LibriVox recording of Abel Sánchez by Miguel de Unamuno. Read in Spanish by Mongope. Unamuno nos pone frente a frente con una de las pasiones humanas más viles y destructivas: La envidia. Joaquín y Abel son amigos íntimos desde la infancia y ya desde el instituto Joaquín quiere tener y ser todo lo que representa Abel. Abel es un muchacho popular entre los compañeros, simpático, al que le encanta la pintura y mucho menos los libros.

Delve into three of Spanish philosopher Miguel de Unamuno's most haunting parables. This essential Unamuno reader begins with the full-length novel Abel Sanchez, a modern retelling of the story of Cain and Abel. Also included are two remarkable short stories, The Madness of Doctor Montarco and San Manuel Bueno, Martyr, featuring quixotic, philosophically existential characters confronted by the dull ache of modernity.

Miguel de Unamuno, in full Miguel De Unamuno Y Jugo, (born Sept. Unamuno’s novels are intensely psychological depictions of agonized characters who illustrate and give voice to his own philosophical ideas. 29, 1864, Bilbao, Spain-died Dec. 31, 1936, Salamanca), educator, philosopher, and author whose essays had considerable influence in early 20th-century Spain. His most famous novel is Abel Sánchez: una historia de pasión (1917; Abel Sanchez), a modern re-creation of the biblical story of Cain and Abel, which centres on the painfully conflicting impulses of the character representing Cain.

Miguel de Unamuno (1864 –1936) fue un escritor y filósofo español perteneciente a la generación del 98. En su obra cultivó gran variedad de géneros literarios como novela, ensayo, teatro y poesía. Fue, asimismo, diputado del Congreso de los Diputados de 1931 a 1933 por la circunscripción de Salamanca.

Abel Sánchez(Spanish). Unamuno escoge, en este libro, el tema de la envidia y odio como argumento de la obra. El autor insiste en que Abel Sánchez no es una historia libresca, si no que esta sacada de la vida social que siente y sufre en torno suyo y de su propia vida. Esta novela debe mucho a las circunstancias personales y nacionales de la época en la que se escribió.

I love de Unamuno's philosophical writings, but I love his fiction even more. It's so refreshingly different from other fiction.

Great short stories compacted into a book. Classic stories that are on a need base to be read.

We only had to read the last story of this collection of short stories but I loved it. It definitely presents you with a saint like image who doesn't even believe in his own cause. Religion without goodness or goodness without religion? Which do you believe the author emphasized?

I love to read, this is the first book I ever through out. I wouldn't even give
It away. 10 pages did me in...awful....dark and depressing.

We are treated to three short stories; or, more properly, a novella and two short stories written in the early 1900's and translated from the Spanish. (The author is Basque.) All three stories have religious overtones (Abel is part of a Cain and Abel envy parody) and all three revolve around men that some might consider "mad." (One of the three dies in an asylum.) Like Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment, the stories reflect ideas from the newly developing field of psychology that was spreading though Europe.

The novella, which has the same title as the book, is about an imagined rivalry between two men. I say imagined, because it exists only in the mind of one of the men. But it lasts his entire life, from youth, when he was rejected by a young woman who married the man that became his rival, until he is on his death bed. The rivalry consumes him even as the two men maintain a surface friendship throughout their lives. In another story, a very good doctor publishes bizarre fiction. His writing impacts his practice and he can't figure out why. The third story is about a priest, so kindly and religious, and such a master at bringing unbelievers into the church, that he is considered a local saint. Yet his burden in life is that that he doesn't believe in God.

One of the great thinkers of the 20th century, this Spanish poet, philosopher, novelist and playwrite is, unfortunately, too often over shadowed by the work of later existentialists. Unamuno's short stories are reflective and unsettling. This book contains one of his most popular stories, "San Manuel Bueno, Matyr," about a priest who doesn't believe in God. Though the idea my seem cliche to a contemporary audience, don't underestimate the power of Unamuno's passionate and moving verse.

..and other themes are treated in this volume. Abel Sanchez, the title narrative, is an incredible reterlling of the Biblical story of Cain and Abel. Unamuno is able to interweave christian faith and spanish culturalism in order to create a morally compelling story. This collection has had a profound influence on me. I highly recommend it if you are interested in Christianity, Spanish literature, or even good literature.
I read the Spanish version of this story a year ago and loved it. Unamuno probes the psychology of envy, which he describes as "the national disease of Spain", showing the self-hatred involved. This is a story of Cain and Abel told with loving understanding for Cain.
