Confesiones Paganas By Renato Espinoza
Paperback: $15.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Las paradojas presentes en los personajes han sido uso de autores de la talla de Kafka y se evidencia como una constante en los relatos. Ya lo decía Albert Camus: “La vida del hombre es... More > absurdo y contingencia; y es por eso que el hombre, al ser el único ser capaz de sentir empatía, debe comprometerse con toda la humanidad.” No menos fatalistas son las situaciones en estos relatos donde el absurdo cobra importancia absoluta en una sociedad en la cual este es aceptado de una manera impuesta pero con un aspecto cotidiano. Pero al autor ha sabido ceñir la segunda propuesta de Camus. Los personajes tienen una batalla férrea contra estas contradicciones donde están presente los valores humanos como principal arma contra los opresores. Un texto de estas cualidades nos dejan, más que sensaciones, ideas que son extraídas de los sucesos que nos presentan ya que tienen un enorme parecido, sino metáfora, de nuestra realidad.< Less

More > stories seemingly endless, the reader will return to the story itself in the hope of finding guidance from within.

Heralded as the premier existentialist piece of the modern century, L'anomie puts an answer to the questions left open since the tumultuous decade that saw the death of Camus. Hilarious,... More > thought-provoking, edgy, nonsensical, this novel has been described as a "game-changer" of modern lit. The third novel of the most influential literary circle of this decade, its hard yet tender prose is clearly a product of this bad boy's club of literature. The plot is at times so impenetrable that it is rumored to have been written by over fifty people. It is a must read for anyone who considers themselves a student of literature.< Less
