Antitauromaquia (Spanish Edition) by Manuel Vicent,El Roto

By Manuel Vicent,El Roto

El escritor Manuel Vicent y el ilustrador El Roto embisten contra una costumbre que despierta pasión y odio por igual en este alegato antitaurino.

Esta Antitauromaquia es algo más que una diatriba contra l. a. fiesta nacional. los angeles costumbre primitiva de sacrificar toros en público y convertir esa muerte en una ceremonia ethical ha perdido ya toda su estética. los angeles corrida ha quedado solo en un residuo de aquella España negra, zaragatera y triste en l. a. que los angeles crueldad con los animales no se distinguía de los angeles violencia social y política. El espectáculo de los angeles muerte festiva de un toro supone una agresión a l. a. sensibilidad humana.

Este es un alegato contra todos los tipos de violencia que se expresan en l. a. fiesta taurina, una liturgia de l. a. tortura que algunos pretenden elevar todavía al rango de cultura porque creen que en España o eres toro o eres matador. Esta Antitauromaquiaes un aviso para que no te toreen.

Reseñas:
«Su gusto por el detalle no disminuye los angeles contundencia gráfica. Cuando Vicent habla de algo lo ofrece abierto en l. a. mesa de quirófano.»
David Trueba, Babelia

«El Roto tiene una eterna capacidad de señalar el punto más weak de nuestra sociedad, de acertar siempre con sus demoledoras críticas.»
