By Abelardo Castillo

Todos los cuentos de Abelardo Castillo en un sólo volumen.


«Hace años vengo sintiendo que mis cuentos pertenecen a un solo libro, Los mundos reales, único libro de cuentos que comencé a inventar antes de los dieciocho años, que crece y se modifica conmigo, y en el que encarnizadamente trabajaré toda mi vida.»

Un canon cuentístico de los angeles narrativa argentina no podría soslayar -acaso junto a Borges y a Cortázar- los angeles obra de Abelardo Castillo.

Situados como al ultimate de un meticuloso proceso de influencias (Poe, Sartre, Arlt, Borges, Thomas Mann), sus cuentos -de impecable escritura- auscultan lo cotidiano hasta despojarlo de toda familiaridad. No poco se ha dicho de estos mundos reales y siempre fracasaron los intentos de clasificarlos. Lo cierto es que Castillo recurre a una tradición sólo para reinventarla, para deshilvanar, en esquirlas de misteriosa lucidez, l. a. trama de lo real.

La crítica ha dicho...

«Castillo escribe cuentos, es decir sistemas cerrados, y no meros relatos en los que habitualmente no se pasa del recorte arbitrario de una situación sin esa tensión que le da al cuento su valor de trampolín psíquico.»

Julio Cortázar

«La poesía es una manera de vivir, no es una mera función de lanzar al mundo criaturas poéticas. Y, a mi entender, el secreto de Abelardo Castillo estaría en esa difícil y abnegada vocación existencial.»

Leopoldo Marechal

«Abelardo Castillo, un nombre vivo para agregar a l. a. tradición literaria representada por Borges, Arlt o Cortázar. Un escritor de raza, polémico, incómodo y perturbador. Uno de los grandes.»

La maestra dei colori (Italian Edition) - download pdf or read online

| December 7, 2017 | admin | 0

By Aimee Bender

l. a. scrittura di Aimee Bender è da sempre un inconfondibile combine di realismo e fantasia; in questa nuova raccolta di racconti l. a. sua voce, carica di sensualità e magia, continua a ridisegnare il mondo in maniera originale, senza concessioni al sentimentalismo e ai cliché della narrativa «femminile». Alcune storie sono ambientate al giorno d’oggi, fra youngster al centro commerciale o studentesse in un campus universitario; in altre fa capolino l’elemento surreale (un ragazzino che soffre di «analfabetismo facciale», cioè non riesce a distinguere il viso delle persone e l. a. loro espressione; un vecchietto inoffensivo che è convinto di essere un criminale nazista); altre ancora sono incantevoli esempi di «realismo magico» (una sarta viene rapita e condotta in un paese dell’Asia dove dovrà rammendare le tigri a cui si stanno strappando through le strisce) o rivisitazioni di fiabe classiche. Fin dal 1999 il New Yorker aveva segnalato Aimee Bender come uno dei «venti scrittori in step with il 21° secolo»; l. a. maestra dei colori, accolta da elogi unanimi da parte della critica statunitense e inserita dal ny instances nella lista dei libri più importanti dell’anno, non fa che riconfermarne il talento.
