Item description for Cuentos Completos, Vol. 2 (Spanish Edition) by Julio Cortazar...

In Cortazar s world, games recover their lost potential as a serious activity for adults. Although it is true that his characters enjoy playing, the dangerous quality of many of their games will leave them with a dreadful truth, insanity or death, not to mention a fleeting sense of oblivion of their circumstances. No other writer has transformed games into such a malleable and useful instrument of artistic exploration and creation. Cortzar s work opened the doors to previously unexplored territories.

Spanish Description:

En el mundo de Cortazar el juego recobra esa virtualidad perdida, de actividad seria y de adultos. Es verdad que sus personajes se divierten jugando, pero muchas veces se trata de diversiones peligrosas, que les dejaran, ademas de un pasajero olvido de sus circunstancias, algun conocimiento atroz, o la enajenacion o la muerte.
En otros casos, el juego cortazariano es un refugio para la sensibilidad y la imaginacion. En sus libros juega el autor, juega el narrador, juegan los personajes y juega el lector, obligado a ello por las endiabladas trampas que lo acechan a la vuelta de la pagina menos pensada.
Ningun otro escritor dio al juego la dignidad literaria que Cortazar, ni hizo del juego un instrumento de creacion y exploracion artistica tan ductil y provechoso. La obra de Cortazar abrio puertas ineditas.
