Fundamental titles, the finest translations, full texts enriched with comments by the most eminent specialists and with the guarantee of a careful editing and production process.

Thus, although the Clásicos series – presented in excellent quality editions, with the utmost care taken of container and content – constitutes the backbone of its catalogue, the Contemporáneos series, divided into Fiction and Non Fiction, opens the way for more recent novels and essays and adds enormous literary value to this publishing imprint. For its part, the Selectos series covers poetic anthologies, selected works by certain masters, and small treasures that revel in their uniqueness.
