Description

All this is well and good, but as Saunders astutely points out in “A Swim in a Pond in the Rain,” Ivan is an unreliable narrator.

Quizá yo sea la excepción que confirma la regla, pero la verdad es que nunca he sentido la menor inclinación por la escritura, del mismo modo en que disfruto comiendo, pero huyo de la cocina siempre que puedo. and comes from perhaps the most radical idea of all: that every human being is worthy of attention and that the origins of every good and evil capability of the universe may be found by observing a single, even very humble, person and the turnings of his or her mind. There is something essential ridiculous about critics, anyway," said Randal Jarrell, a pretty good critic himself. And that, by extrapolation, every person in the world has his or her inner orchestra, and the instruments present in their orchestras are, roughly speaking, the same as the ones in ours.Every chapter articulated a truth a book that, as an avid reader, I had felt before and never knew for sure that anyone else shared. Gogol’s contribution was to perform this throwing of himself against the fence in the part of town where the little men live, the sputtering, inarticulate men whose language can’t rise to the occasions but who still feel everything the big men (articulate, educated, at ease) feel. Leer mil veces, cuestionando cada decisión —un giro de la trama, una característica de un personaje, la mera elección de una palabra— y cambiándola por otra mejor que es, en definitiva, la que como escritor te guste más. This is a resistance literature, written by progressive reformers in a repressive culture, under constant threat of censorship… The resistance in the stories is quiet, at a slant, and comes from perhaps the most radical idea of all: that every human being is worthy of attention and that the origins of every good and evil capability of the universe may be found by observing a single, even very humble, person and the turnings of his or her mind.

Reading short stories with George Saunders over my shoulder helping me to appreciate and unpack them is now the only way I want to read short stories? Nonetheless, as he points out, “even in English, shorn of those delights, they have worlds to teach us.Una gran historia cumple con las expectativas creadas, pero nunca de la manera más directa y previsible; eso defraudaría al lector.

I thought the story was dull unless you are interested in the anthropology and the ways of the entertainment between the Russian lower classes circa mid 19th century.

El libro toca muchos más temas: causalidad, descripciones, omisiones… pero Saunders nunca ofrece recetas ni reglas de oro, a veces incluso parece contradecirse: comentando un relato te habla de la economía inherente a esta forma literaria (todo lo que está tiene que estar por algo) y en el siguiente de las descripciones y digresiones que dan textura a la narración. I started by drinking a bucket of watery domestic beer in a dank dark room, I followed this up by eating an entire pizza by myself at 3 in the morning.
