JAVIER MARIAS VIDAS ESCRITAS PDF

Un libro encantador. De hecho, muchas de estas "vidas escritas" comienzan con una paradoja. Marias holds a cigarette, that is nearly burned out, between the index and middle fingers of his left hand--if he holds it for much longer, he'll burn his fingers, but perhaps he's too intent on the viewer to really care. That burn would also match well with what looks like an insect bite on the back of his hand. However, it's doubtful that he would care about that, either, since he seems to be wearing the kind of clothes worn by a man who wears the same kind of clothes every day: white shirt, neat but not overly well cared for, and a dark blazer. His left eye squints at us, while his right is slightly more open, and his mouth is held in such a manner as to suggest that he is investigating us intently.

We acknowledge and remind and warn you that they may, in fact, be entirely unrepresentative of the actual reviews by any other measure. The complete review 's Review :. Written Lives consists almost entirely of brief pieces that summarise the lives of twenty-six more or less well-known authors. They're not intended as straight biography, but Marias' approach is only slightly playful: as he explains in his Prologue, what he tries to do is "treat these well-known literary figures as if they were fictional characters".

Sticking to the facts, with only some embellishment of some episodes and anecdotes, it doesn't come across as entirely convincing: they're solid and well-written little portraits, but most of the figures are perhaps too familiar and the portraits not skewed enough to convince of the necessity of such a collection.

Others are treated more gently, if no less irreverently. The focus on the very human sides and failings of these authors makes for fairly entertaining reading. Not surprisingly, it is the pieces on some of the less well-known authors, such as Lampedusa that seem the most rewarding.

In addition to the writers' lives, there is one longer piece, 'Perfect Artists', in which Marias describes his collection of postcards of authors' portraits photographs, paintings, and deathmasks.

He offers brief, amusing commentary to go along with the reproductions of three dozen or so pictures, an interesting mini-survey of the author-image and, particularly, how various authors wanted to be seen. Written Lives is an enjoyable little exercise that perhaps doesn't work to best effect for English-speaking audiences because of the subject-matter, not the language.
