published posthumously Although I have liked everything else I have read by the author, this book did not hold together for me.Consider the framing device The narrator Carlos Fuentes is standing on a balcony at his hotel On the adjacent balcony is a man who looks like and who claims to be Friedrich Nietzsche Apparently, he is allowed an Eternal Return for a limited time once each year The book is ostensibly a study of political revolutions, closely approximating the events of the French Revolution Why is Nietzsche selected, however, as an expert on the subject of revolution He was certainly not an expert on the subject during his lifetime, and his Germany is perhaps better known for altogether suppressing revolutions.There are parts that are interesting, and Fuentes had not lost his touch of inventing interesting characters But the overall impact Somewhat lame This is one of the most disturbing books I ve ever read The thoroughly unpleasant 19th century philosopher Nietzscheor less invented nihilism, and formulated a theory of power of the will that was seized upon by the Nazis, among others In this book, he appears on the balcony next to that of the fictional author, and

disturbing books I ve ever read The thoroughly unpleasant 19th century philosopher Nietzscheor less invented nihilism, and formulated a theory of power of the will that was seized upon by the Nazis, among others In this book, he appears on the balcony next to that of the fictional author, and the two of them exchange banter about a revolution that is taking place in the unnamed city below them They tell each other stories They discuss each story in light of Nietzsche s philosophy They speak of the leaders of the revolution, and the leaders relationships to each other telling the tales mostly through conversations that sometimes appear anonymous it s difficult to tell exactly who is speaking, and that may be the real author s point these leaders often blend into a single entity, seeking what is best for the people or for the revolution or for the country, but always misidentifying it Their stories begin with cruelty and deviant behavior and grow stranger as the revolution proceeds The revolution itself becomes a character, or rather, a monster in the end, it consumes them and finally, itself The author seems to be saying that any politics based on nihilism must inevitably crumble under its own existential, or other horror To be fair, there wasto Nietzsche than nastiness a love of music as an escape from the dreadfulness of life, for example but in having one of the characters be particularly enad of Wagner, the author reminds us that Hitler liked Wagner too All in all, on the surface, this appears to be a book about philosophy, but it is really a story about horror and unspeakable atrocities Steven E Scribner, author of the Tond series fantasy Federico ha muerto Lo dice Dios Creo que Carlos Fuentes nos presenta en Federico en su balc n una propuesta

la historia, el poder y la sociedad del M xico presente, y que lo llevaron a numerosos reconocimientos literarios a trav s del mundo Es un placer abrir un libro de Fuentes y ser sorprendida por una narrativa muy diferente a todo lo dem s que previamente hayas le do de l Sin embargo, no recomiendo este libro como la primera lectura de este autor a quienes est n buscando introducirse en este gran representante del boom latinoamericano A nuevos lectores recomendaria mas buscar La regi n m s transparente, La muerte de Artemio Cruz o Aura por nombrar algunas de sus grandes obras representativas

of revolution Artists Can t shoot em, I guess.In any case, a high tolerance for ambiguity is recommended It is passionately written, as all Fuentes is It is also the last Fuentes, and we should be grateful we have it rather than nothing At a certain point we who are raised up in that poststructuralist wing of the Liberal Arts Inc compound become accustomed to the sentiment expressed especially by the students of Derrida that all that which relates to human enterprise, even maybe especially that which would not at first seem so, is text All is text Try exclaiming this to a positivist Prepare

gently into that neutral night This is a novel written by Fuentes along with Fuentes The work of the artist is always in some sense a taking counsel with self Only one of the Fuentes machines is also basically Friedrich Nietzsche A Friedrich Nietzsche, not THE Friedrich Nietzsche Or a panoply of Friedrich Nietzsche functions that are also half of the Carlos Fuentes meditating and mediating this text into existence Fuentes Fuentes Nietzsche is both commenting upon and generating an edifice of fiction, and we do have to consider that maybe if everything is text everything is also fiction Certainly everything in your fiction becomes fiction when you are writing fiction, but let s not get dizzy w tautologies Fuentes Fuentes Nietzsche are amassing a series of fictional narrative blocks around an engagement w a subject very, very dear to Latin American fiction revolution Because of the bifurcated author function and its role as a sometimes irritating Greek chorus, often po mo self reflexive the fact that this is all in service to a book entitled NIETZSCHE ON HIS BALCONY is explicitly addressed , we are invited to think of this book as text about generating text which you don t necessarily only do in a book Fuentes Nietzsche doesn t really coincide w the Nietzsche I personally carry around w me and boy do I ever , but I appreciate the point, and I do actually love what Fuentes Nietzsche lays down in the bravura closing threnody This is a novel about novels and artists More than novels, then A novel about text Text as broadly defined as you are willing to countenance

