Can I give this more than 5 stars? I had never heard of this collection of three short stories or the author before searching for great Spanish literature to prepare for an upcoming trip there. I am certainly thankful that I found it! de Unamuro's stories are tight studies in interpersonal relationships, especially focusing on power dynamics. There is no fluff, no descriptions of anything outside of the main characters' interactions & thoughts. Even the people outside of the main characters ...more

Çok büyük bir sürpriz değil. Kitabın içinde bir önsöz ve 3 tanede kısa öykü var.
Önsöz de hiç enteresan değil. Egoist bir yazarın bu kitabı neden ve nasıl yazdığı anlatılıyor. Büyük yazarlarla kendisini karşılaştırıp, kıyaslayıp övünüyor işte.
Öyküler ama çok güzel. (Buradan sonrası kitap özeti gibidir...)
İlk öykü çocuğu olmayan bir kadın ve kocası Don Juan ile ilgili. Kadın varlıklı ama tüm mal varlığının Don Juan'a ait olduğu zannediliyor.
Don Juan ise çok yakışıklı, alımlı bir erkek. Herkes

Öyküleri genel olarak karanlık buldum. 3 hikayeyi de açıkçası sevdim. Önsöz konusunda emin değilim. İş Kültür'ün çevirisi çok iyiydi bu arada.

"Sis" romanıyla tanıdığım ve çok beğendiğim Unamuno, bu 3 öyküsünde aynı duyguyu yaratamadı bende; sadece "Tam Bir Erkek" öyküsü iyi, diğer ikisi vasat sayılabilir.
Önsözündeki şu cümle aktarmaya değer:
"Her insan, temel 7 erdemi ve karşıtlarını içinde taşır: Kibirli ve mütevazıdır, obur ve kanaatkârdır, erotik ve edeplidir, kıskanç ve iyilikseverdir, cimri ve cömerttir, tembel ve çalışkandır, öfkeli ve acıçekendir."

091019: concise, sharp, existential, moral tales. too short to be considered ‘novels’ in english, these are just as long as needed. best is the last, ‘nothing less than a man’. an existential hero against social convention, holds to the core of his self, but comes to discover there are events in life, emotions in life, that must be reckoned with. satiric, horrific, tragic...

three exemplary novels, so titled with a nod to cervantes, is miguel de unamuno's best known fiction, but is actually comprised of two novellas and a short dramatic piece. unamuno, novelist, playwright, and poet, was a much regarded philosopher and intellectual in early twentieth century spain. perhaps most well known for his non-fiction work, the tragic sense of life, unamuno wrote prolifically about the struggles between reason and faith. devoted to his pursuits, unamuno even learned danish in ...more

"Bütün mutlu aileler birbirine benzer; her mutsuz aileninse kendine özgü bir mutsuzluğu vardır."

- Tolstoy.

En sevdiğim kitaplardan olan Sis , Abel Sánchez ve Tula Teyze kitaplarının yazarı Miguel de Unamuno; bu kitabında da dağ taş, fiziksel görünüm tasvir etmeden doğrudan insan ilişkilerine ve karakterlerin duygu durumlarına odaklanıyor ve kendisini bir çırpıda okutmayı başarıyor. 20.yüzyılın en büyük ilişki uzmanı ve sürükleyicilerinden olan bu adam 21.yüzyılda yaşasa kesinlikle Türk dizisi

Çok alışık olmadığım bir tarz ve ne yalan söyleyeyim çok beğenmedim, açıkçası niye böyle bir önsöz yazmış ve kitabın adına da eklemiş anlayamadım, bilen var ve söylerse sevinirim. "Dört öykü de yazabilirdim, çünkü önsöz de bir öyküdür." kısmı çok yapay geldi bana.

Son öykü hariç beğenmedim, beğenemedim. Önsözde vadettiği hiçbir şeyi yansıtamamış, ilk iki öykü ise oldukça yavan. Sanki yazmış olmak için yazılmış gibiydi.

