Los escritos irreverentes (El panteón portátil de by Mark Twain,Editorial Impedimenta,Gabriela Bustelo Tortella

By Mark Twain,Editorial Impedimenta,Gabriela Bustelo Tortella

«Este libro no saldrá jamás. Es imposible porque se consideraría una ignominia.» Mark Twain

«De todos los escritores del mundo, quizá sea Mark Twain quien más se haya divertido contando lo que quería contar. Por eso el lector disfruta tanto con su implacable versión de los angeles estupidez, l. a. arrogancia, l. a. ostentación y el disparate generalizado de los angeles humanidad.» (Chicago solar Times)

En 1909, Mark Twain le envió una carta a un amigo en l. a. que le hablaba en confianza de lo último que había escrito: «Este libro no saldrá jamás. Es imposible porque se consideraría una ignominia». Tomada en su conjunto, l. a. obra de Twain quien, junto a Melville, está considerado el Gran Novelista Americano, es una colosal sátira de los angeles naturaleza humana. En el caso de Los escritos irreverentes, recurrió a un género que algunos críticos denominaron «pseudo-historia». Las pequeñas diatribas bíblicas que lo componen, escritas entre 1870 y 1909, evidencian el profundo escepticismo religioso de Twain. El libro que tenemos en las manos oculta bajo su burlona fachada un humorístico y mordaz ataque a los valores establecidos, y es l. a. muestra de una inteligencia stronger, que no deja títere con cabeza. l. a. coincidencia de que este año sea el del centenario de l. a. muerte de Mark Twain da un significado especial a l. a. edición de un libro que, al salir a l. a. luz en Estados Unidos, produjo una verdadera conmoción y estuvo durante meses en l. a. lista de libros más vendidos.

LA PRENSA HA DICHO: «En Los escritos irreverentes Twain se aleja de l. a. ficción al uso para construir un texto que oscila entre los angeles historia, l. a. crónica, el apunte y el microrrelato, y en el que vierte toda su exasperación por el totalitarismo religioso.» Solodelibros
