Read full description of the books:



Aldous Huxley a scris Cintec de lebada in 1939, dupa ce a parasit Anglia, stabilindu-se in California. Cartea reprezinta critica autorului la adresa culturii americane a vremii lui, cu narcisismul, superficialitatea si obsesia pentru tinerete pe care le observa peste tot in jur. Jo Stoyte, protagonistul, un milionar californian obsedat de apropierea mortii, afla de existenta unui nobil englez care a descoperit o modalitate de a-si prelungi viata. Stoyte calatoreste in Anglia si il intilneste pe longevivul nobil, care insa pare sa-si fi pierdut, de-a lungul timpului, firea umana, preschimbindu-se intr-o faptura simiana. Acest lucru nu schimba cu nimic decizia milionarului de a ocoli moartea cu orice pret.

„Iata o carte fantastica, extravaganta, innebunitoare si revoltatoare in acelasi timp. Este o carte cum numai Huxley poate scrie, un roman unde intimplarile extraordinare se impletesc cu eseul contemplativ, iar povestea este mai atragatoare ca oricind.” (The New York Times)

„Ironia eleganta pe care Huxley o pune in joc, subtilitatea cinica, revelatiile si momentele pline de ingenuitate cu care-si surprinde cititorul ne arata ca avem de-a face cu un adevarat maestru al scriiturii. Mai bine de atit nu se poate.” (London Times LiterarySupplement)

„Cintec de lebada are darul de a-si tine cititorul cu rasuflarea taiata de la primul pina la ultimul rind. Nimic nu e lasat la voia intimplarii.” (The New Yorker)
