9781575818382: Las Puertas Del Placer/ Pleasure's Doors (Spanish Edition)

This series of essays capture humanity’s concern that we are mind, body and divine spirit, and through each of these portals we come in contact with ourselves and the world that surrounds us. In Las puertas del placer, readers will find a wonderful work in which all the senses are joined to confirm that flesh and spirit feel in the same manner. Ferré offers an indirect autobiography full of historical allusions to the Caribbean world Puerto Rico is rooted in. Other topics such as: defense for political and linguistic freedom, feminism as a philosophy, and her quest through literature to give life meaning, are also present. Description in Spanish: Las puertas del placer es una colección de ensayos que recoge la preocupación aristotélica del ser humano: somos cuerpo, mente, espíritu de origen divino, y cada una de estas puertas nos permite ponernos en contacto con nosotros mismos y con el mundo, a al vez conflictivo y hermoso, que nos rodea. En estos ensayos, Ferré nos da una autobiografía oblicua llena de alusiones históricas al mundo caribeño en el que se encuentra afincado Puerto Rico. Su defensa de la libertad política y lingüística, su feminismo como filosofía, su búsqueda, a través de la escritura, del sentido de la vida – temas que aparecen a lo largo de toda la obra de Ferré- se resumen aquí de forma contundente.
