    One thought on “Diana: The Goddess Who Hunts Alone”

    1. Uno de los mayores problemas de este libro es que esta muy sobrado, vale, casi no tiene trama el muy mezquino. Muy buenas reflexiones filosóficas, existenciales, políticas y demás. Pero es en verdad algo que llega a ser característico de la prosa de Carlos Fuentes, hace alarde en todos sus libros de un estilo muy adornado, siempre dirigido no en específico a quien tiene un gusto por leer sino a quien aparte de ello tiene determinada formación cultural.Realmente a mi me parece un tanto choc [...]

    2. A lo largo de la vida te topas con mujeres que en un corto lapso de tiempo son capaces de transformar completamente tu forma de ser. Dichas amantes son un violento tornado que entra sin permiso a estremecer tu vida, ponen tus zapatos en el congelador, usan tu guitarra como pata de una mesa, te modifican la forma de hablar, de peinar, de vestir, de comer y hasta de pensar. Mientras tú, felizmente aletargado, te dejas llevar por la furia del tornado sin oponer resistencia alguna. El madrazo llega [...]

    3. Off Fuentes, Jean Seberg'le yaşadığı aşkı en mahrem detaylarına kadar yazmış. Bu açıdan çok rahatsız edici buldum. 1 yıldızdan 3 yıldıza çıkış sebebim edebi dili ve araya sıkıştırdığı sosyo-politik detaylar oldu.

    4. Este libro lo fue todo.Religión.Nos atrevemos, contra toda lógica, a darle lógica a la Divinidad. Amor mezclado con grandes dosis de locura.Diana, Diana Soren. Su nombre evocaba esa ambigüedad antiquísima. Diosa nocturna, luna que es metamorfosis, llena un día, menguante al que sigue, uña de plata en el cielo pasado mañana, eclipse y muerte dentro de unas semanas. Sexualidad con matices políticos.La vida sexual en la ciudad de México, a partir de cierto nivel de ingresos (todo aquí lo [...]

    5. Carlos Fuentes is perhaps Mexico's most celebrated writer and a voice of the people. From poetry to stories and essays, and a dozen novels, he writes of the passions and politics of a nation perpetually in turmoil. He even served as Ambassador to Paris, a time he eludes to fondly, before returning to Mexico City.His novel, "The Death of Artemio Cruz" [1962] is the best known of the translated fictions, and a powerful portrayal of a powerful, and largely corrupt, man on his deathbed as he imagine [...]

    6. 1968: Der 40-jährige Autor und Don Juan Fuentes lernt die Stil-Ikone Jean Seberg kennen und eine Liebesaffäre beginnt. Fast 30 Jahre später beschreibt er das Scheitern der zweimonatigen Beziehung, die von Anfang an keine Zukunft hatte.Ich habe DIANA mehrfach begonnen und leider immer wieder nach wenigen Seiten aus der Hand gelegt. Es ist eine sonderbare Mischung aus tiefsinnigen Reflexionen über Religion, Schriftstellerei und Politik und freizügig geschilderten Szenen aus dem lebenswütigen [...]

    7. La verdad es que había tenido mis diferencias anteriormente con Fuentes y había optado por dejar de leer sus novelas. Pero creo que esta novela llega en un momento crítico y me abre las puertas y tengo ahora si la oportunidad de valorar a este gran intelectual mexicano.Comienzo diciendo que Carlos Fuentes logra en esta pequeña novela, reunir todos los elementos que lo caracterizan como uno de los escritores mexicano más importantes a nivel internacional. Su libro además de ser una historia [...]

    8. Carlos Fuentes es, sin duda, un gran escritor. Aunque aún no he encontrado una novela suya que me haya dejado atónito. Lo cierto es que tiene una forma de narrar que atrapa. Esta novela sólo es un recuerdo que tiene Fuentes, de una actriz hollywoodense que se tiró en los 70. Es una novela sin pena ni gloria, vaya, puede uno vivir sin leerla.

    9. I love Carlos Fuentes, but since this is based on a real relationship that he seems to have been bitter about, I felt like it was a one sided, and he was abusing his power of getting published. It made me feel uncomfortable.

    10. Je l’ai acheté pour son titre, et parce que la photo choisie pour la couverture m’avait plue. Je peux acheter un livre pour sa couverture, comme un album pour sa pochette, une bouteille pour son étiquette, comme embrasser un homme pour une lumière dans son regard. Qu’y a t-il à l’intérieur ? Le flacon importe, et tant mieux si l’on y trouve l’ivresse. Cette couverture a attiré mon oeil et j’ai acheté le livre, sans connaître l’auteur. Cette posture à la fois mutine et la [...]

    11. By far my favorite Fuentes that I have either read or skimmed. Opens with a powerful, tortured treatise on the nature of God, with a capital G. Which leads to an equally well-rendered evocation of romance and literary showmanship with the titular Diana. Then slowly veers along in this same general direction of literary and filmic life and love for what may as well be the rest of the novel. Often it feels like the narrator circles around the issue, rather than properly elaborate on his and Diana' [...]

