1991. #READ E-PUB Þ El Señor Presidente ⚣ Guatemalan Diplomat And Writer Miguel Angel Asturias Began This Award Winning Work While Still A Law Student It Is A Story Of A Ruthless Dictator And His Schemes To Dispose Of A Political Adversary In An Unnamed Latin American Country Usually Identified As Guatemala The Book Has Been Acclaimed For Portraying Both A Totalitarian Government And Its Damaging Psychological Effects Drawing From His Experiences As A Journalist Writing Under Repressive Conditions, Asturias Employs Such Literary Devices As Satire To Convey The Government S Transgressions And Surrealistic Dream Sequences To Demonstrate The Police State S Impact On The Individual Psyche Asturias S Stance Against All Forms Of Injustice In Guatemala Caused Critics To View The Author As A Compassionate Spokesperson For The Oppressed My Work, Asturias Promised When He Accepted The Nobel Prize For Literature, Will Continue To Reflect The Voice Of The People, Gathering Their Myths And Popular Beliefs And At The Same Time Seeking To Give Birth To A Universal Consciousness Of Latin American Problems I just finished this novel and it was an exhausting and depressing read Don t get me wrong it is a fantastic novel and well worth the time and emotional investment Asturias writes in an almost poetic prose that really draws you in His characters are engaging and his settings are such that I was able to really visualize his scenes The story itself is sad and his words carry you along like a silent observer of some hateful crime that you are unable to prevent but of which you are almost omniscient It is really frustrating and I found myself wanting to yell out to the characters to STOP several times And of his characters, Asturias brings seemingly insignificant characters from early chapters back as major players throughout the story, so if you plan to read this pay attention to every character I highly recommend this book, especially to those who enjoy reading works of historical fiction. reaffirms that my sweet spot for literature seems to be the 20s and 30s Some real gut punches of brutality, and just exceptionally well written and structured elements of surrealism and magical realism, as well as some pure documentary realism, all beautifully mixed together in the age of Trump, it is also perhaps useful to engage with a text like this Power and brutality and selfishness abound.

One of the finest novels you will ever read It will tear your heart out and all the while make you feel as if something magical is happening Asturias is a deft weaver of stories, not to mention a grandfather of the magical realism genre in literature He wrote all his books in Spanish, of course, and I, of course, had to read the translated verions, which must suffer from the kind of loss all translations suffer, and yet, I cannot fathom how this novel could be any better than it is The essence of Asturias talent does not get lost in translation here It may take a little work to get a copy of thisit may cost a little extra moneyit s so much than merely worth it It s a tale you will never forget.
