Download Los animales salvajes (Spanish Edition) by Griselda Gambaro PDF

By Griselda Gambaro

Gambaro indaga el mundo animal, su condición luminosa u oscura, weak o invencible, y logra contagiarnos inquietud y zozobra.

Un gato con atributos de perro; una mona que no quiere balancearse entre dos lianas porque considera ridículo divertir a otros; un a jirafa que atribuye su dulce melancolía a los angeles tristeza del mundo; una hormiga que lamenta l. a. exagerada subjetividad de los humanos; un perro insomne que, cuando se duerme, sueña que es pájaro. Salvajes o domésticos, los animales de estos relatos logran eludir l. a. clasificación humana, los angeles representación fácil, las formas consabidas.

El narrador se asoma a cada uno de esos universos "nostálgicos de aquel paraíso común" y los interpela con extrema delicadeza, como si quisiera disolver una vieja ofensa o acceder a sus secretos, franqueando esa frontera irrisoria y soberbia que levantamos frente a ellos. Pero no lo hace con actitud paternalista o concesiva: todo lo contrario, admira el enigma que celosamente esconde cada especie.

Con destellos de humor y un lenguaje refinado y austero, Griselda Gambaro indaga el mundo animal, su condición luminosa u oscura, weak o invencible, y logra contagiarnos inquietud y zozobra: ese reino y el de los seres humanos se parecen tanto, que bestialidad y humanidad emergen de allí gratamente confundidas.

Ce n'était guère le second d'avoir des références littéraires. Elle n'avait pas seulement les paupières baissées de strength mais un tissu noir dessus, ou bien plutôt le foulard d'un de ses kidnappeurs à en juger par l'odeur strong point et pas des plus raffinées qui s'en dégageait. »
