    One of the giants of Latin American literature, Ernesto S bato 1911 2011 lived most of his life in Buenos Aires, Argentina and periodically committed his own manuscripts to the flames, noting in one interview with wry satisfaction how fire is purifying Fortunately, in addition to many essays, three of his novels survive Before commenting on The Tunnel , his first novel written in 1948, some observations on his other two On Heroes and Tombs , S bato s dark, brooding 500 pager includes an entire hallucinogenic, mindbending section, Report on Blind People The novel also features young Martin and the object of his obsessive love, Alejandra, a reclusive young lady who deals with serious bouts of madness With every page turned, a reader is led ever further down murky, winding corridors of memory and imagination Not an easy read And S bato s second full length novel, The Angel of Darkness is even darker and brooding, where S bato himself takes on the role of main character and first person narrator In one outlandish scene, S bato has a nightmare where he shows up on his wedding day as groom wearing only his underwear, marrying a television celebrity with blind Jorge Luis Borge...

    Sabato s The Tunnel 1948 resembles Camus The Stranger 1942 , for both are spare, short novels featuring murderer protagonists as first person narrators, men who are profoundly alienated not only from their societies but also from any meaningful personal relationship But the two protagonists are very different from each other too Camus hero Meursault, a shipping clerk, is an unimaginative man alienated from his own emotions Sabato s hero Castel, a well known painter, experiences his emotions intensely but projects them all onto a woman, the only woman he believes who can ever fully understand him Meursault s alienation leads to a murder of indifference, Sabato s to a murder of obsession.The reader watches in growing frustration and horror as Castel poisons what might have been a brief, sweet dalliance with a married woman who notices something in one of his paintings he believed only he and his ideal woman could ever see His relentless, all consuming hunger for her absolute devotion devours each romantic encounter, draining i...

    It was just about the stroke of dawn, lilacs started to bloom, the birds were singing along, the orchestra was about to embark on, I got up early and decided to plunge myself in books, I d a few options The Tunnel, Beauty and Sadness, and Requiem A hallucination, I chose The Tunnel, for from excerpts of the book, it occurred to be an existential tale of an account of relationship of an artist Juan Pablo Castel with Maria Iribarne whom he murdered, I was listening to Shine on your crazy Diamond by Pink Floyd, the starting lines It should be sufficient to say that I am Juan Pablo Castel, the painter who killed Maria Iribarne I imagine that the trial is still in everyone s mind and that no further information about myself is necessary with the music of Pink Floyd were creating enthralling atmosphere which caught me off guard to observe that how effortlessly the author has used simplicity to convey the most profound and honest conviction by narrator, that was the very first glimpse of finesse, of the author, which only gets amplified in subsequent pages It s about recollection of actions of Castel from a prison cell, however it s neither an apology for the actions which his insanity caused him to do, nor is it a rational explanation of them Juan Pablo Ca...

    Just as Opaque the Second Time RoundIn The Tunnel, Ernesto Sabato has a mysogonistic, puerile, obsessive, apparently psychopathic murderer tell the reader his every thought about a folie a deux with his victim and its rationale My first time through The Tunnel left me bewildered Of what literary rather than ideological merit is this work For whose edification or amusement is it meant My original conclusion It s a difficult book to be interested in much less like But I picked up on a hint by another GR reader and found that Sabato was a scientist before he was a writer and had incorporated quantum physics in The Tunnel as a sort of hidden metaphor Indeed there is a short book by Halpern and Carpenter which outlines the way in which the metaphor is meant to work at key points in the book This led me back into The Tunnel for another look Halpern and Carpenter suggest that Sabato followed Borges in his interest in the labyrinthine character of history through which the world changes direction at critical nodes They also point out Borges allusions to alternative and even parallel universes that were of interest to Sabato They contend that Sabato builds on these Borgian tropes to create scenes of discontinuous time in his story.Maybe so But I find the argument of Halpern and Carpenter to be somewhat tendentious But even stipulating their ...

    Que maravillosa pieza de literatura Nunca pens que El T nel tuviera este efecto en mi, la escritura de Sabato es como ninguna otra angustiosa, deprimente, ilustrativa y engatusadora a partes iguales El personaje de Castel ciertamente tiene problemas psicologicos muy marcados no soy psic loga pero puede ser TOC y episodios de neurosis que lo llevan a sobre analizar todo y crear escenarios hipot ticos que s lo contribuyen a convertirlo en un monstruo lleno de celos enfermizos, deprimido y finalmente un asesino Durante toda la lectura dec a que hombre tan incre blemente loco pero no puedo parar de leerlo porque me encanta jaja ya saben todos que disfruto mucho de un buen protagonista con problemas Este es un libro que lo empiezas ...
