"Carlos Castaneda was a Peruvian-born American author who graduated from the University of California with a PhD in Anthropology. Starting with The Teachings of Don Juan in 1968, he wrote a series of controversial books that purported to describe his training in traditional Mesoamerican shamanism. Initially his books were considered works of anthropology, but five years after the first book was published, people such as Joyce Carol Oates began to question whether they weren't in fact fiction. Castaneda never provided any field notes and no professional has ever met the individuals about whom he wrote.

Castaneda was very protective of his privacy and until recently little was known about him outside what was learned from his twelve books. He rarely spoke in public except toward the end of his life, and gave very few interviews.

Since those early days when Oates called his writings into question academics, concluding that his books were fiction, have written about the inconsistencies in his work, citing the books' internal contradictions, discrepancies between the books and anthropological data, alternate sources for Castaneda's detailed knowledge of shamanic practices, and the lack of corroborating evidence. While today his publisher Simon & Schuster still publishes his books as non-fiction, it is generally acknowledged that there is little evidence to suggest that Castaneda's books were the result of actual field work with a Mesoamerican shaman as he claimed."

Numai si amintirea numelui Castaneda, este de ajuns pentru mine,ca sa tresalt de bucurie. Am aflat aici de la dvs. ca voi avea sansa sa citesc si o a 12-a carte de acest autor, despre care nu am aflat sa fi fost tradusa in romana. Este o sarbatoare pentru mine, postarea despre Castaneda. Voi persevera si eu, pe "Babel".

Uite ca mai gasim o impatimita a cartilor dincolo de ocean....frumos!
Imbratisari satmarene si o primavara implinitoare sa ai!

Castaneda nu face parte dintre favoritii mei, dar asta nu ma impiedica sa-i admir pe cei ce-i pretuiesc scrierile - tot ceea ce provoaca dispute si controverse e demn de studiat si aprofundat.
In momentul de fata citesc ceva "lejer", o carte care se straduieste sa faca lumina intre legenda si adevar in ceea ce-i priveste pe piratii care au strabatut oceanele lumii intre sec. XVII-XIX.

Ana Thomas spunea...

Ohhhh, doamna, intotdeauna am iubit cartile....cand munceam cate 18 ore pe zi, nu prea mai aveam timp sa citesc...
Acum, slava Domnului, nu trebuie sa mai traiesc in ritmul acela....imi permit sa citesc mai mult!
Toate cele bune, o duminica de Florii plina de flori si zambete!
Imbratisari!
