A book, like a trip, begins with restlessnes and ends with melancholy.
Paris – Buenos Aires. Tracing the hopscotch (Rayuela)
There is no doubt that Rayuela changed the course of twentieth-century Spanish-American literature. Cortázar armed with clockwork precision to combinde music, art, philosophy and literature, a lot of literature. A collage that, made with the most varied references, has seduced the most demanding readers for more than fifty years.
What happens if we separate the hopscotch? (Rayuela)
And if we look for each one of the little pieces that compose it, analyze and contextualize them?
A literary journey that runs between Paris and Buenos Aires to explore its streets and squares, its cafés and its most emblematic places. A visit to the Louvre in the hands of Horacio, a coffee in Montparnasse accompanied by La Maga or an evening at the Circus Las Estrellas. But it is also a hidden history of the avant-garde that takes us from the jazz of the Club de la Serpiente to the tango in a courtyard in Buenos Aires.
From the poetry of T. S. Eliot to Zen Buddhism. From a painting by Vieira da Silva to an engraving by Piranesi.
