See Now Then

In See Now Then, the bright and evocative new novel from Jamaica Kincaid—her first in ten years—a marriage is printed in all its joys and agonies. This piercing exam of the manifold ways that the passing of time operates at the human attention unfolds gracefully, and Kincaid inhabits each one of her characters—a mom, a father, and their kids, residing in a small village in New England—as they stream, of their personal minds, among the current, the earlier, and the long run: for, as she writes, "the current might be now then and the earlier is now then and the longer term may be a now then.

Ema, la cautiva

Ema, l. a. cautiva es quizá los angeles más reconocida novela de César Aira y los angeles primera de toda su obra que se publicó en España.

Ameno lector, hay que ser pringlense, y pertenecer al Comité del Significante, para saber que una contratapa es una «tapa en contra». Sin ir más lejos, yo lo sé. Pero por alguna razón me veo frívolamente obligado a contarte cómo se me ocurrió esta historiola. l. a. ocasión es propicia para las confidencias: una linda mañana de primavera, en el Pumper Nic de Flores, donde suelo venir a pensar. Tomasito (dos años) juega entre las mesas colmadas de colegiales de incógnito. Reina los angeles desocupación, el tiempo sobra.

Hace unos años yo period muy pobre, y ganaba lo necesario para analista y vacaciones traduciendo, gracias a l. a. bondad de un editor amigo, largas novelas de esas llamadas «góticas», odiseas de mujeres, ya inglesas, ya californianas, que trasladan sus morondangas de siempre por mares himenópticos, maresde té pasional. Las disfrutaba, por supuesto, pero con l. a. práctica llegué a sentir que había demasiadas pasiones, y que cada una anulaba a las demás como un desodorizante de ambientes. Fue todo pensarlo y concebir l. a. thought, atlética si las hay, de escribir una «gótica» simplificada. Manos a l. a. obra. Soy de decisiones imaginarias rápidas. El Eterno Retorno fue mi recurso. Abjuré del Ser: me volví Sei Shonagon, Sherezada, más los animales. Las «anécdotas del destino». Durante varias semanas me distraje. Sudé un poco. Me reí. Y al terminar resultó que Ema, mi pequeña yo mismo, había creado para mí una pasión nueva, los angeles pasión por l. a. que pueden cambiarse todas las otras como el dinero se cambia por todas las cosas: l. a. indiferencia. ¿Qué más pedir?

La crítica ha dicho. ..
«César Aira es hoy por hoy uno de los autores más inclasificables de los angeles narrativa hispanoamericana. Inclasificable por su originalidad, por su brillantez, por su sabiduría en el oficio de narrar en el que mezcla humor, imaginería desbordante y agudas reflexiones. »

Sample text

J. C. Fenton suggests that if “the catch of fish is a symbol of the evangelistic mission of the disciples, the meal seems to be in some sense a symbol of the Eucharist” (209). One other prominent occurrence of fish in the gospels is in the story in which Jesus feeds a multitude with five loaves and two fishes. This story appears in all four gospels (Matthew 14:14–21; Mark 6:34–44; Luke 9:12–17; John 6:1–14) with a second telling appearing in two of the gospels, with seven loaves and a few fish (Matthew 15:32–38 and Mark 8:1–9).

This decay left Emerson seeking for an original relation to the universe, a project that was identical with seeking a direct communion with God; the transcendentalists’ hunger for Reality was a hunger for God. This desire for direct communion resurfaces a century later in flyfishing literature, as writer-anglers attempt to forge a direct knowledge of themselves, transcendent truth, and nature. Where the British were viewing nature as an adversary, Emerson had made nature a moral teacher and the most effective means by which man could be educated; he had suggested that the end of man’s relationship with nature was an improvement of character, that character and being joined into one.

When I caught a seventeen-and-a-half-inch striper below the spillway of a nearby lake, it didn’t bother me that the fish was illegal by half an inch. I knew that I could bluff my way out of the situation should the Conservation Department make an appearance, but perhaps more to the point, I knew that such a fish, although not all that impressive by striper standards, would be sufficient to amaze and delight my wife and, most important, my kids. This fish had the misfortune of latching onto a chartreuse grub I had been dragging along the bottom for a couple of hours at the end of a number of consecutive Saturdays when I had caught exactly nothing.
