Product Description

About the Author

Jorge Isaacs (1837-1895) fue un novelista y poeta colombiano del género romántico. Vivió durante la consolidación de la República. Su padre fue un judío inglés procedente de Jamaica, que se instaló primero en el Chocó, donde se enriqueció con la explotación minera aurífera y el comercio con Jamaica, y después en Cali. La obra literaria de Isaacs se reduce a un libro de poemas que publicó en 1864 y a su única novela, María. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

María by Yorge Isaacs 12 May 2012
By Daniel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this 19th century novel in the original Spanish as part of a class, and purchased the English version to go along with it. It was probably a difficult text to translate because of the flowery language (typical of the Romantic period), but one error stuck out like a sore thumb. Shotguns are often used in deer hunting, especially within confined areas when others may be in the vicinity. They are also powerful enough to kill a jaguar ("tigre" in the text). During two "cacerías" (hunts) in the novel the translator used "rifle" instead of the correct word "shotgun" (escopeta). Such a simple error made suspect the rest of the translation. The English version is also partially abridged, with the chapters of the Spanish text often not coinciding with the English.

tiny print 6 Mar. 2012
By Seaoak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
English is my first language but I have a working knowledge of Spanish. I have lived in Cali, Colombia, the home of the author, Jorge Isaacs, and have always wanted to read the beloved story, in Spanish, which is considered a national classic. However, when I received my copy of the book, I was susrprised to see that the font was so tiny. I am still, after several weeks, strugglilng to get through it. I'm not sure I'll finish it because the size of the print is so distracting which makes it especiallly difficult in a second language.
