Description

Narrated in a piercing style, this novel tells of a famous young boy who is found in late September of 1797 in the forests of French Languedoc by three hunters and who goes on to frighten and mesmerize all of France. This so-called wild child wanders the woods, completely naked and hairy, having adopted the manners of an animal. Once captured, he begins his journey through France, visiting both mental institutions and refined lounges, where he becomes little more than a sideshow attraction."Narrada de modo desgarrador, esta novela recuenta la historia del celebre nino quien es descubierto a finales de septiembre del 1797 en los bosques del Languedoc frances por tres cazadores y quien llega a asustar y fascinar a toda Francia. Este llamado nino salvaje anda por los bosques, completamente desnudo y peludo, con los modales de un animal. Una vez capturado, comienza su peregrinacion por Francia, visitando tanto instituciones mentales como salones refinados, donde se convierte en poco menos que una atraccion de feria.""show more

Review Text

Encuadernación: Rústica.El pequeño salvaje es una prodigiosa nouvelle que narra, de modo desgarrador, la historia del célebre niño salvaje de Aveyron, quien a principios del siglo XIX atemorizó y luego fascinó a toda Francia por tratarse de uno de los raros ejemplares de niño asilvestrado y criado entre bestias.A finales de septiembre de 1797, en los bosques del Languedoc francés, tres cazadores hallaron a un niño errante, completamente desnudo, hirsuto, que adoptaba los modales de un animal. Aparentaba unos ocho o nueve años. Una vez capturado, empezaría su peregrinación por la Francia recién salida de la revolución, recalando tanto en instituciones mentales como en refinados salones, donde constituiría poco menos que una atracción de feria.La historia, una de las más apasionantes de la literatura reciente, sería llevada a la pantalla por François Truffaut en 1969. Una nouvelle genial que rescata un mito latente en la literatura moderna: el del niño feral criado por lobos.show more
