El juego de los abalorios o El juego de abalorios (título completo: El juego de los abalorios. Ensayo de biografía de Josef Knecht, 'magister ludi', seguido de los escritos que dejó; en alemán: Das Glasperlenspiel. Versuch einer Lebensbeschreibung des Magister Ludi Josef Knecht samt Knechts hinterlassenen Schriften) es una novela escrita por Hermann Hesse y publicada en 1943. Fue la última de sus obras editada en vida del autor, tres años antes de recibir el Premio Nobel de Literatura. Ambientada en un tiempo futuro (en el siglo XXV o XXVI, dos mil años después de la existencia de san Benito de Nursia)1 en una provincia llamada Castalia dedicada por entero a la actividad intelectual, está narrada por un biógrafo que cuenta la vida de Josef Knecht, magister ludi (maestro de juegos) de la Orden del Juego de los Abalorios, un ejercicio intelectual que pretende relacionar todos los saberes de la humanidad. La obra tiene rasgos de novela utópica y también de novela de formación (en la tradición alemana de la bildungsroman).

El juego de los abalorios es una novela escrita por Herman Hesse en 1943, tres años antes de recibir el Premio Nobel de Literatura, escrita a modo de crónica de un narrador anónimo de la mítica Castalia, hacia el año 2400. Gira en torno al extraño juego del que toma título, abarcador de todos los contenidos y valores de la cultura, y que permite el desarrollo del espíritu mediante portentosas composiciones; todo ello vinculado al advenimiento del Tercer Reino del espíritu, unificación de todos los tiempos del hombre. La vida del protagonista, el magister ludi Josef Knecht, maestro de una orden del futuro basada en la vida contemplativa, la meditación y en la sublimación del juego, es narrada desde su más tierna infancia; conocemos todos sus pasos por los diferentes escalafones de la orden, sus dudas, sus angustias, sus relaciones, sus escritos, toda su vida en contraposición con el mundo externo a la orden, donde vive uno de sus amigos de la infancia. El juego de los abalorios es el testimonio de toda una vida, crítica constructiva de nuestra época, utópico esbozo de un mundo por venir y, sobre todo, síntesis y armonización de saber y de fe; obra maestra que, pese a revestir cierta complejidad, consigue entretener, asombrar y seducir por la magia narrativa de un escritor que, a fuerza de talento y creatividad, constituye uno de los máximos referentes de la literatura alemana.

In simple, mesmerizing prose, Hermann Hesse tells of a journey both geographic and spiritual. H.H., a German choirmaster, is invited on an expedition with the League, a secret society whose members include Paul Klee, Mozart, and Albertus Magnus. The participants traverse both space and time, encountering Noah's Ark in Zurich and Don Quixote at Bremgarten. The pilgrims' ultimate destination is the East, the "Home of the Light," where they expect to find spiritual renewal. Yet the harmony that ruled at the outset of the trip soon degenerates into open conflict. Each traveler finds the rest of the group intolerable and heads off in his own direction, with H.H. bitterly blaming the others for the failure of the journey. It is only long after the trip, while poring over records in the League archives, that H.H. discovers his own role in the dissolution of the group, and the ominous significance of the journey itself.

When Hans befriends a rebellious young poet, he begins to imagine other possibilities outside the narrowly circumscribed world of the academy. Finally sent home after a nervous breakdown, Hans is revived by nature and romance, and vows never to return to the gray conformity of the academic system.

This is the first English-language edition of Klingsor's Last Summer, which was originally published in 1920, a year after Demian and two years before Siddhartha. The book has three parts: a story called A Child's Heart, followed by Klein and Wagner and Klingsor's Last Summer, Hesse's two longest and finest novellas. These novellas, along with Siddhartha (the three works were republished in 1931 under the title The Inward Way), are the first fruits of the period that began in the spring of 1919, when Hesse settled in the Ticino mountain village of Montagnola to start a new life without his wife and children. A Child's Heart, written in January 1919, in Basel, concerns the transmutation of a boy's innocence into knowledge of good and evil, and the painful guilt that accompanies this process. Both Klein and Wagner (written in May-June 1919, immediately after the arrival in Montagnola) and Klingsor's Last Summer (written shortly after) are set in a southern landscape that reflects Hesse's life that summer; both novellas have heroes who are more or less Hesse's age at the time; and in both the hero's death is preceded by a grand vision of unity in which the polarities of life are resoluved. Hesse exposes himself mercilessly in Klein and Wagner, a story of escape, wrenching loose, letting go. But the expressionist painter Klingsor is a more direct self-portrait of the Hesse of 1919.