Caricaturaly Spanish: "She saw two tear-drops in this man's cold eyes as piercing as daggers." "Unwilling to love him, she felt herself yielding to a submission that bore some resemblance to passion. It was akin to that form of love that an arrogant conqueror must inspire in the heart of a native slave girl." In a second-rate piece by Mérimée, you'd attribute such lurid writing to a proclivity for local color run amok. Apart from overblown florid prose, these stories have nothing to offer: the ...more

I have no idea how to properly review or star this book. It's a classic and was translated by Angel Flores, who taught this book in a course I took at Queens College, City University of New York, half a century ago. We read and discussed the first story, The Marques of Lumbria, in Spanish class and it holds up very well. It is a little different from the others in its restraint. The other two novelas, Two Mothers, and Nothing Less Than a Man, are intense even in English. I hope I offend no one ...more

Three Exemplary Novels presents three case studies of supremely forceful personalities- people willing to pit their wills against the very forces of life and death, shattering social conventions and family ties along their way.

In "The Marquis of Lumbria," a woman stops at nothing to bear her family an heir, even though in doing so she must destroy her family's happiness and bend a young nobleman to her will. Similarly, the heroine of "Two Mothers" is obsessed with becoming a mother, but she is

Elegantly simple in language, these three novels probe the elemental forces of human personality. In "Two Mothers" the demonic will of a woman runs amok in a whirlwind of maternal power, while in "The Marquis of Lumbria" another unforgettable heroine steers a violent course through the dense sea of tradition. By contrast, "Nothing Less Than a Man" focuses on a Nietzschean hero, a man who embodies human will deprived of spiritual strength.

Three powerful little novellas about love and obsession. This book sat on my shelves for nearly 40 years without ever being opened. Now I look to see more of the author’s books in English that I might like … and there are none. I feel cheated.

Bir önsöz ve üç adet hikaye barındıran kitapta hikayelerin üçü de birbirinden sürükleyiciydi. Önsöz de sıradan bir önsöz değil, gayet ilgi çekici bir şekilde yazılmış. Kısa sürede keyif alarak okunabilecek bir kitap, ben sevdim.

If these novels illustrate Unamuno's "tragic sense of life," as critics do claim, then it is a sense of life that validates the cruel and elevates the selfish, easily depicted in overbearing and shallow characters.

Özellikle son öykü muhteşemdi. Sıra dışı bir yazar.

These three short stories are not novels in any conventional sense--I'm not sure exactly why they are called such. I don't know what you would call them, but in a way, I think of them more like fairy tales. Nomenclature aside, I enjoyed them a lot, although I think I would have to read them again to begin to unpack them for meaning. Very minimalist, and no doubt highly influenced by the unrest in Spain leading up to the Civil War--not that these are political tales in any way; they are stories ...more

In all relationships, the battle of wills carries on, sometimes well concealed, other times made more plain. So it is in these stories from a Spanish writer nearly 100 years ago. I actually cannot trace my footsteps to them, perhaps by way of Borges? Perhaps just luck.

But these stand up decently, if not a bit strident in tone, and an archaic focus on royalty and all of its necessary foibles. The bigger they come...


But the weird flexing of power of brother over brother, of wife over wife, of

Not (in fact) three novels but short stories. Each one dealing with issues of interpersonal power featuring three very different, but all very strong personalities. Most readers will find these stories very odd, and the expressions of the relationships anything but true to life, which is (I believe) Unamuno's point.

claustrophobic & unsettling stories about interpersonal power struggles. the third one seemed more contemporary than the first two in the way it depicted personalities, & i found it particularly engrossing.

Miguel de Unamuno was born in the medieval centre of Bilbao, Basque Country, the son of Félix de Unamuno and Salomé Jugo. As a young man, he was interested in the Basque language, and competed for a teaching position in the Instituto de Bilbao, against Sabino Arana. The contest was finally won by the Basque scholar Resurrección María de Azcue.
