The Heretic (EI Hereje)
But before long, the Spanish Inquisition will drive the Reformers to put their lives at stake. His mother having perished in childbirth, his father alienated and disconnected, Cipriano Salcedo’s only source of affection is his wet nurse and foster mother, Minerva. El Principe Destronado Miguel Delibes.
The family dynamics are very nicely handled: We acknowledge and remind and warn you that they may, in fact, be entirely unrepresentative of the actual reviews by any other measure. Their relationship — a striking variation on the Oedipal theme — is torn asunder relatively early on, and he is unable to find Minervina again until near the end of his life. It takes Cipriano a while before he is receptive to the challenges, but ultimately he is convinced.
Cipriano finds the faith that he believes in, but mlguel considerable cost. It doesn’t quite work — the small child doesn’t really understand or appreciate the use of the catechism and the rest, but he does aim to please. As someone tells him: The most obvious challenge is far away: The novel is dedicated: Years later, Cipriano wants to increase what amounts to the minimum wage drlibes his workers, but learns quickly that his unilateral act would do greater harm to the larger community than the gains it would offer to the select few.
His more than fifty books have been translated into sixteen languages. At the very moment Martin Luther nails his ninety-five theses to a church door and launches the movement that will divide the Roman Catholic Church, a child is born, his fate marked by heereje political and religious upheaval taking root in Europe.

At times one suspects he married Teodorima simply in the hopes of literally being overwhelmed by her, but he’s a scrappy little guy and for a while the mismatched couple make it work. Powerful’ New York Times”. In Cipriano’s Spain there is even less openness — but change is in the air, and the questioning of doctrine inevitable. Luther, Calvin, and the like. Bernardo’s coldness towards his son gets worse as the child grows up, and despite having the wherewithal to send him to a fine school he dumps him in a boarding school for foundlings, where the boy won’t even come home for vacations.
Bernardo has chosen to dislike his infant son, tolerating him only out of a sense of paternal obligation — and Cipriano returns the favour by always wailing when he is in his presence. Here and later Delibes uses him as a case-study of the changing economic and business-environment in the Spain of that time, the sort of historical colour that helps add texture to the novel without ever sounding too much like it’s pieced together from a textbook. El hereje – US. Through the story of Cipriano Salcedo, Delibes paints a masterful portrait of the time of Spain’s Charles V and recreates with uncanny accuracy and unparalleled artistry the social and intellectual atmosphere of Europe at one of history’s most pivotal moments.
Similarly the illustrative quotes chosen here are merely those the complete review subjectively believes represent the tenor and judgment of the review as a whole. An opening Prelude, set inwhich has the title character, Cipriano Salcedo, travelling back to Spain with outlawed books Luther, Melanchthon, Erasmus, the Bible as the Inquisition rages certainly offers that but the book quickly jumps back in time, and it’s many pages before heresy and the Inquisition are again at the forefront.
This is very much a life-story, following the life and career of Cipriano from birth to death, and his role as a heretic truly only comes to the fore in the final section and chapters. Meanwhile, Bernardo also lusts after Minervina, and his attempts to spy on and seduce her are very nicely presented. It’s an odd but plausible relationship, eventually shattering over their inability to conceive a child.
While the signs particularly Cipriano’s birth-date are ominous, Delibes doesn’t bog down the narrative with a particular message, or theology or history: Miguel Delibes was born in Valladolid, Spain in Even here, the heresy is slow in coming.
The argument here is not so much that Cipriano has made a superior choice, but that those in power have abused it — much like, for example, the Soviet show-trials of the 20th century. In the final section Delibes nicely presents the fatalistic outlook — and the bizarre near-normality of the proceedings — in the face of the outrageous suppression of any thought inimical to the prevailing doctrine.
The complete review ‘s Review:. Cipriano is an interesting character, marked less by his father’s mistreatment than the loss of his one true love, Minervina.
More than anything, The Heretic is a good story, and it’s well told. Lakm Leo Delibes Inbunden. The Heretic – US.

The Heretic by Miguel Delibes. Cipriano’s mother dies at his birth, and it’s something his father, Bernardo, decides he can never forgive him for. Skickas inom vardagar. Still, from the first, his embrace of religion isn’t wholehearted but rather slightly sceptical. Bernardo is immensely unlikable, wonderfully portrayed as trying out various poses after his wife’s death to see which best fits him, and then playing the part to the hilt.
The Heretic is a three-part novel, beginning with ‘The Early Years’. Business and, for a while, domestic life, satisfy Cipriano, but this is also a world in which religion — and dogmatic hegemony — are being challenged.

Fortunately, Cipriano’s wet-nurse, Minervina — a young teenager who had lost her own child — is a loving caregiver and protector, the mother-figure he needs.
Once he has finished his studies Cipriano takes over his by then dead father’s business, and becomes a successful entrepeneur. The second part, ‘The Heresy’, jumps ahead to when Cipriano has completed his studies and begins his career as a very successful businessman.