Throughout his career, Eduardo Galeano has turned our understanding of history and reality on its head. Isabelle Allende said his works “invade the reader’s mind, to persuade him or her to surrender to the charm of his writing and power of his idealism.” Mirrors, Galeano’s most ambitious project since Memory of Fire, is an unofficial history of the world seen through history’s unseen, unheard, and forgotten. As Galeano notes: “Official history has it that Vasco Núñez de Balboa was the first man to see, from a summit in Panama, the two oceans at once. Were the people who lived there blind??” Recalling the lives of artists, writers, gods, and visionaries, from the Garden of Eden to twenty-first-century New York, of the black slaves who built the White House and the women erased by men’s fears, and told in hundreds of kaleidoscopic vignettes, Mirrors is a magic mosaic of our humanity.

Bastien Perrot, experto en musica, dio el nombre de Juego de abalorios a un ejercicio intelectual para el cual utilizaba perlas de vidrio en lugar de signos graficos. Pitagoras, los chinos, los humanistas del Renacimiento, los romanticos, imaginaron una y otra vez ese juego. "Aspiraban -dice Herman Hesse- a encerrar el universo espiritual en circulos concentricos y unir la belleza viviente del arte con la magia de las formulas propuestas por las ciencias exactas." En este relato, el autor imagina un Estado donde impera el Espiritu y cuyo nombre es Castalia, es decir, el pais de la castidad.En el un grupo de jovenes se consagran a la musica, a la astronomia, a las matematicas, con absoluto desden por todo placer carnal. En el centro de ellos, Joseph Knecht, representante de Ia orden laica de Castalia, ensena a los benedictinos el "juego de abalorios," entablando relaciones con la orden religiosa dirigida por un historiador, que de ese modo lo introduce en el seno mismo de la ciencia historica. Sera la Historia la encargada de demostrar que Castalia no puede ser eterna; el dinamismo del mundo exterior chocara irremediablemente contra la perfeccion inmovil del casto pais. Entonces se volveran mas reales las profeticas palabras de los poemas de Knecht: "Debernos ir alegres por la tierra/ sin aferrarnos nunca como a una patria; / el espiritu no quiere encadenarse.../ solo quien esta pronto para irse/ puede escapar al habito que mata."

Artemisia Gentileschi, born in 1598, the daughter of an esteemed painter, taught art in Naples and painted the great women of Roman and biblical history. She could neither read nor write, and she was the reviled victim in a public rape trial, rejected by her father, and later abandoned by her husband. Nevertheless, she was one of the first women in modern times to uphold through her work and deeds the right of women to pursue careers compatible with their talents and on an equal footing with men. This edition features a new introduction by the celebrated critic and writer Susan Sontag. ø Anna Banti, the pen name of Lucia Lopresti, was born in Florence in 1895. Trained as an art historian, she turned to novels, stories, and autobiographical prose in the 1930s. Artemisia, her second novel, published in 1947, is the most acclaimed of the sixteen works of fiction she published during her long life, and is considered a classic of twentieth century Italian literature. Her last, harrowingly confessional novel, A Piercing Cry (Un grido lacerante), appeared in 1981. Banti also wrote art criticism and monographs on painters (Lorenzo Lotto, Fra Angelico, Vel¾zquez, Monet), literary criticism and film reviews, and translated novels by Thackery, Colette, Alain Fournier, and Virginia Woolf. She died in Ronchi di Massa (Tuscanny) in 1985.
