Fútbol: juego, pasión, arte  Jun 7, 2006
Este libro de Eduardo Galeano quiere mostrar mucho sobre la experiencia del fútbol, un fenómeno internacional de masas que es fabuloso negocio y demandante deporte, pero sobre todo, juego que puede ser poético. Antiguamente, 'poiesis' (verbo griego) tenia algún poder sobre el oído y consecuentemente el sentir y pensar de las gentes, cuando la letra escrita era escasa. 'Poiesis' era terapéutica para la vida. Hoy día no todos apreciamos la poesía, y desde luego no tiene para nosotros modernos el sentido antiguo de 'poiesis' como "creación"; para nosotros la poesía es palabrería más o menos bonita, escrita, apenas experimentada y pobremente declamada. Y algo de eso pasa con el fútbol. Cuando Galeano escribe en la Introducción, "una jugada bonita por amor de Dios," encapsula todo cuanto intenta expresar de la pasión futbolística en este libro, y nos invita a compartir ese anhelo leyendo las historias y leyendas que plasma, en busca de ese arte juguetón, pasional y artístico.
love for soccer - El amor al futbol (ambos idiomas)  Jul 3, 2002
This book tell us about the real love for soccer, it is incredible how Galeano document history of soccer from a new way to feel it. This is not a simple history of soccer, this is the history of why soccer is the most played sport. Galeano defenitly loves soccer as a graceful and inspiring sprot played by real artists, not as like the most of us, his is fan of soccer beyond his favorite team. Soccer is not only about scoring a goal and wining, it is realy important how you play it.
Full of descriptions of moments in soccer history that show us this.

Galeano no es hincha de su equipo, es fan e hincha del futbol por sobretodas las cosas. Por eso el futbol debe ser hermoso y con pasión. Este libro es una cronografía de los momentos que han hecho historia en el fútbol. Es una recopilación de los momentos que nos enseñan porque el futbol es el deporte mundial. Para Galeano el futbol es más que marcar goles y ganar, es una verdadera fiesta llena de pasión. Este compendio de historias nos transmiten los momentos y personas que nos enseñan esto. Es una exelente manera de re-enamorarse del buen fútbol.
