Review

El interes de Miguel angel Asturias encuentra su transposicion literaria en LEYENDAS de GUATEMALA cronica de prodigios fantasticos en la que las leyendas miticas del pueblo maya-quiche se funden con las tradiciones del pasado colonial guatemalteco y las ciudades indigenas de Tikal y Copan se aunan con Santiago y Antigua, fundadas por los espanoles. La batalla entre los espiritus de la tierra y los espiritus divinos es narrada por la prosa evocadora y exuberante del Premio Nobel de Literatura de 1967, colmada de imagenes deslumbrantes. Otras obras de Miguel angel Asturias en esta coleccion: ""El Senor Presidente --Los editores

Miguel Angel Asturias, the Guatemalan Nobel Laureate, always wrote with poetry in his mind -- I believe so. One example is his description of slowness, in one pharagraph: The cart arrives in town turning a while today and another tomorrow.
I must warn that this book is full of regionalisms and, even if there is a glossary in the end, the Kindle version is so ladden with typos that it is difficult to know if a specific word is a creation of the author's mind or the by-product of a mechanical finger glitch.

Me parece que Miguel Angel Asturias, guatemalteco ganador del Premio Nobel de Literatura, siempre escribió con la poesía en su mente. Un ejemplo se encuentra en la frase: La carreta llega al lpueblo rodando un paso hoy y otro mañana. Què manera màs linda de expresar la lentitud del tiempo.
Empero, la edición en la versión Kindle está tan llena de errores tipográficos que es difícil saber si una palabra es producto de la mente del autor o de un desperfecto mecànico digital -- literalmente.
Los regionalismos literarios guatemaltecos son joyas.

Este libro es llenado de oscuridad y maldad. Lo puedes cambiarte a una persona mala, que prefiere los espiritus en lugar de la salvacion de nuestro Creador verdadero, Iajueh Iajuwshua.
