Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Se ha afirmado que el relato es la forma narrativa por excelencia en la literatura norteamericana actual y que Raymond Carver es el maestro indiscutible en este registro.En cada relato de Catedral se revela la presencia latente o la intrusin de terrores extraordinarios en una existencia ordinaria (Cathleen Medwick). El propio Carver ha escrito: Pienso que es bueno que en un relato haya un leve aire de amenaza... Debe haber tensin, una sensacin de que algo es inminente.Sus personajes son gente de lo ms comn: trabajadores manuales, empleaduchos, parados, parejas a la deriva... desamparados, golpeados por la vida, muchos de ellos bebedores, acceden, a pesar suyo, a una suerte de dimensin heroica, tercos testimonios de una realidad implacable. Su estilo es escueto, lacnico, opera por sustraccin; se ha dicho que Carver inaugura una nueva visin, un nuevo mtodo, una nueva tonalidad. Una de las voces ms originales que han aparecido en la narrativa norteamericana desde hace muchos aos.
