    The fact is, it seems, that the most you can hope is to be a little less, in the end, the creature you were in the beginning, and the middle Samuel Beckett from Molloy, quoted from the intro by Esther Allen.Don Diego de Zama is going mad Paranoia is a cloak that he swings around his shoulders like a beast of burden It weighs him down and leaves cracks in his mind for depression, dementia, and hopelessness to grow roots He has been sent to this far flung outpost in Asunci n He assures us it it to [...]

    Something is always expected To the victim of expectations, begins Antonio Di Benedetto s Zama in its epigraph The Argentine masterpiece, first published in 1956 and, in 2016, made available in an exacting English translation by Esther Allen that retains the precise and often surrealistic prose, is a novel of surmounting frustration and failed expectations of a man caged by his social status and position The theme of restlessly remaining static functions equally as an existential and socio poli [...]

    Deserves a place at the table with Julian Gracq s masterpieces of waiting for something to arrive The Opposing Shore 1951 and A Balcony in the Forest 1958 , as well as Dino Buzzati s The Tartar Steppe 1940 , another really worthwhile novel of anticipatory anxiety, all of which seem like Cold War fever dreams The Tartar Steppe was ahead of its time really should have been published a decade later This one is dedicated to victims of expectation expectation suggests hope but also prediction of a fu [...]

    Zama by Antonio Di Benedetto is one of those unknown books from South America that makes one wonder whether the United States took a wrong turn by being so Eurocentric From the southern cone of that wild, but strangely civilized, continent, life has au unfamiliar look probably because the path traveled through history was so different.The main character is one Don Diego de Zama, a minor criollo official in Asuncion, Paraguay, far removed from his family down river in Buenos Aires Zama is a bit o [...]

    For lack of a better term, I think you could call this South American historical Noir Di Benedetto s wring is great, wonderful, powerful He does things with sentences that make my knees weak.So why three stars Because like Celine, this book has a narrator who I think should get hit by a bus however, buses weren t around when the book takes place I m glad I read I will most likely track down other books, but I was wishing for a bus Strangely, though the ending was great 2016 NYRB Book Club select [...]

    Esta novela trata sobre la vida de Diego de Zama, un asesor letrado de la Gobernaci n en Paraguay y uno de los personajes m s miserables que le en mi vida Rencor, venganza, crueldad, enga o, cobard a, miseria, fiereza ,traici n, abuso de poder, marginalidad, son algunos de sus temas La historia en s es interesante, aunque por momentos decae, siempre te mantiene interesado Est narrada en primera persona y organizada en tres partes que ocurren en 1790 , 1794 y 1799 La primera y la tercera fueron m [...]

    Empecemos por lo f cil La novela tiene una prosa extraordinaria, original, que me ha sorprendido primero y seducido completamente despu s Tard algo, no mucho, en acompasarme a su ritmo, en acostumbrarme a su estructura de frases y p rrafos, en disipar mi confusi n al atacar ese texto que, narrado en primera persona, parec a un diario donde los acontecimientos se iban superponiendo unos a otros sin ligaz n aparente, escenas sueltas, algunas peque os relatos en s mismos, que poco a poco me iban de [...]

    This is an English translation of a classic masterpiece of Argentinian and Spanish literature It is the interior monologue of a servant of the Court of Spain that is placed in 1790 in a small and isolated outpost of Ascuncion the capital of Paraguay Don Diego di Zama is an Americano as is his wife Marta, of mixed blood, but through his ambitions has risen in rank but will always be viewed slightly less than the white Spanish families that have the ear of the Governor and through him of the King.

    Hace mucho no le a algo que me conmoviera tanto Con Paraguay de fondo y Di Benedetto con su escritura seca, punzante, precisa urgente El libro se lee esperando barcos que no llegan, nombramientos, sueldos que no se pagan, mujeres hermosas que no se dejan amar esperando que nos nazcan unas ganas de vivir o de embarcarnos y cruzar el territorio que nos separa de una revelaci n Zama es la historia de un se or al que le gusta quedarse a la deriva, que espera que lo vayan a sacar de su ensimismamient [...]

    Diego de Zama is a midlevel bureaucrat stationed in Paraguay at the end of the 18th century He wants to return to Buenos Aires and his family and the congenial life of the larger community His service in Ascuncion was supposed to be a short one, but during the course of the novel he waits 9 years Like a Beckett character, he waits in increasing alienation and fear and expectation while becoming and adrift The novel s 3 parts track his progress from simple loneliness and love affairs to fantas [...]

    Una historia de como se puede pasar una vida en la espera Me encanta la dedicatoria de este libro para las v ctimas de la espera Zama pasa la vida esperando a que lo transfieran cerca de su familia La familia es un fantasma para el, el hogar, representa lo que m s desea Pero tambi n se quiere enamorar y hace varios intentos que no llegan a nada Creo que no era el libro indicado para empezar a leer a benedetto, pero me encant igual.

