About: Child of God

An Entity of Type: book, from Named Graph: http://dbpedia.org, within Data Space: dbpedia.org

Child of God (1973) is the third novel by American author Cormac McCarthy. It depicts the life of a violent young outcast and serial killer in 1960s Appalachian Tennessee. Though the novel received critical praise, it was not a financial success. Like its predecessor Outer Dark (1968), Child of God established McCarthy's interest in using extreme isolation, perversity, and violence to represent human experience. McCarthy ignores literary conventions – for example, he does not use quotation marks – and switches between several styles of writing such as matter-of-fact descriptions, almost poetic prose, and colloquial first-person narration (with the speaker remaining unidentified).

  • Hijo de Dios​ (Child of God, 1973) es la tercera novela del escritor estadounidense Cormac McCarthy. Aunque la novela recibió una buena acogida crítica, no fue un éxito comercial. Al igual que su predecesora, (1968, La oscuridad exterior), Hijo de Dios reafirmó el interés de McCarthy en el uso del aislamiento extremo, la perversidad y la violencia para representar la experiencia humana normal. McCarthy ignora, además, determinadas convenciones literarias - por ejemplo, no usa marcas para los diálogos - y cambia constantemente entre distintos estilos de escritura, como la descripción objetiva, la prosa casi poética, y la narración coloquial en primera persona (en la que el hablante queda sin identificar).
