    One thought on “Artemio Cruz'un Ölümü”

    1. You are on your death-bed, suffering from an affliction of uncertain causes, Artemio Cruz. Surrounded by people you dislike, although they are part of your family, you are drifting from dream to reality, from past to present. “Time… will exist only in the reconstruction of isolated memory, in the flight of isolated desire, which will be lost once the chance to live is used up, incarnate in this singular individual that you are, a boy, already a moribund old man…" Your mind is chaotically t [...]

    2. The book’s title is truth in advertising. We are at the deathbed of a man 71 years old. He reminisces about his life and in the process gives us a mini-history of modern Mexico. He also tells us in overly-medical detail about his pains and symptoms. His wife, daughter and son-in-law are usually by his bedside and he despises all of them.Like many men who were in war, in his old age he goes back to those events as the most significant in his life. In Artemio’s case it was episodes during the [...]

    3. carlos fuentes is another one of those latin american writers that makes me hate myself. beyond his tremendous skill as a novelist, he's good looking, well dressed (the world was just cooler when novelists and film directors wore suits), worldly, dashing, daring, and claims to have slept with jean seberg and jeanne moreau. the bastard. and then i came across an article he had written (first three paragraphs below) and now hate him as the series mentioned would probably be my favorite bunch of bo [...]

    4. Θα μπορούσε να είναι ένα μεγάλο ποίημα ή ένα βαθιά φιλοσοφημένο δοκίμιο για τη ζωή. Αντ' αυτού είναι ένας επίλογος. Ένας επιθανάτιος ρόγχος.Εκτιμούμε κάτι, συνήθως, όταν το χάνουμε. Πόσο μάλλον όταν αυτό το κάτι είναι η ίδια μας η ζωή, όπως στην περίπτωση του Αρτέμιο Κρους.Μέσ [...]

    5. It's hard when a good friend recommends a book so highly and you can't come to the party. Artemio Cruz, the great Latin American novel? I can't see it. In synopsis, maybe, it's got everything the genre requires: ex-revolutionary soldier turned landowner through loveless relationship with big man's daughter becomes corrupt politician and media magnate and reflects, on his death-bed, on all the people he's shafted. It's the Citizen Kane of Mexico. But for all that, to me it doesn't have half the p [...]

    6. دوستش داشتم . قلم فوئنتس بی همتاست مرسی دوستم مسلم بابت پیشنهاد این کتاب :) تو وجود داری زندگی خواهی کرد پیکر تو برای خود دلیلی دارد . زندگیت دلیلی دارد . کهکشان ها برای تو روشن می شود و خورشید برای تو می سوزد . تا تو دوست بداری و زندگی کنی و باشی . تا تو به راز پی ببری و بمیری بی آن [...]

    7. Βιβλίο μνημείο, συγγραφικό αριστούργημα. Δεν υπάρχει αίσθηση που να μείνει ανικανοποίητη από την ανάγνωση του. Βαθιά υπόκλιση στην ακούραστη δουλειά της μεταφράστριας Έφης Γιαννοπούλου που κατόρθωσε να κρατήσει σφιχτό, κατανοητό και άμεσο, χωρίς να χάσει ίχνος από την πε [...]

    8. کتاب در مورد تاریخ مکزیک است نه یک مرد. روایتش از طریق زندگی یک مرد است به نام آرتیمو کروز که به سه بخش من (حال)، تو (آینده) و او (گذشته) بازگو می‌شود. بخش «من» آرتیمو کروز در حال مرگ را روایت می‌کند. «تو» همانطور که آینده‌ حالتی انتزاعی در فکر و اندیشه دارد، روایت در هم و سیالی‌س [...]

    9. This novel made a huge impression on me. Read as part of my 1962 reading list, it was the original translation by Sam Hileman, Fuentes's translator throughout the 1960s. Artemio Cruz was a fictional impoverished mulatto. In his teens, he ran away to fight in the Mexican Revolution but later betrayed the ideals of that conflict and through sharp dealing became a wealthy and influential financier.Artemio is dying all the way through the novel, but looking back from his sickbed and through the drea [...]

    10. Βιβλίο που νιώθεις ότι πρέπει να το διαβάσεις τουλάχιστον 2 φορές για να είσαι σε θέση να εκφέρεις γνώμη. Πολύ δύσκολο ανάγνωσμα, εξαιρετικό πυκνό, τα κομμάτια στα οποία ο Αρτέμιο Κρους απευθύνεται στον εαυτό του εν όψει του θανάτου του συγκλονιστικά και αξιοζήλευτης συγγρ [...]

