Literary fiction

Literary fiction comprises fictional works that hold literary merit; that is, they involve social commentary, or political criticism, or focus on the human condition. Literary fiction is deliberately written in dialogue with existing works, created with the above aims in mind and is focused more on themes than on plot, and it is common for literary fiction to be taught and discussed in schools and universities.

Literary fiction is usually contrasted with popular, commercial, or genre fiction. Some have described the difference between them in terms of analyzing reality (literary) rather than escaping reality (popular). The contrast between these two subsets of fiction is controversial among critics and scholars.

chingar

El origen del vocablo chingar lo describe en una forma más literaria Octavio Paz, en ‘El laberinto de la soledad‘ (léelo y te sorprenderás, es más, mirarás al mexicano en su ideología al desnudo, y quizás entonces entiendas el porqué de la condición de México) en el que menciona que ‘la chingada’ era La Malinche. Inicialmente se usó el término de una manera peyorativa, era la traidora, la que ‘chingó a los mexicanos’.

El verbo CHINGAR es un verbo del léxico mexicano que se utiliza para todo, desde lo mejor que esta chingón hasta lo peor que está de la chingada. Su uso se a convertido en un identificador cultural y en un vehículo para expresar estados de ánimo. El verbo CHINGAR en todas sus formas es muy popular en México y la Real Academia Española de la Lengua ha decidido aceptarlo formalmente.

Roadside Picnic (Russian: Пикник на обочине, Piknik na obochineIPA: [pʲikˈnʲik na ɐˈbotɕɪnʲe]) is a short science fiction novel written by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky between January 18 and November 3 of 1971. As of 1998, 38 editions of the novel were published in 20 countries.[1] The novel was first translated to English by Antonina W. Bouis. The preface to the first American edition of the novel (MacMillan Publishing Co., Inc, New York, 1977) was written by Theodore Sturgeon. The film Stalker is loosely based on the novel, with a screenplay written by the Strugatskys.

The brothers Arkady (Russian: Арка́дий; August 28, 1925 – October 12, 1991) and Boris (Russian: Бори́с; April 14, 1933 – November 19, 2012) Strugatsky (Russian: Струга́цкий; alternate spellings: StrugatskiyStrugatskiStrugatskii) were SovietRussian science fiction authors who collaborated on their fiction.


Boris Strugatsky: Russia mourns death of sci-fi writer

Vladimir Putin and Russia‘s liberal opposition who accuse him of growing authoritarianism have came together to mourn the death of Boris Strugatsky, a science fiction author famous for novels critical of the totalitarian Soviet system.

Strugatsky died in St Petersburg on Monday, aged 79, his foundation said. Media reports said he had been hospitalised with an illness.

 

Strugatsky, along with his brother Arkady, who died in 1991, wrote many novels and short stories critical of Soviet authoritarianism. When they began writing in the 1950s they were able to evade censors by placing subtle criticism in the context of distant planets and universes. That changed as time went on and they faced state censorship.

 

Among their most celebrated works are Roadside Picnic – the basis for director Andrei Tarkovsky’s film Stalker – and Hard to be a God – the story of a man who visits another planet and grows horrified with its government’s cruel methods of stifling human development and freedom.

Boris Strugatsky had been critical of Putin and the authoritarian system he has built since coming to power in 2000. In his last interview, given in September 2011, he accused Putin of attempting to return Russia to the turn of the 20th century.

Asked what he did not like about modern Russia, Strugatsky answered: “That nationalisation is continuing everywhere. That the press is completely under the control of the authorities. That bureaucratic power is always getting stronger.”

Strugatsky signed open letters compiled by Russian intellectuals urging Putin to release the jailed oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky and the punk band Pussy Riot.

Nonetheless, Putin issued his condolences, calling Strugatsky “one of the brightest, most talented and popular writers of the time.

“The books that he wrote in creative collaboration with Arkady Strugatsky are an entire epoch in the history of Russian literature, in the history of our country. Even today, they are at the highest levels of modernity.”

Dmitry Medvedev, the prime minister, wrote on Twitter that Strugatsky was “a great writer and thinker. An irreplaceable loss to Russian and world literature.”

The Strugatskys’ writings received a fresh wind of popularity in Russia earlier this year, as the growing opposition to Putin drew parallels between the dark worlds the authors depicted and modern Russia.

Dmitry Bykov, a popular poet, critic and opposition activist, wrote: “He was an absolute, pure genius. With his departure, everything has become darker and more airless.”

“Successive generations of Russian intellectuals were raised on the Strugatskys,” said Muireann Maguire, a fellow at Oxford University. “Their books can be read with a certain pair of spectacles on as political commentaries on Soviet society or indeed any repressive society.”

Ardiente Paciencia

Ardiente Paciencia, or El Cartero De Neruda, is a 1985 novel by Antonio Skármeta. The novel was published in the English market under the title The Postman. It tells the story of Mario Jiménez, a fictional postman in revolution-era Chile, who befriends the real-life poet Pablo Neruda.

The novel is based on the motion picture of the same author released in 1983[1], and it was turned into another movie in 1995 as Il Postino, directed by Michael Radford. It was also turned in an opera, Il Postino, by Daniel Catán, with Plácido Domingo portraying Pablo Neruda (premiered at the Los Angeles Opera, 2010).
