Reviews - What do customers think about Maria (Spanish)?

Transcends all time periods  Dec 21, 2006
A true love story that grips the heart. Then again, I'm biased since Senor Jorge Isaacs was my Great Great Grand-uncle :)
I highly recommend the book, audio, or movie version.
 
lo decimonónico en su hermosura selvática  Jul 25, 2002
Jorge Isaacs (Cauca, 1837-1895) es el autor de la excepcional María (1867). María dista de ser una novela interpretada de un modo unívoco y siempre aprobatorio. La crítica le mezquina de ordinario lo que el público lector de lengua castellana le ha brindado, casi desde la primera hora, hasta convertirla en una de las obras más leídas y con mayor número de ediciones en la literatura de nuestra lengua.

Es, de las novelas decimonónicas, la historia de amor funesto más sugestiva, sentida y llena de signficado. La novela narra los amores de dos jóvenes adolescentes que dan contenida vida a su primer amor . . . . El encantamiento sensual o la vehemencia de la pasión juvenil es sublimada en objetos o manifestaciones diversas del amor por el otro --flores, guedejas, pañuelos, anillos--; objetos que sellan una promesa, pagan una culpa o compensan un agravio. Una sensualidad delicada y real se manifiesta en roce de casualidad, presiones tiernas, besos, visión sorpresiva de la desnudez de hombros, manos o pies, que son objeto de maravilla constante.

 
Maria  Oct 26, 2000
This is a beautiful 19th century novel, a classic of Latin American literature. It's about the story of a young Jewish Colombian woman (Jorge Isaacs was Jewish) and the love of her life, a young man she grows up with. It's set in the Andean region of Colombia with beautifully depicted imagery of the natural settings, and the customs of the times. It is both tragic and inspiring, and there is a good reason why it's a classic. It's characters, the scenery, and the haunting ending are very memorable.
 
Excellent  Feb 21, 2000
The book is a great example of a expresident setting the tone for his country. A nice example of the romanticism period
