La Vista Desde Castle Rock / The View from Castle Rock

Alice Munro

A traves de estos relatos Alice Munro demuestra que la ficcion tiene mucho que decir acerca de la vida Considerada la obra mas personal de la autora por haberse inspirado en su propia familia, Munro logra fundir a traves de estos relatos los hechos y las leyendas que forman su legado familiar. Ofrece una version ambivalente y con matices ficticios de su propio pasado: desde sus ancestros de Castle Rock en el siglo XVIII hasta la ambicion frustrada de sus padres en el Canada de los cincuenta. Desde la experiencia de unos inmigrantes escoceses, quienes no tardan en descubrir que la vida en la tierra sonada no sera la de un cuento de hadas, hasta el dia a dia de la rural Ontario, La vista desde Castle Rock nos habla de esperanza, adversidades e incertidumbres. La critica ha dicho… Una obra rara y fascinante en la que el pasado solo tiene sentido en relacion al presente, y el presente solo tiene sentido enrelacion al pasado. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Alice Munro mines her rich family background, melding it with her own experiences and the transforming power of her brilliant imagination, to create perhaps her most powerful and personal collection yet. A young boy, taken to Edinburgh’s Castle Rock to look across the sea to America, catches a glimpse of his father’s dream. Scottish immigrants experience love and loss on a journey that leads them to rural Ontario. Wives, mothers, fathers, and children move through uncertainty, ambivalence, and contemplation in these stories of hopes, adversity, and wonder. The View from Castle Rock reveals what is most essential in Munro’s art: her compassionate understanding of ordinary lives.
