Adán en Edén by Carlos Fuentes

By Carlos Fuentes

Un poderoso empresario make a decision llevar adelante su propia lucha contra el tráfico de droga y los narcos, y ganarles los angeles partida con su mismo juego, siendo más legal que ellos. En esta novela de Carlos Fuentes, como a veces en los angeles realidad, todo se derrumba.

Ciudades perdidas, callampas, villas miseria, favelas, todas son lo mismo. Eso lo sabe Adán Gorozpe, cínico arribista que pasó de pobretón estudiante a poderoso mandamás gracias a un afortunado "braguetazo", y también Adán Góngora, ministro a shipment de los angeles seguridad nacional que ha puesto en marcha una estrategia espeluznante que incluye alianzas con criminales, encarcelamiento de inocentes y uno que otro asesinato.

Un día, Góngora le propone a Gorozpe asociarse para elevar su juegp al más alto nivel: "¿Qué tal si usted y yo, tocayo, apoyamos a un candidato imposible para l. a. primera magistratura del país?". Ese candidato, claro, sería Gorozpe. Sólo que para ese momento, él lo sabe, deberá deshacerse de Góngora, o al menos neutralizarlo. ¿Cómo proceder contra tan ambitious adversario? ¿Cómo detener el remolino que arrastra al país hacia los angeles cloaca?

La única vía abierta siempre es los angeles del espíritu. Ciega e irracional, pero también poderosa, avasalladora, los angeles fe sigue ahí. Un Niño Dios alado empieza a predicar en medio del tráfico de los angeles mayor avenida de los angeles ciudad y su madre, l. a. Virgen, lo acompaña. Las sadly del niño son postizas y su madre es quien se las coloca, pero eso no importa. los angeles gente cree, quiere creer, necesita creer, y eso basta.

La crítica ha opinado:

"En Adán en Edén brotan algunas páginas del excelente y lúcido escritor que sigue siendo Fuentes, una de las voces imprescindibles de los angeles narrativa latinoamericana y universal" -Joaquín Marco, El Cultural -

Sample text

Soyinka explores the ritual form of drama not as an ahistorical ideal but as an examination of history, raising it to cosmic proportions. His representation of the experience of unity in West African myth is complemented by analogous representations in another non-Western tradition, that of Sanskrit poetics, which also describes the structure of binary oppositions as being subsumed by a coexistence of opposites. Soyinka's "fourth space," which he distinguishes from the three commonly acknowledged African worlds—that of the ancestors, the unborn, and the living—constitutes a coexistence of all spaces, which forms the basis for a glimpse by performer and spectator of a coexistence of Emptiness and Form.

What the play conveys is the absurdity of defiance as much as the absurdity of conformism, the tragedy of the individualist who cannot join the happy throng of less sensitive people, the artist’s feelings as an outcast. (1991: 183) Ionesco’s Rhinoceros 59 Esslin goes on to compare Berenger to Kafka’s Gregor Samsa in Metamorphosis. While Samsa finds himself transformed into a giant bug as everyone else remains normal, Berenger soon discovers that the definition of normalcy has undergone a radical modification: the conventional qualities of a human are no longer considered to be as normal as the attributes of a rhino, for, as we shall see, even before their physical transformation the characters have already started to undergo an internal transformation.

Stanley, who won’t even go for a walk with Lulu, represents an individual who finds greater fulfillment in the absence of desire than in its gratification. Unlike Goldberg, Stanley senses that fulfilling a desire has nothing to do with acquiring a tangible object or sensation, but simply with the momentary suspension of desire itself. If that suspension can be prolonged, then fulfillment becomes an abiding state of mind. Members of a localized community such as that to which Goldberg and McCann belong fear such a suspension for it would undermine their very existence, which depends upon the need of individuals to find support and security in shared objects of desire.
