Item description for Padre Brown Esencial by G. K. Chesterton...

Padre Brown Esencial es un libro bilinge especialmente editado para facilitar la prctica de la lectura en ingls a los lectores cuya lengua materna es el espaol. El original en ingls se encuentra en las pginas impares y la traduccin al espaol en las pares, facilitando la consulta de los significados en forma inmediata, permitiendo la lectura fluida en todo momento y lugar sin necesidad de interrumpirla para recurrir al diccionario. Los textos no estn simplificados ni condensados y para su total comprensin el lector cuenta con un glosario de expresiones idiomticas. El padre Brown es un sacerdote y detective que se enfrenta a crmenes extraos, para los cuales la explicacin irracional parece la ms lgica. Crmenes que Brown, con su capacidad de observacin y conocimiento del alma humana, resuelve en forma sencilla y racional. Los dos cuentos de este volumen, El martillo de Dios y El hombre invisible, han sido seleccionados por su diversidad y claridad gramatical. El creador del personaje es el autor ingls G. K. Chesterton, un maestro en el manejo de la metfora y la paradoja, que alcanz fama mundial con los cuentos del padre Brown. Compartir la complicidad de las palabras originales extiende el vnculo autor-lector, profundizando la compresin de los precisos matices expresivos y revelndonos sus particulares recursos. El texto completo, la cuidada traduccin, el glosario y la biografa del autor permiten que el lector ample su vocabulario, desarrolle comprensin por contexto e incorpore estructuras lingsticas en forma dinmica. Este mtodo de lectura facilita y acelera el aprendizaje.
