Herman Melville's intense and dramatic novella Benito Cereno depicts a revolt aboard a Spanish slavery vessel captained by the titular character. Melville first published this story in 1855 - the... More > ensuing popularity from its initial serialisation led Benito Cereno to be published as a distinct book in its own right. A tale of deception of both the characters and the readers, the tale is commonly cited as a classic example of the unreliable narrator device in which the subjective viewpoints lead the reader astray as to what is actually happening. Set in 1799, we witness an American trading vessel, the Bachelor's Delight, visiting to aid the San Dominick - a Spanish slave ship which has apparently fallen into distress. The American captain, Amasa Delano, notes a few oddities about Captain Benito Cereno and the ship's passengers, particularly the liberties taken by the slaves aboard ship, but is otherwise unperturbed.< Less

Este libro contiene uno de los secretos mejor guardados de nuestro tiempo: para entender Europa, es imprescindible conocer la vida de San Benito y la Regla monástica que escribió.... More > Quizá, más que un secreto, podría considerarse un olvido intencionado por parte de una época que idolatra la acción y ya no conoce el valor de la contemplación. A fuerza de perseguir el progreso, hemos olvidado los cimientos en los que se asienta nuestra cultura. En una gruta perdida en Subiaco y en la altura abandonada y arrasada por los bárbaros de Montecassino, Benito vivió una vida dedicada a la oración y al trabajo manual. Su silencio y ocultación, sin embargo, tuvieron un impacto más profundo y duradero en la cultura de Occidente que las políticas, batallas y decretos de emperadores y reyes. Milagros, visiones y dones excepcionales de Dios salpican la vida de un santo que, a través de su ejemplo y de su Regla, inspiraría a los monjes que conservaron durante siglos la cultura occidental y transformaron Europa.< Less

"Quicksilver Chronicles" is one woman’s surreal and satirical memoirs spanning about a decade, from the beginning of this new century, depicting what life throws at her family of... More > gem-mining misfits struggling to live with a lethally polluted watershed in a forgotten western ghost town, called New Idria. As the James family copes with their systematic mercury poisoning -- the aftermath of unscrupulous mining corporations, the U.S. Department of Defense, and a reservoir-hoarding drug rehab upstream -- their hopes of environmental justice diminish with each new anti-scientific edict enacted by the state. The tiny community earnestly elects an orange tabby, a people-hating cat, as Mayor to represent their micro-nation. Told through the eyes of Georgia James, the saga details the clan's run-ins with highgraders, UFOs, "Littlefoot," the insane "War on Drugs," and the absurd politics of the Bush/Cheney years.< Less
