Download La marca del editor (Argumentos Anagrama) (Spanish Edition) by Roberto Calasso,Edgardo Dobry Lewin PDF

By Roberto Calasso,Edgardo Dobry Lewin

En una época de aplanamiento de las categorías, de fácil acceso a una supuesta biblioteca common digitalizada (en verdad, fragmentaria y caótica), el editor tiende a ser visto como un intermediario innecesario entre el escritor y el lector. Este breve volumen de Roberto Calasso viene a rebatir punto por punto ese y otros graves errores de los adalides de l. a. inmediatez, l. a. velocidad y el rendimiento monetario como categorías absolutas. Apoyado en su excepcional situación, en el cruce entre el gran editor –dirige desde hace muchos años un sello italiano tan prestigioso como Adelphi, una referencia internacional– y el escritor de enorme cultura y agudeza crítica –por mencionar sólo sus últimos trabajos, ha escrito libros ya clásicos sobre Kafka, Baudelaire, Tiepolo y sobre l. a. mitología hindú (todos ellos publicados por Anagrama)–, Calasso adopta una posición lúcida y comprometida, argumentada y avalada por su propia trayectoria. Al glosar los angeles figura de los grandes editores europeos y estadounidenses del siglo XX, Calasso muestra los angeles importancia decisiva que sellos como Gallimard, Einaudi, Suhrkamp o Farrar, Straus & Giroux han tenido en l. a. formación de un criterio y un público lector, en el ordenamiento y los angeles separación del grano de los angeles paja en lo que a literatura se refiere. Calasso argumenta su notion de «la edición como género literario»: un editor de l. a. estirpe a los angeles que él pertenece es un buscador de «libros únicos», es alguien que escribe, con los libros que publica, el mejor libro de todos: su catálogo, que es a los angeles vez su autobiografía. Por eso, frente a l. a. thought de quienes quieren manejar l. a. edición como una industria cualquiera, este libro muestra, a los angeles vez con finura y contundencia, los angeles importancia del editor que defiende y cultiva su marca. Sin l. a. cual todo se achata en una única categoría: l. a. del entretenimiento fácil y el rápido olvido. No es un atractivo menor el recorrido que hace Calasso por su propia memoria, por las grandes personalidades con las que trató, no sólo del ámbito editorial, sino también, claro, del literario; en ese aspecto, es insuperable el retrato que traza aquí, por ejemplo, de Thomas Bernhard. l. a. marca del editor puede leerse como una continuación de Cien cartas a un desconocido, el libro con el que, a través de los textos de las contracubiertas escritas para los libros de Adelphi, Calasso inauguraba sus memorias como editor. l. a. marca del editor completa el trazado de una trayectoria excepcional, el de una estirpe que ha formado nuestra sensibilidad y nuestra cultura, y que ahora más que nunca necesita nuestro reconocimiento.

By Alberto Paredes

El acto de narrar es antiguo, rico y sorprendente como el hombre mismo. Por esta razón podemos ser identificados como el "Homo fabulator". los angeles operación de contar participa de los angeles magia: crear mundos con sólo palabras. Por lo tanto es una técnica, un arte que resulta del minucioso concurso de una serie de estrategias y procedimientos verbales para que "le pasen cosas a personas"... que no tienen existencia fuera de las tapas del libro que sostenemos entre las manos y gracias al cual estamos en otra parte sin desplazarnos físicamente.
Esas son "Las voces del relato" que Alberto Paredes disecciona metódicamente. Se trata a l. a. vez de una obra teórica y de un guide de narratología. El lenguaje expositivo es llano y conversacional de forma que cada término técnico queda identificado y descrito con l. a. mayor sencillez posible. A cada paso, extractos provenientes de grandes narradores del siglo XX ilustran las nociones sustantivas.
