Read full description of the books:





Terminé este libro hace dos semanas y decidí no escribir mi opinión inmediatamente, con el propósito de digerirlo y asimilarlo. Es un libro estupendo, lleno, vibrante, sobre la vida y la época de la Modotti, sobre el México de principios de siglo (que conserva muchas similitudes con el actual) y sobre el amor. Es una biografía de la fotográfa italiana, pero también una biografía de México visto desde los ojos de un extranjero, si se considera que la autora, a pesar de haberse criado en México, era hija de extranjero y nació fuera. Sin embargo, eso le da una fuerza importante al libro, porque podemos ver la historia a través de un lente doble: un extranjero que se enamora de México y esa fuerza lo hace comprender la realidad del país.

Lo que más disfruté de libro fueron las descripciones de esa ciudad de México que tantas veces he caminando, que descubro cada día: cada esquina llena de historia, de pasado, de tragedia. La calle en donde Tina perdió a Mella, la casa en donde se ubicaba el pequeño estudio de ella y Weston en lo que ahora es Condesa, la última casa que compartió con Vitorio, y desde la cual aún veía claramente ambos volcanes. Tina amó y sufrió en México, y a pesar que al final, sus años en Europa acabaron todas sus ilusiones y ella misma sintió ya no pertenecer, resulta obvio que el país la hizo vibrar. Aquí, no sólo Tina conoció al amor de su vida, sino también se convirtió en una artista.

Hay pasajes conmovedores, iniciando por la pérdida de Mella, hasta las exposiciones que Weston y Modotti muestran juntos alabando a los campesinos y trabajadores mexicanos, hasta cuando un tímido Alvarez Bravo se acerca a ella en sus primeras incursiones como fotográfo.

Quizá la única parte que se siente pesada es toda la relativa a la Guerra Española, pero aunque no me gustó, tiene una lógica: Poniatowska plasma una guerra que destruyó a una nación pero que también destruyó a Tina: nunca volvería a ser la mujer coqueta, artística, libre. Pero lo que ella fue, lo que hizo, jamás la olvidaría a ella, ni nos permitirá olvidarla, a Tinísima.

Read information about the author

Ebook Tinisima read Online! Hélène Elizabeth Louise Amélie Paula Dolores Poniatowska Amor was born on May 19, 1933, in Paris, France. Her father was French of Polish ancestry and her mother a Mexican who was raised in France. When she was nine Poniatowska's family moved to México City. 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 1954 and interviewed many famous Mexican and international writers. Many of these interviews can be found in her Palabras Cruzadas (1961; Crossed Words) and later in her Todo México (1990; All of Mexico). Besides her famous interviews, she also wrote several novels, short stories, chronicles, plays, and poems.

Among her novels are Hasta no verte, Jesús mío (1969; Until I see You, My Jesus), which earned her the Mazatlan Prize; Querido Diego, te abraza Quiela (1978; Dear Diego, love Quiela); La "Flor de Lis" (1988; The "Flower of the Lily"); and Tinísima (1992; Tinisima). Other narratives include Lilus Kikus (1954; Lilus Kikus; later an expanded edition appeared as Los cuentos [The Accounts] de Lilus Kikus in 1967); De noche vienes (1979; You Come at Night); Ay vida no me mereces (1985; Life, You Don't Deserve Me); Domingo 7 (1982; Seventh Sunday); Gaby Brimmer (1979; Gaby Brimmer); Todo empezó el domingo (1963; Everything Started on Sunday); and El último guajolote (1982; The Last Turkey).

Her chronicle La noche de Tlatelolco (1971; Massacre in Mexico) earned her the Javier Villarrutia Prize. She refused to accept it because she did not want to identify herself with then-President Echeverría's political establishment. Other chronicles include Fuerte es el silencio (1980; Silence Is Strong), and Nada, nadie: las voces del temblor (1988; Nothing, Nobody: The Voices of the Earthquake).

In theater, her play Melés y Teleo (1956; Melés and Teleo) uses a word game in the title, meaning "you read to me and I read to you." Finally, her poetry can be found in the Spanish publications Rojo de vida y negro de muerte, Estaciones, and Abside.

Ponistowska's skill as a novelist was her ability to combine fact with fiction. She lent her voice to the voiceless, but at the same time she took a step back and let the victims come forward to express their needs and pain, letting the Mexican people speak through her. Her settings were mostly in Mexico, and her characters were either Mexicans or people such as Angelina Beloff (Querido Diego, te abraza Quiela) or Tina Modotti (Tinísima) who lived important passages of their lives in Mexico. Many of her female characters are at the mercy of men. Their lives are ruled by a world made up of double standards. They try to do the right thing, but in the end they lose the men they loved and for whom they sacrificed. It is clear then that these women are never really appreciated.

Poniatowska had a great affinity with women and liked to write about them. But she also was interested in the poor, the weak, the street children, and the powerless. Interviewing the common people of Mexico became her trademark. After her first publication (Lilus Kikus, 1954), her writings became more and more political. For example, in Querido Diego (1978) Quiela's story is completely personal. It focuses upon her and her lover, the famous painter Diego Rivera. By comparison, in Tinísima (1992) Poniatowska reveals not just Modotti's emotional life but also her professional and political life as a communist.

However, Poniatowska's style often made it difficult fo
