Aug 11, illy rated it it was amazing Shelves: A concise yet compelling book comprises the imaginary love letters sent by the Russian painter Angelina Beloff, at the time exiled in Paris, to her former husband Diego Rivera, who was residing in Mexico.
The reader sadly witnesses how her letters remain unanswered. Elena Poniatowska remarkably managed to convey the emotions of a great artist who is ultimately a woman reduced to suffering. Nov 30, Sharice rated it it was ok. A -very - short book written from the point of view, via letters to Mexico, of Diego Rivera's first wife of 10 years and the mother of his first child.
Angelina Beloff was a young Russian artist who met Rivera in Paris; they were separated when he returned to Mexico and they could not afford two tickets.
Their son died in infancy. Although Beloff eventually did settle in Mexico, they never saw each other again. A sad story full of regrets by a fine Mexican author. This is another of those books I think anyone who writes ought to take a look at.
Of course I only read the translation, but it was still lovely. It's written as a series of letters to Diego Rivera as the protagonist remembers their romance and tries to come to terms with his desertion of their small family. This woman is all but forgotten in the publicity of his more famous relationships and I loved that Poniatowska was able to bring her to life.
Oct 18, Susy rated it really liked it. Good to read when you are feeling melancholic or maybe not good to read if you are feeling melancholic. Like most books, it came at a time I could savor it most. Although the letters are fictional, Poniastowska does an excellent job at giving us a glimpse of a woman whose mostly been erased by history. Oct 05, Francisco Aguirre rated it really liked it.
This book is my very first experience with Poniatowska, I had never read anything from her before and all what I can say is that I loved it!. I really linked this book is it really a book?
It is pretty sad but also beautiful. She is one of my favorite authors. I read one of her short stories once and fell in love her writing. She has a way of drawing you in then turning your emotional insides out. I'm loving this book right now I need to find it Spanish so I can feel the full effect of her words. Mar 30, Kassel Garibay rated it it was ok.
When I heard what this book was about I was instantly motivated to take it out of the library. I started reading it and, well. I felt bored. The story was good, I must say, but is was so slow, it didn't catch me. Feb 25, Jonathan rated it it was ok. This Elena Poniatowska novella short story?
I just don't even know was actually kind of bad. The idea is that the letters are written to Diego Rivera from his first wife, Angelina Beloff, but it's puzzling because Poniatowska chooses to fictionalize the letters. Sep 08, Robert Stout rated it really liked it. A charming novela plus pp. Poniatowska does an excellent job of presenting Diego Rivera's long-time companion as a devoted, sentimental, talented woman through imaginary letters she writes to her former lover.
Apr 23, Amylizzybeth rated it it was amazing. Elena Poniastowska uses this epistolary novel to manifest the mind of a woman who lost her lover. I felt so connected to Quiela by the end of the book.
View 2 comments. Aug 02, Gisela rated it liked it. Short but powerful and full of passion. The story of Diego Rivera's first wife, told in letter. Sep 23, Maribel Favela added it. Difficult to say if an artist becomes a monster or a monster becomes an artist.
The intense life of Diego Rivera and the woman who loved him in spite of himself. A short story but worth reading. You really hate Diego River after reading this. Small, beautiful, and full of emotion. Feb 15, Jackier added it. My heart broke for her. The longing and waiting for her love. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Readers also enjoyed. About Elena Poniatowska. Elena Poniatowska. Her father was French of Polish ancestry and her mother a Mexican who was raised in France.
She grew up speaking French and learned English in a private British school. However, her knowledge of Spanish came from talking with the maids, so her written Spanish was largely colloquial. Poniatowska developed ties with the Mexican lower class in her youth and thus gained a sense of belonging to and an understanding of the Mexican culture.
She felt and thought of herself as completely Mexican and of Spanish as her native language. Her works include characters who belong to the underprivileged classes, and she often gave voice to the powerless of her country.
She started writing as a journalist in and interviewed many famous Mexican and international writers. Besides her famous interviews, she also wrote several novels, short stories, chronicles, plays, and poems. Ponistowska's skill as a novelist was her ability to combine fact with fiction.
