La Edad De Oro

Varias generaciones de niños y adultos se han deleitado con las obras de José Martí, el escritor nacional de Cuba. La Edad de Oro, obra que tras su aparición como revista mensual en 1889, y como libro durante los primeros años del siglo XX, ha tenido una presencia constante en el horizonte editorial hispanoamericano. Dicha permanencia, sin embargo, no ha impedido que cada ...more

Los niños cubanos nos criamos con este libro, y resulta inevitable guardar un recuerdo agradable al recorres sus páginas.

Salió de una revista que editaba Martí en el exilio y fue recopilada para editar el libro. Contiene poemas, cuentos geniales y tambien historias educativas para niños como la historia del hombre contada por sus casas, juegos nuevos y viejos, y muchos más.

Además hay su toquecito de historia pero sobre todo el modo suave de escribir de MArtí, que resulta una experiencia intere

Recommends it for: To anyone who likes Stories Mixed in with History
I love this book, I read this book and was stunned that not only did it have Children's Stories, but also History and knowledge of Different Cultures mixed in it.

Solamente un pueblo culto verdaderamente puede ser libre.
En varias naciones el héroe nacional siempre resulta ser un militar que lucho por la libertad o un gobernante famoso cuyas acciones salvaron a la patria; en el caso de Cuba su héroe, y su apóstol, resulta ser un poeta, José Martí.
El pueblo cubano tiene en veneración a este hombre que fue político, filósofo y poeta, cuyo destino fue sellado en su primer contacto con el campo de batalla. Para Martí, la defensa más poderosa de un pueblo no

Shelves: spanish, children-ya
I had to read this when I was in school, probably around 7th or 8th grade. Jose Marti, the Cuban poet and independence fighter, was exiled for a time in New York City. During that time, one of his projects was this: La Edad de Oro, a magazine for children. Now, keep in mind this was the late 19th century or so, thus we are not talking the crappy pap kids get fed today. Marti treated children like human beings who were smart and capable of learning and growing up to be productive citizens and mem ...more

Ten en cuenta que español no es mi primer idioma.

¿Cómo se puede criticar este libre? (O más debidamente, una colección de revistas)

Se dice en las otras críticas que cada cubano lee La Edad de Oro en su infancia, porque José Martí fue un gran patriota y escritor. Y puedo ver porque se habla así. Las mejores partes tratan de la época colonial, incluyendo la vidas de Bartolomé de las Casas, Simón Bolívar, José de San Martín, y Hidalgo. Martí dice que los héroes no pueden ser perfecto; aún el sol ti

Ubicando a José Martí a finales del siglo XIX, viviendo en Nueva York y escribiendo La Edad de Oro para niños y niñas me pareció algo muy especial.

Me encantó que reconoce específicamente a las niñas y también las hace destinatarias de sus libros. Me gustó mucho cómo hace síntesis espectaculares sobre temas que no son simples: la liberación de los países de América Latina, la Ilíada, la vida en distintos continentes a partir de mirar lo que las viviendas nos dicen...

Me gustó el uso de fábulas y

This charming and melancholic little book is even more moving by the foreknowledge that its author would soon leave New York to serve against the Spanish in the American-Spanish war... His pages on the Paris exposition and particularly on the significance of the Eiffel Tower as a symbol of a new era is fantastic, as is his bios on the lives of American liberators. A great gift for children and young adults (as this book was originally intended for them)

I read this thinking of my mother, who read this as a girl in Cuba. While many of the sections are really outdated (and as a result not too interesting and sometimes problematic), I loved reading the poetry, the themes of charity, and finding humor in an entire section about pin the tail on donkey, the hottest new game of the moment. ☺

I simply cannot review this book without bias because this book was so much a part of my childhood. There is "A Little Prince", there is "A Little Princess", and then there's "La Edad de Oro." All classics, all beautiful.

Este libro nutre por dentro. Está escrito con delicadeza. Crea y recrea literatura dirigida a los más pequeños. Surgió como una revista de entregas pero lo conocí como un libro.
Tomás García
It was directed for kids at the end of the nineteen century.
In my opinion, the best part is the description of the World Fair in Paris at that time.
