Download E-books Lisboa. Un melodrama PDF

By Leopoldo Brizuela

Lisboa, noviembre de 1942. Portugal recibe un ultimátum para entrar en l. a. guerra. El terror a los angeles ocupación nazi o al bombardeo aliado se adueña de Lisboa. En ese contexto, el cónsul de otro país impartial, los angeles Argentina, atrae los angeles atención al anunciar sorpresivamente l. a. donación de un cargamento de cereales, cuyo destinatario concreto no revelará hasta que el gobierno, cada vez más receloso, autorice el desembarco de l. a. carga.

En una sola y larguísima noche, mientras miles de refugiados de toda Europa esperan l. a. partida del barco Boa Esperança para ponerse a salvo de los nazis, los angeles gesta del cónsul argentino es el cedazo en que se entrecruzan, como en un folletín, las "historias más secretas" de un período único en los angeles historia. El propio cónsul, l. a. mítica pareja de Tania y Armando Discépolo, l. a. cantante de fados Amália, y el misterioso Ricardo De Sanctis, que asegura ser banquero y "refugiado personal" del Cardenal de Lisboa.

Erizada de sentimientos, emociones y pasiones, excesiva como todo melodrama, prodigiosa en l. a. creación de climas e intensamente atractiva en las confesiones que los personajes intercambian, Lisboa tiene los angeles precisión arquitectónica de una ambiciosa pieza teatral y musical, en los angeles que del coro multitudinario emergen los solistas para hacer oír sus deseos y padecimientos.

La crítica ha dicho...

«Me parece que Lisboa. Un melodrama, además también de una investigación amorosa, es el tipo de novela que se está obligado a escribir si se quiere ser un novelista de verdad.»
J. Ernesto Ayala-Dip, El País

«Como una suerte de Pirandello contemporáneo de los angeles narrativa argentina, en el teatro que monta Brizuela los seres están desnudos. Algunos actores engañosamente secundarios tienen sus momentos de gloria, como el secretario del consulado y su patética mujercita (Ordónez y Sofía), el maestro de canto de Carlos Gardel, Eugénio de Oliveira, y un joven, Ricardo de Sanctis, que asegura ser "refugiado" own del cardenal de Lisboa, entre tantos otros dentro un elenco inusual para las novelas de estos tiempos.»
