Book: Adolfo Bioy Casares «La trama celeste»

La trama celeste

Серия: "Biblioteca Bioy Casares"

En los seis relatos que componen "La trama celeste" - escritos entre 1944 у 1948 - la inagotable fantasia de Adolfo Bioy Casares teje en tomo a los juegos de apariencia у realidad, espaciales у temporales, audaces variaciones de sorprendente originalidad. Si "En memoria de Paulina" tiene por argumento la encarnacion de una fantasia convertida en destructora obsesion, "De los reyes futures" toma como motivo las imprevisibles consecuencias de los experimentos de un naturalista. La posibilidad de la existencia de varios mundos paralelos, una ancestral leyenda celta у un intento de veneer al tiempo enmarcado en una investigation casi policial dan origen a "El idolo", "La trama celeste" у "El perjurio de la nieve", mientras que "El otro laberinto" revela el amor de Bioy "por esa delicada Cenicienta, la belleza menos facil, la simple" . Формат: 11 см х 17, 5 см.

Adolfo Bioy Casares

fiction writer.

Bioy Casares was born in Buenos Aires, the grandson of a wealthy landowner and dairy processor. His parents were keen alphabet enthusiasts, which explains their choice of his initials "ABC". He wrote his first story ("Iris y Margarita") at the age of 11. He was a friend and frequent collaborator of Jorge Luis Borges and wrote many stories with him under the pseudonym of H. Bustos Domecq. Bioy and Borges were introduced in 1932 by Victoria Ocampo, whose sister, Silvina Ocampo, Bioy Casares was to marry in 1940. In 1954 they adopted Bioy’s daughter with another woman; Marta Bioy Ocampo (1954-94) was killed in an automobile accident just three weeks after Silvina Ocampo’s death, leaving two children. The estate of Silvina Ocampo and Adolfo Bioy Casares was awarded by a Buenos Aires court to yet another love child of Adolfo Bioy Casares, Fabián Bioy, shortly before Fabián Bioy died, aged 40, in February 2006.

He won several awards, including the Gran Premio de Honor of SADE (the Argentine Society of Writers, 1975), the French Légion d'honneur (1981), the title of Illustrious Citizen of Buenos Aires (1986), and the Premio Miguel de Cervantes (awarded to him in 1991 in Alcalá de Henares).

Adolfo Bioy Casares is buried in La Recoleta Cemetery, Buenos Aires.

In 2006 Ediciones Destino published a book of Bioy's diary entries on Borges, numbering 1663 pages of anecdotes, witicisms and observations.

Works

The best-known novel by Bioy Casares is "La invención de Morel" ("Morel's Invention"). It is the story of a man who, evading justice, escapes to an island said to be infected with a mysterious fatal disease. Struggling to understand why everything seems to repeat, he realizes that all the people he sees there are actually recordings, made with a special machine, invented by Morel, which is able to record not only three-dimensional images, but also voices and scents, making it all undistinguishable from reality. The story mixes realism, fantasy, science fiction and terror. Borges wrote a famous prologue in which he called it a work of "reasoned imagination" and linked it to H. G. Wells' "oeuvre". Both Borges and Octavio Paz described the novel as "perfect." The story is held to be the inspiration for Alan Resnais's "Last Year in Marienbad" and also an influence on the TV series "Lost".
