El mágico relato de nuestros orígenes es probablemente el que más fascinación ha inspirado en la humanidad a lo largo de los tiempos. Pero, más allá de los cuarenta versículos que la Biblia dedica a Adán y Eva, más allá incluso de la leyenda, ¿cómo sería la vida de aquella inocente, valiente y conmovedora primera pareja? ¿Cómo sería aquel universo primigenio? ¿Cuál fue el impulso que motivó a que Eva tomara la manzana prohibida? ¿Y qué pensamientos le pasaron por la cabeza a ambos una vez que comprendieron las consecuencias de lo que Eva acababa de hacer?
Waslala : memorial del futuro : [la búsqueda de una civilización perdida] by Gioconda Belli( Book )
42 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Belli typically combines fact and fiction in her novels. This futuristic novel may have the fortune of Fuentes' Terra nostra: a great failed attempt at an epic. Here, Belli experiments with the style of a roman à clef since the protagonists, Don José and Doña María, are based on the canonical poet José Coronel Urtecho and his wife, María Kautz. Toxic waste combined with smugglers, drugs, civil wars, and the magic realism of the mythical Waslala (naturally founded by poets) provide the setting for Belli's utopian message. The love between the journalist Rafael and the beautiful Melissandra, and the adventures that ensue, will appeal to a global audience"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
Sofía de los presagios by Gioconda Belli( Book )
58 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
At the age of seven, little Sofia gets lost during a violent argument between her parents and is ousted from the gypsies. Even though destiny affords her other caring parents and a new start, she confronts many painful situations, including Rene, the overbearing patriarch, who confines her and takes away her freedom. Protected by centuries of wisdom, Sofia's gypsy blood and rebelliousness prevail through rituals and ancient ceremonies, which transport her back to her true origins and, finally, unite her with the love of her life. Sofia of the Omens invites us to enter into a magical world, created by one of the most important authors of our time. As in The Inhabited Woman, Gioconda Belli develops a fascinating female character, guided by her natural instincts, who is defined as the epicenter of a literary universe brimming with sensuality, eroticism and femininity
