El príncipe y el mendigo por Mark Twain.

Esta novela corta está ambientada en Inglaterra 1547 y cuenta la vida de dos chicos idénticos que por azares del destino intercambian su identidad: el opulento príncipe y el miserable mendigo. La fábula y cuento escrito por Mark Twain tiene una mezcla perfecta entre ingenuidad y humor, las vidas disímiles y contradictorias de Tom Canty y Eduardo VI en sus diversos y opuestos contextos socioeconómicos, le permiten describir las diferencias abismales entre las clases sociales de la Inglaterra de la época. Twain nos sumerge en un relato lleno de bondad a la par que retrata de forma cruda las penalidades por las que tiene que pasar el príncipe, cuando vestido con harapos es rechazado por todos y queda sumido en lo más bajo de la escoria social. Asimismo, sueña y nos invita a soñar con el mendigo transubstanciado en príncipe.

Esta pequeña y gran historia se ilustró y se adaptó a todos los formatos de cine y televisión convirtiéndose en uno de los relatos más conocidos de la narrativa norteamericana. En pocas páginas el autor pudo plasmar ideas tan universales que no pierden vigencia con el pasar del tiempo, tal es así, que casi todas las personas conocen a breves rasgos la trama de esta novela. El libro, al parecer sencillo, se analizó hasta la saciedad por críticos y lectores destacándose su efervescencia en la lectura infantil y juvenil. "No te fíes de las apariencias", es una de las moralejas de estas páginas agradables para una mañana soleada, una tarde fresca o una noche de verano en que nos apetezca un clásico infantil.

Primera lectura para el club de clásicos juveniles, espero leer al menos dos libros más para el club y libro 84 del año, ya rondamos los 100... #literatura #literature #libro #book #books #marktwain #ariel #ilustration #ilustration #vintage #vintagebook #vintagebooks #oldbook #oldbooks #bibliophilia #bibliophile #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookhaul #bookworm #clubclasicosjuveniles #clubclásicosjuveniles #principeymendigo #elprincipeyelmendigo #princeandpauper #theprinceandthepauper

Published in 1940. Seventy-seven years of circ. We got our money's worth! #oldbooks Also, I think one of the few times her Mallowan title was included on the copyright page.

One of the many reasons I love old cookbooks. Doesn't hurt that I enjoyed "Girl With all the Gifts" tremendously yesterday. 😂

“Whom are you going to dance with?' asked Mr. Knightley.
She hesitated a moment and then replied, 'With you, if you will ask me.'
Will you?' said he, offering his hand.
‘Indeed I will. You have shown that you can dance, and you know we are not really so much brother and sister as to make it at all improper.'
‘Brother and sister! no, indeed.”
-Emma and Mr. Knightley

Let’s talk classics! Love ‘em? Hate ‘em? Couldn’t care less about them? For me, there is something about a book that has stood the test of time, and I love the simple and romantic prose in particular of writers in the 1800’s. It’s fascinating to read fiction set in these time periods by those who actually lived it. I haven’t read nearly as many classics as I’d like, but I’m happy with the amount I have read thus far. Though it’s honestly hard for me to narrow it down, I believe I’ve worked out a loose top 5. In no particular order:
1. Wuthering Heights
2. Tess of the D’Urbervilles
3. Catcher in the Rye
4. Peter Pan
5. Emma
What are your top favorites?

#Sagarana is a book of short stories published by the #brazilianwriter #JoãoGuimarãesRosa in 1946.
The texts exemplify well the author's style, his innovative language and his themes, linked to the #rural life of #MinasGerais.

#GuimarãesRosa cleverly combines and recombines the information of the #environment, confusing places and landscapes, merging the real, the imaginary and the legendary in his work. It is a universalist regionalist book since its histories are located in the backwoods of Minas Gerais, nevertheless in a context of universal #existentialquestions.

The #tales in the book are:
• The little dust-brown donkey
• The return of the prodigal husband
• The straw-spinners
• Duel
• Mine own people
• Woodland witchery
• Bulletproof
• Conversation among oxen
• Augusto Matraga's hour and turn
