Carlos FuentesMargarita, está linda la mar es la síntesis que un gran escritor logra entre la tragedia y la grandeza de un país al que ama hasta el punto de convertirlo en pura literatura.
—El País (Madrid)
"As he did in Castigo divino (1988), the great Nicaraguan novelist is fascinatingly concerned with creating a cultural context as well as recovering the intellectual templates of Central American mentalities. In 1907, when Darâio purportedly writes 'Margarita, the sea is beautiful' on a little girl's fan, and 1956, where a gathering of inexperienced, romantic intellectuals also plots to kill Anastasio Somoza, are the poles of this prize-winning novel. In between, Ramâirez subtly weaves a national master narrative that, by emphasizing the humanity rather than the myths that have sustained it, shows readers the hidden side of public figures. He manages to give a modernista, musical tinge to his language, thereby doubling the readers' attempts at deciphering its message. Fifteen years in the making, Margarita, estâa linda la mar is a masterpiece"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
