Transfer of Arms / جابه‌جاییِ سِلاح

ByLuisa ValenzuelaKoushyar Parsi

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
In 'Cambio de Armas' (Transfer of Arms) love and erotic longings are mixed with fear: they are not a strange couple but good partners, as love is fearful and it is this fear that makes this love irresistible. The woman character in the story 'The Word Killer' finds the animal attraction force in a killer and revolts against this inner incompatibility. She loves life, but is drawn to death and violence. In the story “The Fourth MS” Bella is fortunate enough to be part of a resistance movement because of her relationship with an ambassador, while her romantic relationship flourishes in this period. Luisa Valenzuela penetrates the soul of her characters with sensual stories, sometimes realistic, sometimes poetic. Julio Cortazar writes: 'Luisa Valenzuela is bold, without self-censorship, but with careful use of words. Slightly exaggerated, but subtle in representing reality, and not paying much attention to the usual way: it is a way to the deep roots of our situation, aware of discrimination on our continent, but at the same time filled with delights of life. To read her work is to participate in the search for Latin American identity and to enrich oneself.
