Description

Arturo P rez-Reverte recrea en esta breve narraci n uno de los episodios m s dram ticos de la conquista de M xico: la llamada Noche Triste . Entre fango, lluvia y sangre, el Destino se abre paso en una noche en que la muerte no da tregua.La noche del 30 de junio de 1520 tuvo lugar en las afueras de Tenochtitl n el mayor desastre sufrido por las huestes de Hern n Cort s durante la conquista de M xico. En su retirada, los soldados espa oles, castigados por la lluvia, avanzando por los puentes y entre el barro, debieron elegir entre el bot n o la vida; abandonar el lastre de oro y riquezas que tantos peligros, sudor y sangre hab a costado era su nica posibilidad de escapar. Sin embargo, no es f cil dejar atr s la esperanza de un futuro mejor. En Ojos azules, peleando por su vida, un soldado de mirada a il sue a con lo sucedido y por suceder, mientras combate y carga con el talego de oro en el que pesa todo su porvenir. Rese a: Miniatura magistral de la escritura de P rez-Reverte. Del pr logo de Pere Gimferrer ENGLISH DESCRIPTION P rez-Reverte recreates one of the most historical battles in Mexico's conquest, the so called "Sad Night." Surrounded by mud, rain, and blood, Fate has a breakthrough on a night when death seems to give no truce. On the evening of June 30th, 1520, in the outskirts of Tenochtitl n, Mexico suffered the greatest tragedy at the hands of Hern n Cort s during its conquest. The Aztecs taste and relish their next revenge, while the Spaniards are ready to flee under the rain leaving behind the promise of gold for which they crossed the ocean; they must choose, to either take the loot for which so many fought and died for, or flee and save their own lives. But, it's not easy leaving behind the hope of a better future. While fighting for his life, a blue-eyed soldier is not willing to drop the sack full of precious metal; as he dreams of what could be, he fights on while carrying the gold bag filled with the weight of his future.
