Item description for El arpa y la sombra (Spanish Edition) by Alejo Carpentier & Alejo Carpentier...

El novelista cubano vuelve a incursionar en la historia, ahora para recrear todo ese proceso increible que fue el intento de canonizar al Almirante de la Mar Oceana, Cristobal Colon y, a traves de un monologo alucinante, vital, las confesiones del marino genoves en el lecho de muerte. Las elucubraciones de papas y abogados del diablo prestan el contrapunto final que habra de marcar para siempre la vida en el mas alla del descubridor de America.

Reviews - What do customers think about El arpa y la sombra (Spanish Edition)?

repensando a colon  Sep 19, 2000
Esta obra es un análisis de la vida de Cristóbal Colon, vista desde un punto de vista irónico y divertido a la vez. El autor hace uso del lenguaje barroco y la novela, aunque es corta, parece cargada. La vida de colon es vista desde la perspectiva presente, por un papa que favorece la santificación del marinero para crear una unión entre las iglesias Europeas y Americanas. El segundo capitulo muestra a un hombre movido por la ambición de un oro que parece eludirle en cada viaje y quien después de fallidos intentos ve en el negocio de esclavos el beneficio que tanto le elude. Hacia el final de su vida tenemos un hombre que no desconoce el valor de su gloria, pero se ve plagado, porque quizás no le reconocerán su gloria. Ya el capitulo final, muestra la derrota del personaje al serle negada la canonización. Es un excelente libro, escrito un año antes de la muerte de Alejo Carpentier y que deja ver claramente su estilo barroco y su uso de la lengua española.
