Notable Quotes: Xatakaciencia - ¿Qué leo? ¿Libros de ciencia clásicos o libros de ciencia actuales? TOP 10 Libros de culto. Un libro de “culto” no es necesariamente un bestseller, ni tampoco un clásico (aunque a veces sean ambas cosas), los libros de culto son esas obras que nos cambian de alguna manera.

Suelen ser libros polémicos, que construyen una especie de comunidades emocionales alrededor de ellos, son obras que consiguen aglutinar a su alrededor a un comunidad de lectores que se identifican entre ellos, con el cambio, con la revelación. Es complicado definir a un libro de culto, aunque sí resulta sencillo detectar a uno de ellos, suelen ser obras que han estimulado el nacimiento de subculturas a partir de sus hojas, aunque tal vez lo más importante es ese eco transgeneracional que dejan a su paso.

En El Camino de Jack Kerouac es un claro ejemplo de este eco, Kerouac fue el padre del Beat de los cincuenta, y su novela En El Camino propició el nacimiento de la contracultura de los 60 y 70 (el movimiento hippie). Uno de los libros más hipnóticos del S. Un libro que no se podía quedar fuera de la lista. Free Books! – 100 Legal Websites To Download Literature.

Charles Bukowski era un cartero gordo, feo y alcohólico, adicto al sexo y a la buena literatura.

Era un tipo fuera de lo normal. Siempre quiso ser escritor, aunque comenzó ganándose la vida lo mejor que pudo con todos los trabajos que se le ponían a tiro. A menudo se le relaciona de manera errónea con la generación Beat, debido a lo parecido de su estilo. Pero Bukowski era diferente, lo suyo era el realismo sucio, que (también erróneamente) se relaciona con decir muchos tacos y muchas guarradas. El realismo sucio elimina todas las figuras retóricas sobrantes, dejando el escrito lo más sencillo posible. Es un estilo minimalista que reduce las narraciones a sus partes más básicas, sus protagonistas suelen ser seres vulgares, que llevan vidas convencionales. (Por favor, escribidores de twitter, antes de proclamaros realistas sucios, preocupaos de saber de qué va el tema, os ahorrará un montón de malos tragos y de vergüenza).

Bukowsky sigue siendo un referente, un icono. Relacionado ¡Ah!

The thing about reading is this: it takes a long time. There are innumerable books in the world, and many more good ones than can be read by any mortal in a lifetime.

It’s hard to choose — especially if you’re a slow reader. So, to go along with the list of the best albums from 1963-2013, here you will find a single must-read book from each of the last 50 years. Of course, this is by its very nature an absurd undertaking, and many books have gotten the short end of the stick — there’s no other way to do it. 1963 — The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath Sylvia Plath’s only novel manages to be both elegant and filled with raw, seething emotion – no small feat, and not the least of the reasons the reading world is still obsessed with her.
