach into the African inside. The terrifying discovery he makes on the finish of his trip and the horrors he witnesses alongside the best way have extremely joyful and disturbed readers for greater than a century.

A searing indictment of imperialism and a haunting exposé of mankind's savage nature, Heart of Darkness is Joseph Conrad's masterpiece.

See Now Then

In See Now Then, the intense and evocative new novel from Jamaica Kincaid—her first in ten years—a marriage is published in all its joys and agonies. This piercing exam of the manifold ways that the passing of time operates at the human recognition unfolds gracefully, and Kincaid inhabits every one of her characters—a mom, a father, and their young children, residing in a small village in New England—as they flow, of their personal minds, among the current, the prior, and the long run: for, as she writes, "the current might be now then and the earlier is now then and the longer term might be a now then.

Ema, la cautiva

Ema, l. a. cautiva es quizá los angeles más reconocida novela de César Aira y l. a. primera de toda su obra que se publicó en España.

Ameno lector, hay que ser pringlense, y pertenecer al Comité del Significante, para saber que una contratapa es una «tapa en contra». Sin ir más lejos, yo lo sé. Pero por alguna razón me veo frívolamente obligado a contarte cómo se me ocurrió esta historiola. los angeles ocasión es propicia para las confidencias: una linda mañana de primavera, en el Pumper Nic de Flores, donde suelo venir a pensar. Tomasito (dos años) juega entre las mesas colmadas de colegiales de incógnito. Reina los angeles desocupación, el tiempo sobra.

Hace unos años yo period muy pobre, y ganaba lo necesario para analista y vacaciones traduciendo, gracias a los angeles bondad de un editor amigo, largas novelas de esas llamadas «góticas», odiseas de mujeres, ya inglesas, ya californianas, que trasladan sus morondangas de siempre por mares himenópticos, maresde té pasional. Las disfrutaba, por supuesto, pero con l. a. práctica llegué a sentir que había demasiadas pasiones, y que cada una anulaba a las demás como un desodorizante de ambientes. Fue todo pensarlo y concebir l. a. notion, atlética si las hay, de escribir una «gótica» simplificada. Manos a l. a. obra. Soy de decisiones imaginarias rápidas. El Eterno Retorno fue mi recurso. Abjuré del Ser: me volví Sei Shonagon, Sherezada, más los animales. Las «anécdotas del destino». Durante varias semanas me distraje. Sudé un poco. Me reí. Y al terminar resultó que Ema, mi pequeña yo mismo, había creado para mí una pasión nueva, los angeles pasión por l. a. que pueden cambiarse todas las otras como el dinero se cambia por todas las cosas: los angeles indiferencia. ¿Qué más pedir?

La crítica ha dicho. ..
«César Aira es hoy por hoy uno de los autores más inclasificables de los angeles narrativa hispanoamericana. Inclasificable por su originalidad, por su brillantez, por su sabiduría en el oficio de narrar en el que mezcla humor, imaginería desbordante y agudas reflexiones. »
