About this ebook

"Los cuatro jinetes del Apocalipsis" es una novela ambientada en 1914 en Francia y narra las vicisitudes de la Primera Guerra Mundial. El punto de vista es el de un natural de un país neutral aunque claramente decantado por el lado francés de los Aliados frente a Alemania. Debido a sus diferencias políticas, dos familias provenientes de un tronco común, los Desnoyers y los Von Hartrott, se enfrentan. Tras la muerte del patriarca, Julio Madariaga, los Hartrott se marchan a Alemania y los Desnoyers a Francia. Ambas familias terminan combatiendo en bandos opuestos en la Primera Guerra Mundial. La novela discurre ágilmente por los escenarios dantescos de una Europa rota, sobre cuyos desolados campos de batalla el gran vitalista que fue Blasco hace latir finalmente, salvaje e invencible, el deseo de vivir. Vicente Blasco Ibáñez (1867 – 1928) fue un escritor, periodista y político español.

Vicente Blasco Ibañez

Vicente Blasco Ibáñez (1867-1928) was a Spanish novelist, journalist, and political activist. Born in Valencia, he studied law at university, graduating in 1888. As a young man, he founded the newspaper El Pueblo and gained a reputation as a militant Republican. After a series of court cases over his controversial publication, he was arrested in 1896 and spent several months in prison. A staunch opponent of the Spanish monarchy, he worked as a proofreader for Filipino nationalist José Rizal’s groundbreaking novel Noli Me Tangere (1887). Blasco Ibáñez’s first novel, The Black Spider (1892), was a pointed critique of the Jesuit order and its influence on Spanish life, but his first major work, Airs and Graces (1894), came two years later. For the next decade, his novels showed the influence of Émile Zola and other leading naturalist writers, whose attention to environment and social conditions produced work that explored the struggles of working-class individuals. His late career, characterized by romance and adventure, proved more successful by far. Blood and Sand (1908), The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (1916), and Mare Nostrum (1918) were all adapted into successful feature length films by such directors as Fred Niblo and Rex Ingram.
