This is the original magical realism Latin American novel written by the Nobel winning author Asturias It was written in 1949 perhaps including parts written separately and earlier and set ostensively at the turn of the century 1900s Guatemala given telegraphs and light bulbs are mentioned This is the third Asturias novel I ve read including Mulatta and Mr Fly and I think only his second after The President so I did know what to expectThis is one of those potentially difficult to follow hard to grasp the story challengingly descriptive style muddled novels which could end up boring and poorly rated if the style is a surprise to you This is a mix of Faulkener s Absalom GGM Hundred Years virtually any of Cela s novels eg The Hive and the realism of Torres The Land This critical edition is virtually a college book with almost as many pages dedicated to the introduction notes to the text translation history Nobel speech and several other sections as the novel itself about 300 pages For example the translation has to deal with many indigenous words which are relatively unknown to normal Portuguese thereby at the end of chapter 1 only 17 sides you re already on footnote 68The basic story which you only really get to understand at the end is Gaspar Ilom is a local rebel leader of an uprising against the colonial leaders like Colonel Godoy on behalf of the abuse by Maize growers burning forest depleting the land etc Gaspar fails to defend the massacre of his troops and is poisoned with the help of the Zacatones family and vanishesdies Godoy s son Machojon never reaches Candelaria Reinosa to propose Maria Zacatones becomes the sole survivor of her family after a revenge attack aged just one Years later her blind husband Goyo Yic realises she s gone missing under her new name of Maria Tecun seeks her thus fulfilling the mythlegend of vanished Tecunas Nicho Auino the postman delivering money laden letters across the Maria Tecun ridge is feared lost and Hilario is sent to catch up with him Nicho becomes the legendary coyote in the mountain mist and too vanishes I could go on and mention our characters but then it gets complicatedThe style is very engaging poetic metaphorical symbolic The analogy and life of the jungle life oozes from the descriptions of vegetations wildlife the people the clash of cultures The tale is complicated and if you like your stories layed out simply then this isn t for you A couple of uotes Night like day Solitude of a great mirror Vegetation creeping like smoke along rocky soil Suirrels with the leap of chocolate froth in their tails Moles moving like lava trying to perforate the earth before it grows cold and lolling this way and that Gigantic parasites with flowers of porcelain and candy floss Pine cones like bodies of tiny motionless birds sacrificed birds of dry petrified with terror on the ever convulsing branches And the unceasing lament leaves dragged along by the wind Sadness of the cold burnished moon The maize blighting moon But maize costs the sacrifice of the earth which is also human I d like to see you carry a maizefield on your back like the poor earth does And what they re doing now is even uncivilised growing maize to sell it I think I did actually prefer the extreme Mulatta and Mr Fly for style I can understand why this is a crucial work for depth etc but eually why you would be entitled to score it lowly for confused story
