Tradición y emancipación cultural en América Latina - Jorge Turner Morales,Rossana Cassigoli Salamón Preview:

Este libro contiene ensayos de enfoques antropológicos, filosóficos, sociales o políticos, para ampliar la mirada especialista sobre América Latina, también trabajos novedosos que se sitúan en la brecha entre las ciencias sociales y humanas, dejando muchos temas abiertos para su discusión. Este V y último tomo de la colección El debate latinoamericano se refiere a temas de cultura, tradición y emancipación en nuestro subcontinente, tras considerar que el pensamiento crítico debe ser la brújula que más contribuya a las correcciones de los falsos rumbos y a las verdaderas orientaciones para nuestro bienestar en tiempos en que el neoliberalismo ha facilitado una política imperial que quiere hacer tabla rasa con los principios del derecho internacional..

El Pez en el fregadero y otros relatos - José Luis Alfaro García Preview:

Este libro no pretende hacer literatura. En él se recogen unos relatos casi sin paisaje, con pocos, tres o cuatro a lo sumo, personajes que repiten nombre propio. Con un desenlace a menudo dramático, a menudo fantástico. De tal manera, que, sobre todo, se intenta crear en ellos un clima, con una enérgica resolución, que cierra, expedito, su final. Por los ejercicios estilísticos, vienen a ser cada uno de su padre y de su madre: o lo que es lo mismo, carezco de estilo propio; aquí se usa y se sirve al texto, a donde quiera que desemboque, de antemano, éste. Pese a su corta extensión, procuran introducir al lector en una atmósfera subyugante, a ratos claustrofóbicas, que pronto lo envuelve, lo atrapa, deseoso de desentrañar su conclusivo final. Y, a modo de excusa, cito a margarite Yourcenar: "Hasta los errores hacen al libro"..

Fictional Environments - Victoria Saramago Preview:

Fictional Environments: Mimesis, Deforestation, and Development in Latin America investigates how fictional works have become sites for the production of knowledge, imagination, and intervention in Latin American environments. It investigates the dynamic relationship between fictional images and real places, as the lasting representations of forests, rural areas, and deserts in novels clash with collective perceptions of changes like deforestation and urbanization. From the backlands of Brazil to a developing Rio de Janeiro, and from the rainforests of Venezuela and Peru to the Mexican countryside, rapid deforestation took place in Latin America in the second half of the twentieth century. How do fictional works and other cultural objects dramatize, resist, and intervene in these ecological transformations? Through analyses of work by João Guimarães Rosa, Alejo Carpentier, Juan Rulfo, Clarice Lispector, and Mario Vargas Llosa, Victoria Saramago shows how novels have inspired conservationist initiatives and offered counterpoints to developmentalist policies, and how environmental concerns have informed the agendas of novelists as essayists, politicians, and public intellectuals. This book seeks to understand the role of literary representation, or mimesis, in shaping, sustaining, and negotiating environmental imaginaries during the deep, ongoing transformations that have taken place from the 1950s to the present..

This Is Water - David Foster Wallace Preview:

In this rare peak into the personal life of the author of numerous bestselling novels, gain an understanding of David Foster Wallace and how he became the man that he was. Only once did David Foster Wallace give a public talk on his views on life, during a commencement address given in 2005 at Kenyon College. The speech is reprinted for the first time in book form in This is Water. How does one keep from going through their comfortable, prosperous adult life unconsciously? How do we get ourselves out of the foreground of our thoughts and achieve compassion? The speech captures Wallace's electric intellect as well as his grace in attention to others. After his death, it became a treasured piece of writing reprinted in The Wall Street Journal and the London Times, commented on endlessly in blogs, and emailed from friend to friend. Writing with his one-of-a-kind blend of causal humor, exacting intellect, and practical philosophy, David Foster Wallace probes the challenges of daily living and offers advice that renews us with every reading..

Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter - Mario Vargas Llosa Preview:

Mario Vargas Llosa's brilliant, multilayered novel is set in the Lima, Peru, of the author's youth, where a young student named Marito is toiling away in the news department of a local radio station. His young life is disrupted by two arrivals. The first is his aunt Julia, recently divorced and thirteen years older, with whom he begins a secret affair. The second is a manic radio scriptwriter named Pedro Camacho, whose racy, vituperative soap operas are holding the city's listeners in thrall. Pedro chooses young Marito to be his confidant as he slowly goes insane. Interweaving the story of Marito's life with the ever-more-fevered tales of Pedro Camacho, Vargas Llosa's novel is hilarious, mischievous, and masterful, a classic named one of the best books of the year by the New York Times Book Review..

La desheredada. Benito Pérez Galdós Fragmento de la obra ...¿Se han reunido todos los ministros?... ¿Puede empezar el Consejo?... ¡El coche, el coche, o no llegaré a tiempo al Senado!... Esta vida es intolerable... ¡Y el país, ese bendito monstruo con cabeza de barbarie y cola de ingratitud, no sabe apreciar nuestra abnegación, paga nuestros sacrificios con injurias, y se regocija de vernos humillados! Pero ya te arreglaré yo, país de las monas. ¿Cómo te llamas? Te llamas Envidiópolis, la ciudad sin alturas; y como eres puro suelo, simpatizas con todo lo que cae... ¿Cuánto va? Diez millones, veinticuatro millones, ciento sesenta y siete millones, doscientas treinta y tres mil cuatrocientas doce pesetas con setenta y cinco céntimos...; esa es la cantidad. Ya no te me olvidarás, pícara; ya te pillé, ya no te me escapas, ¡oh cantidad temblorosa, escurridiza, inaprehensible, como una gota de mercurio! Aquí te tengo dentro del puño, y para que no vuelvas a marcharte, jugando, al caos del olvido, te pongo en esta gaveta de mi cerebro, donde dice: Subvención personal... Permítame Su Señoría que me admire de la despreocupación con que Su Señoría y los amigos de Su Señoría confiesan haber infringido la Constitución... No me importan los murmullos. Mandaré despejar las tribunas... ¡A votar, a votar! ¿Votos a mí? ¿Queréis saber con qué poderes gobierno? Ahí los tenéis: se cargan por la culata. He aquí mis votos: me los ha fabricado Krupp... Pero ¿qué ruido es este? ¿Quién corretea en mi cerebro? ¡Eh!, ¿quién anda arriba?... Ya, ya; es la gota de mercurio, que se ha salido de su gaveta....