    Solid I suspect it loses something in translation, through no fault of the excellent Esther Allen, but just because I imagine Benedetto using all kinds of archaic, 18th century Hispanisms did I make that word up I m surprised by my enjoyment, actually The first third is about Don Diego s bursting penis and its fight with his equally bursting self importance, and it took a bit too much effort to convince myself that we re meant to read all that ironically The middle third has some unfortunate gho [...]

    Algunos libros llegan por algo en el momento justo, creo que para mi ste fue el caso de Zama Lo ten a hace rato en lista de espera y de la nada, decid dejar otro a medias para leerlo Ya desde el primer p rrafo me pareci algo maravilloso, un sutil decir sin decir que se va tejiendo poco a poco Una densidad que te transmite con peque os detalles, las emociones de injusticia, renuncia, miseria y doblegar del esp ritu que va profundiz ndose con cada nuevo evento que Diego Zama debe sobrellevar Pero [...]

    Al empezar la novela y leer que se sit a en el a o 1790 me esper un bodrio, de esos que dec s uh, otro lugar com n m s pero me vol el coco muy en cursiva Como bien dicen en todos lados, la historia trata sobre la espera, pero no cualquier espera, sino de una en la ausencia, casi amn sica, que atraviesa a Diego de Zama Suspendido en el silencio de sus pensamientos, Zama existe para el futuro pero se encuentra devorado por el presente Aunque se traslade el territorio va consigo El dinero, su mujer [...]

    Una novela rara Creo que no termino de entenderla Magn ficamente escrita, como en el siglo XIX No esperaba que la narraci n estuviera ubicada en la d cada de 1790, pero me descubri un mundo nuevo Inquietante, me deja ganas de buscar c mo se ley.

    Zama is a fascinating character To the bitter end he is filled with expectations that can never be realized He is a terrible bureaucrat caught in a Kafkaesque bureaucracy and a would be Casanova filled with delusions about his power over women, who seem to dominate him instead He tries to be duplicitous, but always with disastrous results He seeks final vindication as a military hero, where he fails even abjectly than in his other endeavors He is Akaky Akakievich with a higher reach, but the sa [...]

    Zama es la historia de un se or al que le gusta quedarse a la deriva, que espera que lo vengan a sacar de su ensimismamiento y su podredumbre eso no pasa casi nunca o s A no ser que uno sea Tel maco y adoptemos ese mimetismo que como l dice es la defensa de las bestias.Zama se volver a polvo o nube o cad ver de mono o tardecita en el patio hasta desaparecer mientras se revuelve en el horror del absurdo y de las ganas de no ocuparse de nada y echarse a morir y descansar para siempre el acogedor y [...]

    Es sin dudas una muy buena novela, pero mi experiencia con esta lectura trajo alguna desilusi nM s all de las diferencias argumentales, el sentido m s profundo del texto me hac a evocar permanentemente a El desierto de los T rtaros de Buzzati, que le hace un par de meses La espera, la soledad, acaso la alienaci nEs decir, le a algo que me interesaba, pero que sent a que de alg n modo ya hab a le do Esto, obviamente, no tiene que ver con los m ritos de ambos libros sino con mi experiencia persona [...]

    1 2 Tantalizing opacity, prose and narrative polished and honed to a lucid, impenetrable surface it s all there, dense and rich, no need to look beneath Can t wait to see what Lucretia Martel does with this in her film adaptation.

    Si no he entendido mal la jugada, la novela de Di Benedetto vendr a a ser una especie de parodia de la novela del Siglo de Oro espa ol, e incluso de la novela caballeresca, dado que una parte est dedicada a los galanteos y la otra a las gestas militares En la primera parte Diego de Zama es un ser inepto y vicioso y en la segunda sus aptitudes incorporan la torpeza Pero su verdadero valor se sostiene en dos estrategias combinadas.Por un lado encontramos que la prosa sintetiza la naturaleza de su [...]

    I segreti del cielo Ero un fumatore accanito Una sera mi addormentai con un sigaro in bocca Mi svegliai con la paura di svegliarmi Sembrava che lo sapessi m era nata un ala di pipistrello Con ripugnanza, cercai al buio il mio coltello grande Me la tagliai Una volta recisa, alla luce del giorno, era una donna bruna e io dicevo di amarla Mi portarono in prigione.Tra conquistadores e indios, Don Diego de Zama vive il suo catalogo di avventure battaglie e acquavite, crimini e vendette, gelosia e sen [...]

    Ya desde las primeras p ginas uno se encuentra con el esp ritu de la novela que se mantiene hasta el final Un genial modo de escribir, particular y cuidado un aire de poca logrado y un protagonista con el cual es imposible identificarse pero de todos modos nunca se pierde el inter s en sus andanzas Con cierta resignaci n a vivir, parece seguir adelante alimentado por la b squeda y la espera de algo que ni l est completamente seguro La espera de su esposa, de un ascenso, de reconocimiento o de mu [...]
