              Alejandro Jodorowsky nos muestra el camino que le llevo a la psicomagia, desde sus primeros actos poeticos y teatrales hasta su aprendizaje para controlar el mundo onirico. Estos pasos imprescindibles, junto con el conocimiento que maestros, curanderos y chamanes le transmitieron..., fue lo que dio origen a sus tecnicas para sanar, conocidas como psicomagia y psicogenealogia. El libro ofrece tambien al lector una entrevista con Jodorowsky, en la que nos habla de la muerte, del destino, las religiones, su idea sobre el futuro de la humanidad o la necesidad de despertar nuestra mente. El volumen se cierra con una serie de ejercicios donde el autor nos muestra como es posible desarrollar nuestra creatividad y utilizarla para que nos libere de roles e ideas preconcebidas, y un apendice con doce casos psiquiatricos reales cuyos pacientes fueron curados al serles prescritos actos de psicomagia.

              An exceptional collection that gathers, for the first time, in a single volume, all of Nobel Prize winner Gabriel Garcia Marquez's short stories. [Translation of title into English: Complete Short Stories] Packaged into a single volume are forty-one essential stories that showcas...e the career of the author of One Hundred Years of Solitude (Cien anos de soledad) and that constitute an impressive legacy for universal literature. The reader will find the early stories of Garcia Marquez collected within Eyes of a Blue Dog, which includes Monologue of Isabel Watching It Rain in Macondo , the famous text that laid the foundations of Macondo, the vast universe --both imaginary as it was real-- that would end up becoming the most powerful literary space of our time. The birth of Macondo served as the inauguration of the magical realism era, personified by characters immersed deep in the dense and tropical landscape of the Caribbean. From this stage onwards, what followed were a series of stories that showed Garcia Marquez in full command of his narrative talent: Big Mama's Funerals ( Los funerales de la Mama Grande ), which recounts the lavish funeral of the authentic sovereign of Macondo, and The Incredible and Sad Tale of Innocent Erendira and Her Heartless Grandmother ( La increible y triste historia de la candida Erendira y su abuela desalmada ). The most recent collection of his short stories, titled Twelve Pilgrim Tales (Doce cuentos peregrinos) take the reader to old Europe to tell us about the fate of Latin American immigrants, of their melancholy and their tenacity.

              Figuring (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Figuring explores the complexities of love and the human search for truth and meaning through the interconnected lives of several historical figures across four centuries--beginning with the astronomer Johannes Kepler, who discovered the laws of planetary motion, and ending with ...the marine biologist and author Rachel Carson, who catalyzed the environmental movement. Stretching between these figures is a cast of artists, writers, and scientists--mostly women, mostly queer--whose public contribution have risen out of their unclassifiable and often heartbreaking private relationships to change the way we understand, experience, and appreciate the universe. Among them are the astronomer Maria Mitchell, who paved the way for women in science; the sculptor Harriet Hosmer, who did the same in art; the journalist and literary critic Margaret Fuller, who sparked the feminist movement; and the poet Emily Dickinson. Emanating from these lives are larger questions about the measure of a good life and what it means to leave a lasting mark of betterment on an imperfect world: Are achievement and acclaim enough for happiness? Is genius? Is love? Weaving through the narrative is a set of peripheral figures--Ralph Waldo Emerson, Charles Darwin, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Herman Melville, Frederick Douglass, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Walt Whitman--and a tapestry of themes spanning music, feminism, the history of science, the rise and decline of religion, and how the intersection of astronomy, poetry, and Transcendentalist philosophy fomented the environmental movement.

              Here is Toni Morrison in her own words: a rich gathering of her most important essays and speeches, spanning four decades. These pages give us her searing prayer for the dead of 9/11, her Nobel lecture on the power of language, her searching meditation on Martin Luther King Jr., ...her heart-wrenching eulogy for James Baldwin. She looks deeply into the fault lines of culture and freedom: the foreigner, female empowerment, the press, money, black matter(s), human rights, the artist in society, the Afro-American presence in American literature. And she turns her incisive critical eye to her own work (The Bluest Eye, Sula, Tar Baby, Jazz, Beloved, Paradise) and that of others. An essential collection from an essential writer, The Source of Self-Regard shines with the literary elegance, intellectual prowess, spiritual depth, and moral compass that have made Toni Morrison our most cherished and enduring voice.

              One of the most beloved classics of Spanish literature, referred to by Miguel de Cervantes as a book, in my opinion, divine. Now available from Vintage Espanol. When towards the end of the XV century a young law student at the University of Salamanca, Spain --Fernando de Rojas--w...rote La celestina, little did he know that he was creating a literary masterpiece, a work that would confer him immortality. For much of his life he kept a low profile because the Inquisition was relentless in its persecution of heretics. The least indiscretion could have caused him loss of reputation, property, and even his life. Humorous and ribald in its language, La celestina (known in English as The Comedy of Calisto and Melibea) is a continuous dialogue between masters and servants. Through the characters' dialogue much of the Spanish soul of those times has been revealed and learned, and by extension, of the human condition. La celestina is considered to be one of the greatest works of all Spanish literature, and is usually regarded as marking the end of the medieval period and the beginning of the renaissance in Spanish literature.
