9788420412337: La ciudad y los perros. Edición conmemorativa del cincuentenario (Spanish Edition)

The Real Academia Española and the Asociación de Academias de la Lengua Española have enthusiastically published a commemorative edition of this memorable work of fiction. In 1962, La ciudad y los perros was awarded Seix Barral’s Premio Biblioteca Breve. That same year, upon winning the award, authorities at the Leoncio Prado Military School—which Vargas Llosa attended as a teenager and used as the setting for the novel—burned 1,000 copies in an official ceremony that took place in the patio of the school … and so began the literary adventures of Nobel Prize-winning author Mario Vargas Llosa’s first novel. Considered one of the best Spanish-language novels of the 20th century, in La ciudad y los perros a group of youngsters learn to survive amidst a ruthless and violent military discipline, deeply rooted racial prejudice and gaping socio-economic differences. The Four angry cadets who have formed an inner circle in an attempt to ward off the boredom and stifling confinement of the military academy set off a chain of events that starts with a theft and leads to murder and suicide. La ciudad y los perros presents, with great accuracy and power, the cadets’ nightmare life: brutal initiation rites, poker in the latrines, drinking contests; and, above all else, the strange military code which, whether broken or followed, can only destroy.

En 1962, La ciudad y los perros recibia el Premio Biblioteca Breve. Asi comenzaba la andadura literaria de esta obra considerada una de las mejores novelas en espanol del siglo xx.
Los personajes de La ciudad y los perros, un grupo de jovenes que se ''educan'' en una disciplina militar implacable y violenta, aprenden a sobrevivir en un ambiente en el que estan muy arraigados los prejuicios raciales y las diferencias entre clases sociales y economicas; donde todos se muestran como no son en realidad y la transgresion de las normas establecidas parece ser la unica salida.
