Seven Writers of our Memory
Seven is the number of this return of Yareah. Seven is a beautiful number, full of holly memories (remember the Bible, where ‘Seven times Seven’ means the infinite) and full of lucky promises (tradition said it is the number of Fortune).
We are not superstitions but, well, you never know and, in any case, we wouldn’t like to face with that powerful goddess, who removes and places at will.
Then, we should choose our seven favorite writes as well as our seven painters for the art section, and this is a laborious task since we could choose a hundred or even a thousand.
The first one (any doubt) must be Homer. He is the first well-known author of the history and his main characters, the heroes and heroines of our childhood. The second one (there is no doubt either) must be Cervantes since Don Quixote not only is the best novel of every time but (in our point of view) the most hilarious. We haven’t got many problems to choose the following two writers: Dickens, the creator of the novelistic modern structure, and Shakespeare, who would disagree with this last choice?
From here, the going gets tough. Joyce?, Zola?, Cortazar?, Hugo?, Scott?, Faulkner?, Borges?, Kipling?, Dos Passos?, Hemingway?, Tolstoy?… Yes, it is really difficult the selection.
Fortunately, we are speaking about our Seven Lucky Writers nor about the best ones. The fifth (the whole Yareah team agrees) should be Poe. ‘The Raven’ has been a poem which excited the youth of all of us (it will be for some reason, we don’t believe in causalities).
Well and what about the two remaining? We remember as an interesting experience the issue dedicated to Metamorphosis: ‘Ovid vs. Kafka’, well suited to our current vagaries. Then, Ovid will be the sixth.
And the seventh is Oscar Wilde since the preface to Dorian Gray is a song for Arts.
Seven to Seven. Seven writers and Seven painters that you will find in 19 issue of Yareah magazine: December 2011 together with our thoughts and experiences besides them.
Lucky 2012!
