    Zorro por Isabel Allende (fiercebunny)
    fiercebunny: Isabel Allende is one my favorite Authors of all time, and Zorro is a surprising and beautifully written novel. While it is not my favorite Allende novel, it is up there and it a a fun read.

I'm actually not sure how I feel about this one. It's written in third person which I always struggle with because it's hard to really get to know the characters plus I was really struggling by the last hundred pages. Not a keeper for me.

Good historical novel by Isabel Allende to kick off the summer. Zarite, born a slave is at the center of this complex family story that moves from Haiti to New Orleans. ( )
  auldhouse | Sep 30, 2021 |
La azarosa historia de una esclava en el Santo Domingo del siglo XVIII que logrará librarse de los estigmas que la sociedad le ha impuesto para conseguir la libertad.

Para ser una esclava en el Saint-Domingue de finales del siglo XVIII, Zarité había tenido buena estrella: a los nueve años fue vendida a Toulouse Valmorain, un rico terrateniente, pero no conoció ni el agotamiento de las plantaciones de caña ni la asfixia y el sufrimiento de los trapiches, porque siempre fue una esclava doméstica. Su bondad natural, fortaleza de espíritu y honradez le permitieron compartir los secretos y la espiritualidad que ayudaban a sobrevivir a los suyos, los esclavos, y conocer las miserias de los amos, los blancos

I don't know what to say about this.
On one hand the story is gorgeous and lyrically written.
On the other hand the author includes a ton of antiblackness.
In a story about chattel slavery and the single most successful uprising against chattel slavery in recorded history.
The author makes a lot of effort portraying the black Haitians as pitiless but doesn't go to the trouble of accurately portraying the nightmare that chattel slavery was everywhere, but most especially on the islands.
I think enslaved blacks in Haiti lived an average of 3 years, due to the extremely brutal nature of chattel slavery as practiced on the island and the relative ease of replacing chattel slaves.
White Haitians packed enslaved Haitians anuses with gun powder when bored. None of this behavior makes it into the novel.
The novel pretends chattel slavery in Haiti was comparable to US style chattel slavery, when that's not historically accurate.
In addition the author repeatedly conflates indentured servitude with chattel slavery.
This is the equivalent of comparing the US Concentration Camps-where we illegally and inhumanely held Japanese Americans in captivity during WWII with the Nazi Concentration Camps. See what I did there? Clearly both behaviors were horrid, both are based on xenophobia and yet one is understood to be far worse than the other.
The same is true of chattel slavery in comparison to indentured servitude.
Both are crimes against humanity and both are wrong.
Making the case that indentured servitude is equivalent to chattel slavery is both slavery apologist and a support of white supremacy.
The KKK supports the theory that the "Irish" were slaves under indentured servitude.
To find a writer billed as a POC pushing white supremacist lies is jarring.
It is important to note that being born in South America doesn't make you a POC and my assumption is this author is white. Certainly she is antiblack and a slavery apologist.
This book is horrible and I have no clue how no one has called the author on her blatant racism. ( )

After the recent catastrophes in New Orleans and Haiti, I had hoped this novel would teach me something new about the history of those places, but it did not. I kept wondering when the story would take off, but it never did. There is no magical realism here, and little realism of the ordinary kind. It has much more in common with Cartland than with Márquez.

Island Beneath the Sea isn't Allende's greatest work, but she handles a difficult issue with, for the most part, considerable restraint and grace. Allende isn't, and never has been, a terribly subtle writer -- her plots are typically markedly dramatic, and her characters often wear their motivations and emotions on their sleeves. But she's a little more reined in than usual here, despite a few ornate phrasings that might have lost something in translation ("Meanwhile, the French Revolution had hit the colony like the slash of a dragon's tail ... ").
 
With this admirable novel, Allende cements her reputation as a writer of wide scope and amazing talent. Although very traditional in its unfolding — readers enamored by her use of magical realism will find little in this narrative — this historical novel does what one hopes a book of its ilk will do: transport readers to a new world, open up history and make it come alive, and cause readers to forget time passing in the world the author has so carefully and lovingly built.
 
Critics devised the label “magical feminism” just for Isabel Allende’s multigenerational family chronicles featuring strong-willed women, usually entangled in steamy love affairs against a backdrop of war and political upheaval. These elements are all present in her latest novel, “Island Beneath the Sea,” which is set partly in late-18th-century Haiti. The protagonist, a mulatto slave named Zarité, is maid to a sugar planter’s wife who gradually goes mad. (The Caribbean seems to have had a reliably deranging effect on women in fiction, from “Jane Eyre” onward.) Even before her mistress’s death, Zarité becomes the concubine of her master, Valmorain, submitting to that role across decades and borders, even when he flees to New Orleans after the 1791 slave revolt. ...
In a welcome revision, Allende brings women to the forefront of the story of the rebellion. She replaces the African war god Ogun with the love goddess Erzulie. (In the one episode that most approaches magic realism, Erzulie possesses Zarité, but even then it’s unclear whether this is merely happening in Zarité’s imagination.) Ultimately, however, Allende has traded innovative language and technique for a fundamentally straight­forward historical pageant. There is plenty of melodrama and coincidence in “Island Beneath the Sea,” but not much magic.

NOT MAGIC, NOT REALISM
This failure to capture history in the making is the greatest contrast between this book and Allende’s early works. The rich texture of details that Allende provided in The House of the Spirits and Of Love and Shadows served to bring a particular universe vividly to life. The rich details were not superfluous or banal—they had a purpose, they represented a larger understanding. In Island Beneath the Sea, by contrast, what we get is a shallow and lazy pastiche of a well-researched historical mise-en-scène embellished by irrelevant but colorful particulars that are supposed to certify the book’s authenticity but are instead a poor substitute for a deeper comprehension of what this moment in history was about.
