Libro Doña Bárbara – Rómulo Gallegos: reseñas, resumen y comentarios

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Short, but with an amazing narrative pace, the book tells us the story of Don Barbara, a cruel and vindictive woman who is know as the “cacica” chief of the Arauca, in the venezuelan “llanos”, due to her ferocity, unscrupulous nature, and her apparent supernatural powers. However his rule was also brutal and corrupt. Gallegos won then international reputation as one of the leading novelists in Latin American literature with this portrait of a ruthless female boss of a hacienda, describing therefor the typical character of the Venezuelan interior.

Por ello, la naturaleza debe aceptar el orden y la ley, mientras que la ciudad debe convivir con los rasgos propios de la vida rural. De todos los libros que tuve que leer en la escuela y el colegio, definitivamente este es mi favorito. Me ha encantado leer sobre los llanos venezolanos! Short, but with an amazing narrative pace, the book tells us the story of Don Barbara, a cruel and vindictive woman who is know as the “cacica” chief of the Arauca, in the venezuelan “llanos”, due to her ferocity Though I never read it in high school, Dona Barbara is a staple lecture across Latin American schools all over, and maybe this fact kept me away from it for a long time, as normally the readings assigned as part of a scholar program tend to be boring.

It is written in the third person and mixes vernacular language and regionalisms with literary narrative, making the main conflict more obvious and at the same time more tangible. This book is by an author from Venezuela. Luzardo proposes a division of the properties with fencing. Obama could do it though.

The novel was published to worldwide acclaim, and despite Gallegos’ research in the Llanos taking just 8 days, [4] those familiar with the Venezuelan Llanos were almost without exception convinced of its authenticity, convinced Gallegos was very familiar with them, if not born there.

Yang pening sikit, sebab ada banyak watak dengan nama yang kita tak biasa dengar. Tapi lama-lama, nama-nama tersebut akan senang dikenali.

It holds,side by side, beautiful life and hideous death. Lists with This Book.

Jan 13, Irene Azuaje rated it it was amazing. As well, descriptions of the life in the “llanos” are vivid and full of sensations.

El deber no es destruirse, sino transformarla en beneficio propio. I truly hope that more non-Spanish speaking readers discover this Spanish classic. I am not sure how much would be lost in translation if gqllegos novel is read in English, but in Spanish this is one of the best gal,egos written in South America. I also found the room which had been locked up for some 13 years when upon opening it Tal vez algun dia. The events that transpire between the two of them and their peons workers make for a great story.

Soto rated it it was amazing.
