Example in this ebook LA OBRA DE MARDRUS Por E. GÓMEZ CARRILLO HE aquí Las mil noches y una noche, que ya no son aquellos buenos cuentos de niños, arreglados por Galland, en los cuales los visires llevaban cuellos de encaje á lo Luis XIV y las sultanas se arreglaban la cabellera cual Madame de Maitenón, sino otros cuentos más serios, más crueles y más intensos, traducidos literalmente del árabe por el doctor Mardrus y puestos en castellano por uno de nuestros grandes escritores. «Vosotros los que no habéis leído sino el antiguo arreglo—nos aseguran los entusiastas de la literalidad—no conocéis estas mágicas historias.» Pero los entusiastas de la tradición clásica contestan: «En la versión nueva hay más detalles, más literatura, más pecado y más lujo, es cierto. Lo que no hay es más poesía y más prodigio. Por cantar más, los árboles no cantan mejor, y por hablar con superior elocuencia, el agua no habla con mayor gracia. Todo lo estupendo que aquí vemos, las pedrerías animadas, las rocas que oyen, los odres llenos de ladrones, los muros que se abren, los pájaros que dan consejos, las princesas que se transforman, los leones domésticos, los ídolos que se hacen invisibles, todo lo féerique, en fin, estaba ya en el viejo é ingenuo libro. Lo único que el doctor Mardrus ha aumentado es la parte humana; es decir, la pasión, los refinamientos y el dolor. La nueva Schahrazada es más artista. También es más psicóloga. Con detalles infinitos, explica las sensaciones de los mercaderes sanguinarios durante las noches de rapto y las locuras de los sultanes en los días de orgía. Pero no agrega un solo metro al asalto del caballo de bronce, ni hace mayores las alas del águila Rock, ni da mejores talismanes á los príncipes amorosos, ni pone más pingües riquezas en las cavernas de la montaña. Y esto es lo que nos interesa.» Los que hablan así se equivocan. Las «noches» de Galland eran obrillas para niños. Las «noches» de Mardrus son todo un mundo, son todo el Oriente, con sus fantasías exuberantes, con sus locuras luminosas, con sus orgías sanguinarias, con sus pompas inverosímiles... Leyéndolas he respirado el perfume de los jazmines de Persia y de las rosas de Babilonia, mezclado con el aroma de los besos morenos... Leyéndolas he visto el extraño desfile de califas y de mendigos, de verdugos, de cortesanos, de bandoleros, de santos, de jorobados, de tuertos y de sultanes, que atraviesa las rutas asoleadas, entre trapos de mil colores, haciendo gestos inverosímiles. Y como si todo hubiera sido un sueño de opio, ahora me encuentro aturdido, sin poderme dar cuenta exacta de lo que en mi mente es recuerdo de escenas admiradas en Ceylán, en Damasco, en El Cairo, en Aden, en Beirut, y lo que sólo he visto entre las páginas mardrusianas. Porque es tal la naturalidad, ó, mejor dicho, la realidad de los relatos de Schahrazada, que verdaderamente puede asegurarse que no hay en la literatura del mundo entero una obra que así nos obsesione y nos sorprenda con su vida inesperada y extraordinaria. ¡Y pensar que al abrir la obra de Mardrus figuréme que iba sencillamente á encontrarme con Las mil y una noches de Galland, que todos conocemos, un poco más completas sin duda, pero siempre con un añejo saborcillo de discreta galantería exótica! «Entre esta traducción nueva y la traducción clásica—pensé—debe de haber la misma diferencia que entre la Biblia de San Jerónimo y la del rabino Zadock Khan, ó entre la Ilíada de Hermosilla y la de Leconte de Lisie.» Pero apenas hube terminado el primer capítulo, comprendí que acababa de penetrar en un jardín antes nunca visto.

