Qualcosa cambia con l. a. comparsa di Sofia, appena arrivata a Roma dalla provincia toscana in line with studiare Arte senza troppa convinzione.

Download Cuentos completos by Abelardo Castillo PDF

By Abelardo Castillo

Hace años vengo sintiendo que mis cuentos pertenecen a un solo libro, Los mundos reales, único libro de cuentos que comencé a inventar antes de los dieciocho años, que crece y se modifica conmigo, y en el que encarnizadamente trabajaré toda mi vida.” Un canon cuentístico de l. a. narrativa argentina no podría soslayar —acaso junto a Borges y a Cortázar— los angeles obra de Abelardo Castillo. Situados como al ultimate de un meticuloso proceso de influencias (Poe, Sartre, Arlt, Borges, Thomas Mann), sus cuentos —de impecable escritura— auscultan lo cotidiano hasta despojarlo de toda familiaridad. No poco se ha dicho de estos mundos reales y siempre fracasaron los intentos de clasificarlos. Lo cierto es que Castillo recurre a una tradición sólo para reinventarla, para deshilvanar, en esquirlas de misteriosa lucidez, los angeles trama de lo actual.
