El cementerio de Praga The Prague cemetery (Spanish by Umberto Eco

By Umberto Eco

Estamos en marzo de 1897, en París, espiando desde las primeras páginas de esta magnífica novela a un hombre de sesenta y siete años que escribe sentado a una mesa, en una habitación abarrotada de muebles: he aquí al capitán Simonini, un piamontés afincado en los angeles capital francesa, que desde muy joven se dedica al noble arte de crear documentos falsos.

Hombre de pocas palabras, misógino y glotón impenitente, el capitán se inspira en los folletines de Dumas y Sue para dar fe de complots inexistentes, fomentar intrigas o difamar a las grandes figuras de los angeles política europea. Caballero sin escrúpulos, Simonini trabaja al servicio del mejor postor: si antes fue el gobierno italiano quien pagó por sus imposturas, luego llegaron los encargos de Francia y Prusia, e incluso Hitler acabaría aprovechándose de sus malvados oficios.

Treinta años después de publicar El nombre de los angeles rosa, Umberto Eco vuelve para mostrarnos que en los angeles literatura y en l. a. vida, nada es lo que parece y nadie es quien realmente cube ser: todo es según convenga, y quien triunfa, ahora y siempre, es el rufián que desconfía de todos y se mantiene alerta, aunque no se mueva casi de esa mesa donde lo vimos al principio, cuando quizá no sabíamos que Simonini y los hombres como él aun están aquí, entre nosotros, y han venido para quedarse.

"Una novela donde todos los personajes, excepto el protagonista, existieron realmente. Es más: algunos de ellos están todavía aquí, entre nosotros#"
Umberto Eco
