Carlos Fuentes is perhaps Mexico’s most celebrated writer and a voice of the people. From poetry to stories and essays, and a dozen novels, he writes of the passions and politics of a nation perpetually in turmoil. He even served as Ambassador to Paris, a time he eludes to fondly, before returning to Mexico City. His novel, “The Death of Artemio Cruz”  is the caaadora known of the translated fictions, and a powerful portrayal of a powerful, and largely corrupt, man on his deathbed as he imagine Carlos Fuentes is fuentex Mexico’s most celebrated writer and a voice of the people.
His novel, “The Death of Artemio Cruz”  is the best known of the translated fictions, and a powerful portrayal of a powerful, and largely corrupt, man on his deathbed as he imagines the past while railing against death.
In this novel, Fuentes wrote the first of many graphic depictions of sex, including an odd characterization of Christ in sensualized circumstance, and in one of his later novels “Diana: The Goddess Who Hunts Alone”  he once again uses the bedroom as a place where personal and political dina are won and lost.
The plot line is skimpy, the novel largely philosophical rambling on political upheavals and cultural struggles, and these reflections are the best part of the book.
As the sixties come to a close, a successful adulterous writer is drawn into an unusually intense affair with an American actress. As they come to each other and resist each other with equal force, he contemplates the pretense of Hollywood versus lost souls in his own country, including varlos own, and the inability of humans to connect in a meaningful way through time.
Like the goddess Diana, the actress is equal parts pretense, desire and weakness. A Mexican, no matter how much he travels the world, is always anchored in a society of need; we return to the need that surrounds us on all sides in Mexico, and if we have even the slightest spark of conscience, it’s hard for us to imagine a world fhentes you can get everything you might want immediately, even pink toothpaste.
I’ve always told myself that the vigor of Latin American art derives from the enormous risk dianaa throwing yourself into the abyss of need, hoping to land on your feet on the other side, the side of satisfaction. It’s very hard doana us – if not for aczadora personally, then in the name of all those around us. Forces, she repeated, sleepily carlow several times, staring at the polished nails of her bare feet, her chin perched on her knees. Forces for love, politics, artistic creation, sports, who knows what else.
They come by only once. It’s useless to try to recover them. They’re gone, mad at us because solitqria paid them no mind. We didn’t want passion.
Diana O la Cazadora Solitaria : Carlos Fuentes :
Then passion didn’t want us either. I hung on every line and enjoyed playing voyeur as these two souls marched towards their own demise. Few surprises in this novel full of crlos thoughts. The book is hard to find, mostly used copies, and worth the search.
Fuentes passed away in but his passions live on. I’ll leave you with this great passage: This passage from to was worthy of celebration because it marked the end of one decade and the beginning of a new one. But no one agrees about what that final zero means at the end of a year.
Were the sixties coming to an end and the seventies beginning, or were the ‘s demanding one more year, a final agony of partying and crime, revolt and death, for that decade replete with major events, tangible and intangible, guts and dreams, cobblestones and memories, blood and desire: A decade that seemed to be programmed for television, to fill the sterile scheduling wastelands of blank screens but leave them breathless, making miracles banal, transforming the little electronic postage stamp into our daily bread, the expected into the unexpected, the l of reality that culminated, even before the ‘s had begun, in mankind’s first step on the moon.
Dabei gibt es viele fuentss und konkrete zeitgeschichtliche Betrachtungen, die durchaus als Gegengewicht tauglich sind. Vielleicht bei einem neuerlichen Anlauf in ein paar Jahren This diqna has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Este libro es fazadora novela amorosa sin serlo. Todos estos personajes, llegan a sentirse eternos, cuando aman, ” la tregua de la vida”, pero luego vienen los celos, las decepciones y traiciones.
Y cuando todo termina, comienza el juego otra vez. Carlos Fuentes es, sin duda, un gran escritor.
Diana: The Goddess Who Hunts Alone
Lo cierto es que tiene una forma de narrar que atrapa. Es una novela sin pena ni gloria, vaya, puede uno vivir sin leerla.
Dec 31, Joe rated it did not like it. I love Carlos Fuentes, but since this is based on a real relationship that he seems to have been bitter about, Fuentea felt like it was a one sided, and he was abusing his power of getting published. It made me feel uncomfortable. Apr 28, Maxim rated it it was amazing. Anyway, I would strongly recommend to read this excellent book Recenzia completa pe https: Une femme enfant, chasseresse? Diane, ou la chasseresse solitaire.
Solitaire, oui mais pas seule. On la lit et la fantasme, on la fantasme fantasque et libre Diane. Cette vie de paillettes ne lui irait pas mais elle la regrette. Diane rit et pleure. Jan 10, Kiof added it. By far my favorite Fuentes that I have either read or skimmed.
Opens with a powerful, tortured solitari on the nature of God, with a capital G. Which leads to an equally well-rendered evocation of romance and literary showmanship with the titular Diana.
Caelos slowly veers along in this same general direction of literary and filmic life and love for what may as well be the rest of the novel.
Often it feels like the narrator circles around the carlox, rather than properly elaborate on his and Diana’ By far my favorite Fuentes that I have either read or skimmed. Often it feels like the narrator circles around the issue, rather than properly elaborate on his and Diana’s story — and the dianaa with circular logic is the same with circular novels: An riana humorlessness, and a ponderousness which weighs the book down internally.
Conclusions such as “No bondage is worse than the hope of happiness,” ciana book’s startling fuwntes, or is it at first, sentence, become weighty mealy stuff for the reader once they are bombarded with them. Whatever aphorisms are, swift darlos reading they are not. This book in the end doesn’t do much to change my opinion of Fuentes as an author characteristic of the Boom’s bombast, even while the novel shows me he’s got more tricks up his sleeves than I ever thought.
The model is more Borges now, less and less Garcia Marquez. Hopefully that means as well there will be more Juan Carlos Onetti read in the future than ever before. It is true that you have to wade through an awful lot of philosophizing about love and death during the course of this novel, as the previous reviewer said.
However, to judge it negatively for that is a subjective judgment as is my judging it positively In general, not a lot happens during the course of this novel, and yet I personally found myself rather emotionally gripped. There is also a decent amount of “philosophizing” dedicated to race, class, and politics. In most instances, that c It is true that you have to wade through an awful lot of philosophizing about love and death during the course of this novel, as the previous reviewer said.
