En resumidas cuentas, si algo prevalece en la literatura de Rulfo es esa sencillez que al mismo tiempo es tan humilde como deslumbrante. No importa si el cuento se narra en primera o tercera persona.

And it is precisely that quality, that of timelessness, which best describes the setting which pervades throughout these incendiary vignettes.

Those open to the many facets of the human heart. This short story collection’s primal bleakness, savagery, rumbled within. Hazemat gear in toe I pried open the book and stood back. My hand burnt, cracked the pain oozing upward, outward, I stared dertumbe the sparse simple prose. A style any writer might be proud of to cover many examples of a staid story line.


An aesthetic which yearns to be read out loud. Indeed Rulfo’s voice speaks in one’s ear, remains unruffled in one’s mind. Bandaging my hand-my wife rulo there is nothing there. I beg to differ with her. That I didn’t take first aid forty years ago for nothing. Asking for some room I pointed out this was first-responder work.

It is Reader First Responder Work. There is no training even though I thought I was well trained.

El Llano en llamas

These stories instantaneously jump into the bleakest of environments. The sun is either blazing down with such heat as rlufo rip rel stamina of a persons soul or so cold as to freeze internal life in favor dis the necessity of survival with little time for endurance to dream of hope.

Rulfo has bared the land where almost nothing can grow. Decimated, sheared, it has not been placed to support and propagate human life. So, why not leave. Go North where money is to be made by crossing the border into the United States and returning as others have? You see this is where their dead are. One cannot leave one’s dead. This is a collection of leavings. More important it is a collection of being xerrumbe.

From story to story characters are hunted by the unremitting sun, the soil that is no more, one more mountain of jagged rock to be scaled, the last bits of food to be eaten, false religions, government armies, soldiers of rebellion, outlaws, the steaming blood of revenge no matter how many years passed.

Time seeped by long enough where the people appear indifferent. Cold blooded, cold calculated. Rulfo with the slenderest of brush strokes crosses these people, we readers, over the line from indifference to acceptance.

This is merely the way life is and is expected to be. Laying out on the arid plains he hones us in on a look at the primal savagery of the human heart. A broodingly dark place to live within while reading though Rulfo’s aesthetic of the writing of the plains-works well as a geographic location and writing style-is so skilled it underlines, setting fire, to the brutality while providing a sumptuous feast to those who appreciate the temperance of great literature.

Where has he been?

He wrote very little. This collection is not a series of linked short works building up to a common theme.

It is the same theme from the beginning explored in a number of fascinating examples with fascinating characters. Rulfo’s ability to focus on details opens worlds in short spaces.

The only fault I found but resulting in the loss of a star in the dust of the plains is that, though still enjoyable, a few stories were repetitious. This slim volume is but pages. I think it is possible the editor-publisher needed to fill it out so that…? It would look filled with more presents and therefore more marketable? This was a great read in understanding these people, myself, others, the static beat of the human heart and the ways surroundings carve the niche.


I give much thanks to Ben Winch for introducing me to Rulfo. I doubt I would have found him otherwise and life would have been that much less. View all 21 comments.

La prosa seca, directa y austera, algo tosca, es en lo que pienso cuando pienso en la literatura ideal. diia

Es sobre padres e hijos, sobre mujeres robadas, sobre traiciones, sobre miseria y hambre. Rulfo es sin duda de mis escritores favoritos de la vida, siempre que regreso a el me reencuentro con algo nuevo. O vento que vem da aldeia arrima-se-lhe empurrando-a contra as sombras azuis dos cerros.

San Juan de Luvina. As good as Pedro Paramo! Rulfo is a master, the equal of anyone anywhere anytime. These stories are so elemental they are as if hewn from stone.

The opener, ‘Macario’, is a mini-miracle – a monologue by an idiot child so convincing jaun forget it is fiction, forget we are reading almost. And so it is with every story here. They don’t ‘jump off the page’ like so many supposedly virtuosic feats of literary ventriloquism; they insinuate themselves quietly, seem to reach us intravenously.
