Read online La guerra de los mundos.pdf PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC La guerra de los mundos La guerra de los mundos es un cl sico tanto de la ciencia ficci n como de la literatura universal Pocos libros como ste plasman con tal nitidez e inteligencia la condici n humana en sus m s crudos aspectos .

A lo largo de la poderosa escritura de Wells vemos c mo los marcianos que arriban a la Tierra con la intenci n de conquistar y sojuzgar a sus habitantes son retratados con los rasgos m s caracter sticos de sus antagonistas los humanos Todo el horror que es infligido a los terr colas por unos seres repugnantes pero m s inteligentes y poseedores de una civilizaci n superior no es sino el horror que los humanos ocasionan al resto de las especies que comparten su estad a en la Tierra De alguna forma los marcianos representan el rostro que se trata de ocultar de la propia Humanidad Por eso La guerra de los mundos junto con de Orwell que por cierto eran contempor neos aunque no precisamente amigos representan las dos alegor as m s contundentes de la condici n humana Pero tambi n es un relato pico de dimensiones tit nicas donde el lector se ir adentrando m s y m s en un mundo a punto de fenecer donde su protagonista a pesar de percibir la terrible similitud entre los dos antagonistas jam s pierde la esperanza en la victoria de los hombres sobre los alien genas A fin de cuentas la existencia es una lucha continua De una forma u otra la guerra de los mundos es impostergable S lo le queda al lector disfrutar el amargo c liz de lo inevitable by H.G. Wells, Anahí Ramírez Alfaro
