More About This Book

Overview

Esta novela cuenta la historia de una mujer indomable, un espíritu rebelde. Destinada a crecer como la rica heredera de un magnate de la industria textil, desde pequeña supo que era diferente, que su capacidad de ver lo que otros no veían, de conectar con los animales, la convertía en especial. Desafió las convenciones sociales, a sus padres y maestros, y rompió cualquier atadura religiosa o ideológica para conquistar su derecho a ser una mujer libre, personal y artísticamente. Leonora Carrington es hoy una leyenda, la más importante pintora surrealista, y su fascinante vida, el material del que se nutren nuestros sueños.

Fantasiosa y excéntrica en su infancia, desafiante en su adolescencia, Leonora vivió la más turbulenta historia de amor con el pintor Max Ernst. Con él se sumergió en el torbellino del surrealismo, y se codeó en París con Salvador Dalí, Marcel Duchamp, Joan Miró, André Breton o Pablo Picasso; por Max enloqueció cuando fue enviado a un campo de concentración. A Leonora se la confinó en un manicomio de Santander, del que escapó para conquistar Nueva York de la mano de Peggy Guggenheim. Se instaló en México casándose con el poeta y periodista Renato Leduc; aquí culmina una de las obras artísticas y literarias más singulares y geniales.

Elena Poniatowska retrata como nadie a una mujer excepcional.

    Leonora Carrinton

    Esta obra de Poniatowska mas que tenerme de suspiros y corajes es muy buena! Es como lo que uno desearia que un autor pudiese relatar acerca de su vida. Un viaje que te lleva a conocer mas alla de la persona irracional pero a la vez decidida de Leonora! Recuerdas a muchos grandes como lo fueron Diego Rivera, Lewis Carroll entre otros! Tambien tiene contenido de la psicologia. Una historia que te deja entrar en la mente de Leonora y desifrar que atraviesa por su mente tal y como si estuvieras hablando personalmente! Un alma rebelde llamada Leonora Carrington!

    BUENISIMO RELATO DE ELENA PONIATOWSKA!
