Nochebuena [Spanish] free pdf A surreal, magical world serves as the backdrop for an eternal struggle between good and evil in Nikolai Gogol's tale that centers on a young man's love and quest for the most beautiful woman in his Ukrainian village. On Christmas Eve in the idyllic town of Dikanka, witches fly across the night sky, collecting stars in their aprons, while the devil steals the moon and hides it in his pocket, leaving lovers in the dark. Beautiful yet arrogant Oksana offers her heart to whoever can get her the czarina's slippers, and Vakula, the town's blacksmith, enlists the help of the devil--who holds a grudge against him for painting unflattering portraits of him in the church--to retrieve the slippers from Saint Petersburg. The book vividly portrays Ukrainian folklore and typical customs and culture from Gogol's era.
"Un mundo surrealista y magico sirve como telon de fondo para una lucha eterna entre el bien y el mal en este cuento de Nikolai Gogol que se centra en el amor de un muchacho por la mujer mas bella de su pueblito ucraniano y su mision de ganarla. En la ultima noche antes de la Navidad en la idilica aldea de Dikanka, brujas se pasean por el cielo nocturno recogiendo las estrellas en sus mandiles mientras el demonio roba la luna y la esconde en su bolsillo para dejar a oscuras a los enamorados. La bella pero altiva Oksana le ofrece su corazon a quien pueda conseguirle los zapatos de la zarina, y Vakula, el herrero del pueblo, contrata la ayuda del demonio--quien le guarda rencor por pintar retratos poco favorecedores de el en la iglesia--para conseguir los zapatos de San Petersburgo. El libro vividamente retrata el folclore ucraniano y las tipicas tradiciones y culturas de la epoca de Gogol."
