9788437615172: El Senor Presidente

Si en Leyendas de Guatemala se produjo la toma de conciencia de Miguel Angel Asturias de la identidad nacional de su pais, en El Senor Presidente se produce una denuncia de la dictadura en Guatemala. La importancia de esta novela es enorme como modelo directo o indirecto para los autores de narraciones que tratan tambien el tema de la dictadura: Carpentier, Garcia Marquez o Roa Bastos. Encarna ademas el patron de la nueva novela y el realismo magico.

Book Description Ediciones Catedra S.A. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 432 pages. Dimensions: 6.8in. x 4.3in. x 0.9in.La descripcin y la denuncia de las tiranas latinoamericanas han servido de trasfondo argumental a novelas de gran calidad literaria. EL SEOR PRESIDENTE, inspirada en la figura del guatemalteco Estrada Cabrera, elev a su mxima capacidad expresiva esa lnea narrativa y lanz a la fama a Miguel ngel Asturias (1899-1974), Premio Nbel de Literatura en 1967. El relato constituye un descenso a los infiernos a travs de la reconstruccin de una atmsfera de pesadilla, forjada por el ejercicio ilcito del poder y por la omnipresencia de la tortura y el miedo. La visin esperpntica de la realidad y el lirismo descarnado logran la transfiguracin de una situacin histrica concreta en una realidad literaria autnoma. La novela El Seor Presidente se llam primero Los mendigos polticos. Era un cuento que Miguel ngel Asturias ya tena escrito cuando en 1923 parti de Guatemala para instalarse en Europa. Asturias haba sido testigo desde muy joven de la situacin de desigualdad entre las clases, de la explotacin injusta del campesinado y de la sensacin palpable del miedo a los horrores de las dictaduras, pero no comprenda an las razones por las que tales circunstancias existan y cul era la forma de conjurar la situacin. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9788437615172