his balcony Is Nietzsche just a projection of his interlocutor Is the interlocutor Fuentes Are the two main protagonists just alter egos of all of their characters The Nietzsche character doesn t seem to really be purely Nietzsche Was that intentional I think that the answer to all of these questions is a definite maybe Or sometimes yes, sometimes no.In some sense I think that we are supposed to believe that history is cyclical, but sometimes not On one level Mendes, Dante and Azar are Marat, Danton and Robespierre and the general at the end is Napoleon, but on another level they are their own unique individual characters Maybe the repetition of history islike Marx famously suggested in The 18th Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce I don t know But the I don t knowness that I consistently experienced in reading this book was part of what made it fun.I was initially unhappy with the female characters, who all seem to be different aspects of the same person, who is at once whore, mother and saint It seemed very one dimensional, but then when I considered the male characters, I saw that they are also all archetypes who blend into each other, so that they are really no different in this regard than the women At that point I just let myself accept it as part of the style and began to enjoy the book.I liked the portrayal of revolution It rises up out of the frustration and explosion of the people, but then depends on the political leaders to carry if forward The leaders go through phases, first the messiah, then then the rationalist, then the moralist, then the general and the corrupt politician who restore something like the ancien regime The revlotionary leaders are each doomed to fail and die in turn as it is impossible for the revolution to be sustained or kept pure So why have a revolution at all It s just part of the inevitable cyclical nature of history We don t have a choice And yet, fruitless though it may be, you can t help getting sucked into the energy, the hope, the promise of liberation, even if all inevitably turns out false Novela bastante complicada y reflexiva La historia no empieza a agarrar forma si no hasta casi la mitad del libro, pero en t rminos generales se puede describir como una conversaci n filos fica entre el autor, Carlos Fuentes y el fil sofo Federico Nietzsche en la que se entrelaza una historia que involucra una revoluci n que sirve como ejemplificaci n de varios conceptos tocados en la conversaci n.La novela es incre blemente densa, pero una vez que le agarras

como una conversaci n filos fica entre el autor, Carlos Fuentes y el fil sofo Federico Nietzsche en la que se entrelaza una historia que involucra una revoluci n que sirve como ejemplificaci n de varios conceptos tocados en la conversaci n.La novela es incre blemente densa, pero una vez que le agarras el ritmo se vuelve dif cil de dejar, eso s hay varios puntos de esta novela que no me gustaron El primero es que si no has le do y no est s familiarizado con la vida y obra de Nietzsche muchas referencias las vas a perder, por lo que creo que leer la obra de Nietzsche es primordial antes de leer este libro Y lo mismo se puede decir de la obra de Fuentes, pues aunque no hay una referencia a su obra, definitivamente la hay en su pensamiento por lo que no lo recomendar a como una obra para conocer al autor.El segundo es que a pesar de no ser un libro extenso, la trama se maneja en muchos niveles con personajes muy variados pero en particular la historia de la ni a tiene episodios muy perturbadores No es un libro que se puede leer de manera casual pues uno puede perderse con facilidad, y la verdad es que llega a ser bastante tedioso Al final la historia agarra claridad y me gust bastante, pero llegaste a ese punto puede ser un poco desesperante.Si buscas una novela que te plante un desaf o, creo que est ofrece un buen reto sin ser abrumadora Si buscas algo ligero y digeribles, definitivamente no lo vas a disfrutar Recomendado para lectores experimentados y familiarizados con la obra de Nietzsche y Fuentes quienes gusten de obras complejas y diseccionar los textos en busca de referencias The light of dawn is breaking over the impressive balconies of the Hotel Metropol as two legends, Friedrich Nietzsche and Leonardo Loredan, exchange thoughts on power, love, justice, and loyalty The year could beor , and the country suffers the ravages of the revolution that has overturned a perfect dictatorship Leonardo and Friedrich watch the mob pass by, mindful of the endless spiral of violence it represents and thinking that, perhaps, the horror will never end Federico en su balcon is a testimony to Fuentes literary triumph A definitive lesson on what he stood for, and will continue to represent, as a writer It is also a verbal self portrait where the storyteller is multiplied in his characters to create the spiritual and philosophical contradictions that breathed in his soul a dialogue that opens the door to interrogations without attempting to provide decisive answers Carlos Nietzche ha hablado Revoluci n, una palabra permea todo el relato, no lo mejor de Fuentes, s genial para ser su ltimo publicado , la gran soluci n para exterminar la opresi n y rapacidad de las lites, pero claro, siempre se comer a sus hijos Ah comienza el
