Read full description of the books:



Cuando tenía doce años, Cosimo Piovasco, barón de Rondo, en un gesto de rebelión contra la tiranía familiar, se encaramó a una encina del parque de la casa paterna. Ese mismo día, el 15 de junio de 1767, encontró a la hija de los marqueses de Ondarivia y le anunció su propósito de no bajar nunca de los árboles. Desde entonces y hasta el final de su vida, Cosimo permanece fiel a una disciplina que él mismo se ha impuesto. La acción fantástica transcurre en las postrimerias del siglo XVIII y en los albores del XIX. Cosimo participa tanto en la revolucion francesa como en las invasiones napoleónicas, pero sin abandonar nunca esa distancia necesaria que le permite estar dentro y fuera de las cosas al mismo tiempo. En esta espléndida obra, Calvino se enfrenta con el que, según él mismo declaró, es su verdadero tema narrativo: 'Una persona se fija voluntariamente una difícil regla y la sigue hasta sus últimas consecuencias, ya que sin ella no sería él mismo ni para sí ni para los otros'.

Read information about the author

Ebook The Baron in the Trees read Online! Italo Calvino was born in Cuba and grew up in Italy. He was a journalist and writer of short stories and novels. His best known works include the Our Ancestors trilogy (1952-1959), the Cosmicomics collection of short stories (1965), and the novels Invisible Cities (1972) and If On a Winter's Night a Traveler (1979).

His style is not easily to classify; much of his writing has an air reminiscent to that of fantastical fairy tales (Our Ancestors, Cosmicomics), although sometimes his writing is more "realistic" and in the scenic mode of observation (Difficult Loves, for example). Some of his writing has been called postmodern, reflecting on literature and the act of reading, while some has been labeled magical realist, others fables, others simply "modern". He wrote: "My working method has more often than not involved the subtraction of weight. I have tried to remove weight, sometimes from people, sometimes from heavenly bodies, sometimes from cities; above all I have tried to remove weight from the structure of stories and from language."
