Get Catedral (Compactos Anagrama) (Spanish Edition) PDF

By Raymond Carver,Benito Gómez Ibáñez

Se ha afirmado que el relato es los angeles forma narrativa por excelencia en los angeles literatura norteamericana genuine y que Raymond Carver es el maestro indiscutible de este registro. En cada relato de Catedral se revela los angeles presencia latente o l. a. intrusión de "terrores extraordinarios en una existencia ordinaria" (Cathleen Medwick). El propio Carver ha escrito: "Pienso que es bueno que en un relato haya un leve aire de amenaza... Debe haber tensión, una sensación de que algo es inminente." Sus personajes son gente de lo más comun: trabajadores manuales, empleaduchos, parados, parejas a l. a. deriva..., desamparados, golpeados por l. a. vida, muchos de ellos bebedores, acceden, a pesar suyo, a una suerte de dimensión heroica, tercos testimonios de una realidad implacable. Su estilo es escueto, lacónico, opera por sustracción; se ha dicho que Carver inaugura una nueva visión, un nuevo método, una nueva tonalidad. "Una de las voces más originales que han aparecido en los angeles narrativa norteamericana desde hace años" (Bill Buford, instances Literary Supplement).
