Quasi un'altra donna

“Tutti i brandelli della storia che riuscii a ricordare mi servivano soltanto ad attizzare la mia pietà, a restare in quelle ore dell'alba nel punto esatto della sofferenza che mi faceva felice; un poco al di qua delle lacrime, che mi sentivo nascere dentro e non uscire. E, oltretutto, il rancore per il mondo intero. E questo proprio alla lettera: il mondo intero, tutti noi”.

Al centro di questo breve romanzo del ciclo onettiano di Santa Maria c'è una donna misteriosa, Rita, e

Onetti es un bolastristes, maestro del aburrimiento con su prosa pretendidamente poética. Más que poética, su prosa me parece afectada, insufrible. Dicen que Onetti pasó no sé cuántos años de su vida sin salir de la cama. Su literatura es igual a él, menos vitalista que la mierda.
Lo que en un momento dice un personaje de otro que le cuenta una historia puede aplicar al propio autor: “Es un mal narrador –pensé con poca pena–. Muy lento, deteniéndose a querer lo que ama (…) demasiado seguro de qu

Onetti, meraviglioso Onetti.
Agustín Fest
En esta novela de Santa María, unos hombres entierran a una mujer que llegó al pueblo con todo y chivo. Los hombres que participaron en el entierro se deciden a darle una historia.

Es una de las primeras novelas de Onetti y toca a uno de sus personajes más sonados: Jorge Malabia. No es uno de mis personajes preferidos, pero esta novela sirve para ubicarlo en el universo sanmariano.

Hace un gran contraste con "Los adioses". Es una manera de percibir a Onetti. Quizás estudiarlo. El antes y el desp

Recomiendo esta novela corta a los lectores avisados o novatos de la prosa onettiana que disponen de unas horas para pasear en compañía de algunas almas inquietas, tiernas y llenas de una nostalgia espesa, por las calles, los bares, los prostíbulos…que forman el ya mítico microcosmo llamado Santa María. Como suele ocurrir con los relatos del ciclo de Santa María, el lector no sale indemne de esta excursión; se acerca gradualmente a lo más íntimo del narrador hasta sentirse afectado por sus angus ...more

Read this for a final project on Uruguayan literature -- in Uruguay. I think it's the first book I read cover to cover in the original Spanish, and I imagine that's why I'd like to say it didn't make much sense. With a few more years reading Spanish under my belt, so to speak, I should revisit Onetti and this novel.

Juan Carlos Onetti (July 1, 1909, Montevideo – May 30, 1994, Madrid) was an Uruguayan novelist and author of short stories.
