9789705800146: La región más transparente (Edición del 50 Aniversario) (Spanish Edition)

To celebrate the happy occurrence of Carlos Fuentes 80th birthday, and his masterpiece s 50th anniversary, the Real Academia Española and the Asociación de Academias have enthusiastically joined the Academia Mexicana de la Lengua in the creation of a commemorative edition of this memorable work of fiction. A pioneer work in the exploration of the use of language, Fuentes' masterpiece, La región más transparente, is credited with influencing not only Fuentes' subsequent works, but also that of his contemporaries. Received with mixed opinions on its publication, the novel was soon flagged as the initial blaze in the historical boom of the New Latin American Novel. The first grand urban novel about post-revolutionary Mexico, it is an unsparing portrayal of Mexico City's upper class and a critical view of Mexico City s past and present.

This edition will be the third published in the Classic Works of the Academies (Obras clasicas de las Academias). This collection of great classics of all times will occasionally publish new titles that will have limited circulation time. As with other works in this collection, scholars from various countries have contributed to the special edition, and Carlos Fuentes himself has revised the text. The titles previously published are Don Quijote de la Mancha, 400th anniversary edition, and Cien años de soledad, 40th anniversary edition.

Prologues in this edition are from: Jose Emilio Pacheco, Vicente Quirarte, Sergio Ramirez, Nelida Pinon, Juan Luis Cebrian, Carmen Iglesias, and Gonzalo Celorio. This edition with text revised by the author, also includes a lexical glossary, an essential bibliography, an index of characters in the novel.

Spanish Description
Carlos Fuentes cumple ochenta anos en este 2008, cuando hace cincuenta que vio la luz La region mas transparente. Mas alla del facil convencionalismo, la feliz coincidencia presta ocasion para rendir homenaje al gran escritor, maestro en muchos generos de las letras hispanas. La Real Academia Espanola y la Asociacion de Academias han acogido con entusiasmo la invitacion de la Academia Mexicana de la Lengua a sumarse a las celebraciones con una edicion conmemorativa de aquella novela memorable. Recibida en el momento de su publicacion con una fuerte division de opiniones -respuesta comprensible a una obra que rompia los moldes tradicionales de la narrativa y presentaba una vision critica del pasado y presente de la ciudad de Mexico-, muy pronto fue senalada como el primer estallido del llamado bum de la Nueva Novela Hispanoamericana. Su valor sustancial radicaba, sin duda, en una exploracion pionera del lenguaje. Frente a Mallarme, que senalaba como tarea del escritor devolver a las palabras de la tribu un sentido mas puro, Carlos Fuentes se propone utilizar palabras manchadas de fango, de tierra, de vida: palabras manchegas. "Territorio de La Mancha" ha llamado el a nuestra lengua, intensamente mestiza en si misma y abierta por ello a la comunicacion y a la integracion. Por universalmente manchega y cervantina, es la nuestra una lengua propicia no solo para reflejar la realidad sino para transformarla. Al igual que en los otros volumenes precedentes de esta coleccion, en lapreparacion de esta edicion, que por encargo de la Academia Mexicana ha cuidado con esmero don Gonzalo Celorio, miembro de ella, han colaborado academicos de diversos paises. Abre los estudios el propio Gonzalo Celorio, que hace la semblanza de Carlos Fuentes como maestro de varias generaciones; sigue otro de Jose Emilio Pacheco (Mexico) referido a la recepcion de la novela en su momento y a la importancia que en ella cobra la ciudad de Mexico, mientras Vicente Quirarte (Mexico) amplia la perspectiva al ambito de la narrativa mexicana del siglo XX.
