Description


La idea de que la lectura puede contribuir al bienestar de la gente es antigua. Pero pocas obras hablan de la naturaleza de los procesos que llevan a la reconstrucción de uno mismo a partir del encuentro con la palabra escrita. Este libro es un esclarecedor ensayo sobre los rodeos que permiten que la lectura desencadene una reorganización de lo posible, aun en los contextos más difíciles. Michele Petit, antropóloga y novelista francesa, ha realizado estudios en sociología, psicoanálisis y lenguas orientales. Desde 1992 trabaja sobre la lectura y la relación de distintos sujetos con los libros desde una perspectiva cualitativa.

The idea that reading can contribute to well-being is nothing new. But few books have discussed the nature of processes of reinvention by way of the written word. This book is an enlightening essay on how reading can open up a reorganization of what’s possible, even in the most difficult of circumstances.

About the Author


Michele Petit is an anthropologist of reading. For more than 15 years, she has carried out research on reading in various parts of France, Latin America, and elsewhere, with an emphasis on each reader’s intimate and unique experience. This research led her to study the role of reading in building the self, particularly in areas in crisis. Her work is widely known in the Spanish language, both in Spain and Latin America, where she has contributed to a renaissance in thought about literacy education.
