Recuerdos de Ninez Y de Mocedad
Author: Miguel de Unamuno
Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
Haber nacido en la región vasca de España, dio a Unamuno una identidad específica, ya que la cultura y el lenguaje Vasco forman una totalidad única -autónoma- dentro de España. Después de haber estudiado en Bilbao y luego en la Universidad de Madrid, donde se doctoró en 1883, Unamuno se convirtió en un profesor universitario, enseñando en Bilbao durante siete años, para luego trasladarse a Salamanca para ocupar la cátedra de Lengua Griega y Literatura. Y en poco tiempo asume las funciones de rector. Unamuno fue un gran pensador: sabía griego, latín, hebreo y árabe, así como varias lenguas modernas. Además, desarrolló un interés de por vida en la filología, la lingüística, la literatura, la filosofía y la estética. Sus contribuciones a todos estos campos se encuentran no sólo en sus ensayos, sino también en la novela, teatro y poesía. Él sobrevivió muchas crisis: la guerra carlista, el bombardeo de Bilbao en 1873 y 1874, la Primera Guerra Mundial, y el estallido de la Guerra Civil trágica en 1936, el año de su muerte. Dos veces fue destituido como rector de la Universidad de Salamanca.Unamuno habíase casado con su novia de la infancia, y a quien dedicó su vida; una vida llena de amor para su esposa y sus nueve hijos. Acerca de Los Recuerdos de Niñez y de MocedadEl arco completo de la vida de Unamuno solo se puede apreciar leyendo Los recuerdos, que más que deleite proveen admiración por una vida bien vivida y meritoria de inmortalidad. Leer este librito es una jornada llena de amor.
Author: Jane Austen
Jane Austen (1775-1817) was an English novelist whose realism, biting social commentary and masterful use of free indirect speech, burlesque, and irony have earned her a place as one of the most widely read and most beloved writers in English literature. Austen lived her entire life as part of a small and close-knit family located on the lower fringes of English gentry. She was educated primarily by her father and older brothers as well as through her own reading. The steadfast support of her family was critical to Austen's development as a professional writer. During this period, she experimented with various literary forms, including the epistolary novel which she tried and then abandoned. From 1811 until 1816, with the release of Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma (1816), she achieved success as a published writer. She wrote two additional novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, both published posthumously in 1818, and began a third, which was eventually titled Sanditon, but died before completing it.

Miguel de Unamuno y Jugo was born in Bilbao on 29th September 1864. He wrote novels, essays, poems and plays, and in addition to these he played an important part in the political and intellectual life of Spain - an involvement that led to his exile to Fuerteventura in 1924. San Manuel Bueno, mátir (1930) was his last novel before his death in 1936. It tells the story of a heroic priest who has lost his faith in immortality, a theme that had interested Unamuno for many years. The setting of the novel is atmospheric and significant, the characters shadowy and symbolic. The book overall is a synthesis of Unamuno's philiosophy.
