Description - La tarde de un escritor / The Afternoon of a Writer by Peter Handke

Premio Nobel de Literatura 2019

"Fascinante [...]. Uno de los autores mas importantes en lengua alemana."
Los Angeles Times

Una tarde de diciembre, a la luz del ocaso, un escritor, sentado a su mesa de trabajo, decide dar un paseo por el mundo, deambular por patios, plazas y callejuelas, perderse por arrabales y volver a su casa al abrigo de la oscuridad. Al merodear y vagar por las calles, queda impresa en la realidad una huella doble: la de la mirada proyectada hacia el exterior y la de la duda que contempla lo que pueda haber dentro de si. Todo sera percibido como por vez primera, como si al cerrar los ojos la realidad apareciera en su forma mas pura y esencial.

Con esta novela, Peter Handke afianzo, como en ningun otro lugar, su personal indagacion en torno a las relaciones del ser humano consigo mismo y con todo aquello que lo rodea.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Nobel Prize in Literature 2019


"Fascinating . . . One of the strongest contemporary authors to emerge from German-speaking countries." - Los Angeles Times

One December afternoon at sunset, a writer while sitting at his desk, decides to walk around town to take in the outside world; he wanders through courtyards, town squares, and alleys, gets lost in suburbs, and returns home to the shelter of darkness. As he wanders the streets, a double thought is imprinted in his reality: that of a gaze projecting outward and that of a doubt that imagines what may be within him. Everything will be perceived as if for the first time, as if by closing his eyes, reality would appear in its purest and most essential form.

With this novel, Peter Handke strengthened, as never before, his inquiry about personal relationships with himself and with everything that surrounds him.
