Las ciudades invisibles (Biblioteca Calvino) (Spanish by Italo Calvino,Aurora Bernárdez

By Italo Calvino,Aurora Bernárdez

Las ciudades invisibles se presentan como una serie de relatos de viaje que Marco Polo hace a Kublai Kan, emperador de los tártaros... A este emperador melancólico que ha comprendido que su ilimitado poder poco cuenta en un mundo que marcha hacia l. a. ruina, un viajero imaginario le habla de ciudades imposibles, por ejemplo una ciudad microscópica que va ensanchándose y termina formada por muchas ciudades concéntricas en expansión, una ciudad telaraña suspendida sobre un abismo, o una ciudad bidimensional como Moriana... Creo que lo que el libro evoca no es sólo una notion atemporal de los angeles ciudad, sino que desarrolla, de manera unas veces implícita y otras explícita, una discusión sobre los angeles ciudad moderna... Creo haber escrito algo como un último poema de amor a las ciudades, cuando es cada vez más difícil vivirlas como ciudades.Italo calvino
