By Gustave Flaubert
Los mejores libros jamás escritos.
Verdadera enciclopedia de l. a. estupidez humana y retrato sangrante y bilioso de los angeles burguesía en estado puro, Bouvard y Pécuchet inaugura de algún modo l. a. literatura del siglo XX.
La más entretenida e hilarante farsa filosófica de l. a. historia, novela póstuma (1881) y quijotesco testamento de Gustave Flaubert, nos cuenta las andanzas de Bouvard y Pécuchet, dos almas gemelas reunidas por el azar. Una herencia y el sueño de un retiro contemplativo donde cultivar l. a. sabiduría harán que se abismen en todas las áreas del conocimiento humano #de l. a. jardinería al teatro, de l. a. medicina a los angeles religión#, para encontrar en todas ellas solo escepticismo y desazón.
Firma l. a. espléndida introducción Jordi Llovet, sutil conocedor de todo lo que rodea al ermitaño de Croisset, y también reúne aquí, dándole a su edición un carácter único, los materiales que preparó el propio Flaubert para l. a. segunda parte (inacabada) de los angeles novela: el «Estupidiario», el «Diccionario de rules corrientes» o los angeles imposible colección de citas, entre otros textos.
«¡Pensándolo bien, es una buena inspiration! ¡Dios mío, pues sí! ¿Por qué no?»
Raymond Queneau dijo...
«Bouvard y Pécuchet es una odisea. l. a. literatura profana, es decir, l. a. verdadera, empieza con Homero, y cualquier gran obra es una Ilíada o una Odisea [...] Satiricón, laDivina Comedia,Pantagruel, elQuijote y, cómo no, elUlises (donde se reconoce l. a. influencia directa deBouvard y Pécuchet) son odiseas, esto es, relatos de tiempo cerrado. Lasilíadas, por el contrario, van en busca del tiempo perdido: ante Troya, en una isla desierta o en casa de losGuermantes.»
