Editorial Reviews

Review

Si en ""Leyendas de Guatemala"", ya publicado en Letras Hispanicas, se produjo la toma de conciencia del autor de la identidad nacional de su pais, en ""El Senor Presidente"" se produce una denuncia de la dictadura de Hispanoamerica, a traves del caso especial guatemalteco. La importancia de esta novela es enorme como modelo directo o indirecto para los autores de narraciones que tratan tambien el tema de la dictadura: Carpentier, Garcia Marquez o Roa Bastos. Encarna ademas el patron de la ""nueva novela"" y el ""realismo magico"". --Los editores

Format: Paperback
este libro es una obra maestra de la literatura, es lirico, por la forma de expresion de sus personajes, es coloquial en sus expresiones, es de alcance enorme en su tematica. un dictador que tiene control absoluto sobre todo y todos y utiliza el mejor servicio de inteligencia del mundo:el miedo de las personas que las hace delatar hasta lo mas minimo de sus vecinos, amigos o familiares.. es tambien una historia de amor, de un amor especial, lirico onirico frustrante, que termina mal. es tambien la historia de un general cobarde que huye de la muerte dejando a su hija, solo para darse cuenta de que ha estado muerto todos estos anos al estar al servicio de quienes explotan al pueblo. es la historia de una madre que ve morir a su hijo en sus brazos y no puede hacer nada, solamente perder la razon, pues cuando la cordura es tan irreal solo la sinrazon nos queda como alternativa viable para seguir vivos. esta novela tambien esta llena de experimentacion con el lenguaje a un nivel y con una altura excepcional, se nota que el escritor trabajo arduamente en su obra, mas de 10 anos para terminarla y utilizo elementos de faulkner y de joyce, bastante bien usados y pertinentes en esta novela. creo que el abrio la puerta de las letras latinoamericanas para la experimentacion y el avance.
no me basto con decir que este libro es excelente tuve que explicar porque es excelente para que no pase desapercibido y se pierda como joya en la tormenta....

Format: Paperback
Libro que lanzó a la fama Miguel Angel Asturias ganando el premio nobel de literatura en 1967. Señor Presidente retrata la epoca del dictador guatemalteco Estrada Cabrera,y denúncia las atrocidades cometidas por los que estaban en el poder.Realmente muy impresionante.

Format: Paperback
Me es un honor decir que el maestro Miguel Ángel Asturias era guatemalteco (compatriota). La lectura de este libro es impactante, y poc varias razones:

1.) Descripciones vívidas y crudas, rellenas de esperpento y de los fantasmagórico.
2.) Prosa y un uso prolífico de figuras literarias.
3.) Trama sociopolítica veraz, algo que le agrega muchísimo a la lectura y procova que profundice.
4.) Complot genial con un desenlace poco común y bien ejecutado.
5.) Personajes diversos y con nombres peculiares y sobresalientes.

Un libro recomendadísimo y un pilar de la literatura.
