Book Overview
«Si fuera verdad (definitivamente no lo es) que Ad n fue creado de polvo y un soplo, al primero lo acarre el ngel de la Muerte, y el soplo que lo insufl , por lo tanto, fue de pavor y odio. Y si todo lo que se nos ha contado sobre el Para so fuera al rev s? Frente a lo que pareciera un manuscrito ap crifo que contiene diez libros y 91 pasajes, Eva decide contar su versi n: ni fue creada a partir de la costilla de Ad n, ni es exacto que fuera expulsada por la manzana y la serpiente, ni la historia de Abel y Ca n es la que cuentan, ni la del Diluvio, ni la de la Torre de Babel... Con una brillante prosa, Carmen Boullosa le da una vuelta de tuerca al libro del G nesis para desmontar la figura masculina y reconstruir el mundo, el origen de la gastronom a, la domesticaci n de los animales, el cultivo de la tierra y el placer, a trav s de la mirada femenina. A partir de esta exploraci n, a veces divertida y otras dolorosa, El libro de Eva hace un repaso por las historias que nos han contado y que han ayudado a fomentar (y cimentar) la absurda idea de que la mujer es compa era, complemento y hasta accesorio del hombre, lo que abre la puerta a la violencia criminal contra las mujeres. Boullosa las desmiente y las transgrede en esta novela feminista, fundacional y desfachatada. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION If it were true (it definitely is not) that Adam was created of dust and a single breath, the first was carried by the Angel of Death, and the breath that gave him life, therefore, was one of dread and hatred. What if everything they've told us about the Garden was the other way around? Faced with what appears to be an apocryphal manuscript containing ten books and 91 passages, Eve decides to tell her version: she was neither created from Adam's rib, nor is it exact that she was expelled by the apple and the serpent, nor is story they tell of Abel and Cain true, neither that of the Flood, nor that of the Tower of Babel... With brilliant prose, Carmen Boullosa gives a twist to the book of Genesis to dismantle the male figure and rebuild the world, the origin of gastronomy, the domestication of animals, the cultivation of land and pleasure, through the feminine gaze. Based on this exploration, sometimes fun and other times painful, The Book of Eve takes a tour through the stories they've told us and which have helped to foster (and cement) the absurd idea that woman is the companion, complement, and even accessory to man, which opens the door to criminal violence against women. Boullosa refutes and breaks them in this feminist novel, foundational and brazen.
