Description

Un volumen que re�ne la primera novela de Amado Nervo, El bachiller, una de sus obas menos conocidas, El donador de almas y una entra�able selecci�n de cuentos componen la presente edici�n, a cargo del doctor Gustavo Jim�nez Aguirre, experto en este gran autor mexicano del siglo XIX.

La primera novela de Amado Nervo, El bachiller representa el inicio de una f�rtil y exitosa carrera literaria. Entre un estilo naturalista y modernista, a la par de unos tintes decadentistas, la novela narra la historia de Felipe, un t�mido joven que decide que para estudiar teolog�a tiene que hacerlo a trav�s de una rigurosa disciplina que termina por menguar su salud. Al regresar a la casa de su t�o para recuperarse, volver� a ver su querida amiga de la infancia, Asunci�n, quien pondr� en entredicho su compromiso con la vida religiosa.
En El donador de almas el lector se sorprender� con un radical giro en la narrativa de Nervo, quien en esta ocasi�n nos presenta un cuento m�s cercano a la ciencia ficci�n --quiz�s de los primeros ejemplos en la literatura hispanoamericana-- que al realismo que lo caracteriz� al inicio de su carrera. La premisa: un acomodado doctor recibe una curiosa donaci�n, un alma, que pondr� de cabeza su existencia burguesa y al propio g�nero narrativo.

Cierra el volumen una selecci�n de los mejores cuentos del autor.ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONThis work combines Amado Nervo's first novel, El bachiller / The Graduate, with El domador de almas / The Soul Tamer, and a selection of short stories, all compiled by Dr. Gustavo Jimenez Aguirre, an expert on this great Mexican author of the 19th Century.

Nervo's first novel, El bachiller / The Graduate, started what was to become a rich and successful literary career. With hints of both a realistic and modernist style, along with some decadent tones, the novel tells the story of Felipe, a shy young man who decides that in order to study theology he must do so under a very rigorous discipline, one that ends up taking a toll on his health. When he returns to his uncle's house to begin the healing process, he reunites with a childhood friend, Asuncion, who will make him question his commitment to religious life. In El domador de almas / The Soul Tamer readers will be surprised at a radical turn within Nervo's narrative style which, this time offers a storyline closer to science fiction --perhaps the first of its kind in Latin American literature -- than the realistic storylines that he was known for at the beginning of his career. The premise: a wealthy doctor receives an odd donation, a soul, one that will turn his bourgeois existence upside down as well as the entire genre.
