Paradiso (Letras Hispánicas) (Spanish Edition)

El caracter de novela de Paradiso es solo una de las multiples facetas de esta asombrosa creacion de la literatura en lengua espanola. Obra de sintesis donde la exuberancia barroca, el hallazgo de un lenguaje erotico lleno de revelaciones, la sobrenaturaleza de una realidad magica, se orquestan en un crescendo que conduce al lector desde la autobiografia a la invencion de un sistema poetico del universo. Esta edicion aporta, ademas del texto definitivo, el valioso testimonio y estudio preliminar de la hermana del autor.

About the Author
Born in Cuba in 1910, Lezama Lima was appointed director of the Department of Literature and Publications of the National Cultural Council and vice-president of the Cuban Artists and Writers Union after the Castro revolution. However, because of the books frank discussion of homosexuality (a taboo topic in Cuba), he was out-of-favor with the Castro regime after Paradiso's publication. He died in 1976.
