Item description for Libros/books: Todo Lo Que Hay Que Leer/all You Have to Read by Cristiane Zchirnt...

Books have changed the course of universal history; they have opened new horizons and have made available the knowledge of philosophers, poets, scientists and artists. Here, Zschirnt presents a series of books to help us understand the complexity of modern society: from the Bible to Harry Potter through Shakespeare, Beckett and Balzac, from Lope de Vega through Borges and Juan Rulfo; this is a compass to sail through the world of books. Description in Spanish: En el centro de nuestra cultura se encuentran los libros, que han guardado el saber de Occidente durante siglos y lo han transmitido a las siguientes generaciones. Los libros han cambiado el paso de la Historia universal, han abierto nuevos horizontes y han puesto a disposicin de un amplio pblico los conocimientos de filsofos, poetas, cientficos y artistas. Para remediar el abandono que est sufriendo la cultura en los ltimos tiempos debido a un exceso de informacin combinado con un dficit de conocimientos, Christiane Zschirnt ha desempolvado una serie de obras imprescindibles en las que se recoge el saber del mundo occidental. Pero no se ha limitado a elaborar una lista de libros, sino que los ha sacado de las estanteras y los ha limpiado del academicismo que les resta atractivo a los ojos de algunos lectores. De esta forma, la autora ha democratizado la cultura, la ha hecho accesible a todos. Con Libros. Todo lo que hay que leer no se pretende crear un nuevo canon, sino presentar una serie de libros que nos ayuden a comprender la complejidad de la sociedad moderna: de la Biblia a Harry Potter pasando por Leviatn, de Shakespeare a Beckett pasando por Balzac, de Lope de Vega a Cela pasando por Borges y Juan Rulfo. Por eso, Christiane Zschirnt no los ha clasificado cronolgicamente, sino por temas que afectan a nuestra vida cotidiana, como amor, poltica, sexo, economa, mujeres, clsicos triviales, libros de culto, ciberespacio... En suma, una brjula para navegar por el mundo de los libros con introduccin de Dietrich Schwanitz, autor de La cultura.
