Download E-books Lisboa. Un melodrama PDF

By Leopoldo Brizuela

Lisboa, noviembre de 1942. Portugal recibe un ultimátum para entrar en l. a. guerra. El terror a los angeles ocupación nazi o al bombardeo aliado se adueña de Lisboa. En ese contexto, el cónsul de otro país impartial, los angeles Argentina, atrae l. a. atención al anunciar sorpresivamente los angeles donación de un cargamento de cereales, cuyo destinatario concreto no revelará hasta que el gobierno, cada vez más receloso, autorice el desembarco de l. a. carga.

En una sola y larguísima noche, mientras miles de refugiados de toda Europa esperan los angeles partida del barco Boa Esperança para ponerse a salvo de los nazis, l. a. gesta del cónsul argentino es el cedazo en que se entrecruzan, como en un folletín, las "historias más secretas" de un período único en los angeles historia. El propio cónsul, los angeles mítica pareja de Tania y Armando Discépolo, l. a. cantante de fados Amália, y el misterioso Ricardo De Sanctis, que asegura ser banquero y "refugiado personal" del Cardenal de Lisboa.

Erizada de sentimientos, emociones y pasiones, excesiva como todo melodrama, prodigiosa en l. a. creación de climas e intensamente atractiva en las confesiones que los personajes intercambian, Lisboa tiene los angeles precisión arquitectónica de una ambiciosa pieza teatral y musical, en los angeles que del coro multitudinario emergen los solistas para hacer oír sus deseos y padecimientos.

La crítica ha dicho...

«Me parece que Lisboa. Un melodrama, además también de una investigación amorosa, es el tipo de novela que se está obligado a escribir si se quiere ser un novelista de verdad.»
J. Ernesto Ayala-Dip, El País

«Como una suerte de Pirandello contemporáneo de los angeles narrativa argentina, en el teatro que monta Brizuela los seres están desnudos. Algunos actores engañosamente secundarios tienen sus momentos de gloria, como el secretario del consulado y su patética mujercita (Ordónez y Sofía), el maestro de canto de Carlos Gardel, Eugénio de Oliveira, y un joven, Ricardo de Sanctis, que asegura ser "refugiado" own del cardenal de Lisboa, entre tantos otros dentro un elenco inusual para las novelas de estos tiempos.»

Download E-books Lord Horror PDF

By David Britton

It really is indisputable, after all, that Lord Horror offers with disagreeable subject-matter: race-hatred; the glamour of Fascism; the psychology of repression and oppression. The author's approach to facing those topics is one whose roots are to be present in the sarcastic fantasies of the French and English Decadent routine and within the theatricality of Alfred Jarry's Ubu Roi. The novel's primary characters—Lord Horror and the Führer of whom he's in search—are grotesques, and their adventures represent a phantasmagorical black comedy. Their activities, attitudes and aspirations are paradoxically exaggerated to the purpose of ludicrous cartoon. The artistry of this technique is, lamentably, sure to fall on stony floor whilst the sort of ebook is learn (or in brief glanced at) through males who're so wilfully and stubbornly silly that they flatly refuse to recognize irony. One might have idea that there has been little room for crude literalism in considering David Britton's Hitler—a quaintly pathetic determine quietly pursuing his study within the philosophy of Schopenhauer whereas his unheeded masculinity, symbolised through the highly expansive previous Shatterhand, entertains tremendous inconvenient delusions of grandeur—but one shouldn't ever underestimate the capability which the censorious brain has for crudity of perception.

The personality of Lord Horror derives, finally, from the infamous "traitor" William Joyce, who broadcast German propaganda to the British humans on Joseph Goebbels' behalf in the course of the years of global battle II. Joyce's exaggeratdely aristocratic English accessory inspired his listeners to consult him as "Lord Haw-Haw", a comic story which fast turned an important part of the folklore of the conflict. (The skill to show an authentically sinister resource of tension into irreverent comedy is, after all, a massive approach to mental defence—but no longer, one needs to imagine, a style that may make any feel to the type of those who sit down as magistrates in British crown courts.) Joyce had lived in England and eire for a few years earlier than the outbreak of worldwide conflict II and have been lively in Oswald Mosley's Fascist association; he had, furthermore, fraudulently bought a British passport. the very fact continues to be, despite the fact that, that he was once now not British at all—he was once an American citizen—and his defection to Germany in 1939 was once now not, technically, an act of treason. Joyce was once a repulsive guy with repulsive principles, who had performed his point top to hurt the folk of the uk, however the eagerness of the British to hold him—which they did on three January 1946—undeniably represents a triumph of censorious zeal over extra sophisticated beliefs of Justice. it should, after all, be rude publicly to entertain the proposition that issues haven't replaced a lot during the final half-century.

David Britton's Lord Horror is a personality who proudly wears the glamour of Fascism, and proudly keeps the prejudices and aspirations of Nazism, yet this could now not be taken, even by means of the meanest mind, to suggest that he's held up by means of the writer as an appropriate role-model. the aim of horror is to horrify; the characterization of Lord Horror is calculated to excite alarm and nervousness; the plot during which he figures endeavours to accomplish revelation via surprise strategies. Lord Horror units out to be a horror tale, an alarmist myth, and a provocatively stunning textual content; it succeeds. The narrative is usually very humorous, and occasionally totally repulsive, and seeks by way of such large swings of temper to reinforce its total impact; it succeeds. The imagery of the tale borrows at the one hand from comic-strip paintings and at the different from the philosophical Weltanshauung of Schopenhauer, trying via such bizarre juxtapositions to intensify the reader's experience of the grim absurdity of the well mannered veneer which overlies the politics of genocide; it succeeds. Lord Horror isn't any literary confection; it isn't a piece of mild escapism. it truly is, notwithstanding, a booklet worthy interpreting, and a publication whose protection is worthy battling for.
