Электронная книга: Ángeles Mastretta «Armuvalu»

Armuvalu

Liberaalse kasvatusega ning igas ettevõtmises kirglik ja jõuline Emilia Sauri teeb elus valikuid, mis XX sajandi alguse Mehhiko meestekeskses maailmas on lausa ennekuulmatud: ta võtab vabaduse armastada kahte meest, laseb end haarata revolutsiooni- ja sõjakeerisesse ning pühendab elu oma suurele kutsumusele – arstiametile. Emiliaon moodne Ladina-Ameerika naine, kes pöördub ühtviisi nii kaasaegse kui traditsioonilise meditsiini poole ning tegutseb ühesuguse loomulikkusega nii New Yorgis kui ka kõige kehvemas Mehhiko kolkakülas.Ángeles Mastretta kuulub silmapaistva Mehhiko autorina kaheldamatult Ladina-Ameerika kirjanduskaanonisse, oluline on ka tema tegevus naiste õiguste eest seismisel. Ligi kahekümnesse keelde tõlgitud romaani „Armuvalu“ eest pälvis Mastretta 1997. aastal esimese naisena Ladina-Ameerika tähtsaima kirjandusauhinna, Rómulo Gallegose preemia, mida antakse välja aasta parima hispaaniakeelse romaani eest.

Ángeles Mastretta

Ángeles Mastretta (born October 9, 1949, in Puebla) is a Mexican author and journalist. She is well known for creating inspirational female characters and fictional pieces that reflect the social and political realities of Mexico in her life.

Background

Mastretta began writing as a journalist for a Mexican magazine, "Siete" and an afternoon newspaper, "Ovaciones". She claims that her father — a journalist in her youth — inspired her to be a writer.

In 1974, she received a scholarship from the Mexican Writers’ Center. She attended the center and was able to work on her writing abilities along with other authors such as Juan Rulfo, Salvador Elizondo, and Francisco Monterde. After a year of working at the Mexican Writers’ Center, a collection of Mastretta’s poetry entitled "La pájara pinta" "(The Colorful Bird)" was published.

Mastretta really wanted to focus on a novel that she had been thinking about for years. She finally got her chance to work on this novel when an editor offered to sponsor Mastretta on a six-month leave of absence, allowing her to focus solely on writing. She took the offer and ended up embarking on a sabbatical to complete "Arráncame la vida" ("Tear This Heart Out"). The novel (published in 1985) was an immediate hit, and earned her the Mazatlán Prize for Literature for Best Book of the Year.

"Arráncame la vida" was a critical and popular success in Mexico and abroad. As a result, Mastretta was able to focus more on her fiction-writing passion. The novel based the film of the same name released in September 2008.

Mastretta won the Rómulo Gallegos Prize for her 1996 novel, "Mal de Amores" ("Lovesick").

When her infant daughter unexpectedly fell ill, Mastretta sat next to her child in the hospital and began to tell stories of interesting and different women in her family who were important to her in critical moments of her life. These stories of women who "decided their own destinies" became the inspiration for "Mujeres de ojos grandes (Women with Big Eyes)". The publication — autobiographical narratives based on each of the women — was intended to preserve the stories for posterity.
