    Perhaps the single BEST MEMOIR I ve EVER read this work of art is excruciating There is no doubt that everything that occurred to Arenas happened and that here is testament of how the new wave of Cuban writers, lingering between Batista incited by him and his regime entering into the holocaust that is Communist Cuba by Castro, struggled died This voice was not extinguished, however.Arena s life is full of missteps, amazing accomplishments plenty of sex He s proud of himself, never apologizes His nemesis is not himself most writers are so full of inner demons Arenas is a rock of certainty and is so self aware but Castro Always effenCastro.It is sad t...

    Surprisingly very good It s main message is freedom Freedom from repressive Cuban regime of Fulgencio Batista and the detestable one of Fidel Castro Freedom from the sexual discrimination against gays in the Communist Cuba and this explains the picture that Reinaldo Arenas 1943 1990 that homosexuality in Cuba was rampant The book is full of explicit sex scenes not only of homosexuality but bestiality I suspect that that was intentional in a way that Marquis de Sade 1740 1819 portrayed sex, sadism, murder in his libertine novel The 120 Days of Sodom as a protest against the French government prior to the French Revolution 1789 1799 He wanted to picture Cuba in the mind of the reader as full of homosexuals because homosexual acts were prohibited in Cuba.This biography or memoir is part of the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die so I bought this from .com almost 3 years ago I have been postponing my reading of this book because I thought it would be hard to read considering that Arenas was not an English native...

    he lived a life whose beginning and end were indeed the same from the start, one long, sustained sexual act says Guillermo Cabrera about Arenas life And man oh man, he wasn t kidding There is so much sex in this book It makes me think that everyone in Cuba is a sexhound waiting to pounce on each other, only restrained by social s and or the repressive government and its forced status quo there is so much sex, it s funny In his childhood he s having sex with all these animals and these incidents end up in invariably faux pas hijinx when he talks about how his cousin or someone accidentally kills a chicken, and a whole bunch of his friends fuck a goat Man, that s some crazy sex Also, throughout the book, characters are constantly popping boners, everyone s outward feelings and aggressions, transgressions and character mannerisms are somehow translated back to their sexuality I liked this book, a whole fucking lot But man, it s crazier about sex than Benny Hill I read it a while ago I think he fucked a dog too, i can t remember But hey, you shouldn t get shelved on the idea of this guy as a bestial terrorist, it s nothing like that he s a sexual provocateur, and this s...

    I don t know if this is literature and I certainly didn t read it as if it was skipping around and skimming sections as I do with rock biographies but it feels true to me And Reinaldo Arenas writes about literature as one who loves it above all certainly above politics Not for him any alignment with Left or Right , and I agree completely, when the so called Left can behave as the leaders of Cuba did during the period that Arenas writes about here Not only that, but when supporters of Castro and the Left worldwide also participate in this repression.One of the most notorious examples of intellectual injustice in this century is Jorge Luis Borges, who was systematically denied the Nobel Prize simply because of his political views Borges is one of the most important Latin American writers of this century, perhaps the most important one however, the Nobel Prize was given to Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the pastiche of Faulkner, personal friend of Castro s, and born opportunist His work, although not without merit, is permeated with cheap populism, and is not at the level of some other great writers who have either died in oblivion or been ignored.Sounds harsh Not when you consider that Marquez ch...

    Reinaldo Arenas, con voz de denuncia, narra las vivencias que tuvo naciendo en una dictadura, y viviendo en otra mucho peor Siendo homosexual, y un escritor que no apoya el r gimen ten a muchas razones para ser perseguido y encarcelado por contrarrev...

    Un libro muy duro, autobiogr fico en los ltimos d as del escritor, consciente ya de la muerte que le acontece a cuentagotas, enfermo, resentido del dolor de los a os preso dentro y fuera de una c rcel, perseguido, desolado, desconfiando y traicionado por a...

    Es la primera vez que tengo la oportunidad de leer un libro autobiogr fico y debo decir que fue sumamente impactante Las condiciones desdichadas a las que Arenas se ve expuesto son meramente reflejos de las ataduras de una sociedad reprimida Obligado a renegar sus ideolog as y preferencias sexuales, ste encuentra refugio en la escritura Plasma su postura anticastrista y las penurias por las que, no solo l, sino un sin n mero de cubanos, se ven afectados Marcando as un hito en la literatura latinoamericana La historia es sumamente admirable, aunque debo decir que hubo momentos en los que me result un tanto tedioso continuar la lectura, pero ya en las etapas finales de la misma se me hizo imposible despegarme Me pareci muy interesante las cr ticas que hizo no solo al gobierno de Castro, algo un tanto ir nico cuando lo lean entender n el por qu de ese comentario , sino a muchos escritores latinoamer...

    Ma dopo vent anni di repressione, come avrei potuto stare zitto davanti a quei crimini E inoltre non mi sono mai considerato n di sinistra n di destra, n voglio essere catalogato sotto qualunque etichetta di opportunismo politico Io racconto la mia verit , come un ebreo che abbia sofferto il razzismo o un russo che sia stato in un gulag, come qualunque essere umano che abbia avuto gli occhi per vedere le cose come sono Libro che mi instilla vari dubbi.Dal punto di vista storico politico sicuramente un libro importante, anche se la credibilit viene minata da fanfaronate ed esagerazioni sulla sua vita privata 4000 amanti fino a 24 anni , brani e aneddoti molto numerosi che sembrano vanterie da adolescente, con descrizioni di amplessi fisiologicamente e acrobaticamente impossibili e che alla lunga potrebbero far venire dei dubbi sulla veridicit di alcune vicende raccontate anche se non riguardanti la vita privata dell autore.In una biografia, e in un uomo, tutto partecipa a stabilirne la credibilit e queste parti sono importanti per capire l uomo in questione.Nulla importa che siano storie omosessuali Sarebbe lo stesso se fossero eterosessuali.Le esagerazioni di stampo machista quindi possono influire sulla percezione della verit.Strano anche c...

    Il coraggio una follia piena di grandezza Quando Reinaldo Arenas inizi a scrivere la sua autobiografia era ancora giovane, era ancora a Cuba, la pi florida e per questo potente, pericolosa manifestazione della vita e della vitalit , cos nemica ai regimi Scriveva nei boschi, di nascosto, con il sole unico complice ogni giorno si affrettava a terminare, prima che arrivasse la notte.Quando Reinaldo Arenas termin la sua autobiografia era non di molto pi vecchio, malato di AIDS, in esilio Un altra notte minacciava di giungere, la morte Eppure, combattente fino all ultimo, mentre la sua sfacciata fortuna, che innumerevoli volte l aveva salvato, scivolava via, fu per sua stessa mano che mor , sottraendosi a chiunque e qualunque cosa avesse tentato di decidere della sua vita.Nella sua autobiografia, che ripercorre una vita umile eppure pulsante, energica, instancabile, che non si piega mai, Arenas intreccia gli affetti e le passioni e i tormenti gli uomini che l Isola ha offerto al suo desiderio insaziabile pi di cinquemila, proclama la passione della scrittura, soffocata dal regime, tradita dagli amici scrittori ipocriti, mai ripagata dagli editori stranieri i regimi, prima quello di Batista, poi quello di Castro, e quella brevissima, di una illusoria felicit , parentesi rivoluzionaria cui aveva pure aderito, salvo indovinare ben presto il colore dell operazione condotta dal lider maximo L a omosessuale , la scrittura, la politica sono le tre passioni di Ar...
