Pecado by Laura Restrepo PDF

Un viaje al corazón del mal inspirado en El jardín de las delicias del Bosco.

La nueva novela de Laura Restrepo, ganadora de los premios Alfaguara de novela, Sor Juana Inés de l. a. Cruz, Prix France tradition, Arzobispo Juan de San Clemente y Grinzane Cavour.

Virtudes y crímenes son intercambiables entre sí y reversibles: l. a. naturaleza desdoblada del pecado, sus varias caras de poliedro.

Campocé, el ejecutivo adúltero; Emma, los angeles descuartizadora; una pareja incestuosa; un verdugo apodado los angeles Viuda; las Susanas, tres hermanas indiferentes o vanidosas, y el Siríaco, profeta soberbio.

La perturbadora y ambigua notion de pecado se encarna en todos ellos. El jardín de las delicias ha dejado de esta colgado en el museo y se muestra más genuine que nunca, vivido por estos personajes de carne y hueso que nos confiesan al oído su specific relación con el mal. ¿Hasta qué punto son culpables? Sobre el lector recaerá el reto ethical de condenarlos o, tal vez, de indultarlos.

Con l. a. fuerza y los angeles sensibilidad que caracterizan su literatura, Laura Restrepo indaga en los angeles complejidad ética de l. a. transgresión a través de una narración inquietante, unique, por momentos aterradora y al mismo tiempo dulcemente humana. Cada pecado trae consigo su correspondiente culpa, pero también su gota de alivio.

Sample text

Both Shakespeare and Nielsen’s Hamlets fail to partake in the patrilinear system of exchange and thereby deviate from straight time as well as traditional gender roles and straight sexuality. The crown (an important symbol of inherited power in Shakespeare’s play as in real monarchies) in the film takes a central role in embodying the progression of patrilinear time: the transfer of power from father to son or from older to younger brother, which ensures temporal continuity. Like the Lacanian phallus, this crown can only be possessed by men, but is transported through a woman – through possessing Gertrude as either a wife or a mother – and thereby sutures one generation to the next.

These visual breaks and delays draw attention to the discontinuities of the film images underneath the apparent sequence. But most importantly, the film is centred on Nielsen’s disruptive ‘drag’ performance as a cross-dressing woman. Nielsen could justify casting herself as Hamlet by pointing to a tradition of comic drag roles in Shakespearean theatre: most actors were male in Shakespeare’s time, and his comedies often exploit the fact that even the female roles were played by men when they feature humorous temporary cross-dressing within the plot – male actors played women who dressed up as men.

7 The set also looks very medieval, using the thirteenth-century imperial residence at Goslar (heavily restored in the nineteenth century) as the main location for the outdoor scenes. In this medieval world, modern assumptions about time as linear no longer apply. Boellstorff (2007, p. 232) argues that straight, linear time ‘cannot conceive of co-presence without incorporation’: one object cannot exist in the same place at the same time as another without subsuming it. But in the 1921 Hamlet, modern spectators have to get used to the co-presence of different points in time that are visualized by the different genders.
