Puig ha tale conoscenza del mondo che racconta, e prova una tale empatia per i suoi personaggi, che riesce a essere dentro e fuori il genere, a regalarci un autentico feuilleton facendo allo stesso tempo una parodia del genere. Sono pagine che sanno affrontare il tempo, senza risentirne: La locandina del film nella versione inglese.

Through the use of love letters, one-sided conversations, seemingly-useless lists, mere brush-stroke observations of now-vintage minutiae, conversations with parenteticals attached what the characters are REALLY thinking! One simply cannot ask for more.
Of course it was added to the List inand this gives much cause to rejoice… lost treasure has undoubtedly been re found. View all 12 comments. Jul 04, Vit Babenco rated it it was amazing. Two friends and three girlfriends — their fates turn out to be complicatedly and tragically intertwined… Letters, notices, diaries, remembrances, investigations: Manuel Puig tells his story with the documentary precision.
And it is a story of regrets and human meanness. And the tale is told very powerfully. The past is always a mystery, however small but a mystery… View all 15 comments. Romanzo originale che narra una storia banalissima. Uno scrittore – maschio racconta Romanzo originale che narra una storia banalissima. E’ stato un sollievo inaspettato. Epistles reumen the Ephemerality of Love Like life itself, a letter is usually meant to be ephemeral.
Yet, like lintadas itself, some letters can have a more lasting significance or effect. The letters are love letters between the protagonists when they were young, followed by letters between one of the women and t Epistles on the Ephemerality of Love Like life itself, a letter is usually meant to be ephemeral.
The letters are love letters between the protagonists when they were young, followed by letters between one of the women and the mother of her would-be lover following his death from tuberculosis. These young Argentinians essentially four women and two men, not to mention their parents model their lives and expectations on radio serials and Hollywood romances, much as Madame Bovary was obsessed by romantic fiction When he dies at the very beginning of the novelshe seeks to persuade his mother to return her own letters, so she can keep them together and the tango can continue.
Although nothing lasting ever became of their love, the restoration of the correspondence will reinvigorate Nene, her romanticism and her contentment with life, notwithstanding the mediocrity of her marriage.
The exchange of letters is dance-like, a tango, the outcome a heartbreak. The protagonists the women in particular feel as if their thwarted love has become the subject of musical folklore, just as it fuels the engine of this accomplished experimental novel.
Ute Lemper – “Tango Ballad” https: La recomiendo a muerte. Nadie te lo sabe explicar. Boquitas Pintadas es sobre las miserias humanas del pueblo de Coronel Vallejos. En Coronel Vallejos, Juan Carlos es el playboy del pueblo. La competencia adolescente, las diferentes clases sociales, lo abismal que era venir de una buena familia o no, los cuchicheos, los chismes, los rumores, ‘se dice que Fulana estuvo con Mengano El libro es un rejunte de diferentes tipos de escritos.
Y dudo que cambiemos pronto. By far my favorite of all Puig’s novels. He’s at his absolute best in utilizing a variety of voices and forms letters real and forged, phone conversations, death notices, prayers, photo albums, police reports to tell the story of Juan Carlos and all the women of Vallejos he was involved with. The serial structure of the novel–told in sixteen “episodes,” like a radio drama or telenovela–highlights the way in which the characters tend to interpret their lives through the lens of sentimental po By far my favorite of all Puig’s novels.
The serial structure of the novel–told in sixteen “episodes,” like a radio drama or telenovela–highlights the way in which the characters tend to interpret their lives through the lens of sentimental pop culture, such as the tango. Nelida is extremely guilty of this, what with her belief in only being able to truly love one person in life, in her sexual naivete and myopia in terms of Juan Carlos’s philandering.
That’s just how these people think and talk–which isn’t all that different from today’s average wo man-on-the-street.
These cliched phrases and situations help the characters see a meaning, a structure to their lives, which, to be honest, are fairly unhappy, in both domestic suffering silently in a loveless marriage and melodramatic one character murders the father of her child ways.
Gossip, or the threat of gossip, is even more important to the lives of the characters than the overwrought movie plots that infect their imaginations. Everyone’s afraid of what others might know or find out, something that is reflected in the way the reader is forced to piece everything together.
This really is a wonderful book, and I’m not doing it justice in my written-in-five-minutes review. I’m willing to concede that their “new look” is better than what was going on back some years ago, but it’s awfully repetitive and boring, and when it doesn’t work, it really doesn’t work.
Neon yellow around the title?! Hopefully this’ll sell out in the near future and they’ll rethink this crappy design. Jan 07, Sleeping with Ghosts rated it really liked it Shelves: Apr 17, Alejandro Teruel rated it liked it Shelves: Sep 11, Vale rated it liked it. No es una historia de amor. Jul 05, Karen Abc rated it really liked it Shelves: Su primer comentario fue: Todo comienza con la noticia de un fallecimiento. Como rezaba el dicho: Es todo un Don Juan, un galan de aquellos tiempos.
Celina es otro personaje que nos recuerda algunas facetas de el ser mujer, aquella mujer decidida y con caprichos. Ya que Celina deseaba ver a Juan Carlos relacionado con Mabel.
Quien a su vida llega Pancho, un obrero con aspiraciones a un cargo de policia. Esos giros en el argumento son un deleite para el lector, que se ve sorprendido por estos hechos.
Que por cierto, es algo que siempre encuentro interesante, siempre le pido a mi abuela que me cuente sobre su juventud y ciertamente veo todo eso reflejado en la historia. En cuanto aquello que no me ha gustado tanto, ese estilo epistolar del que hable en la parte de cosas positivas El libro se encuentra dividido en dos partes: Con un tono de pasiones, amor y odio, que conducen a un inesperado final.
Aug 19, Mariana rated it it was amazing Shelves: Por otra parte, Puig introduce a Celina, la hermana del protagonista, a Pancho y a la Rabadilla.
En ellas, no hay amor, solo seres humanos que se inmiscuyen en relaciones y situaciones complejas, que son resultado de sus impulsos mal gestionados. Boquitas pintadas es una novela rara y original.
Boquitas pintadas by Manuel Puig
Dentro de ellas, coloca un resumeb imposible, inalcanzable, que persiguen eternamente, bajo pintadqs certeza de un ideal inexistente, que buscan con el fin de sentirse humanos.
Pese a su estilo particular y su estructura complicada, es una historia que vale la pena leer, pues tiene conclusiones poderosas, cargadas de dolor y nostalgia, propias de nosotros, los lectores. The story focuses on the romances of three women, two of whom love the same man, an ill-fated Blquitas who has tuberculosis.
We also get a glimpse of the romance and tribulations of the folks who are the maids and cooks as well, so there is a bit of Upstairs-Downstairs. We are told in the introduction that, as a flamboyantly gay man, the author was addicted to going to the theatre with his mother from an early age and he imagined himself in the female lead roles. A lively and engaging book by a movie fanatic who transposed cinematic techniques to novels.
Tango lyrics lead off each chapter. Resumwn is Argentina, after all. Jan 02, Andrew rated it it was amazing.
I lost count of the times I re-read this. I wrote my MA thesis on Puig, which should probably have put me off for life, but of all his novels this is the one I’d go back to again. It’s nostalgic and perhaps even sentimental, but it’s a beautifully written boquitzs love and loss.
