10 curiosities about literature

Te contamos algunas curiosidades sobre lectura y literatura

1. The longest book in the world is ‘En busca del tiempo perdido’, of Marcel Proust. Written between 1908 and 1922, it holds the Guinness World Records for the longest book in the world with 3,031 pages. However, the real 'winner' is Artamène ou le Grand Cyrus, published in the 17th century. 13,095 pages of nothing, contained in 10 volumes.

2. Winnie The PoohMrs Piggle-Wiggle and El Hobbit were written by their respective authors as cuentos infantiles para sus hijos. Nothing to do with the first with the last, really.

3. The world's best-selling novel is El Quijote by Miguel de Cervantes, which has sold more than 500 million copies. The book world's best selling is The Bible.

4. The most expensive book in the world is a copy of Códice Leicester , of Leonardo DaVinci. Paid for him $ 30.8 million, and the lucky buyer was Bill Gates, in 1994.

5. Ernest Hemingway hated the cover of El Gran Gatsby , by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and so he wrote in his memoirs, published in 1964. To his surprise, Fitzgerald basically told him that "you cannot judge a book by its cover."

6. Do you know the name of the Frankenstein monster? No, it is not Frankenstein, although many think it is. She is never given a name within the novel, although during a public reading, Mary Shelley referred to her as “Adam”.

7. The most coveted book from the Harry Potter saga is, curiously, Los cuentos de Beedle, el bardo . They are looking specifically for seven copies that the author of the saga, J.K. Rowling, wrote by hand, and whose covers are encrusted with jewels. Six of those copies belong to part of Rowling's team and the seventh was auctioned, fetching a whopping $ 4 million, destined entirely for an orphanage in Romania.

8. The book Farenheit 451 , by Ray Bradbury, owes its title to la temperatura en la que las páginas de un libro arde. The book tells the story of a firefighter who burns forbidden books because they cause discord and suffering in a Western civilization enslaved by the media.

9. The character that has been played by the most actors has been Sherlock Holmes. Ian McKellen, Buster Keaton, Peter Cushing, Roger Moore, Christopher Plummer, Michael Caine, Charlton Heston, Jeremy Irons, Rupert Everett, Benedict Cumberbatch and Robert Downey Jr., among others, have been in his shoes. 21, only on screen.

10. In 1955, only one publisher was willing to publish Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, since the novel had sown controversy in literary circles. Only after G.P became a hit in the United States did Putnam change his mind about publishing it.s
