Item description for Aves sin nido (Spanish Edition) by Clorinda Matto de Turner...

Clorinda Matto de Turner's classic novel in a new, annotated edition. First published in 1889, Aves sin nido drew fiery protests for its unsparing expose of small town officials, judicial authorities, and priests who oppressed the native peoples of Peru. Matto de Turner was excommunicated by the Catholic Church, burned in effigy, and forced to emigrate to Argentina. In 1904, the novel was published in an English translation as with a modified ending. Successive English editions restored the original ending and translator's omissions. This edition follows the original version in Spanish, but comprises no less than 332 notes, adding more than 270 to the author's own 58 lexicographic annotations on Quecha and Spanish unusual terms, so necessary to grasp the real power of her prose. This annotated edition constitutes an important reading for all students of the indigenous cultures of South America.

Reviews - What do customers think about Aves sin nido (Spanish Edition)?

Lectura para conocer el pasado del Peru  Oct 27, 2004
Me dejó impresionado los detalles relatados del dia a dia de los últimos años de siglo XIX, tiempo de vivencia de la autora. Encontré fantastico los detalles de un viaje de ferrocarril en un paisaje andino en 1870.
first realistic Indians in a novel  Jul 31, 2001
Aves sin nido is not a perfect book, its importance in the Latin American literature lies in the fact that it was the first novel to attempt to give a realistic portrait of the Indians and to call attention to their miserable situation. This soon created a fashion in the beginning of the twentieth century when the novels were usually about the oppression the Indians live under or the rich culture of these oppressed Indians that infiltrates in the Latin American culture. The novel by Clarinda Matto de Turner offers an utterly pleasurable story about a nice young white couple who helps a nice young Indian couple, but many essays were written about the imperfections in the characterisation, the errors in the style and the failure of the author to keep the tension throughout the story. Still, it is an easy read, with an easily decipherable message. Of course, it often falls in the trap of exoticism, frequently alluding to the richness of the Indian culture, many of them now part of our minimal notion about Andean Indians (the llamas, the alpaca, etc.) It also falls in the trap of constantly trying to show us that Indians are also nice people, thus drawing a rather one-dimensional portrait of the characters. But considering that she was a pioneer in this matter this propagandistic details can be forgiven. And considering realism, in some ways the novel is far more realistic and less corny than say Uncle Tom's Cabin.
