Federico en su balcón Nietzsche on His Balcony is the last book by Mexican novelist Carlos Fuentes It was published posthumously Although I have liked everything else I have read by the author, this book did not hold together for me.Consider the framing device The narrator Carlos Fuentes is standing on a balcony at his hotel On the adjacent balcony is a man who looks like and who claims to be Friedrich Nietzsche Apparently, he is allowed an Eternal Return for a limited time once each year The book is ostensibly a study of political revolutions, closely approximating the events of Hay muchas maneras de estar en la historia A veces la haces, a veces la sufres, a veces nada m s la miras P gina 143.Este libro me dej sin palabras en la boca y un millar de pensamientos que no me paran de rondar por la cabeza Si bien al inicio me cost adaptarme a la forma en la que est escrita la historia, una vez que estuve en sinton a y agarre el hilo simplemente no par de disfrutarla No puedo decir de qu va porque honestamente no sabr a c mo explicarlo, pero consid Federico ha muerto Lo dice Dios Creo que Carlos Fuentes nos presenta en Federico en su balc n una propuesta bastante interesante Un di logo entre el autor mismo y Friedrich Nietzsche en el presente donde, a trav s de sus personajes y una creciente revoluci n llena de simbolismos, hace un an lisis de lo que el fil sofo alem n podr a decir de nuestra sociedad hoy en dia.Como admiradora de Fuentes debo resaltar que precisamente es esto lo que m s admiro de este gran intelectual contempor neo, su capacidad de ofrecernos diferentes y nuevas t cnicas narrativas que ofrecen una introspecci n, principalmente, de la historia, el poder y la sociedad del M xico presente, y que lo llevaron a numerosos reconocimientos literarios a trav s del mundo Es un placer abrir un libro de Fuentes y ser sorprendida por una narrativa muy diferente a todo lo dem s que previamente hayas le This is one of the most disturbing books I ve ever read.The thoroughly unpleasant 19th century philosopher Nietzsche or less invented nihilism, and formulated a theory of power of the will that was seized upon by the Nazis, among others In this book, he appears on the balcony next to that of the fictional author, and the two of them exchange banter about a revolution that is taking place in the unnamed city below them They tell each other stories They discuss each story in light of Nietzsche s philosophy They speak of the leaders of the revolution, and the leaders relationships to each other telling the tales mostly through conversations that sometimes appear anonymous it s difficult to tell exactly who is speaking, and that may be the real author s point these leaders often blend into a single entity, seeking what is best for the people or for the revolution or for the country, but always misidentifying it Their stories begin with cruelty and deviant behavior and grow stranger as the revolution proceeds Th This was a very interesting book that left me with a lot to think about It deals with questions of identity, time, philosophy, and fiction in a structure that is not always entirely consistent or coherent, but the messiness of it just makes it intriguing Is that really Nietzsche on his balcony Is Nietzsche just a projection of his interlocutor Is the interlocutor Fuentes Are the two main protagonists just alter egos of all of their characters The Nietzsche character doesn t seem to really be purely Nietzsche Was that intentional I think that the answer to all of these questions is a definite maybe Or sometimes yes, sometimes no.In some sense I think that we are supposed to believe that history is cyclical, but sometimes not On one level Mendes, Dante and Azar are Marat, Danton and Robespierre and the general at the end is Napoleon, but on another level they are their own unique individual characters Maybe the repetition of history is like Marx famously suggested in The 18th Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce I don t know But the I don t knowness that I consistently experienced in reading this book was part of what made it fun.I was initially unhappy with the female characters, who all seem to be different aspects of the same person, who is at At a certain point we who are raised up in that poststructuralist wing of the Liberal Arts Inc compound become accustomed to the sentiment expressed especially by the students of Derrida that all that which relates to human enterprise, even maybe especially that which would not at first seem so, is text All is text Try exclaiming this to a positivist Prepare to see him riled But here we are in the arms of Fuentes, on his last excursion of a novel, before going or less gently into that neutral night This is a novel written by Fuentes along with Fuentes The work of the artist is always in some sense a taking counsel with self Only one of the Fuentes machines is also basically Friedrich Nietzsche A Friedrich Nietzsche, not THE Friedrich Nietzsche Or a panoply of Friedrich Nietzsche functions that are also half of the Carlos Fuentes meditating and mediating this text into existence Fuentes Fuentes Nietzsche is both commenting upon and generating an edifice of fiction, and we do have to consider that maybe if everything is text everything is also fiction Certainly everything in your fiction becomes fiction when you are writing fiction, but let s not get dizzy w tautologies Fuentes Fuentes Nietzsche are amassing a series of fictional narrative blocks around an engagement w a subject very, very dear to Latin American fiction revolution Because of the bifurcated author function and its role as a sometimes irritating Greek chorus Carlos Nietzche ha hablado Revoluci n, una palabra permea todo el relato, no lo mejor de Fuentes, s genial para ser su ltimo publicado , la gran soluci n para exterminar la opresi n y rapacidad de las lites, pero claro, siempre se comer a sus hijos Ah comienza el eterno retorno de Don Nietzche, todo lo dem s es una ilustra elucubraci n transportado a cualquier triste historia de una naci n que experimenta The Light Of Dawn Is Breaking Over The Impressive Balconies Of The Hotel Metropol As Two Legends, Friedrich Nietzsche And Leonardo Loredan, Exchange Thoughts On Power, Love, Justice, And Loyalty The Year Could Be 2014 Or 2016, And The Country Suffers The Ravages Of The Revolution That Has Overturned A Perfect Dictatorship Leonardo And Friedrich Watch The Mob Pass By, Mindful Of The Endless Spiral Of Violence It Represents And Thinking That, Perhaps, The Horror Will Never End Federico En Su Balcon Is A Testimony To Fuentes Literary Triumph A Definitive Lesson On What He Stood For, And Will Continue To Represent, As A Writer It Is Also A Verbal Self Portrait Where The Storyteller Is Multiplied In His Characters To Create The Spiritual And Philosophical Contradictions That Breathed In His Soul A Dialogue That Opens The Door To Interrogations Without Attempting To Provide Decisive Answers. The first third is magical However, the revolutionary tale unfolds too quickly lots of telling instead of showing resulting in a lack of heart, and the fabricators add philosophy than necessary.
