Item description for Musica sentimental (Spanish Edition) by Eugenio Cambaceres...

"Musica Sentimental" carries as subtitle "Silbidos de un vago", the same as Cambaceres' first novel "Potpourri", that aroused ill feelings in a great part of the Argentine literary circle, most probably sullen and envious due to its sales success. Carrying the stigma of pornographer the readers' support to Cambaceres was expected to be short lived. Nothing farthest appart from what finally happened. The appearance of this second novel renewed the indignation as it was the general consensus that it showed the same scandalous traits as the first one. As the book ran among readers from hand to hand the author was accused of being the "courtisan of lower passions". However Cambaceres shows a self imposing personality, owner of a particular style, artisan of a novel vocabulary that in no way can be considered vulgar, though it faithfully reproduces that particular speak of well-to-do "porteos" at the turn of the XIX Century, a mixture of "gaucho", highly educated Spanish, French, and argot of both languages. The strongest asset of Cambaceres is the strength of his thought cast in precise words. His style is sharp, cutting and dry, and turns out to be perfect and captivating as it paints realistic pictures such as the licentious life of Pablo, without a moral standing and ended in a most tragic and revolting way. The scenes are drawn with perfection of details, becoming realistic paintings that define and highlight vigorously the wandering life of the rich Latin American youngsters of the time, for whom the initiatic trip to the "Old Continent" spanned from the search of what was considered "haute culture" down to the social rubbing, without neglecting the "worldly man experience" to be obtained in brothels and garonnieres. Through Cambaceres pen appears not only the adolescent gluttony of Latin Americans but also the underlying rot ingrained within the French society, admired for its culture but whose morals are critisized unmercifully in these, considered among the richest pages of the author's production.

Reviews - What do customers think about Musica sentimental (Spanish Edition)?

Música Sentimental: La diáspora naturalista de fin de siecle  Jan 12, 2009
Música Sentimental es una excelente novela que define el comienzo del naturalismo en Latinoamérica. Eugenio Cambaceres escribe una novela en donde forma una narrativa topográfica, detallada y avanzada para la década del 80. Conocido como el "primer novelista de Argentina" y criticado por sus críticos por sus relatos "pornográficos", Cambaceres embarca en el comienzo de lo que sería la nueva novela Naturalista destruyendo la narrativa "fantasiosa" y mostrando la crudeza y la totalidad de la realidad de la vida. Si el lector es una persona apasionada por la ficción literaria y la experimentación en uso de diferentes géneros literarios; Música Sentimental es el libro perfecto para leer! En el contenido de este libro no solo encontrarán el relato de un narrador desconocido (en este caso "el vago", siendo que Cambaceres la nombra con el subtítulo de "silbidos de un vago" como su primera novela Pot-pourri) sino que se encontrarán centrados en una charla entre narrador-lector en la que se presentará la tragedía humana, la evolución darwaniana, la acción en los duelos a muerte y por supuesto : las calamidades de las enfermedades mortales de dichos tiempos. Eugenio Cambaceres hace un excelente trabajo en transportar la cultura argentina a París, en donde toma lugar la historia, y funde los coloquialismos argentinos y franceses en el diálogo de los personajes.El lujo de la burguesía francesa no solo se nota en la narración sino en las características de los personajes. La prostituta llamada "memondaine" en francia (caracterizada como "compañera de la alta clase") desetabiliza esta profesión degradante y forma un negocio prestigiado.Claro que este precioscismo de "lo lujoso" no deja de exponer el pesimismo y revela el esceptisismo expresado por la cualidades de vida en los personajes. Los clubs y casinos de los burgueses en Mónaco enmarcan un semblante de "prestigio" y ascenso social del que no individualizan ningúna relación con la clase media. Música Sentimental es una novela lujosa, aristocratica y impactante en técnicas literarias totalmente avanzadas para la época en que fue escrita. Especialmente la recomiendo para esos lectores que tienen un alto conocimiento en la escritura naturalista de fin de siécle.
