    One thought on “Поучителни повести”

    1. How disgraceful is it that the only reason I can come up with to actually learn Spanish is to be able to read one writer's oeuvre in full? I refer to Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, of course, author of my favorite book of all time, "Don Quixote". (Probably, and only if this were the gun test, in which I had to select only one at the risk of death. This is a secret. Do not tell anyone I said this. It is like choosing favorites among your children.) Many of his lesser known works have not even bee [...]

    2. Ανεξάρτητα με το περιεχόμενο, τις νουβέλες δηλαδή (οι οποίες είναι μια χαρά για την εποχή που γράφτηκαν), το εν λόγω δίτομο βιβλίο αποτελεί μια πραγματικά εξαιρετική έκδοση, με άριστη μετάφραση-απόδοση, και το βασικότερο, αναλυτικές υποσημειώσεις για ιστορικές, κυρίως, πληρ [...]

    3. 12 novelas que captan todo el ingenio santurrón de Cervantes. Cada una revela las distintas psiques del ser humano, su concepto del amor y el convenio, que se atan indisolublemente. El amor puro no es para los cobardes ni proviene de los menos favorecidos, es la más alta instancia que el ser humano aspira. ¿En este sentido Cervantes se burlaba de la aristocracia? No hay favor que no se logre con monedas, dependiendo de la valía de éstas, es la clase de favor y el alto nombre que se alcanza. [...]

    4. Cervantes, un grande entre los grandes de la literatura española. Tengo que decir, que después de Don Quijote, las Novelas Ejemplares me tentaron, pero lo cierto es que se me hicieron pesadas y no tan divertidas como las peripecias de Don Quijote y Sancho. Algunas me interesaron y otras se me hicieron cuesta arriba, pero estoy contenta de haber leído algo más de Cervantes, de conocer palabras y expresiones que se empleaban en la época, de tener presentes los ideales que se imponían en la l [...]

    5. In the introduction, the translator argues that had Cervantes never dreamed up and written Don Quixote, his fame would be just as great for having written these short novels. I agree. They're charming, funny, moving, inventive and, above all, entertaining. The characters tell many stories that make up each piece, too, something I loved about the design of the grand tome. If you enjoyed that, you'll find much to savor here. This edition features ink drawings, songs, poems, a melodious translation [...]

    6. Yet another book I had to read in Spanish when I was in college. I took a semester long course called "Novelas Ejemplares" (the name in Spanish) and that's all we read. I really don't rememeber one detail of one story-how sad! I'm giving it three stars to be fair since I don't think I hated it, but who knows!

    7. Excellent set of twelve short novels. I liked most "La señora Cornelia" and least "La fuerza de la sangre".

    8. Excelente conjunto de 12 novelas cortas. Mi preferida es "La señora Cornelia", y la que menos me gustó "La fuerza de la sangre".

    9. Some of these tales are exemplary, but not all. Therefore, in the picaresque spirit, I've decided to give them an overall 4 gold ducato's (which I'll take back, thank you kindly). Now onto the reviews. The Little Gypsy Girl - This is probably the most epic of all The Exemplary Tales, and the one you imagine would be made into a full-length picture as opposed to a short film. Who would direct it? Probably Visconti. Narratively it blends poetry and prose better than the other stories, and introduc [...]

    10. Again with the Serbian edition "Reč i misao", which takes the classic collection of short stories, just picks a few from the whole, and present it as a complete book. It is frustrating and confusing. And the translation still sucks. But Cervantes' short stories ARE good. Much of "Spanish spirit" is poured into their core. First one of the 3 presented in this invalid edition is by far the best one, a witty and naughty story about jealousy and lust. Second story is still good, and 3rd completely [...]

    11. As the author claims, these are stories are exemplary. My favorite has always been the Dog's Colloquy. The most impressive thing about the collection is that the wit and power of each story is undiminished by translation and the 400 years that have passed since they were written. Hail and farewell to Cervantes

    12. This is a collection of mostly straightforward stories similar to earlier Italian novellas, but I did appreciate “The Glass Graduate” for its portrayal of the glass delusion and “The Dialogue of the Dogs” for being a picaresque story with a hero akin to Marryat’s Snarleyyow or London’s White Fang—but appearing much earlier and told in dialogue form.

    13. This books contains twelve short novels and demonstrates the brilliance of the legendary author. Highly entertaining with wit and humor, these stories are classic depictions of everyman in the Golden Age of Spain. A very good read.

    14. Expectativas quebradas, mas mesmo assim é bom. O livro é incrivelmente engraçado porém às vezes ficava maçante, e infelizmente estas histórias maçantes não são a minoria. As únicas excepcionais e incomparáveis são as novela da “Ciganinha” e da “Espanhola Inglesa”. Bom e recomendo.

