9788466320146: La guerra del fin del mundo (Narrativa (Punto de Lectura)) (Spanish Edition)

Deep within the remote backlands of 19th century Brazil sits Canudos, a libertarian's paradise. Home of prostitutes, bandits, and beggars, Canudos embodies the revolutionary spirit in its purest and most apocalyptic form. In one of his most brilliant and tragic novels, Mario Vargas Llosa creates an unforgettable tale of passion, idealism, adventure, and man's struggle to be free. It is an exhaustively documented account of a historical event and a fundamental book in 20th century literature. Description in Spanish: ''A finales del siglo XX, en las tierras pauperrimas del noreste de Brasil, el chispazo de las arengas del Consejero, personaje mesianico y enigmatico, prendera la insurreccion de los desheredados. En circunstancias extremas como aquellas, la consecucion de la dignidad vital solo podra venir de la exaltacion religiosa - el convencimiento fanatico de la eleccion divina de los marginados del mundo- y del quebranto radical de las reglas que rigen el mundo de los poderosos. Asi, grupos de miserables acudiran a la llamada de la revolucion de Canudos, la cuidad donde se asentara esta comunidad de personajes que dificilmente desapareceran de la imaginacion del lector: el Beatito, el Leon de Natuba, Maria Quadrado. Frente a todos ellos, una trama político- militar se articula para detener con toda su fuerza el movimiento que amenaza con expandirse."
