Miguel Delibes, Señora de Rojo sobre Fondo Gris +
A very brief novel but very concise and solid through beginning to the end. Delibes teaches a lesson on how to create an admirable female character, honoring his wife, a woman capable of stealing a simple with her simple presence. A nouvelle that can touch very deep feelings with a ease situations and a very agile prose.
Tomas Tranströmer, Baltics (re-read)
Just when you think epic chants are a question of the middle ages, Tranströmer takes us to his landscapes and flood us in the vivid images of his family from mid XIX century to the present days. A land he knows very well, inherited from people who carried it in their veins, his grandparents. Part three reminded me so much of The Waste Land, very mythic with a lot of cult references you have to slowly decipher to obtain the whole immensity of the poem. Magnificent work!
