Description

En un solo volumen, la edicion definitiva de los cuentos de Vladimir Nabokov.

Vladimir Nabokov, aunque fundamentalmente conocido por su obra maestra, la novela Lolita (1955), fue tambien un prolifico autor de narrativa breve. La produccion en este ambito se extiende a lo largo de mas de cuarenta anos de trayectoria literaria. Sus Cuentos completos son, pues, una mirilla a la panoramica del proceso de maduracion del autor ruso. Desde sus primeros relatos recogidos en El retorno de Chorb, en 1930, hasta los cuentos redactados en sus ultimos anos de vida, el escritor muestra en todos ellos su genio. Desfilan asi ante los ojos del lector, una a una, las razones por las que, a dia de hoy, se considera a Nabokov un clasico de la contemporaneidad. Resenas: -Que sorprendente belleza en las frases, giros del pensamiento, brillantes muestras de ingenio y hondura de sentimientos... El don de Nabokov consiste en recrear el paraiso alli donde posa la mirada.-John Updike -Uno de los conjuntos cuentisticos a la vez mas clasicos e innovadores que pueda disfrutar un contemporaneo. Uno de los mas coherentes y sin duda de los mas arriesgados y ambiciosos.-Javier Marias -El arte eximio que creo Nabokov no fue una critica de lo existente sino una manera de desencarnar la vida, disolviendola en un fulgurante espejismo de abstracciones.-Mario Vargas Llosa ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Vladimir Nabokov, although primarily known for his masterpiece, Lolita (1955), was also a prolific short stories author. His production in the art of writing extends for over forty years of literary career. His Complete Stories are therefore a peephole into the development process of the Russian author. From his earliest stories collected in El retorno de Chorb / The Return of Chorb, in 1930, to the stories written in his last years of his life, the writer shows all his genius. One by one, the reasons why Nabokov is considered a classic in contemporaneity, march right in front of the reader. "What an amazing beauty in the phrases, twists, brilliant examples of wit and depth of feelings ... Nabokov s gift is to recreate paradise wherever he gazes." -John Updike "One of the most classic and innovative short story sets that a reader can enjoy. One of the most consistent and certainly the most daring and ambitious one. - Javier Marias "The eminent art created by Nabokov was not a criticism of what exists, but rather a way to disembody life, dissolving it in a dazzling mirage of abstractions." -Mario Vargas Llosa"
