Cuentos Completos 1, Cortazar (Complete Short Stories 1, Cortazar) (Spanish Edition)

Customer Reviews:

Brilliant, unsettling stories.

By David M. Giltinan - July 5, 2009

Borges and Cortazar are the two giants in the literary pantheon of 20th century Argentina. Although the genius of Borges is not questioned, interestingly, it is Cortazar who takes top place in the hearts of modern Argentines. They will tell you that it is he, not Borges, who writes about the regular 'man on the street', that he was the more politically engaged (the fact that Borges was born, and died, in Switzerland will be mentioned, with the implication that Borges did not concern himself with Argentina's domestic political turmoil), and that Cortazar's writing is infinitely more accessible than the cerebral musings of Borges.

These are strongly held beliefs (I've had the experience of being chastised by the friendly waiter at my local Italian restaurant in Buenos Aires for reading Borges - in his view I would have done much better with Cortazar) which have almost no basis in fact.

Julio Cortazar the Master

By A. Martinez - June 5, 2009

If this is your first encounter with Cortazar you will be greatly surprise with these short stories where you will find the surrealism, the mystery of an Edgar Allan Poe. This book is a must to the reader who loves the mystery and if you want to become an active reader versus a passive reader. Cortazar immerse you in the deep of the subconscience and you need to detangle his web. My fascination with Cortazar started with a very short story "La noche boca arriba" after I read that one I was hooked to the world of Cortazar. Some of his short stories had been brought to the big screen like Blowup. Cortazar is a must read and this collection is the way to start to know the Master Julio Cortazar.

Julio Cortázar, el gran cronopio.

By Abiezer - December 8, 2012

Este libro de cuentos es excelente, principalmente porque empieza con Bestiario y La Otra Orilla, sus primeros libros de cuentos. Definitivamente recomiendo este libro para todos los amantes de este gran escritor que mezcla lo mágico con la realidad en sus cuentos.
