9780801315893: Crónica de una muerte anunciada (Chronicle of a Death Foretold)

Anda, nina: dinos quien fue. Ella se demoro apenas el tiempo necesario para decir el nombre. Lo busco en las tinieblas, lo encontro a primera vista entre los tantos y tantos nombres confundibles de es mundo y del otro y lo dejo clavado en la pared con su dardo certero, como a una mariposa cuya sentencia estaba escrita desde siempre. -Santiago Nasar -dijo.>> Basado en un suceso real, la reconstruccion literaria, laberintica y polifonica del ineluctable y brutal asesinato de un hombre en una remota poblacion fluvial caribena significa la apuesta mas arriesgada de Gabriel Garcia Marquez hacia una novela total. Microcosmos tragico, explora el ancestral atavismo de la virgen en la cultura hispanica, donde se entretejen las ideas de la moral publica, el honor familiar y la conciencia de clase, al tiempo que elabora una magistral vuelta de tuerca sobre el indisoluble vinculo entre el amor y la muerte, lo que, junto con el resto de su obra, le valdria a Gabo recibir el Premio Nobel al ano siguiente de sus publicacion.

Product Description:

Un hombre regresa al pueblo donde ocurrió un asesinato desconcertante 27 años atrás, con la determinación de descubrir la verdad. Todos parecen estar de acuerdo en que Bayardo San Román, sólo unas horas después de su matrimonio con la bella Angela Vicario, la devuelve por deshonrada a la casa paterna. La atribulada familia fuerza a la novia a revelar el nombre de su primer amante; y los hermanos gemelos de ella anuncian su intención de matar a Santiago Nasar por haber deshonrado a su hermana.

Sin embargo, si todos sabían que se iba a cometer un asesinato, ¿por qué nadie trató de impedirlo? Cuanto más se sabe de este asunto, menos se comprende, y cuando la historia al fin se precipita a su inesperada conclusión, una sociedad entera —no sólo un par de asesinos— está siendo enjuiciada.

From the Back Cover:

“Exquisitamente desgarradora ... muy peculiar y brillantemente concebida ... como una novela detectivesca metafísica”. — New York Times Book Review

“Esta investigación de un asesinato cometido hace años se convierte en una exploración alucinante, una búsqueda a tientas, en la oscuridad que se cierne alrededor de los propósitos humanos, de la verdad que contínuamente se nos escapa”. — New York Review of Books

“Brillante ... Una pequeña obra maestra ... casi podemos percibir, oler y oír este rincón caribeño, tan olvidado del mundo, que nos brinda García Márquez”. — San Francisco Chronicle

“Tan impresionante y difícil de olvidar como un intenso condimento; un examen a fondo del juego entre complicidad y fatalidad ... de ejecución exquisita”. — Christian Science Monitor

“Un tour de force . . . En una prosa frugal y a la vez preñada de significado, García Márquez nos da no sólo una crónica sino el retrato de un pueblo y de su espíritu colectivo ... no sólo de una familia, sino de una cultura entera”. — Washington Post Book World