    12. It is true that you have to wade through an awful lot of philosophizing about love and death during the course of this novel, as the previous reviewer said. However, to judge it negatively for that is a subjective judgment (as is my judging it positively). In general, not a lot happens during the course of this novel, and yet I personally found myself rather emotionally gripped. There is also a decent amount of "philosophizing" dedicated to race, class, and politics. In most instances, that comb [...]

    13. Ultimately this book didn't live up the the writing of Fuentes as I expected. Things didn't become interesting until the dinner party around page 125. Before that came too much needless, pointless (from the point of view of an atheist, anyway) talk of God. The novel was about adultery, after all. And I have no idea why it was called "Diana: the goddess who hunts alone". Diana Soren was in no way the Diana of mythology, whom I visualize as the ultimate self-sufficient woman, head on straight, dow [...]

    14. This is a tale of a brief, but intense, affair between a writer, closely modeled on Fuentes himself, and an American actress, Diana Soren, also based on a real life lover of Fuentes. It is not Fuentes' best literature. Includes a surprising amount of the author's philosophy and political views, some of which distract from the plot. At times, Fuentes tried too hard to get his views across; this book was written in 1993 and has copious commentary about the upheavals of 1968, especially Mexico’s [...]

    15. "Aflându-ne amândoi în mijlocul ebuliţiei unui platou cinematografic, izolaţi în intimitatea cabinei pe roţi, ne dedam lacomi amorului imperios, fără limite al Dianei acoperite de creme, dar cerând să fie folosită, foloseşte-mă, îmi spunea, consumă-mă, vreau să mă uzezi tu; aveam simţul măsurii suficient de rafinat ca să nu trec de la uz la abuz? Ea nu mă lăsa să îmi dau seama. Nu cunoscusem o femeie care să ceară aşa mult ca ea, dar care să se şi dăruie atâta, [...]

    16. 1 ay, 3 hafta, 4 günlük bir yasak ilişkiyi anlatıyor bu roman. kahraman yazarın kendisi, aşık olduğu kadın ise "a bout de souffle" filminden tanıdığımız gazete satan saçları kısacık güzel kız. meksika'da bir Hollywood filmi çekimi sırasında alevlenen bir aşk; altyapısında kültür farklılıkları, oyunculuk ve yazarlık, Hollywood ve devrimcilik ve daha neler. fuentes'in dili çok keskin; bazen hikayeden koparak hayat görüşü ve tarihli ilgili detaylara giriyor. yin [...]

    17. It's about sex and movie stars and literature and geopolitics, so it's pretty much perfect."He went on to say that there was no more beautiful idea than blowing up the Louvre and telling humanity and all is creations to go to hell--but only so long as it remained an idea, so long as it was never put into practice. Why don't we make clear distinctions between ideas and practice? What makes us turn ideas into practice? Doesn't that inevitably plunge us into failure and despair? Aren't dreams enoug [...]

    18. Inspired to read Carlos Fuentes upon the unfortunate event of his death, I picked up this one, which intrigued me because I hadn't heard of it before; it was based on Fuentes' real-life affair with actress, Jean Seberg; and it clocks in at a manageable couple hundred pages.It's an uneven read, but I liked it, especially Fuentes' asides on politics, religion, history, ethnicity, etc. (The novel begins with this sentence: "No bondage is worse than the hope of happiness.") It is a raggedy, rough, s [...]

    19. …Rip Van Winkle game: what would the old man say if he woke up after sleeping for a hundred years and found himself in the United States of 1970, with one foot on the moon and the other in the jungles of Vietnam?Whenever I think of Styron holed up on his island, I imagine that Melville’s Captain Ahab sailed out to kill not the whale but the ocean, Neptune himself, just as the Belgian imperialists in Conrad’s Heart of Darkness fire their cannon not at a black enemy but at an entire continen [...]

    20. Fuentes turns his real-life life affair with Jean Seberg into a fascinating novel about the depths of passion and, more expansively, a document of an era when the-powers-that-be feared and distrusted the passionate.

    21. Es interesante pensar que esta novela pudo haber sido escrita como una manera de disminuir la culpa que Fuentes pudo tener por aquellas acciones y pensamientos con Diana.Qué mal pensar que esa verdad pudo haberse a la tumba con su autor.

    22. "Peki kim yardımcı olacak bize?" diye sordum. "İktidar değil," dedi tutkuyla. "İster kilisede olsun, ister laik dünyada, elinde güç bulunanlar bize yardım edemez. Yalnızca yoksullar, asiler, toplum dışına itilmişler, çocuklar, âşıklar yalnızca onlar yardımcı olabilir."

    23. interesting read--too many things that tied to things I've been thinking about the last couple of days. hmmm. too much coincidence??

    24. Es un libro autobiográfico en el cual Fuentes plasma su pensamiento. Muy sátiro y inmoral pero se muestra abierto y sin temor a la crítica. Fuentes nos muestra que el escritor es hombre.
