'I am an excellent judge of men and I am sure I will not regret my choice. But it is essential you get to know the company as soon as possible. The post I am offering you is that of General Manager of Jeremias Petrus Ltd.' With all the enthusiasm of a man condemned to be hanged, Larsen takes up his new post. Like the other workers at the shipyard, he routinely goes through the motions. Every so often, his sense of reality is shaken by a tremor of self-deception and then it is possible for him to believe that the yard's glory is not just a thing of the past. Like Faulkner, a writer he greatly admires, with his imaginary county of Yoknapatawpha, Onetti has created his own, starkly real region of Santa Maria. By the end of the novel we know, love and care for all its despairing inhabitants.… (mere)

Larsen, el conocido Larsen de La vida breve, el hombre que "creyó de una manera y ahora sigue creyendo de otra, que no nació para morir sino para ganar e imponerse", regresa a Santa María cinco años después de que el gobernador decidiera expulsarlo, para consumar su venganza. Nada ha cambiado demasiado en esa pequeña ciudad imaginaria, en la que el astillero se levanta con la convicción de un espejismo, y al que Larsen se acerca para, quizás, encontrar en ese futuro promisorio el inicio de su propia salvación. Con un estilo más austero que en sus relatos anteriores pero con la misma prosa destellante, el narrador de Onetti sigue el periplo de Larsen por la fantasmal Santa, María y alcanza, plenamente, el deseo que manifestó alguna vez: "Yo quiero expresar nada más que la aventura del hombre."

Uf. que decir. En mi propósito de llenar claros en mis lecturas avance sobre esta novela, no se si envejeció mal, o yo soy bruto pero no me gustó. Ni me pareció Larsen un personaje Faulkneriano ni siquiera por asomo, ya cansa esto de cada nombre ficticio de una locación de una novela hacerla un Yoknapatawpha, si lo hubiera escrito un poquito después obvio que hubiera sido un Macondo existencial.

En el astillero se cumple la culminación del ciclo de Santa María y de su héroe Larsen. Esta novela presenta la vuelta del protagonista a la misma ciudad que le expulsara de su seno, enfrentando a dos proyectos quiméricos que no supondrán más que ficticios descansos en un descanso equiparable al viaje a las sombra del Ulises homérico.

El equilibrio entre la pureza y la corrupción. El astillero forma parte del ciclo narrativo de Santa María, el espacio mítico de Onetti. En la presente novela, el protagonista regresa a la ciudad que le expulsara de su seno, a un astillero desierto, espacio corroído de depredación y deterioro, alegoría de la condición humana que es o puede ser a la vez la alegoría de un país y un tiempo concretos.

A strange book, a unique story of a derelict shipyard in Puerto Astillero owned by Jeremias Petrus and managed by Larsen with two workers, Galvez and Kunz who are taking inventory and doing maintenance. It is an illusion for all four of them; Petrus pretends to pay them, Larsen pretends to oversee thousands of documents years old, while Galvez and Kunz pretend to take inventory while selling off whatever they can to pay themselves and Larsen. It is a sad story of deceit, betrayal, and grinding poverty. Uruguay deserves to be represented on The 1001 List and this book is sufficient to do it.

An interesting short novel, The Shipyard looks at Larsen, a man who has returned to Santa Maria, changed his name, and is now the (unpaid) manager of Petrus' struggling shipyard. Why is it struggling? WE don't know exactly, but there are but 3 employees, no running ships, broken down buildings, rusty machinery (which is being sold on the side in lieu of the 3 employees getting their salaries).

Why has "Larsen" returned? Why did he eave in disgrace? Does he think Mr Petrus will suddenly get--what, a government infusion of money? Does he hope to marry Petrus' weak-minded daughter Angelica Ines before that infusion comes?

And Galvez and Kunz, the other 2 employees (also not paid)--what do they think they will gain? How did they end up here?

There is a second book to this 2-book series, which apparently explains the happenings before this book. I think I need to get it, as I am horribly curious as to what all is being insinuated and hinted at. I expect that a better knowledge of Uruguayan/Latin American politics would explain a bit of this story--but I don't have it. ( )
