Item description for La Cita y Otros Cuentos de Mujeres Infieles (Spanish Edition) by Rosa Montero...

"Womens infidelity is a complex and deep subject, however throughout history men have given it a very loose meaning. Beyond those macho prejudices, many other things come to play. Who has not been unfaithful at one time, at least mentally? The ambition to have what we do not have and to be what we are not is a big part of human beings, and so is infidelity." Rosa Montero. Texts by Bioy Casares, Marcelo Birmajer, Giovanni Boccacci, Cortzar, Antn Chjov, Fitzgerald, Mastretta, Guy de Maupassant, Onetti, and more.

Description in Spanish: Prlogo de Rosa Montero; textos de Adolfo Bioy Casares, Marcelo Birmajer, Giovanni Boccacci, Abelardo Castillo, Julio Cortzar, Geoffrey Chaucer, Antn Chjov, Francis Scott Fitzgerald, Fumiko Hayashi, Toms Kbor, ngeles Mastretta, Guy de Maupassant, Juan Carlos Onetti, Petronio, Arthur Schnitzler, La castellana de Vergy, Las mil y una noches.

"La infidelidad de la mujer es un tema complejo y profundo al que la voz del varn ha dotado, a lo largo de la historia, de unos significados muy precisos. Pero, ms all de los prejuicios machistas, en la infidelidad, sea de mujeres o de hombres, se juegan muchas otras cosas; sobre todo, me parece, el deseo o el sueo de ser otro. Quin no ha sido infiel alguna vez en su vida, por lo menos mentalmente, imaginariamente. Quin no se ha proyectado en el amor de otro, y, por consiguiente, en el diseo deslumbrante de una vida nueva. La ambicin de tener lo que no tenemos y ser lo que no somos forma parte sustancial del ser humano; y la infidelidad, por lo tanto, tambin. Aunque uno nunca se atreva a llevarla a la prctica. De todo ese mundo turbio y sustancial compuesto de miedos y deseos, de necesidades y venganzas, de identidades que se inventan a s mismas y mitos ancestrales, tratan los hermosos relatos que componen este libro. Un tema fascinante e inacabable". Rosa Montero
