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: los angeles 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 concept de pecado se encarna en todos ellos. El jardín de las delicias ha dejado de esta colgado en el museo y se muestra más actual 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 los angeles fuerza y l. a. 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.

Example text

Anzaldúa’s work suggests that this is observable within and outside of texts: “In the ethno-poetics and performance of the shaman, my people, the Indians did not split the artistic from the functional, the sacred from the secular, art from everyday life. The religious, social and aesthetic purposes of art were all intertwined … The writer, as shape-changer, is a nahual, a shaman” (Anzaldúa 66). Even as a characteristic rather than a definitive qualifier,3 myth is a primary force within Chicana ritualizations4 and ritual criticism assists in building the bridge toward a better understanding of the spiritual, supernatural, and religious operating within Chicana fiction.

Nepantla is painful, messy, confusing, and chaotic; it signals unexpected, uncontrollable shifts, transitions, and changes … As I understand the term, then, nepantla includes both radical dis-identification and transformation. We disidentify with existing beliefs, social structures, and models of identity; by so doing, we are able to transform these existing conditions. 42 H. ANDRONE So nepantla is a space of transformation and discomfort where collisions of and decisions about identity abide. The experience causes personal recognition and a “shift in perception” that precedes Coatlicue states Anzaldúa describes as “numinous” in which her consciousness can begin to acknowledge both body and soul.

These collective wailing rites may have been a sign of resistance in a society which glorified the warrior and war and for whom the women of the conquered tribes were booty. (33) It is Anzaldúa’s critical examination of a religious Aztec rite that leads to her association of La Llorona to wailing rites as a sign of female resistance within an antagonist society. Doing so implicates La Llorona’s wailing and loss as informed by or parallel to the mourning rites performed by women whose families were violated by a war orchestrated to placate gods and ensure survival.
