Reviews - What do customers think about Cuentos de amor de locura y de muerte (Spanish Edition)?

Do not buy this edition!   May 23, 2007
I purchased this edition of the book as part of a reading list for my doctoral exams. The text is there, but the punctuation in the book is HORRIBLE! That is, there are no accents or tildes - which is unacceptable for Spanish (especially since the use or lack of these can change the meaning of a word)! In addition, by the end of the first page, I noticed errors in verb conjugations in the Spanish - if you are only seeking to read the stories and are not bothered by the distraction of grammatical errors and trying to figure out what tense the verb SHOULD be, then this is for you. However, if you are relatively proficient in Spanish, the orthographic errors are completely maddening and impossible to ignore. Clearly, someone was hired to type up the text - and from appearances, does not know Spanish - or how to use a standard keyboard to create international characters. Additionally, I am so put off that anyone would have such a lack of consideration and actually publish this and put it out there for the general public! It is a disgrace to Horacio Quiroga and to academics alike who value language and accuracy. Choose another edition! I gave this book one star for having text.... not worth the trouble.
La Selva Mágica  May 17, 2007
Para aquellos que tuvimos la oportunidad de crecer en la selva y conocer sus misterios, personajes y fantasmas, Quiroga cobra un significado muy especial, pues quien conoce la soledad y el mundo que rodea ese entorno misterioso, donde la vida es frágil y la exposición al peligro constante, se empapa de lo posible a suceder.
El espectador citadino puede que vea con horror el mundo cruel de lo salvaje y sin embargo la ciudad no deja de ser más o menos igual, donde el grito se ahoga en la indiferencia del ciudadano.
Esta obra es una belleza, mueve los sentido y dispara la imaginación. Bravo por Quiroga

The latin american mirror image of Poe !  Nov 19, 2004
The fertile mind of Horacio Quiroga , his enormous talen and best gifted pen make of him a must reference in the literature world .
In the fantastic genre you just have to look back the names of Guy of Maupassant , Robert Stevenson , Julio Verne , Edgar Allan Poe , Franz Kafka , Jorge Luis Borges and Horacio Quiroga .
The basic triumph of Quiroga trurns around the form he seduces the reader . Without any kind of restrictions he goes from the eye to the soul and mind so fast and suggestively that you hardly will be able to believe it .
His narrative technique is very close to the cinematographic method .
Quiroga and Antoine Artaud seem to be the prodigal sons of the cinema .
Back to the book , Quiroga goes to the american jungle and builds a superb puzzle where the outer atmosphere blends with syncronized perfection to the human soul , its little miseries , normal decadence and its unbeatable fellow trip : the greed .
Get close to Quiroga world and you will get surprised .

sus cuentos son dificiles de entender.No fue de mi agrado.
Cuentos de amor, locura, y muerte  Dec 4, 2002
Estas colleciones del autor Quiroga son algunas de sus mejores obras. Siempre me han gustado sus cuentos, su manera de escribir, y sus temas como la muerte, el amor (imposible), y la locura. Esta colleción discute un poco de cada tema. También discute la vida difícil del hombre en la selva, o sea, el hombre contra la naturaleza. Creo que los temas mencionados vienen de su propia vida cuando Quiroga era joven; El fue testigo de los dificultades de la vida en el bosque que confrontan al hombre. Sin duda, estos cuentos son muy interesantes y fenómenos; le muestran al lector "la vida cruel" en que vivía el autor Quiroga.
