9788402420961: Cuento de La Criada, El (Bruguera Narrativa) (Spanish Edition)

El cuento de la criada, una de las novelas más célebres y prestigiosas de Margaret Atwood, constituye una mirada futurista a una sociedad totalitaria. Una mirada terrible y lúcida que denuncia la barbarie que pueden llegar a alcanzar los puritanismos extremos de toda índole y las ansias de dominio sobre los seres humanos privados del ejercicio del derecho a la libertad. En el estado de Gilead, donde tras una hecatombe nuclear, la población ha visto disminuida su capacidad de reproducción, las Criadas, vestidas con hábitos rojos de la cabeza a los pies, con el rostro cubierto por un velo transparente y enmarcado por una toca blanca, desempeñan una función esencial: concebir y dar a luz a futuros ciudadanos. Destinadas a esta empresa suprema, viven enclaustradas y reducidas a ser un cuerpo con una única misión: reproducirse. / A gripping vision of our society radically overturned by a theocratic revolution, Margaret Atwoods The Handmaid's Tale has become one of the most powerful and most widely read novels of our time. Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead, serving in the household of the enigmatic Commander and his bitter wife. She may go out once a day to markets whose signs are now pictures because women are not allowed to read. She must pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, for in a time of declining birthrates her value lies in her fertility, and failure means exile to the dangerously polluted Colonies. Offred can remember a time when she lived with her husband and daughter and had a job, before she lost even her own name. Now she navigates the intimate secrets of those who control her every move, risking her life in breaking the rules.