    15. Una muy buena colección de historias morales -casi fábulas, pero con personas de carne y hueso-, bien ancladas en los usos y costumbres de la España del siglo XVII cuando fueron publicadas. Lo transporta a uno al pasado de una manera genial, y es una muestra de lo que en ese tiempo se consideraban como los mayores valores a seguir (o a evitar) y las mejores maneras de ser, siempre con la perspectiva innegablemente humana de Cervantes.Eso sí, me costó muchísimo trabajo terminarlo (¿Año y [...]

    16. So, out of boredom, I grabbed this unread book off of my shelf and puttered through it for a while. The translation seemed a little stilted and awkward, but hey, whatevs. Then, I got to the story "The Glass Graduate", a story that had been recommended to me (well over a year ago by a friend). And then I quit, because I remembered a)what the story was about b) why the story had come up in conversation and c) why, when I left SF, I didn't go out of my way to stay in contact w/ that friend. In shor [...]

    17. Being able to read the Cervantine corpus in its original language is; by and large, one very good reason to learn Spanish. In his exemplary novels, Cervantes proclaims that he is the first Castilian novelist and he proves to be a good one. Although the very concept of novellas and short stories seems to be rather modern, there you have a couple of catching short stories set in the early 17 century and fraught with as picaresque protagonists as Cervantes himself. I can imagine that I'd much more [...]

    18. UNLIKELY TALES Miguel Cervantes collection of short stories translated by Lesley Lipson are well recommended. The stories are exemplary in the sense that they are meant to be a good example for the reader as well as edifying and educational though I suspect Cervantes, a mischievous writer if there ever was one, has his tongue firmly in his cheek when he named them.The stories are not quite as brilliant as "Don Quixote"; though they are earthy, lively, bawdy and deal with the day to day reality o [...]

    19. Comencé a leer estas novelas ejemplares con la intención de aumentar mi acervo Cervantino. Sin embargo, de lo que ya leí de Cervantes, me quedo con el Quijote y con los entremeses. La estructura de todos estos relatos es similar, aunque las variantes que ofrece nos permiten acceder a cierto conocimiento de la época (más o menos fantaseado), sus gentes y sus giros.Tienen el gran mérito de ser las primeras novelas en lengua española, además de contar con un magistral retrato de Cervantes a [...]

    20. I'm not even going to try to maintain some kind of historical perspective: "The Little Gipsy Girl" is surprisingly okay, but for the most part, I kind of hated these. The love stories are banal in the extreme, the satire is flat, and several of them have rapes whose perpetrators are portrayed sympathetically ("The Force of Blood" is bad, but "The Illustrious Scullery-Maid" is the worst in this regard; truly horrifying). Also, some pretty intense racism. It's honestly hard to believe that these a [...]

    21. This is very much a product of its position in literary history, and is difficult to enjoy as anything other than a revealing historical artifact if you are interested in literature of this period. If you go in expecting Don Quixote, the brilliance of which almost seems to be barely able to be contained to its pages by its author, you will be disappointed. While there are moments of great skill in the stories, they are very much contained and constrained by their form and context.

    22. I understand that the novel-writing was in its infancy when Cervantes lived, but these novellas are repetitive and unbelievable. I can only read so many stories about the most woman that anybody has every seen or commoners of uncommon virtue who turn out to be kidnapped noble children before I grow bored. Some of the novels that break away from that mold are quite interesting though. In particular Doctor Glasscase and The Dialogue Between Scipio and Berganze are interested.

    23. Ha estat el primer llibre del primer trimestre de lectura obligatòria. La veritat és que no me l'he acabat de llegir perquè és molt complicat d'entendre. Està escrit en castellà antic i això complica la lecturabilitat. Els resums que he llegit les històries encara semblen prou entretingudes i originals, però opino que explica els fets en masses pàgines

    24. ¡Por fin soy libre! ¡Por fin he acabado de leer este coñazo de libro!Admitiré (aunque solo bajo tortura) que me lo he pasado bien en ALGUNAS ocasiones, pero no puedo decir que me haya merecido la pena. Llevo tres horas encerrada leyendo la última historia y respondiendo preguntas. Creo que lo quemaría si no fuera por el hecho de que eso no va conmigo

    25. He leído dos: "El celoso extremeño" y "La española inglesa". Ambas novelas cortas son muy fáciles de leer y comprender, rápidas y cortas, y muy entretenidas. Muy muy recomendadas, la verdad es que son geniales. De lo mejorcito de la prosa del siglo XVII, probablemente lo más entretenido ;)nellafantasia-enlafantasia.blo

    26. Novelas Ejemplares es un libro que recopila gran variedad de obras de Cervantes, entre las que se encuentran: El licenciado Vidriera, La Gitanilla, Rinconete y Cortadillo, La fuerza de la Sangre, El Amante liberal, entre otros. Un libro clásico de la literatura española, muy recomendado y os aseguro, te encantará leerlo.
