    One thought on “Sab”

    1. This is an antislavery novel,written a decade before Uncle Tom's Cabin, hence a turning point for the antislavery movements.( I mean it was not even published freely in Cuba until 1914)

    2. Sab This summer I read “ Sab “ by Gertrudis Gomez de Avellaneda. The main character in the book is Sab he is a slave but is also the son of the Patron, he just doesn’t know it yet. The story takes place in a plantation in Cuba. The conflict of the story is how Sab is in love with Carlota, but it is forbidden love because they are related but they just don’t know it. The conflict is not resolved,it just becomes worse because Sab dies. The message of the book is that love can be forbidden [...]

    3. This was a typical Romantic novel, with extravagant and unrealistic emotional outbursts and people dying from unrequited love. There are some serious critical opportunities, however, for a student of literature. One can analyze the novel in terms of sex, race, gender, nationalism, abolitionism, and genre. While it was not enjoyable to me as a reader, I can understand why it is a frequently analyzed novel for Cuban and Latin American studies.

    4. Una novela de una autora cubana bastante interesante, lo leí para la universidad y extrañamente lo devoré. El pobre esclavo que dio su vida por la hija del patrón que nunca le iba a corresponder su amor U.u

    5. Este libro es una joyita de las letras latinoamericanas. A pesar de que la historia no es completamente de mi agrado (muy meloso y mucho llanto), el trasfondo, lo que el libro quiere decir, lo que se puede sacar de su lectura es muy valioso. Nos presentan, a través de un relato de romance con detalles maravillosos y una descripción exquisita y rigurosa, un contexto social potente: una época marcada por la esclavitud, por el legado colonial, las clases sociales, el racismo, la posición de la [...]

    6. La verdad es que Sab hace justicia a lo que viene siendo el Romanticismo ya que nos encontramos diversas características de este como son las descripciones y las reflexiones interiores. En todo momento estamos ante un paisaje prácticamente idílico que ayuda a evocar los sentimientos de los personajes los cuales se muestran en numerosas ocasiones con monólogos interiores en los que se tratan reflexiones tanto morales como amorosas.Para leer más: antiasreadings.e

    7. Lectura para clase. Algo previsible y tedioso en algunos trozos, pero en general me ha gustado bastante. Tiene algunos pasajes dignos de subrayar y las descripciones son maravillosas.

    8. Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda and her famous, not-quite-abolitionist novel Sab are, for twenty-first century readers accustomed to fiction more "realistic" and anti-slavery sentiments more firm, two very easy punching bags. While it's true that for her the idea of completely abolishing slavery is, as Bourdieu would call it, "unthinkable," it's also true that la Avellaneda was writing without a precedent -- without an extensive pre-existing tradition of anti-slavery or anti-patriarchy literature [...]

    9. ¿Qué puedo decir de Sab?Es una historia de amor. Una historia de desamor. Una historia de historia. Una historia que fue considerada abolicionista en su tiempo (años 1800) y que terminó estando, vista ya al paso de los siglos, más cerca de la esclavitud de lo que su autora, Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda, hubiera querido.Me pareció demasiado apegado a los ideales románticos azucarados el personaje de "Sab", daba rabia que Carlota fuera tan ingenuamente tonta y que se viera a la mujer como [...]

    10. I'm giving this three stars because I feel like it is a book of historical importance, especially within the realm of Caribbean literature, culture and ethics. Many people are surprised to know this was written before "Uncle Tom's Cabin", and the pitiful plight of Sab, a black slave on a Cuban plantation, definitely propelled the antislavery movement forward. The language (in Spanish) is rich and lush, and the plot and pacing of the story are compelling.My dislike stems from a general dislike of [...]

    11. Tuve que leer este libro para una clase de literatura y la verdad es que no pensé que me gustaría tanto. Me rompió el corazón en miles de pedazos, pero la forma en que Sab se expresaba y cómo los temas principales fueron presentados me gustó mucho. Es un libro que te hace enojar frente a las injusticias que le ocurren a las personas que menos se lo merecen. Sab es un personaje que me tocó mucho el corazón con su amor tan puro, su valentía y con su infinita bondad. En fin, me gustó much [...]

    12. The book Sab talks about a slave in 1841 in Cuba named Sab. The main Character is Sab, he is a nice, caring and loving slave as well as very dedicated, not to his job but to his love Carlota. Though Carlota does not love Sab, and is actually getting married to Enrique Otway, who very early on in the book we learn only wants her for her money. Sab want’s Carlota to love him and tries everything but in the end there's only so much he can do before she marries Enrique Otway. In the book almost ev [...]

    13. Una lectura obligatoria sobre el romanticismo. Sacando conclusiones con solamente la lectura y no con la reflexión de la obra, puedo decir que es un libro que cualquiera puede leer, presenta las características propias de su corriente literaria con algo de denuncia propia de los problemas que tenían los esclavos, los negros y los mulatos en Cuba.También se tiene presente algún elemento fantástico y un amor imposible, un final trágico y unos personajes muy interesantes, pero que para mi gu [...]

    14. I enjoyed this novel, an anti-slavery and Romantic tale. The titular character is the big draw, as far as plot goes--most of the other characters annoyed me (Carlota in particular). We see the different problems present in Cuba in the first half of the 19th century, both economically and socially. Sab is awesome, and he is always putting others before himself. Of course, because he is a Romantic hero, the end is tragic. It's worth noting that this novel predates Beecher Stowe's novel by quite a [...]

    15. A beautifully written, and half forgotten, work that cleverly challenges social conventions about gender roles, social classes and racism. Although told with a highly idealistic and sentimental tone and view, characteristic of Romantic writing, its argument and questioning couldn't be more realistic and relevant. A heartwarmingly sweet yet bitterly tragic love story.

    16. leí este libro en un clase del romanticismo español. mi clase lo describió como versión de "uncle tom's cabin," diez años mayor y desarrollado en cuba. sin embargo, no estoy de acuerdo con esta interpretación; el tema de la esclavitud aquí sirve solo como paralelismo de la discriminación que enfrentaron las mujeres de esa época.

    17. This is a really interesting book. It's a gothic novel set in Cuba, and it's an early example of an anti-slavery book with a feminist bent. The story was kind of weird and at times the drama was over the top. Still, I think it was interesting to have read. It took me ages to find it, too. There don't seem to have been many reprints.

    18. Well, does having studied it in class count as having read it? I don't really care about the answer to the first question because I know enough about what I did read to say that this is not a good book. It's only interesting in the history of literature because it is the only Spanish Abolitionist novel written by a woman, not because the characters or story are that great.

    19. This is a fast read in the romantic tradition about a relationship between a black Cuban and the family that he works for. It talks about relationships that are, relationships that never are given the chance to flourish, and the politics of marriage, among other things.

    20. Me enamoré del lenguaje de Sab. Y a través de Sab, me enamoré más de la lengua española. Ya que español es mi segundo idioma que he estado aprendiendo solamente por dos años, no sé que más que puedo esperar de una novela.

    21. I taught this book and thoroughly enjoy reading it. My students seemed to like it as much as I did. Very corny, but reveals the class and racial tensions of pre-indepencence Cuba. It's available in translation too.

    22. Una obra que genera muchas discusiones sobre el esclavismo y el amor prohibido, en este tiempo, entre personas blancas y negras. Lo leí para la Universidad y me gustó bastante.

    23. Great storyA must read classic. Even better is the fact that a woman, given the time period, was able to write such a story where the slave is humanized.

    24. Published in 1841. Example of Romanticismo. Wrote a paper on it in the fall of 2008 for Virginia's class.
