El balneario [The Spa] | [Carmen Martín Gaite]

El balneario [The Spa]

En los diez magistrales relatos que componen El balneario, se incluye el que da título al libro y que obtuvo el premio Café Gijón de novela corta 1954. “No resulta fácil encontrar, en la logia mayor de la literatura española contemporánea, una observadora de la cotidianidad tan aguda, profunda y lúcida como Carmiña Martin Gaite. Nadie como ella para reparar en ese detalle, aparentemente nimio, que revela una dependencia, subraya un ejercicio de poder, señala con el dedo un terror, un ataque de angustia o de soledad”.

    "Tough miniatures"

    Tough, because of the clear-sighted and minutely observed nature of the stories, their often bleak view of life, and, because, at my level of Spanish, the language is difficult. The stories are all scenes from daily life, and often reflect desperation on the part of the usually female central character. They were too difficult for me to enjoy properly (for personal enjoyment, I would have to give only 2 stars), but I think that the literary prizes won by the author are well-deserved. Macu Gomez reads with very expressively, but less clearly than some of the others, further adding to the difficulty of the text. -- In summary, probably great for those with better Spanish than me - hence the 4 stars.
