Summary
  • "Una renovada visi<U+00d4>on de la esclavitud donde se mezclan leyenda y realidad y que oculta una historia universal: la de la lucha por escapar al propio destino. Cora es una joven esclava de una plantaci<U+00d4>on de algod<U+00d4>on en Georgia. Abandonada por su madre, vive sometida a la crueldad de sus amos. Cuando C<U+00d4>esar, un joven de Virginia, le habla del ferrocarril subterr<U+00d4>aneo, ambos deciden iniciar una arriesgada huida hacia el Norte para conseguir la libertad. El ferrocarril subterr<U+00d4>aneo convierte en realidad una f<U+00d4>abula de la <U+00d4>epoca e imagina una verdadera red de estaciones clandestinas unidas por ra<U+00d4>iles subterr<U+00d4>aneos que cruzan el pa<U+00d4>is. En su huida, Cora recorrer<U+00d4>a los diferentes estados, y en cada parada se encontrar<U+00d4>a un mundo completamente diferente, mientras acumula decepciones en el transcurso de una bajada a los infiernos de la condici<U+00d4>on humana... Aun as<U+00d4>i, tambi<U+00d4>en habr<U+00d4>a destellos de humanidad que le har<U+00d4>an mantener la esperanza. Whitehead nos brinda una historia universal, on<U+00d4>irica y a la vez brutalmente realista, sobre la libertad y las ilusiones truncadas, que nos habla de la fuerza sobrehumana que emerge ante la determinaci<U+00d4>on de cambiar el propio destino."--Amazon.com
  • "Cora is a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia. Life is hell for all the slaves, but especially bad for Cora; an outcast even among her fellow Africans, she is coming into womanhood-- where even greater pain awaits. When Caesar, a recent arrival from Virginia, tells her about the Underground Railroad, they decide to take a terrifying risk and escape. Matters do not go as planned-- Cora kills a young white boy who tries to capture her. Though they manage to find a station and head north, they are being hunted. In Whitehead's ingenious conception, the Underground Railroad is no mere metaphor-- engineers and conductors operate a secret network of tracks and tunnels beneath the Southern soil. Cora and Caesar's first stop is South Carolina, in a city that initially seems like a haven. But the city's placid surface masks an insidious scheme designed for its black denizens. And even worse: Ridgeway, the relentless slave catcher, is close on their heels. Forced to flee again, Cora embarks on a harrowing flight, state by state, seeking true freedom. Like the protagonist of Gulliver's Travels, Cora encounters different worlds at each stage of her journey-- hers is an odyssey through time as well as space. As Whitehead brilliantly re-creates the unique terrors for black people in the pre-Civil War era, his narrative seamlessly weaves the saga of America from the brutal importation of Africans to the unfulfilled promises of the present day. [This book] is at once a kinetic adventure tale of one woman's ferocious will to escape the horrors of bondage and a shattering, powerful meditation on the history we all share."--Amazon.com
