Overview
"Prosa hecha de aire, sin peso ni cuerpo pero que sopla con impetu y levanta en nuestras mentes bandadas de imagenes y visiones, vaso comunicante entre los ritmos callejeros de la ciudad y el soliloquio del poeta." Octavio Paz "Contranovela," "cronica de una locura," "el agujero negro de un enorme embudo," "un feroz sacudon por las solapas," "un grito de alerta," "una especie de bomba atomica," "una llamada al desorden necesario," "una gigantesca humorada," "un balbuceo..". Con estas y otras expresiones se aludio a Rayuela, la novela que Julio Cortazar comenzo a sonar en 1958, se publico en 1963 y a partir de entonces cambio la historia de la literatura asi como sacudio la vida de miles de jovenes en todo el mundo. Plena de ambicion literaria y vital, renovadora de las herramientas narrativas, destructora de lo establecido y buscadora de la raiz de la poesia, durante todas estas decadas Rayuela siguio siendo leida con curiosidad, asombro, interes o devocion. Llega a los lectores hoy, en su aniversario numero 50, acompanada de un apendice donde Cortazar mismo cuenta la historia del libro que busco el mas alla de todas las fronteras.

These are just some of the expressions that have been used to refer to Rayuela, the novel Julio Cortazar began to dream up in 1958 and published in 1963, Rayuela's arrival had a profound impact on the cultural scene of its time, jolted readers worldwide, and triggered a true revolution in Spanish-language fiction changing the course of literature. Even after five decades, it is avidly read by new and devoted fans.
