“Avevo diciassette anni quando ho iniziato a scrivere i miei primi articoli, period il 1937, e a ventuno ero giornalista professionista.
Sono entrato nel mondo della stampa dalla porta principale. Non lo dico in keeping with orgoglio, ma perché non conoscevo proprio nessuno che potesse aiutarmi.” E’ con questo spirito che Enzo Biagi ha affrontato il Novecento: una grande voglia di raccontare il nostro pace e un’inimitabile capacità di aiutarci a comprenderlo. Durante los angeles sua lunga carriera è stato testimone – o “piccolo involontario protagonista” – di momenti storici che hanno lasciato il segno: l. a. Resistenza e il Dopoguerra, gli anni del growth e quelli di piombo, l’Italia delle mani sporche e quella dei nuovi potenti. in keeping with tutta l. a. vita Biagi ha instancabilmente tratteggiato uno dei più dettagliati ritratti del nostro Paese, dando luce a una produzione giornalistica che è fra i più preziosi contributi alla biografia di questa giovane Repubblica. Dalla Liberazione ai nostri giorni, Io c’ero presenta una ricca selezione di articoli, molti dei quali ormai introvabili, passando in rassegna gli eventi e i personaggi che hanno fatto epoca, i fatti di cronaca e di gown che ancora oggi segnano los angeles nostra memoria comune. Si tratta di un patrimonio sempre più fragile e spesso minacciato, quello stesso patrimonio che Biagi ha cercato di tramandare con coerenza. A un anno dalla scomparsa è forse questa l’ultima lezione di un maestro del giornalismo: non essere mai stato un uomo in line with tutte le stagioni, pur riuscendo a raccontarle tutte.

New PDF release: Biografia, Amores y Canciones (Spanish Edition)

By Concha Valdes Miranda,Paulina Aly

ISBN-10: 0692541454

ISBN-13: 9780692541456

Sería injusto asomarse a l. a. producción poética de Concha Valdés Miranda, con l. a. pupila escrutadora siempre,implacable de un exigente crítico literario, en un rebuscamiento, inútil e innecesario, de lo propio y lo reminiscente, o en busca de un perfeccionamiento impecable, de acuerdo con las normas de l. a. retórica y poética. En ella hay que buscar, los angeles emotividad, del mensaje directo, que se hace fascinante cuando se advierten, a través
de una límpida transparencia de sinceridad, los diversos matices de una voz apasionada y sensual, sin rebuscamientos ni ficción.
En l. a. obra de toda poetisa -desde l. a. Ibarburo hasta l. a. Mistral-, lo sexual ocupa, un lugar preferente. Y Concha Valdés Miranda, no es l. a. excepción. En ella también, es tema primordial. Sólo que, siempre nos ofrece, su grito de
mujer, envuelto en los contornos sutiles de un amor sublimado. Y su voz nos llega, ora humilde y suplicante, ora altiva y exigente, impregnada siempre, de ese dulce y artful misterio, que fertiliza los angeles grandiosidad del amor.
De ella se diría, que sus versos y sus canciones, son como hijos que le nacieran, en cada amanecer, Porque están hechos a su imagen y semejanza. Son como ella. Huelen y saben a ella. Fruta cortada de un tajo. Planta silvestre, de
tímida belleza y extraordinaria singularidad.
Así como su verso, es ella. Toda ella. Y así son sus
canciones.
En l. a. poetisa y en l. a. musicógrafa, hay emoción y ritmo, cadencia y vibración. Es una mujer antena, con algo de Dios, en los ojos, y algo de Satanás, en los labios, en su silueta y en el andar.
Como compositora ha alcanzado gran fama. Sus canciones se extienden, cada vez más, en sadly del éxito. Los mejores y más afamados cantantes del momento se han convertido en sus mejores intérpretes. Y l. a. crítica teatral, los angeles ha proclamado: los angeles compositora más destacada del año 1966. Toña l. a. Negra, l. a. gran cantante mexicana acaba de
hacer una verdadera creación de su canción “Voy a
quitarme el luto”. Su canción “Déjame ser” es el “Hit” de más éxito en los angeles actualidad musical.
Esa ambitious mujer antena, cuya poesía, está llena de musicalidad y cuyas canciones, están impregnadas de poesía, me pide que escriba, nada menos, que un prólogo, como pórtico, de esta valiosísima recopilación de sus versos y sus canciones. Y yo me niego. Un prólogo es casi siempre una presentación y a Concha Valdés Miranda no l. a. podrá presentar nadie.
Es ya, una gloria de Cuba y un motivo de orgullo de todos los cubanos.
Lo más que puedo hacer, es lo que hasta ahora han hecho los demás, aplaudirla y rendirle, el más sincero homenaje de cariño, de respeto y admiración, a l. a. autora de “Déjame ser” que es y será por los siglos de los siglos. Amen
