 El último príncipe del Imperio mexicano - lectura de un extracto del primer capítulo "La consentida de Rosedale" | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 558

C.M. Mayo lee un extracto de la novela El último príncipe del Imperio mexicano, traducida por el novelista y poeta Agustín Cadena (Random House-Mondadori, septiembre 2010). El último príncipe del Imperio mexicano es una novela histórica sobre el breve, trágico y a veces surrealista reinado del emperador Maximiliano y su corte. Mientras al otro lado de la frontera se desataba el fragor de la Guerra Civil, un grupúsculo del clero y conservadores mexicanos en exilio convenció a Luis Napoleón de invadir México e instalar al archiduque de Austria, Maximiliano de Habsburgo, como emperador. Un año más tarde y no teniendo hijos, Maximiliano asumió la custodia y educación del príncipe Agustín de Iturbide y Green, de dos años de edad y mitad norteamericano, convertiéndolo en el heredero del trono.La reluctancia de Maximiliano para devolver el niño a sus afligados padres, incluso cuando ya el Imperio se tambaleaba y la emperatriz Carlota se precipitaba en la locura, provocó un escándalo internacional. Esta fastuosa épica se halla basada en la historia real y viene a iluminar tanto las raíces culturales de México como el desarrollo político de las Américas. Pero lo que la hace más cautivadora es la profundidad de la escritura de Mayo y su conocimiento de las presiones e influencias que desempeñaron un papel sobre estos, demasiado humanos, personajes. Su prosa lleva al lector a sentir México: el sabor de la comida, el olor de las especias y las flores, el calor. Mayo escribe para los sentidos, y para todas las épocas. El último príncipe del Imperio Mexicano es una historia al mismo tiempo arrolladora e íntima, una historia sobre la geopolítica, el glamour de la realeza y las jerarquías militares, sobre la arrogancia del poder, los oscuros laberintos de la ambición y, sobre todo, la historia de un niño que al final no fue un príncipe sino un pequeño que pertenecía a sus padres. www.cmmayo.com/espanol.html
