Detalhes da Obra
The Years with Laura Díaz de Carlos Fuentes (1999)
Like Fuentes's masterpiece The Death of Artemio Cruz, his epic new novel begins in the state of Veracruz and moves to Mexico City - tracing a migration during the Revolution and its aftermath that was a feature of Mexico's demographic history and is a significant element in Fuentes's fictional world. Now the principal figure is not Artemio Cruz but Fuentes's first major female protagonist, the extraordinary Laura Diaz. Fuentes's richly woven tapestry of her life from 1905 to 1978 - filled with a multitude of witty, heartbreaking scenes and the sounds and colours, tastes and scents of Mexico - shows us this wonderful woman as she grows into a politically committed artist who is also a wife and mother, a lover of great men, and a complicated and alluring heroine whose brave honesty prevails despite losing a brother, son, and grandson to the darkest forces of Mexico's turbulent, often corrupt politics. In the end, Laura D az dies after a life filled with tragedy and loss, but she is a happy woman, for she has borne witness to and helped affect the course of history, and has loved and understood with unflinching honesty.
