Ciudad de Dios (Spanish Edition)

E.L. Doctorow Author

Image Not Available

En La ciudad de Dios, E.L. Doctorow entrelaza recuerdos, acontecimientos historicos y reflexiones, todo ello proyectado sobre una idea central: la realidad contemporanea de Dios. El eje del relato es la desaparicion de la gigantesca cruz de laton que pendia sobre el altar de St. Timothy's, una iglesia episcopal de Manhattan, que reaparece a los pocos dias en el tejado de una sinagoga en el otro extremo de la isla. / New York at the end of the 20th century--hardly St. Augustine's city of God--is the canvas on which Doctorow paints an impressionistic portrait of man's frail moral nature and the possibilities of redemption. Challenging and provocative, this rambling narrative is a mix of alternating voices that touch on such matters as theology, popular music, astronomy, physics and science, war, carnal love, the verisimilitude of film to life (and distortions thereof).

Book Description Miscelánea Editores, 2009. Rustica. Book Condition: Nuevo. Español 378 páginas / pages 21 largo 14 ancho Nueva York a finales del siglo XX es, difícilmente, la ciudad que San Agustín soñó. Lo que sí es: una metrópolis que está a punto de entrar en un nuevo milenio, en la que el caos reina y donde Dios brilla por su ausencia. En otoño de 1999 una cruz de latón desparece del altar de una iglesia episcopaliana del East Village para aparecer más tarde en el techo de una sinagoga del Upper West Side. Everett, un escritor en busca de inspiración, se interesará por este extraño suceso y con esa excusa entablará una relación amistosa el párroco de la iglesia saqueada, el librepensador Thomas Pemberton. Al mismo tiempo, el párroco conocerá al rabino Joshua Gruen, que dirige la sinagoga donde aparece finalmente la cruz. Juntos discuten sobre lo válido de la religión en un siglo que ha vivido barbaries inconcebibles con un derramamiento de sangre que pareciera inacabable. Como punto de fuga de estas conversaciones encontramos a Sarah Blumenthal, la esposa de Joshua y rabino ella misma. Este personaje nos habla de la historia de su padre durante el Holocausto y de un manuscrito que escondió en el gueto. Todas estas voces entrecruzadas constituyen el bastidor que da cuerpo a una novela que oscila entre la tragedia más desconcertante y la comedia del absurdo; que incluye partes de letras de canciones populares de las tres primeras décadas del siglo XX así como especulaciones sobre la naturaleza del infinito; que contiene los apuntes de un observador de aves y una descripción en verso libre de una batalla aérea de la segunda Guerra Mundial Este es el lienzo sobre el que Doctorow pinta un retrato impresionista de un hombre de frágil moral y de sus posibilidades de redención.