Meet New York Times bestselling author Isabel Allende’s most enchanting creation, Eva Luna: a lover, a writer, a revolutionary, and above all a storyteller. Eva Luna is the daughter of a professor’s assistant and a snake-bitten gardener—born poor, orphaned at an early age, and working as a servant. Eva is a naturally gifted and imaginative storyteller who meets people from all stations and walks of life. Though she has no wealth, she trades her stories like currency with people who are kind to her. In this novel, she shares the story of her own life and introduces readers to a diverse and eccentric cast of characters including the Lebanese émigré who befriends her and takes her in; her unfortunate godmother, whose brain is addled by rum and who believes in all the Catholic saints and a few of her own invention; a street urchin who grows into a petty criminal and, later, a leader in the guerrilla struggle; a celebrated transsexual entertainer who instructs her in the ways of the adult world; and a young refugee whose flight from postwar Europe will prove crucial to Eva's fate. As Eva tells her story, Isabel Allende conjures up a whole complex South American nation—the rich, the poor, the simple, and the sophisticated—in a novel replete with character and incident, with drama and comedy and history, with battles and passions, rebellions and reunions, a novel that celebrates the power of imagination to create a better world.
Today, the world offers us more options than ever before, but it also forces us to juggle more priorities, to make more choices, and to make them faster. The result: a crisis of doing too much, or not enough, and making our decisions based on impulse, stress or guilt. In 10-10-10Suzy Welch offers an exciting, effective strategy that will help you make the right decision in any situation, at work or at home; with colleagues, family or friends. The rule is deceptively simple: when faced with a decision, consider what the consequences and outcomes of your various options would be in 10 minutes, 10 months, and 10 years. But the results are extraordinary. Using the framework of 10-10-10will allow you to think through your decisions and to match them with the expectations and values you hold dearest. Most importantly, it allows you to chart a path in the direction you want, and to head confidently towards it with focus, balance, and joy.
Night visions A fine art portfolio of Kay Nielsen's sumptuous A Thousand and One Nights In the late 1910s, in a Europe ravaged by World War I, Danish illustrator Kay Nielsen put the finishing touches on his illustrations of A Thousand and One Nights. The results are considered masterpieces of early 20th-century illustration: bursting with sumptuous colors of deep blues, reds, and gold leaf, and evoking all the magic of this legendary collection of Indo-Persian and Arabic folktales, compiled between the 8th and 13th centuries. In the financially strapped postwar climate, however, publishers retreated from Nielsen's project and the publication never happened. A rising star, Nielsen moved on to other work, and the spectacular pen, ink, and watercolor images of this world heritage classic remained under lock and key for 40 years. Published just once in the 1970s, the illustrations were rescued from oblivion after Nielsen's death in 1957 and are now held by the UCLA Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, the Art Institute of Chicago, and in two private collections. Published for the first time ever in five colors including gold, this unique presentation of fine art prints revives all 21 strikingly beautiful illustrations reproduced directly from Nielsen's original watercolors- the only complete set of his beloved illustrations to have survived. Each illustration is presented individually in an extra-large format and on fine art paper , allowing Nielsen's graphic mastery and rich array of influences, from Art Nouveau to Japanese woodcuts to Indian painting, to dazzle. The set also includes a 144-page hardcover book also printed in five colors , featuring descriptions of all of the images, and three generously illustrated essays on the making of this series, the origin of Nielsen's unique imagery, and a history of the tales. In addition, the accompanying book features many unpublished or rarely seen artworks by Nielsen, as well as all 23 of the incredibly intricate black-and-;white drawings Nielsen also created for the original publication. This is a rare chance to own exceptional reproductions of this highly-influential artist's only surviving complete set of watercolors. Text in English, French, and German

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JULIA ROBERTS, OWEN WILSON, AND JACOB TREMBLAY! Over 6 million people have read the #1 New York Times bestseller WONDER and have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face. The book that inspired the Choose Kind movement. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse. August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance. "Wonder is the best kids' book of the year," said Emily Bazelon, senior editor at Slate.com and author of Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel “a meditation on kindness” —indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out. Join the conversation: #thewonderofwonder
