Sobrebeber (Ensayo general) (Spanish Edition) by Kingsley Amis,Miquel Izquierdo,Ramón De España

By Kingsley Amis,Miquel Izquierdo,Ramón De España

Los jugos embriagadores irrumpieron en un mundo apenas estrenado con l. a. castaña del virtuoso Noé y l. a. argucia nefanda tramada por las hijas de Lot para multiplicarse. Ésas fueron las primeras copas y desde entonces han corrido ríos de alcohol por las llanuras literarias (al fin y al cabo, el líquido elemento mana sin pausa como inductor o bálsamo de casi todos las desdichas). Entre los efluvios del siglo XX destaca una cima del pensamiento etílico: Kingsley Amis. l. a. bebida no fue para él una mera contingencia o un complemento de pasiones más hondas, sino una necesidad perentoria, una alegría autónoma y, a menudo, el único argumento de los angeles obra. Amis fue además un maestro de ese humor taimado, lateral e hipotenuso que gastan los caballeros británicos cuando trinchan el pollo, de modo que este libro es el encuentro en los angeles cumbre entre el divino arte de l. a. ironía y una ciencia humana adquirida tras largos años de paciente exploración. Aquí se cruzan l. a. guasa del filósofo y l. a. sapiencia del crápula para impartir doctrina sobre materias de tanta envergadura como l. a. naturaleza ontológica de los angeles resaca, los angeles dieta del beodo, los ardides del tacaño o las fórmulas (seguramente conjeturas) para eludir una borrachera. Aquí se sirve un delicioso cóctel de sosa cáustica y experiencia destilada. Pasen y beban.
