The Sonnets: A Dual-Language Edition with Parallel Text (Penguin Classics)

The complete sonnets of one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century – in English and Spanish

This landmark collection brings together for the first time in any language all of the sonnets of one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. More intimate and personally revealing than his fiction, and more classical in form than the inventive metafictions that are his hallmark, the sonnets reflect Borges in full maturity, paying homage to many of his literary and philosophical paragons–Cervantes, Milton, Whitman, Emerson, Joyce, Spinoza–while at the same time engaging the mysteries immanent in the quotidian.

A distinguished team of translators–Edith Grossman, Willis Barnstone, John Updike, Mark Strand, Robert Fitzgerald, Alastair Reid, Charles Tomlinson, and Stephen Kessler–lend their gifts to these sonnets, many of which appear here in English for the first time, and all of which accompany their Spanish originals on facing pages.

Twas the Night Before Christmas - 200th Anniversary Edition MULTILINGUAL

A brilliantly reincarnation of a classic available in several bilingual editions

 
Albert Einstein has been quoted to have said that creativity is intelligence having fun, and that imagination is more important than knowledge. Creativity is the highest form of intelligence because it goes beyond knowledge recall and extends into knowledge creation. Did you know those creative young children who use their imagination are more effective, resourceful, resilient, and confident than their peers? Creative children are also better equipped to overcome obstacles and navigate changes in life. This book makes the perfect gift for creative little boys and girls, teachers, librarians, and parents who raise bilingual and multilingual kids. Perfect for all children ages 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and up, depending on their fluency level in the target language. Most suitable for grade 1, grade, 2, grade 3, and parents and language teachers who appreciate a well-written and beautifully illustrated bilingual book. The use of large fonts and the choice of a white background for the text make it ideal for early readers. The book has been translated by Martina Pelagallo, a professional translator with extensive experience in translating movies, series, and books, including the children's book “Josh the Baby Otter”. Tiziana Fiorito, an experienced translator and librarian, did the proofreading. “Nelly’s Box” has 40 pages, just above the industry standard of 32 pages, and it appears as a 20-page spread eBook on Kindle.PROUD TO BE BILINGUAL series by BILINGO BOOKS The Itanglish Boy / Il Bambino Itanglese 🌐 BILINGUAL The Spanglish Girl / La Chica Espanglish 🌐 BILINGUAL The Frenglish Boy / Le Garçon Franglais 🌐 BILINGUAL The Mexiglish Girl / La Chica Mexiglish 🌐 BILINGUAL
