Reviews - What do customers think about Los santos inocentes (Leer en Espanol) (Leer En Espanol)?

grotesque  Feb 7, 2004
A short and passionate novel about an implausibly feudal countryside in contemporary Spain. It's told in run-on, inarticulate sentences, as if in the voices of its characters, the abused lackeys of a hideous Franquista latifundia. If the masters are portrayed as morally grotesque, so in their own way are the 'santos' (the oppressed countryfolk), most of them physically or mentally deformed, filthy, stupefied, 'Tierra Sin Pan'-like. They are at least in touch with the natural world -- but so is the worst of the masters, who is obsessed with hunting. (This "señorito" seems to be in part the author, who was a hunting fanatic too.) Did such people really inhabit Spain in 1981?
A chronicle of change: from feudal to modern Spain  Oct 14, 2000
An aspect that is often neglected in Los santos inocentes is that the hacienda where it takes place is depicted as a remnant of feudal Spain. The location (Extremadura, land of the Reconquista), the "border" where Paco el Bajo and his family are posted, and, most of all, the relations between nobles and plebeians, clearly indicate a societal order in which power relations still follow a Medieval pattern. However, this hierarchical model is not functional anymore, not only because the servants do not see themselves as such, but also because the masters do not carry on their duties: the marchioness lives in Madrid, the young master does not respect the sexual honour of his servants, and the master of Azarias fires him because he is old, something unthinkable in the feudal system where nobody can be fired. The patriarchal (matriarchal in this case) order is falling apart.
Delibes tiene esa manera de contar las cosas tan especial. El dice, con su natural humildad, que aprendio a escribir con un una guia de derecho mercantil, pero yo creo que con el don se nace, y Delibes solo hay uno. Con su llanura, sobriedad y sinceridad conquista al lector. Este es un libro intimo, sencillo, bien escrito, lleno de amor y de crueldad, como la vida. Es uno de los libros mas autenticos que he leido. Lo recomiendo a todo el mundo con "El Camino",del mismo autor.
