    One thought on “El Cuarto Mundo”

    1. Diamela Eltit writes:When I turned twelve I had my first sexual encounter. Transmuted by the ancestral force of passion, I was on the verge of consummating the act, but I didn’t know then if I was being liberated to experience glory or to experience punishment, for all I wanted was to go further – I had to go much further – until I could fuse hesitation with acceleration, disorder with precision, in the sacred flesh.It happened on a street. The sky was darkened with clouds. I was walking a [...]

    2. Read the brilliant translation by Dick Gerdes, leaving the piece intact while masterfully creating new word play. The fourth world is evocative and cyclical, creating new branches(and new cycles) in its character development as the work lengthens. The plot itself is unique in its ability to disturb expectations, get under the readers fingernails and ultimately point at something larger than itself.

    3. Eltit's novel (which I read in the English translation, not the edition listed here) is truly disturbing-- the sort of novel about trauma that also runs the risk of traumatizing its readers on some level. I don't offer this as a criticism so much as a polite warning: sensitive readers probably will not take well to Eltit's brazen confrontations with virtually every sexual taboo imaginable. Her characters' encounters with sexual violence are also relentless and somewhat indiscriminant.Her novel, [...]

    4. On one hand, Diamela Eltit's short novel is an account of an incredibly f*cked up family -- a mother with suicidal fantasies, a father who is most aroused by his wife when she is weak and/or physically ill, and two twins, a boy a a girl, who at about the age of fourteen conceive a child together. If this sounds a bit like a parody of the Buendía family in Gabriel Garcia Márquez's Hundred Years of Solitude, well, it's probably no coincidence: Like every writer in Latin America who has the misfo [...]

    5. Sólo por el Club de Lectura, nada másTrato de entenderlo y sigo sin conseguirlo.Es el primer libro que leo de Eltit, y sin duda creo que es una muy buena escritora, pero eso no quita que haya terminado el libro a pura fuerza de voluntad.Si sólo se trataba de una historia retorcida abandonada a los placeres carnales o una crítica a la sociedad que se deja absorber por una u otra idea nueva, aún no lo entiendo.Lo único que me quedó claro es que no me gustan las historias con relaciones amor [...]

    6. Uno de los libros más estresantes que hé leído en mi corta vida. Dos mellizos que parecen depender el uno del otro; alternando entre ataques físicos, ataques psicológicos y amor carnal en el ceno de una familia llena de complejos. La linea narrativa se construye a través de símiles y metáforas viscerales, psicologizantes, animalísticas, surrealistas. La angustia me cogió en la primera página y no me dejo hasta la última. No sé qué decir de este libro a nivel de su calidad. Pensarí [...]

    7. Puedo comprender el prestigio que rodea la obra de Diamela Eltit luego de leer El cuarto mundo. Sus juegos con el lenguaje son verdaderamente ricos para quien pueda apreciarlos. Desgraciadamente yo no me encuentro dentro de ese grupo. Si quiero leer narrativa, escojo novela o cuento. Si quiero leer poemas, me dirijo a ese otro tipo de textos. Una novela que huele a poesía o una poesía que huele a novela no es de mi muy completo agrado, por muy experimental que sea. Reconozco, sin embargo, sus [...]
