9780140100112: Leopoldina's Dream

SILVINA OCAMPO WRITES IN A STYLE THAT HAS BEEN RECOGNIZED BY JORGE LUIS BORGES AND ITALO CALVINO AS ONE OF THE FINEST IN THE SPANISH LANGUAGE. HER STORIES WRITTEN WITH A DECEPTIVE SIMPLICITY, ARE AMONG THE MOST DISTURBING AND FASCINATING A READER CAN HOPE TO ENCOUNTER. MANY ARE ABOUT THE UNEASY CONJUNCTION OF OPPOSITES; OF EVIL AND SAINTLINESS, LOVE AND HATE, THE DIFFICULT WORLD OF CHILDHOOD AND THE DANGEROUSLY SIMPLE WORLD OF ADULTS. BORGES, WHO IS PROVIDING A PREFACE TO THIS COLLECTION, AS WRITTEN THAT THE CRUELTY OF HER STORIES IS NO DOUBT THE RESULT OF HER NOBILITY OF SOUL, A JUDGEMENT NO LESS PARADOXICAL THAN HER OWN WRITING.
