Condition: New. Language: Spanish. Brand new Book. Su casa era como un respiro de aire puro. Salimos volando. Jenna estaba golpeando el agua con sus manos en un intento desesperado de no hundirse, pues no llevaba puesto un salvavidas. La tragedia fue evadida. Mi hija estaba bien. Inmediatamente nos reunimos a orar y levantar un canto de agradecimiento. Cuando llega el aumento de sueldo, anunciamos: "Dios es bueno". Prometo ser una persona buena y decente, y a cambio Dios. A veces, Dios permite tragedias. Dios promete rendir belleza de "todas las cosas", no de "cada cosa" individualmente.
Los eventos individuales pueden ser malos, pero el fruto final es bueno. No, ninguno de estos. Lo bueno o rico sucede cuando los ingredientes trabajan juntos: la bolsa se abre, los granos se muelen, el agua se calienta a la temperatura exacta. Pero tenemos que dejar que Dios defina lo que es "bueno". This literature, which goes beyond the purely enigmatic nature of the lockedroom mystery, has entered the realm of the postmodern understood as the modernity of modernity 4 for the simple reason that the crisis unleashed beginning on Black Tuesday , has a correlative in the current crisis of capitalism following the demise of the communist paradigm.
We have here, in plain view, the brutal injustices of hypercapitalism: unemployment, begging, urban crime, and the problem of the homeless; the unstoppable flow of immigrants and renewed strains of xenophobia; the ever-more subtle forms of repression and brutality; and corruption and political maneuvering. Since Hammett, North American detective fiction writers of the s and s—as well as the current generation—have not needed to invent reality on any level.
They simply described and interpreted it.
For this reason, it is impossible for the genre to not have a certain relationship with Naturalism and Costumbrismo. These characteristics, by definition, circumscribe the detective novel. It may seem ironic, but the detective genre in our societies is costumbrista. In the case of the hard-boiled Latin American novel, this is becoming increasingly evident. The genre denounces social contradictions, exploitation and violence, and corruption and hypocrisy. Clearly, this is what the practitioners of social realism were doing, but now we see more than just descriptions of injustice, and even fewer instances of lofty revolutionary ideologies being propounded.
Nowadays, parody and existentialism are the key components, which in my opinion are typical elements of postmodernism. More importantly, the most polished writers today are conscious of and concerned with exercising complete control over a topic, and no longer allow the topic to control them.
Violence is not an invention of literature. Literary violence is not fine-tuned, exaggerated, or false.
We live in the same world described by Malcolm Lowry in Under the Volcano Incest and corruption are common currency in modern industrial society. The daily sordid dealings and struggles in labor unions and politics are the raw materials of rampant capitalism in the s. Crime is simply the other side of the mirror, the dark half that shame or fear sometimes and cynicism always attempts to hide. Crime, it can be said, is an unavoidable part of modern life.
Today, anyone can go up on a rooftop and open fire on the neighborhood below; a disgruntled individual can enter a McDonald's restaurant and gun down the customers; any adolescent can enter his school and commit mass murder among his classmates. Why should literature, then, be any different?
Moreover, in the United States, many more citizens are murdered than soldiers killed in all the wars in which the bellicose country has participated, having participated in practically every war during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. No, there can be no doubt that literary violence pales in comparison. Half a century ago, Raymond Chandler said that the authors of this genre write "of a world in which gangsters can rule nations and almost rule cities. Let us examine the reality of contemporary Latin America, where there have been governments run by drug traffickers such as that of Luis Garcia Meza in Bolivia, and constant accusations involving a president of Mexico or Colombia, and even Argentina, where several prominent members of the last government have strong ties to drug trafficking, yet the courts put away a kid for posssessing a joint of marijuana.
Certainly, one can respond by saying that the world was always like this and that crises and injustice have been around forever. And it's true, it was always like this, but I doubt that any previous crisis in the history of humanity has been on this scale. In , the population of the planet reached the impressive six billion mark, and all human miseries hunger, violence, stupidity, cynicism have attained new heights.
Hush, Hush (novela) - Wikipedia, la enciclopedia libre
Man's worst enemy has always been man, but it is likely that man has never been such an enemy as at this turn of the century. This is especially noticeable now with the capability—at once marvelous and terrifying—of seeing all the horrors that go on in the world as they happen, thanks to that Borgesian Aleph each of us has in our television sets.
Of course, what is truly amazing is not that these things happen, but that the majority of people really enjoy watching them unfold. It is not easy to explain why North American practitioners of this genre had— and continue to have—such a wide following throughout the world, and above all in Spain and Latin America.
One hypothesis may be that from an ideological standpoint almost all of them can be defined as liberals—understanding that U. Considered solely as a subliterature aimed at mass consumption, there is no doubt that its popularity and especially the enormous industry of commercial production for the genre first marketed in the pulp magazines of the s and later in film and television contributed to deflating its literary prestige. But it would be truly unfair to reduce all detective fiction to the category of subliterature.