    11. I thought the premise of the story sounded interesting - Artemio Cruz (no relation to that other guy named Cruz) is a corrupt well, everything: politician, soldier, man. He's on his deathbed now, and the story hops around in time to tell his story of each major event of his life, back to the "present" of his deathbed experience. The premise is great, I love the idea of the bouncing around, the storytelling aspect.But the story itself was not always easy to read, and by that I mean the way that s [...]

    12. el estilo de fuentes parece que simplemente no es para mi. tendré que leer "aura" para ver como es en algo más corto, pero en sus novelas largas lo encuentro como desagradablemente enfocado a estilo sobre substancia. además, su prosa no me es agradable, me parece falta de vida, demasiada académica. y, la verdad, encuentro pretencioso la forma en que sin más busca traer "grandes ideas" antes que contar una historiara ser justos el libro tenia buenos momentos. la relación de artemio con su e [...]

    13. #notfanSinceramente, no me gustó. Y sí, entiendo lo que representa para la narrativa latinoamericana esta novela tan moderna. Pero no me gustó. Y creo que si la hubiese leído en la universidad tampoco me gustaría. Me agradó el tema y todo el rollo de contar la vida de Artemio Cruz desde el presente hasta el pasado (como si fuese el final, desarrollo e inicio, como una involución de la vida), pero no me gustó el estilo ni la prosa: es algo muy difuso para mí. Muchos pasajes se me hiciero [...]

    14. I had to read a book for my high school World Literature class and chose to read this book in particular because it seemed to be interesting. I did not know what to expect from this book because it caught me by surprise. The book starts off with a surprise in use of explicitness , the author Carlos Fuentes use rich imagery and other techniques to catch a reader and keep them focused and reading wanting to read on; though the novel is not simple it helps open up your imagination and think about w [...]

    15. The Great Mexican Novel? The Great Novel of the Latin American "Boom" Generation? However you describe La muerte de Artemio Cruz's greatness, you'll need a capital G.The book, which is generally regarded as Carlos Fuentes's best -- I'll resist endorsing that statement now, for I haven't read any other of his fictional works, but I acknowledge it'd be hard to beat -- tells the sinister, obfuscated story of the failure of the Mexican Revolution by way of the sinister, obfuscated character Artemio [...]

    16. Seventy-one-year-old Artemio Cruz is dying. He is a very rich and powerful man, made ruthless, godless and corrupt by his hard childhood and his soldiering during the Mexican revolution during which he had cheated death several times and had done, and suffered, betrayals. After the revolution, through corrupt wheeling and dealing and use of force for self-aggrandizement he became extremely rich. He now owns vast tracks of land, companies, a newspaper and, by himself, he is a major political play [...]

    17. Artemio Cruz is a man whose impending death compels him to look back over the span of his life to re-live its peak experiences. In a real sense Cruz was more than a man living in Mexico during a time of revolution: he is a microcosm of Mexico itself. I deeply respect and admire the inventive, narrative technique, which in some respects is revolutionary. The switch of narrative voice in its person is daring and works brilliantly to make the narrative come alive. The story line becomes personal an [...]

    18. A true masterpiece written by Carlos Fuentes who describes the reminiscences of the death of the main character, a Mexican landlord.As the background, a severe critic to the political Mexican system existing at that time.4* Aura4,5* The Death of Artemio CruzTR Terra Nostra

    19. رواية ممتازة ، ضايقنى فيها بس ما يمكن أن أسميه : انفصال التقنية عن الرواية فى رواية زى (مئة عام من العزلة) الرواية هى التقنية و انت بعد ما تخلص الرواية مابتفتكرش منها إلا تقنيتها و جهد التقنية مش ظاهر من كتر ما التقنية كانت مشبعة تماما بوظيفتها كذلك فى رواية (بدرو بارامو) العبقر [...]

    20. This is unquestionably a great novel about the upwardly mobile middle classes under the PRI (Partido Revolucionario Institucional) during the period from roughly 1900 to 1962. Our protagonist Artemio Cruz is on his death bed refusing to make a confession to his priest as the Catholic Church is one enemy he absolutely refuses to pardon.Cruz had been born into a family of very modest means. The Mexican revolutionary wars from 1911 to 1920 set Cruz onto path that will allow him to become very rich. [...]

