Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Oral history collected from Mexican students, workers, parents, professors, maids, soldiers, government workers, and others in Mexican society who witnessed and felt the effects of the tragic events during October 1968. "No bastaba una sola voz, por dolida y sincera que fuese, para dar el sonido, la significacion, la dimension misma de los tragicos dias vividos por muchos mexicanos en octubre de 1968. Elena Poniatowska se dedico, pues, a oir las multiples voces de los protagonistas--indiferentes, solidarias, quejumbrosas o airadas--y compuso este enorme testimonio colectivo, que, a la manera de un coro plural, da la relacion de los hechos. Desde cualquier punto de vista o posicion que adopte ante lo sucedido en esos dias, el lector sentira que esta obra de algun modo le concierne y lo reclama. Estudiantes, obreros, padres y madres de familia, profesores, empleados, soldados y hombres de Estado, en fin, diversos componentes de la sociedad mexicana, aportan su modo de ver, sentir y considerar los acontecimientos. No se trata de emitir un juicio general, sino de recoger la experiencia misma y su reflejo en la memoria de muchos. Los testimonios fueron fielmente transcritos: las palabras vibran en la pagina con su textura y su tono oral. Este es un libro que sera oido mas que leido. Un libro que no podemos dejar de oir."--Back cover.… (more)
