Adolfo Bioy Casares explores in Historias de amor the theme of love within these stories that, among others, tells us of the suffering of a man that looses without gaining what he wished for; the survival of a woman in the memory of two rivals; the strangeness of first encounters; a phrase that ruins a situation long waited for; or hibernation of two lovers that reconcile a hundred years later.

A beautiful short-stories collection by this great Argentinean writer!

Dieciocho historias cortas. Las mejores son en las que se burla con bastante mala leche del machito argentino de la alta sociedad.

Me habían recomendado tanto este libro después de que leí "la invención de Morel" que tenía muy altas espectativas y la verdad que con excepción de dos o tres cuentos la mayoría me pasaron de

Adolfo Bioy Casares, ficou conhecido, assim como seu conterrâneo e amigo, Jorge Luis Borges, por sua verve fantástica. Neste livro, entretanto, a ênfase é para os contos de amor. Se existe uma categoria da literatura que se chama "romance de costumes", estes contos poderiam se classificar como "contos de costumes". Dito isso, uma vez que uma história se torna datada e mudam-se os tais costumes, ela passa a ser uma "história de costumes" e não um romance ou conto histórico. Se nos contos fantásti ...more

Amores trágicos, amores no correspondidos y amores unidos por pasiones: desde el deseo hasta la arrogancia.
No es uno de mis tópicos favoritos, salvo por 2 historias el libro medianamente me gustó.

Nunca había leído a este autor, lo busqué pues en "Diario para un cuento" Julio Cortazar dice querer contar la historia de una muchacha y se lamenta de no ser Bioy Casares para contarla bien y bonito.
Ahora lo entiendo
Son historias de amor, pero mas aun, son los cuentos que puede escribir un hombre que nos observa a las mujeres en nuestra constante inconstancia, mujeres que defienden el amor con crueldad, con suspicacia, que juegan a enamorarse y El, pobre mirada incomprensiva, se limita a querer

Histórias de Amor é um livro de contos do famoso escritor argentino, Adolfo Bioy Casares. Apesar de o título e a capa serem bastante sugestivos de histórias românticas, o livro revela uma visão extremamente machista sobre relacionamentos amorosos.

A maioria dos contos é narrada do ponto de vista do homem e as mulheres são apresentadas como personagens interesseiras e fúteis.

Ressalto, entretanto, a maneira surpreendente e até mesmo cínica como o autor encontra para finalizar as histórias, como nos

Desconozco demasiado a Bioy como para saber que tanto tienen estos relatos de "autobiográficos", pero, de todas las historias que engloba en este compendio, tiene más altas que bajas. Lo salva mucho que las altas tienen cosas maravillosas y frases imperecederas como "Primero la verdad, después el amor".

Buscaré más de él para confirmar opiniones.

Uyuyuy. De los 18 relatos rescataría solo 4. Me costó demasiado leerme esto por alguna extraña razón.
