Description


"Desconcertante, lista a inquietar a la cr tica, est ya en los escaparates la primera novela de Juan Rulfo, "Pedro P ramo", que transcurre en una serie de transposiciones on ricas, ahondando m's all de la muerte de sus personajes, que uno no sabe en qu momento son sue o, vida, f bula, verdad, pero a los que se les oye la voz al trav's de la 'perspicacia despiadada y certera' de tan sin duda extraordinario escritor." Con estas palabras iniciaba Edmundo Valad's la primera rese a de Pedro P ramo, aparecida el 30 de marzo de 1955 y conservada por Rulfo entre sus papeles. Desde entonces, escritores como Jorge Luis Borges, Gabriel Garc a M rquez, Gunter Grass, Susan Sontag y Mario Vargas Llosa, o el cineasta Werner Herzog, entre muchos m's de cualquier lengua, coinciden en calificar esta novela como una de las obras maestras de la literatura de todos los tiempos.

The work of Juan Rulfo (1917-1986) is doubtless the Mexican literary creation which has received the greatest acclaim both in Mexico and abroad. The novel "Pedro P ramo" underwent a long gestation. Rulfo mentioned it for the first time in a letter in 1947, and was able to work on it in 1953-1954 thanks to a grant from the Centro Mexicano de Escritores. Excerpts were published in three magazines in 1954, before the novel appeared in book form in 1955. This masterpiece has numbered Gabriel Garc a M rquez, Jorge Luis Borges, and Susan Sontag among its admirers. "Pedro P ramo" evokes the very essence of Mexico through the most advanced literary forms and techniques of the twentieth century. Few works affect a Mexican reader as deeply as this novel, which also holds a place as a classic of world literature. It has been translated into almost fifty languages and new versions appear every year.
