Alejo Carpentier lo intentó por medio de un riquisimo lenguaje. I am very much interested in Cuba, had heard of Alejo, as a writer in the postwar period, when the intelligentsia was still attracted as much to Europe as to the USA.

Alejo Carpentier lo intentó por medio de un riquisimo lenguaje. As I delved into Chapter 1, what struck me first was Alejo’s Carpentier’s writing style: unbroken paragraphs continuing page after page, containing observations of people and their surroundings, combined with ideas and literary and philosophical references, all intertwined together into a single and often endless stream of consciousness.

Carpentier's masterpiece, El Acoso, was originally published in Spanish in 1956 by, and . Carpentier's El reino de este mundo was inspired by his 1943 trip to Haiti, and Los pasos perdidos drew on his visit to Venezuela in 1949.

Carpentier's masterpiece, El Acoso, was originally published in Spanish in 1956 by, and translated into American English by Alfred Mac Adam as The Chase and published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux in 1989, after over three decades of suppression in the United States for Carpentier's affiliation with Fidel Castro's Cuba (Carpentier had been Cuba's ambassador to France.

Los pasos perdidos book.

Alejo Carpentier lo intentó por medio de un riquísimo leng. Los pasos perdidos es un descenso a las raíces, una travesía cargada de símbolos y de una ancestral tradición cultural. Esta novela, escrita bajo el imperio del barroco, narra un viaje de vuelta: el protagonista, musicólogo, emprende una expedición al país de su infancia en busca de instrumentos musicales primitivos; al mismo tiempo, es una fuga: huye de un trabajo sin sentido, de una sociedad corrompida.

Retrata con vastedad y profundidad la realidad de latinoamerica tropical, su gente, paisajes, su magia oculta. Y su prosa impecable hace que sea un goce leerlo.

Brariel
La trama es muy buena pero el estilo del autor es demasiado descriptivo. En las primeras dos terceras partes del libro la descripción de los acontecimientos secundarios le quita protagonsimo a la historia.

Ohatollia
Me gusta mucho la forma en que las cosas puras que parecen intrascendentes son casi siempre las que más felicidad le dan al ser humano.

One of the great works of literature of all time. A mid-century intellectual undergoing a midlife crisis, peels back layers of civilization as he travels from modern urban life to primitive jungle tribes.

never received it and did not get a clear answer as to WHY I DID NOT GET IT.
IT CAUSED ME A LOT OF DISTRESS AND ACADEMIC PROBLEMS NOT TO RECEIVE IT AS PLANNED-PROMPTLY AND TO BE ADVISED THAT "I WAS NOT GOING TO GET IT"

I read “Los Pasos Perdidos,” in its original language (Spanish). I am very much interested in Cuba, had heard of Alejo, as a writer in the postwar period, when the intelligentsia was still attracted as much to Europe as to the USA. As I delved into Chapter 1, what struck me first was Alejo’s Carpentier’s writing style: unbroken paragraphs continuing page after page, containing observations of people and their surroundings, combined with ideas and literary and philosophical references, all intertwined together into a single and often endless stream of consciousness. Slowly one senses there is indeed a plot about our hero (whom I think remains unnamed, so we will call him “Alejo”) leaving the US on an adventure to South America supposedly to look for some ceramic indigenous musical instruments, but actually an excuse to get away from his wife and a humdrum existence in the US. All the places are either unnamed or use imaginary names, so we have to recognize them by their characteristics. His origin seems to be New York, his destination feels very much like Venezuela, and indeed in a “Note” at the very end of the book, we are told where in Venezuela, if we hadn’t guessed it already. There are three women in the novel: The first is Ruth, his wife, an actress a play (in Broadway?) that has had a very long run, so she has been added for years. She has an opportunity to take a break, so she runs off by herself to the West Coast on a liberating vacation, leaving him behind of what was to be a few weeks. He goes off on his expedition to South America (for which he received a University stipend) with his girlfriend, Mouche, a Frenchwoman (“mouche” means “fly” in French) who satisfies his sexual desire and his interest in European culture in a way his wife can’t). In South America, he ends up dropping Mouche in favor of the third and final woman, “Rosario,” who is portrayed as a native who is devoid of any cultural artifice and thus a pure product of the natural element. Looking back on it, one of the interesting things about this book is that, what Alejo considers “native,” is really not native in the real sense: none of his native characters are real aborigines, but rather representatives of that mixed “mulato” culture that exists at the periphery of Latin American countries, a mixture of intermarriage of many races, and of people coming from various parts of the world. The true natives are called “indios” in this book, and their function is subservient to that of this quasi-white culture — just the way things actually are if you go to these places, even today. Still, that does not stop the author from exploiting this allegorical tale, in which Alejo increasingly portrays Western Culture as meaningless and empty, and looks at life in the jungle as the only place where, devoid of any artifice, man can reach his fulfillment. And that seems to be the message of the book: an ode to nativism, which, interestingly enough, even rejects as artificial the interest of European artists and intellectuals ion the early 20th century in African native culture. There is no eroticism in the book, yet much is made of the sexual act, and its importance in validating Alejo’s feelings about what is genuine and what is not. But his vision of the proper and “true” relationship between man & woman is very conservative. Although he rejects as artificial the notion of marriage as a social contract (e.g the marriage sacrament), he at first thinks that Rosario his girlfriend is dying to be married to him, only to find out she too rejects such a notion, saying that marriage is just a way to enslave the woman. In the ideology of this book, a woman.s role is to serve her husband in all ways, (and the husband’s role is to take care and protect her) but this disposition must be entirely voluntary, not enforced by outsiders. Indeed one of the questions which Alejo explores is how a primitive society first goes about creating established law, and then, having established rules of behavior, how are these rules to be enforced., I.e. what are the consequence of disobedience. A dramatic incident in the book is an incident of rape, and how it is punished.
