Reviews - What do customers think about San Manuel Bueno, Martir?

Profunda, conmovedora  Apr 26, 2008
Esta novela corta relata la historia de un cura que, por más que haga el esfuerzo, no logra creer en Dios. Es una novela muy bellamente escrita que te hace considerar una situación muy inusual, de la cual surgen cuestiones profundas de la fe. La leí en un curso de literatura hispana y acabó siendo la mejor cosa de las que leímos todo ese año. ¡Léanlo! Es una verdadera joya de la literatura hispana.
Nietzschean charity?  Aug 16, 2004
This brief novel ("nivola") absolutely blew me away when i read it. Knowing the Kierkegaardian and Nietzschean existential atmosphere De Unamuno was working in, I wasn't quite sure how the catholic angle would fit in, but De Unamuno contines to impress me with everything I read by him. "San Manuel Bueno, Martir" is the best thing I have read from him (also recommended, obviously, "Mist").
Basically what we've got here is a kind of foundationless charity. Instead of turning with Nietzsche violence and the YES (after the collapse of what was), De Unamuno turns here to charity and tradition. Very interesting contrast. Good read. Thought provoking.
Querer y no poder  May 8, 2001
Leí hace algún tiempo que Unamuno deseaba creer en Dios, pero desafortunadamente no podía. La fe es algo que o se tiene o no se tiene. No se puede adquirir. Don Manuel, párroco devotísimo y más bueno que el pan, por mucho que quisiera no acierta a tragarse la liturgia y todo lo que ello conlleva, y sin embargo predica la Palabra de Dios como si tal cosa.

Una buena novela, que se debe leer para comprender a Unamuno.

After the loss of blind faith: firs step  Dec 31, 2000
This is one of the most thought-provoking novels I've ever read. The author presents us with a character who one day discovers he can't believe in god any longer, and thus finds almost everything in his life has lost meaning... His desperation is deepened because he is priest to his village, and is convinced that the loss of religious faith can only bring bad things to people's lives. Thus, he conceals his anguish... To me, the story talks about our constant search for meaning as human beings, about how strongly we can care for each other, about our struggle against failure... And although Unamuno probably didn't intend it that way, I also believe it's a dramatization of how we are capable of identifying with a certain idea or philosophy to such extent that we become unable to disentangle ourselves and reality from it. This conclusion is naturally drawn when you think about other reactions Miguel might have had to his discovery. A book of questions, with plenty of room for readers to search for their own answers.
una novela corta pero profunda  Dec 3, 1999
La vida del personaje principal en esta novela bellisima es una tragedia. San Manuel es un hombre religiouso que no cree en Dios. Sin embargo, el sabe que la gente necesita la fe para aguantar el dolor de sus existencias. El quiere ayudarles a todos, pero para ayudar el tiene que mentir.

Su problema --el problema de la fe y de la razon-- es un cuestion tragica que todos seres humanos deben preguntar. Unamuno nos pregunta estas preguntas tan dificiles como importantes en esta novela miravillosa.
