Read full description of the books Otra vez el mar:

Después de la publicación de El color del verano, Celestino antes del alba y El palacio de las blanquísimas mofetas (Andanzas 357, 395 y 428), le llega el turno a Otra vez el mar, cuarto título de la «pentagonía» de Reinaldo Arenas, esa exaltación de la libertad y el triunfo de la escritura por encima de toda suerte de represión, que presentamos a nuestros lectores siguiendo la revisión hecha por el propio autor sobre el texto publicado en 1982. Dividida en dos partes, Otra vez el mar tiene como protagonista a un joven matrimonio que consigue un permiso para pasar unos días en un lugar de veraneo. La narración transita mediante dos voces. La primera es la de una mujer anónima, temerosa de perder a su marido, Héctor, frustrada por la carga de la maternidad e incapaz de soportar la sociedad cubana bajo el sistema comunista. Sus pensamientos, entrelazados con lo cotidiano, revelan su tormento y el doloroso amor que siente por su marido, de quien sospecha que le es infiel, sobre todo cuando un hermoso y taciturno adolescente se instala con su locuaz madre en el apartamento contiguo. En la segunda parte es la voz de Héctor, poeta y revolucionario desencantado, la que de una forma alegórica nos habla de la vida cubana y de sí mismo. Arenas expresa así las frustraciones y la añoranza de la libertad de esos dos seres y, página a página, ilumina al lector en el laberinto de insatisfacciones y anhelos de la pareja.

Read information about the author

Ebook Otra vez el mar read Online! Arenas was born in the countryside, in the northern part of the Province of Oriente, Cuba, and later moved to the city of Holguín. In 1963, he moved to Havana to enroll in the School of Planification and, later, in the Faculty of Letters at the Universidad de La Habana, where he studied philosophy and literature without completing a degree. The following year, he began working at the Biblioteca Nacional José Martí. While there, his talent was noticed and he was awarded prizes at Cirilo Villaverde National Competition held by UNEAC (National Union of Cuban Writers and Artists). His Hallucinations was awarded "first Honorable Mention" in 1966 although, as the judges could find no better entry, no First Prize was awarded that year.

His writings and openly gay lifestyle were, by 1967, bringing him into conflict with the Communist government. He left the Biblioteca Nacional and became an editor for the Cuban Book Institute until 1968. From 1968 to 1974 he was a journalist and editor for the literary magazine La Gaceta de Cuba. In 1973, he was sent to prison after being charged and convicted of 'ideological deviation' and for publishing abroad without official consent. He escaped from prison and tried to leave Cuba by launching himself from the shore on a tire inner tube. The attempt failed and he was rearrested near Lenin Park and imprisoned at the notorious El Morro Castle alongside murderers and rapists. He survived by helping the inmates to write letters to wives and lovers. He was able to collect enough paper this way to continue his writing. However, his attempts to smuggle his work out of prison were discovered and he was severely punished. Threatened with death, he was forced to renounce his work and was released in 1976. In 1980, as part of the Mariel Boatlift, he fled to the United States. He came on the boat San Lazaro captained by Cuban immigrant Roberto Aguero.
