Böyle bir kitabın varlığından haberdar değildim. (evet cenkerdemin dediği gibi, cahilliiik çok kötü bir şeydir) Başka bir kitap almak için gitmiştim kitabevine. Gözlerimi Latin Amerika edebiyatı rafında gezdirirken, José Martí ismini görünce, şöyle bir durdum. Yok yahu, dedim, bu başka bir José Martí'dir herhalde.

Küba'nın ulusal kahramanı, kurucu babası, fikir adamı, özgür Latin Amerika fikrini savunup, İspanyol koloniciliğine, ABD egemenliğine karşı duran, şair, gazeteci, ve daha bir sürü şey.

Bir şair roman yazınca, herhalde o romanın şiirsel olması kaçınılmazdır. (Kaldı ki, şiirsellik sadece şairlerin mülkü de değildir.) Talihsiz Dostluk'u bu gerçeğin ışığında, büyük beklentilerle değil ama yoğun metaforik üslubundan haz duymaya çalışarak okumak gerekiyor. Benzetmeler metne bir nakış gibi işlenmiş, diyerek bir benzetme de ben yapayım. Üslubu bakımından (ve bir üslubun romanı olması bakımından) Karanlık Thomas'nın (Blanchot) ve hatta Niteliksiz Adam'ın (Musil) uzak akrabası sayılabil ...more

Recommended to Karen by: Required reading for my Cuban Literature class
One of the first modernist novels in Latin America. Marti introduces for the first time some elements that would later become signatures of the modernist novel in Spanish.
The many layers of metaphors and binary oppositions can be at times overwhelming, so I am very happy that I read this in a class where I could discuss and analyze it.
