Literatura en español for different ages and capability levels:
Little Red Riding Hood - Caperucita Roja
Goldilocks and The Three Bears - Ricitos de Oro y Los Tres Osos. There are multiple versions out there, but I like this one for it's simplicity. The illustrations also match the story.
Last weekend I found Kipling's Just So Stories en español as well as Three poems by Edgar Allen Poe en español, including "Eldorado"
Next, I looked up free e-texts of a famous Spanish Play called La Vida es Sueño by Pedro Calderón de la Barca. For synopsis, theme, discussion, etc. go here. I remember studying lines from this in Spanish IV in preparation for state competition over 25 years ago! My events were: Poetry recitation, sight reading, and a dramatic interpretation from this play.
There is the famous soliloquy by the character Segismundo at the end which ranks up there with Hamlet's.
In English it is:
- What is life? A frenzy.
- What is life? An illusion,
- A shadow, a fiction,
- And the greatest profit is small;
- For all of life is a dream,
- And dreams are nothing but dreams.
This first link is the first version of the play. There is another version available here. The text is also available in inglés.
Lastly for today, I'm including a different link for hymns en español than what I've used in the past (cyberhymnal.com).
Himnarios en español / inglés. The Doxology is available at this link, as well!
I am :-)
