Book Description

Mar 2005
This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.

One of the most beautiful works of Latin-American literature. A young man discovered the power of love when he fallen in love with the virginal Maria. A story to read only to remember how difficult being human can be.

4.0 out of 5 stars María by Yorge Isaacs 12 May 2012
By Daniel - Published on
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars tiny print 6 Mar 2012
By Seaoak - Published on
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.
