El viajero del siglo

Debe ser porque el sexo es lo que menos tiene que ver con aquello de las ideas, las palabras escritas o habladas, son como los polos opuestos, el sexo a anxres lado las ideas en el otro extremo. So, you will not miss the pleasure of enjoying this work of art. Hans may be change himself or the introducer of thoughts that undermine the restrictive norm.

Complex, multi-layered and a novel which would repay re-reading. Most of the book is taken up by conversation, but Neuman does not differentiate conversationalists with line breaks. Pages with related products. It moves slowly, leisurely, like a piece of classical music, a long piano sonata.

Then you turn to the rest of dl novel and realize the answers are nobody, nowhere, and nothing. Cuando la historia se consentraba en Hans, el protagonista, con sus interacciones con el Horganillero, un personaje de peso, y Alvaro, otro importante personaje, era cuando me sentia a gusto leyendo.

It is in these discussions that the book is more than viajfro a rereading of German romantic thought, but rediscovery of the same problems that they tried to address and which have yet to be settled.


Ambientada en Alemania de mediados dela novela cuenta la historia de un traductor errante que se enamora de un pueblo y de una residente, mientras en paralelo desarrolla interesantes amistades con otros habitantes. Those reservations aside, however, Traveler of the Century is a great novel. In tegenstelling tot de echte 19de eeuwse romans wordt hier aan het eind niet alles opgelost.

Traveler of the Century (El viajero del siglo) by Andrés Neuman – A Review

de That said my interest remained only with the barrel organist and his dog. While the novel was written between andthe questions have taken on even more weight in light of the financial crisis that has exposed even more points of contention between the countries of Europe.

All this whining serves to show I had high hopes for the novel and they were not met. Many of these discussions are wonderful though require a daunting knowledge of European history and literature and were propulsive enough to carry me through many pages.

During the salon Hans, Sophie, an older professor named Mietter, a Spanish expat Alvaro, and several towns people discuss everything from the European union under Napoleon, the value of religion, which forms of government are best, dek the merits of classicism versus romanticism. Wandernburg exists in shifting form.
