Crónicas de Bustos Domecq by Jorge Luis Borges, Adolfo Bioy Casares

By Jorge Luis Borges, Adolfo Bioy Casares

Un poco a los angeles manera de Carlyle, cuyo ‘Sartor Resartus’ (‘Sastre zurcido’) expone l. a. doctrina de un filósofo imaginario y los angeles ilustra con ejemplos apócrifos, H. Bustos Domecq dedica este volumen a los angeles discusión imparcial de literatos, de escultores, de arquitectos, de gastrónomos y de pintores que, por el momento, no existen, pero que son peligrosamente posibles, dadas las propensiones de l. a. época. El tono es humorístico, según lo impone todo examen severo de las manifestaciones más novedosas del arte y de las letras durante los últimos sesenta años. Veinte crónicas, casi todas de índole narrativa, integran este libro amenísimo, que satiriza lo universalmente consagrado, respetado, adulado y temido: es decir, lo moderno. En el desorientado siglo que corre, l. a. ignorancia y l. a. inepcia son infatigablemente inventivas; nos consta que H. Bustos Domecq ha debido espolear a su Pegaso para que l. a. realidad no lo deje atrás. Según lo señala el prólogo que avalora Gervasio Montenegro, estas impares ‘Crónicas’ constituyen el vademécum critical para el curioso que quiera echar una ojeada sobre el conjunto panorámico de l. a. estética en boga. Su redacción jocosa, apunta agudamente «ex cathedra» el profesor adjunto Longino, no excluye el pensamiento serio. Encarnados en l. a. figura de un «egoísta, tránsfuga, mentiroso, fanfarrón y casanova barato», según l. a. descripción de sus ilustres padres, Borges y Bioy Casares crean en estas páginas un fascinante juego de ficciones y espejos que lleva los angeles parodia hasta sus últimas consecuencias.
