Sobre el duelo / About Mourning

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Una conmovedora reflexion acerca del duelo por la muerte de su padre de la mano de la mundialmente aclamada autora de Todos deberiamos ser feministas. En este emotivo y poderoso ensayo, que nace de un articulo publicado en The New Yorker, la autora nigeriana pone palabras al inenarrable grado de dolor causado por la repentina muerte de su padre en Nigeria: la crisis sanitaria por la pandemia de COVID-19 impidio que la autora pudiese salir de Estados Unidos para reunirse con su familia. En un intento por encontrar consuelo ante la sensacion de vacio que la sacudio hasta la medula, Sobre el duelo es una breve pero inteligente y conmovedora cronica autobiografica de las primeras etapas de la gestion de la perdida, un revelador examen de la naturaleza del dolor, un tributo al padre que la llamaba nwoke neli ( la que equivale a muchos hombres ) y una profunda reflexion sobre la lengua y las tradiciones igbo. Este libro se enmarca en la mas rabiosa y dolorosa actualidad: la autora escribe desde la certeza de ser solo una mas de entre los millones de personas en duelo, sobre las dimensiones culturales y familiares del mismo y, tambien, sobre la soledad y la ira inherentes a el. Sobre el duelo es un libro imprescindible para estos momentos. Y, sin embargo, resultara atemporal, duradero, y una adicion indispensable al canon de la autora. En el mismo formato que Todos deberiamos ser feministas, el lector lo atesorara y compartira mas que nunca. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Written by the internationally acclaimed author of We should all be feminists, it is a moving reflection about her mourning the death of her father. In this touching and powerful essay, born from an article previously published by The New Yorker, the Nigerian author puts into words the unspeakable pain caused by the sudden death of her father in Nigeria. The sanitary crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic prevented the author from leaving the States to join her family. In an attempt to cope with the feelings of emptiness that shattered her to the core, About mourning is a brief, yet intelligent and moving autobiographical chronicle of how she first managed her loss, a revealing examination of the nature of pain, a tribute to her father, who called her nwoke neli ( one deserving many names ) and a deep reflection on the Igbo language and traditions. This book is framed in the most raging and painful actuality. The author writes from the certainty of being just another mourner among millions, she writes about the cultural and family dimensions of mourning, and also about the loneliness and the inherent anger that comes with it. It is imperative to read About mourning in this day and age. However, it will resound as timeless, everlasting, and an essential addition to the author’s canon. In the same format as We should all be feminists, the reader will treasure and cherish it more than ever.
