Alejo Carpentier y la cultura del surrealismo en América by Anke Birkenmaier

By Anke Birkenmaier

En este novedoso y agudo estudio, Anke Birkenmaier muestra cómo, además de ser uno de los movimientos artísticos y literarios más importantes del siglo veinte, en los años 30 el surrealismo se alió a l. a. entonces naciente cultura de masas. A partir de l. a. trayectoria intelectual del cubano Alejo Carpentier, quien trabajó como libretista y profesional de los angeles radio en Francia, Birkenmaier traza l. a. fascinante historia de los angeles época de entreguerras cuando franceses y latinoamericanos creían en el valor terapéutico de las yuxtaposiciones surrealistas y en los angeles autoridad casi divina de l. a. voz del locutor de radio. A base de una investigación de autógrafos hasta ahora inéditos o desconocidos del novelista cubano, Birkenmaier recrea el ambiente cultural que desemboca en los angeles nueva escritura latinoamericana del propio Carpentier —una escritura que, al incorporar una "oralidad mediatizada" como respuesta a los medios masivos de l. a. postguerra, desempeñaría un papel importante en los angeles obra de autores como Mario Vargas Llosa, Guillermo Cabrera Infante y Julio Cortázar.
