Para este volumen hemos elegido cinco relatos que serán otras tantas pruebas de su eficacia y de su variedad. Sólo hacia el fin de "The shadow of Mapuhi" el lector advierte cuál es el verdadero protagonista; "The law of life" nos revela un destino atroz, aceptado por todos con naturalidad y hasta con inocencia; "Lost face" es la salvación de un hombre ante la tortura media ...more

El prólogo de Borges + la selección de los 5 relatos, escritos por Jack london = perdida de noción del tiempo. Una genialidad los relatos de Jack London, disfruté mucho todos los relatos.

"La casa de Mapuhi" 5/5. En este relato a contraposición del relato "La ley de la vida", uni de los personajes encuentra un motivo para aferrarse a la vida, gracias a ese sueño/anhelo...que es la "casa de Mapuhi".

"La sombra y el relámpago". 5/5. Este me encantó.

"Cara Perdida". 5/5.

"Las muertes concéntricas." 5/5

Ho schifato per anni questo autore: da bambina consideravo i suoi libri 'roba da maschi', Zanna Bianca e Il richiamo della foresta non facevano per me. Ora, non so cosa ne penserei se li leggessi, ma sono molto propensa al recupero del tempo perduto. Questi racconti sono scritti benissimo, sono intriganti e insoliti. Tutti accomunati dal tema della morte, ma si tratta di una morte imprevista e imprevedibile, ma banale. In più London ha la capacità di farti sentire su un'isola attaccato ad un alb ...more

lo encontré rebuscando en la biblioteca de mis padres, y es todo una joya.
Una edición preciosa, de las que hacen llorar de lo cuidadas que están y te preguntas porque ya no hacen libros así.
Y las historietas son geniales, te atrapan. Cautivan.

Cinque racconti, più o meno riusciti a mio avviso, selezionati tra la non esigua produzione di London, autore celebre - almeno dalle nostre parti - principalmente per l'accoppiata Il richiamo della foresta/Zanna Bianca e poco altro ( Martin Eden, il fantascientifico Il vagabondo delle stelle, in anni recenti riproposto sia da Adelphi che da Feltrinelli ).

In questi racconti troviamo alcune tematiche care all'Autore: il darwinismo e la lotta per la sopravvivenza ( come giustamente fa notare Borges

Nunca había leído a Jack London porque sus novelas no me llamaban la atención; ahora sé, por estos cuentos, de lo que me he perdido. Son cuentos crudos pero a la vez tan bellos, tan poéticos, que casi todose conmovieron hasta las lágrimas, en especial La ley de la vida. Como anticipa Borges, la prosa de London es precursora de la prosa de Hemingway. Y está de más resaltar la labor de lector de Borges para elegir estos cuentos.

Muy bueno el prólogo de Borges, excelentes los cuentos más conocidos y no tanto dos que nunca había leído, uno sobre extorsionadores y otro sobre científicos rivales.
En la traducción de un cuento Borges pone "peticito"... raro.

Jack London was an American novelist, journalist, social-activist and short-story writer whose works deal romantically with elemental struggles for survival. At his peak, he was the highest paid and the most popular of all living writers. Because of early financial difficulties, he was largely self educated past grammar school.

London drew heavily on his life experiences in his writing. He spent ti
