Item description for Las Piadosas (Spanish Edition) by Federico Andahazi...

Federico Andahazi author of the critically acclaimed novel El Anatomista, weaves a Faustian tale of envy, lust and self destruction, around the historically familiar backdrop of Lord Byron and his libertine colleagues in 1816 Geneva.

This atmospheric and erotic story follows the pursuits of Byron's personal secretary John Willian Polidri, whose all consuming envy of his employer and his literary friends leads him to strike a deal with a monster in the guise of a woman who promises him literary fame in return for his sperm. The reader follows Polidri's descent into madness as he discovers the true nature of the pact he has made and its consequences.

Federico Andahazi has written a provocative gothic tale reminiscent of the literary classics Jane Eyre and Goethe's Faust.

Reviews - What do customers think about Las Piadosas (Spanish Edition)?

Relato sobrio y una apuesta a la duda.  Jun 24, 2000
Las Piadosas es una novela apasionante, que se desarrolla durante el año 1916 en una villa de Ginebra. Andahazi logra una brillante recreación de algunos momentos en la vida de un conocido grupo de la elite intelectual europea, su estilo de vida, sus pasiones y envidias, en una atmósfera a al vez opresiva y rodeada de erotismo. Es un logro del autor el tratamiento psicológico que le da a conocidos personajes como Lord Byron, Mary y Percy Shelley y, especialmente, el de otros no tan conocidos como el doctor Polidori, secretario de Byron. El doctor Polidori, con su carga de envidia, su secreto y sus maquinaciones resulta fundamental en la inesperada resolución del relato. Esta es una novela es muy recomendable para todos aquellos que disfrutamos de un relato sobrio, que pone en duda toda certeza establecida y nos permite el replanteo de ciertas premisas socialmente aceptadas. Realmente este es un libro para leer y releer.
