Read full description of the books Flor de mayo:

Tras la muerte de su marido en el mar, la joven Tona decide montar una taberna de pescadores para poder sobrevivir y criar a sus dos hijos, Pascualo y Tonet; mientras Pascualo, el mayor, crece ayudando a su madre y aprendiendo el oficio de pescador con el Tío Batiste, el hijo pequeño, Tonet, vive como quiere, huyendo de las responsabilidades.

El tiempo pasa y Tonet decide alistarse a la Marina Real, para desconsuelo de su madre, que soñaba verlo casado con Rosario, quien goza de una posición acomodada; por su parte, Pascualo se casa con la hermosa Dolores, pescadera de mala reputación que tuvo una aventura con Tonet. A su regreso, Tonet acepta casarse con Rosario, pero el amor que ella siente por él no es mútuo. Pronto aparecen los malos tratos, y cuando Tonet acaba con todos sus ahorros, Rosario se ve obligada a realizar los trabajos más humildes para mantenerle.

Mientras, Tonet ha empezado un romance con la mujer de su hermano, provocando las murmuraciones de todo el pueblo, rumores a los que Pascualo no da crédito. Cuando Dolores da a luz a Pascualet, Pascualo decide emprender su propio negocio, con una barca propia, la Flor de Mayo; pero en el segundo viaje de la barca, los rumores se confirmarán, culminando con la triste tragedia que siempre ha acompañado a los hombres de la mar.

Read information about the author

Ebook Flor de mayo read Online! Vicente Blasco Ibáñez (January 29, 1867 – January 28, 1928) was a Spanish realist novelist writing in Spanish, a screenwriter and occasional film director.

Born in Valencia, today he is best known in the English-speaking world for his World War I novel The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. He is also known for his political activities.

He finished studying law, but hardly practised. He divided his time between politics, literature. He was a fan of Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra.

His life, it can be said, tells a more interesting story than his novels. He was a militant Republican partisan in his youth and founded a newspaper, El Pueblo (translated as either The Town or The People) in his hometown. The newspaper aroused so much controversy that it was brought to court many times and censored. He made many enemies and was shot and almost killed in one dispute. The bullet was caught in the clasp of his belt. He had several stormy love affairs.

He volunteered as the proofreader for the novel Noli Me Tangere, in which the Filipino patriot José Rizal expressed his contempt of the Spanish colonization of the Philippines. He traveled to Argentina in 1909 where two new cities, Nueva Valencia and Cervantes, were created. He gave conferences on historical events and Spanish literature. Tired and disgusted with government failures and inaction, Vicente Blasco Ibáñez moved to Paris, France at the beginning of World War I.

He was a supporter of the Allies in World War I.

He died in Menton, France at the age of 61.
