EL SENOR PRESIDENTE MIGUEL ANGEL ASTURIAS PDF

I agree with your observation about dark Latin American writing. I find it very scary. Thanks for the warning. It will tear your heart out and all the while make you feel as if something magical is happening. Asturias is a deft weaver of stories, not to mention a grandfather of the magical realism genre in literature. He wrote all his books in Spanish, of course, and I, of course, had to read the translated verions, which must suffer from the kind of loss all translations suffer, and yet, I cannot fathom how this novel could be any better than it is.

The One of the finest novels you will ever read. It may take a little work to get a copy of this Asturias writes in an almost poetic prose that really draws you in. His characters are engaging and his settings are such that I was able to really visualize his scenes.

The story itself is sad and his words carry you along like a silent observer of some hateful crime that you are unable to prevent but of which you are almost I just finished this novel and it was an exhausting and depressing read. The story itself is sad and his words carry you along like a silent observer of some hateful crime that you are unable to prevent but of which you are almost omniscient.

And of his characters, Asturias brings seemingly insignificant characters from early chapters back as more major players throughout the story, so if you plan to read this pay attention to every character. I highly recommend this book, especially to those who enjoy reading works of historical fiction.

Main article: Magic realism According to scholar Luis Leal, in the genre of magic realism, "the writer confronts reality and tries to untangle it, to discover what is mysterious in things, in life, in human acts. The magical realist does not try to copy the surrounding reality or to wound it but to seize the mystery that breathes behind things. Its aim, unlike that of magic, is to express emotions, not to evoke them". In an interview with Asturias, Gunter Lorenz heralded Asturias as the inventor of magic realism, and even as its most successful practitioner.
