Par Julio Llamazares. 2018
Diez años después de la publicación de su aclamada Las rosas de piedra, Julio Llamazares concluye su recorrido por España… y su historia a través de las catedrales Cuando se cumplen diez años de la publicación de su memorable Las rosas de piedra, Julio Llamazares concluye con este libro el que sin duda es el proyecto literario en español más importante de las últimas décadas: su recorrido por las setenta y cuatro catedrales de España. Como hicieran los viajeros de otra época, después de recorrer todas las del norte, el autor va de Madrid a las islas Canarias, pasando por Extremadura, Castilla-La Mancha, Levante, Andalucía y las Baleares, describiendo de manera minuciosa y con una mirada humanista -no exenta en ocasiones de ironía y crítica-, cada una de las catedrales erigidas en esta zona de la geografía española. Algunas de ellas son visitadas por él por primera vez; otras, redescubiertas. Pero en todas ellas Llamazares sabe hallar ese hilo que las une con las gentes que las visitan por turismo o devoción, por curiosidad o costumbre. Más allá de su esplendorosa arquitectura, estas fascinantes «rosas de piedra» se muestran, en el relato del viajero, como espejos en los que observar las relaciones que existen entre las personas y el paisaje a través del tiempo. La crítica ha dicho sobre el autor:«Llamazares es sobre todo un poeta; de hecho, el ritmo de su escritura en prosa es deudor de esa ambición de asociar las palabras (y la memoria, que es su fuente) con el ritmo; la música es consustancial con su narrativa, y eso le viene de la poesía.»Juan Cruz, El País «Julio Llamazares es, sin duda, uno de esos escritores que nos reconcilian con el ejercicio de la literatura.»Aurelio Loureiro, Leer «Julio Llamazares sigue siendo un escritor especial, alguien capaz de mirar el mundo de otra manera.»El Correo Gallego «Unescritor de su categoría podría redactar los anuncios por palabras de un periódico y seguiría siendo interesantes.»Qué Leer Sobre Las rosas de piedra:«Julio Llamazares es un verdadero viajero: persigue un objetivo y regresa enriquecido de él. Su peregrinación a través de las diferentes regiones de España supone una visión personalísima y una apasionante historia de arte. Un libro de viaje indispensable.»Cees Noteboom «Un proyecto casi existencial, algo melancólico, de rescate de mundos que se apagan.»Alejandro Gándara, El Mundo «Llamazares siempre escribe igual cuando viaja, habría que añadir también que siempre escribe bien, sin arrogancia, desprejuiciadamente, con sentido del humor y con cariñosa indulgencia cuando retrata. Y tal vez sea ésa la clave [...]. El autor está enamorado de lo que describe y de lo que descubre.»Andrés Barba, El Cultural «A Julio Llamazares, uno de nuestros escritores más honestos y versátiles, le gusta echarse al camino y contarnos lo que ve, escucha y siente. [...] Sus relatos viajeros filtran una prosa muy singular, lírica y exacta a la vez, y son, a mi juicio, de lo mejor que se ha escrito en España desde los presupuestos del género.»José Luis Argüelles, La Nueva España «No es una guía de catedrales ni una guía de viajes, es literatura de viajes, un género dominado por Julio Llamazares.»Francisco Moya, Literatura de viajes Sobre Trás-os-Montes: «Julio Llamazares recupera la imagen del viajero como figura literaria.»Amelia Castilla, El País Sobre El viaje de Don Quijote: «Llamazares, con habilidad, mezcla lo actual con lo pretérito, lo literario con lo sociológico. [...] Siempre es bueno que nos miren desde fuera; nos señalen nuestras virtudes y defectos, y más si lo hacen con solvencia literaria, como es el caso.»Alfonso González-Calero,
