Lear, Rey & Mendigo

En 1990 Nicanor Parra emprendió la traducción del Rey Lear de William Shakespeare. Esta, aunque teatralizada por Alfredo Castro, permaneció inédita durante catorce años y recién ahora el lector tiene en sus manos un libro mítico que, según el escritor argentino Ricardo Piglia, asegurará a Parra un lugar de honor en una Enciclopedia biográfica de traductores inmortales.

Inmensa apropiación huacha la de don Nicanor. Recomendadísimo para los interesados por las traducciones hechas por poetas.

ay! pura muerte y traición! Volver a leer el Rey Lear me deja con la misma sensación de la primera vez. Que la mentira es terrible, que la traición es horrible, que sufro y me encanta a la vez.
Excelente traducción de el gran Nicanor Parra. Lo latinizó, o chilenizó en justa medida.

Hace poco vi un montaje de Otelo, que la verdad solo sufrí porque no me gustó nada (el montaje) será que es cada vez más difícil montar una obra de shakespeare sin ser pretencioso y aburrido? mmm...
