Dos historias hay en este libro. Una de ellas, apenas esbozada, es la de un amor secreto que culmina en la muerte elegida por un hombre que quiso ponerse a salvo de las tormentas de la memoria. La otra historia es la de un amor que hace de esos tormentos su alimento. Un amor acechado por los enemigos: el deterioro fisico, la vejez, la muerte. Una muchacha de dieciocho anos rechaza al hombre de quien ha estado enamorada y con quien le han impedido unirse.Un deseo ahincado en si mismo, que avanza hacia su origen en un movimiento que no cesa.

Latin American Studies - Ana Maria Cobos; Ana Lya Sater
Call Number: Z1601 .C536 2002
ISBN: 0786412569
Publication Date: 2002-06-11
The Latin American studies collections at many community, junior and four year colleges, and large public libraries often contain materials that are too specialized, uneven, outdated, incomplete, or written in Spanish or Portuguese--thus rendering them essentially useless to English-reading patrons. Better materials are out there, but librarians simply have not had, until now, a good resource guide to help in locating them.This work, designed as an acquisitions tool for colleges and libraries, is an annotated bibliography of approximately 1,400 recommended books published from 1986 through 2000 in the field of Latin American studies. It is divided into chapters that deal with reference works, descriptive accounts and travel guides, the humanities, language and literature, the social sciences, and science and technology. For the purposes of this book, Latin America is defined as all geographic locations south of the Rio Grande. While these are chiefly Spanish and Portuguese speaking regions, works about French, English, and Dutch speaking areas are also included. The literary works of authors living abroad are included if they are considered quintessentially Latin American. Periodicals, children's literature, audio-visual resources, and works about the Hispanic and Latino experience in the United States are not included.

The Decline and Fall of the Lettered City - Jean Franco; Jean FRANCO
ISBN: 9780674037175
Publication Date: 2009-06-01
The cultural Cold War in Latin America was waged as a war of values--artistic freedom versus communitarianism, Western values versus national cultures, the autonomy of art versus a commitment to liberation struggles--and at a time when the prestige of literature had never been higher. The projects of the historic avant-garde were revitalized by an anti-capitalist ethos and envisaged as the opposite of the republican state. The Decline and Fall of the Lettered City charts the conflicting universals of this period, the clash between avant-garde and political vanguard.
