Om forfatteren

Julio Cortazar is an Argentine poet, short story writer, and translator, whose pseudonym is Julio Denis. He was born in Brussels, Belgium, in 1914. In 1918, he moved with his parents to their native Argentina. He taught high school and later French literature at the University of Cuyo, resigning vis mere after participating in demonstrations against Argentine President Juan Peron. He worked for a Buenos Aires publishing company and also earned a degree as a translator. Cortazar is part of the "boom" of excellence in Latin American letters in the 1950s and 1960s. He combines fantastic plots with commonplace events and characters, and looks for new ways for literature to represent life. His first novel, The Winners, tells the story of passengers on a luxury liner who are restricted to a certain area of the ship and forbidden to communicate with the crew. He explores the ways passengers react. Hopscotch has a complex narrative structure with 165 chapters that can be read in at least two logical sequences to create variations. A Change of Light and Other Stories is a short story collection dealing with themes ranging from political oppression to fantasy. We Love Glenda So Much is about a fan club murder of their favorite actress whose films do not meet their standards. A Certain Lucas is comprised of three sections of short observations, discussing the nature of reality, the exploration of literary form, and search for new ways to view the world.

He escrito estos puntos sobre los cuentos de Final del juego:
- Cada cuento te llega al corazón.
- Cortazar prefiere la sencillez.
- Los cuentos son para disfrutar y entender.
- Siempre te hacen sentir algo.
- Describen el ambiente y los personajes de forma clara.
- Solo necesitan unos pocos detalles.

En definitiva, lee despacio y reflexiona sobre ellos.

I read Hopscotch many years ago and loved it, but for some reason didn’t pick up anymore Cortazar until now.

I remember not so much about Hopscotch but this book jogged my memory a bit- my favorite stories in this collection were definitely the more realistic ones (Blow Up, End of the Game, The Pursuer) where Cortazar’s formal experiments can really shine. In the more surreal/ symbolic stories I sometimes lost my foothold, which maybe was the point, but mixing the dream like plot with the shifting narrators and time frames sometimes made it all feel a little muddled.

What made the stories I mentioned above so excellent was the way Cortazar zips around his characters like a ghost possessing, showing the other side of the mirror so to speak. I love how you can feel the improvisation in his language, where he lets his mind just spool out on the page - appropriate for a writer that seemed to have a great love for jazz. The best this book has to offer is a master class in what you can do when you are well practiced and the ideas are flowing.

Hopscotch could irritate more than it impresses because it lacks any narrative action, yielding characters or merely voices—very articulate voices, to be sure. It is the epitome of what a modern anti-novel is not. When one is informed that the first half can "be read in a normal fashion" but the second must be read in the numerical chapter order 73-1-2-116-etc. concluding with 131, one can begin to question the work's aesthetic validity. Such a technique (pagination) was unsuccessfully employed in a French novel a few years ago. The first section of the jumbled 560 pages, to put it simply, is about Horacio Oliveira, who is described as "a conscious bum"," during his stay in Paris.

He is living with one La Maga and sitting around drinking and talking—about jazz, painters, empirical ontology, illusion, time, identity, the Sartrean bit, or what he calls the ""giddy discontinuity of existence."" He returned to Argentina in the second section, met up with a couple known as the Travelers, and went to work with them in a mental health facility where they played hopscotch in a courtyard. The final section, which the author kindly calls the "Expendable Chapters," is a back-and-forth between the two universes interspersed with quotes, letters, notes, and other such materials. Cortazar's extraordinary versatility as a language artist allows him to express a wide range of concepts, recollections, and supporting associations. The richness of the cultural allusions makes one think of William Gaddis' recognitions. Then there's wordplay in Spanish, French, and occasionally a tongue that not even pig Latin can match. Since nothing has any reality, we have to start ex nihil."" Having started ex-nihil, one goes nowhere. But it can be fun to relax and enjoy the play of language in this postmodern classic.
