Summary

Con introducción de Gabriel García Márquez

"Vine a Comala porque me dijeron que acá vivía mi padre, un tal Pedro Páramo. Mi madre me lo dijo. Y yo le prometí que vendría a verlo en cuanto ella muriera".

Obra maestra del universo literario en español, esta portentosa novela mexicana narra la historia de Pedro Páramo, un caudillo local de quien dependen la vida y la muerte de un pueblo, Comala, y del hijo que va a buscarlo porque así se lo prometió a su madre moribunda. El narrador, JuanPreciado, llega a un pueblo deshabitado pero lleno de susurros, y a través de estos conoce la destrucción que trajo la convulsa pasión de Pedro Páramo hacia Susana San Juan. Publicada en 1955 y aclamada por el público y la crítica, Pedro Páramo representa un cambio radical con la novela realista de la época. Edición con introducción de Gabriel García Márquez.

"No vayas a pedirle nada. Exígele lo nuestro. Lo que estuvo obligado a darme y nunca me dio... El olvido en que nos tuvo, mi hijo, cóbraselo caro".

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A masterpiece of the surreal, this stunning novel from Mexico depicts a man’s strange quest for his heritage. Beseeched by his dying mother to locate his father, Pedro Páramo, whom they fled from years ago, Juan Preciado sets out for Comala. Comala is a town alive with whispers and shadows—a place seemingly populated only by memory and hallucinations. Built on the tyranny of the Páramo family, its barren and broken-down streets echo the voices of tormented spirits sharing the secrets of the past.

First published to both critical and popular acclaim in 1955, Pedro Páramo represented a distinct break with earlier, largely "realist" novels from Latin America. Rulfo’s entrancing mixture of vivid sensory images, violent passions, and inexplicable sorcery—a style that has come to be known as ‘magical realism”—has exerted a profound influence on subsequent Latin American writers, from Jos’ Donoso and Carlos Fuentes to Mario Vargas Llosa and Gabriel Garcia Márquez.