    21. Que libro más maravilloso, no esperaba que otro libro de Carlos Fuentes pudiera ponerme la piel de gallina El libro no solamente es valioso por su contenido histórico de fechas sumamente importantes para México, sino que la narración Dios, la narración fue simplemente perfecta de principio a fin, aunque había un final obvio, las historias que fueron complementando la vida de Artemio Cruz hacen que el final parezca incluso algo inesperado, como si de pronto el ser detestable que te presenta [...]

    22. Fuentes sums up the Mexican reality in the monumental "Chingar" Chapter. If you can read in Spanish, you must read this book in the original language. Something is lost in translation when you read about F*#K for a dozen pages or so. A thought provoking book that should be studied along with the Mexican Revolution and Post-Revolutionary Mexico for adequate historical context.

    23. Caveat: This review is specific to my current, idiosyncratic reading needs. Specifically, I need not to have my depression exacerbated. Short version: if you are ill and trying not to focus on your physical being, and would be disturbed by the graphic depiction of the physical decomposition and mental fragmentation of a dying protagonist who is sociopathic, power-consumed, hateful and in no imaginable way sympathetic, don't read this book. Longer version follows.----------Some people achieve gre [...]

    24. La muerte de Artemio Cruz es una novela cautivadora que cuenta la vida y los recuerdos de Artemio Cruz en su lecho de muerto. Me encantó el lenguaje de esta novela, lo cual ilumina los pensamientos críticos y secos de Artemio Cruz. El vagar entre lo presente y el pasado se hace de una manera verdaderamente fascinante, y me parece que es bastante fisiológicamente preciso. Las memorias, los cuales son provocados por olores o palabras u observaciones, nos enseñan la vida vergonzosa y corrompida [...]

    25. I read this book for the fourth time this year. I read it first in about 1986. At that time, I read Carlos Fuentes's own English version. Later a new translation was published to rave reviews, so I read it again. I cannot remember when I read it for the third time, but I know I started encouraging friends and family to read it but got few if any takers. Now, reading it with the Facebook group "Classics and Impossible Reads," I understand why few persisted through the first 50 pages. It is TOUGH [...]

    26. This is my second venture into Fuentes, the first being "The Crystal Frontier." While "Crystal" was seemingly a bunch of short stories and "Artemio" is written as diary entries, I thought there was a definite connection in their forms. In "Crystal" the short stories often feature a lot of the same characters and all work together to paint a picture of existence on the literal and figurative "border." "Artemio" sometimes feels like disjointed anecdotes since the diary entries are not chronologica [...]

    27. I should have known going in that since A) we chose it for our Classics/Impossibles group and B) Harold Bloom edited an interpretation of the book featuring multiple essays, I was in for a challenge.I found it beautifully written in parts and exasperatingly difficult in parts. And after reading the first essay (Structure and Theme in Fuentes' La muerte de Artemio Cruzway more interesting than the title sounds!) I see that I have much to learn about the book I just finished. But I still found it [...]

    28. This was the first Fuentes book I ever read and he hooked me. I am now buying and reading all the rest. He is one of the great writers of the 21st century and totally overshadowed by Garcia Marquez and Vargas Llossa. This book is the story of Artemio Cruz as he reflects upon his life from the Mexican Revolution. He made it rich and did dubvious things to gain power. He seems to have no regrets but I won't give the story away. Written in the early 1960s, Fuentes uses early post modern style which [...]

    29. This book blew me away! Fuentes narrative style is nothing short of genius. He takes a man's life and presents the man in a way that none of us like to imagine that we are: human. It seems that so many of us either idealize or demonize people, including ourselves, instead of seeing what we really are, which is something unique and capable of mistakes and goodness. Fuentes also weaves in some historical information about Mexico and that gives it an authenticity that is very personal and intriguin [...]

    30. There are pros and cons to my annual read-a-book-in-Spanish self-imposed requirement.Pros:1. I feel oh-so-cultured and smart.2. My Spanish is back to near-fluent levels by the second half of the book.Cons:1. I have basically no idea what happened in the first half of the book.2. It takes freaking forever.Based on what I actually understood, this is a pretty darn good novel about Mexico and an old dude named Artemio. However, shifting perspectives, Mexican idioms, and lots of historical/political [...]
