Kurzbeschreibung

März 1992
All over Mexico, early in November, families gather to welcome the souls of the dead on their annual visit home. The smells of burning copal incense and pungent cempasuchil (marigolds) mingle with the aromas of fresh bread, new clothing, sweets, and candles. One of Mexico's most important festivals since prehispanic times, the Day of the Dead is an occasion for celebrating and feasting, cleaning and decorating graves, dancing and making music.In this unique work, the authors explore both the historic origins of this holiday and its colorful present-day celebrations in Mexico and the United States. Interviews with Mexican artists and crafters who provide goods for the festival--from personalized sugar skulls to gigantic papier-mache skeletons--offer a fascinating glimpse into traditional and contemporary attitudes toward death and the dead.Lavishly illustrated with color and black-and-white photographs, The Skeleton at the Feast will be required reading for all who are interested in Mexican culture, art, and folklore.

Pressestimmen

A handsome addition to the recent literature on this Mexican phenomenon.... The photographs are magnificent.... This volume makes a valuable contribution to the study of both Mexican popular culture and the folk art it has produced. It may also be timely, as one of the interviewees laments the way U.S. Halloween customs are supplanting some of the traditional celebrations in urban centers such as Monterrey and the Federal District.

5.0 von 5 Sternen a comprehensive look at a bizarre custom 4. April 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
As an anthropologist who teaches classes on Mexico, I use this book often. The "day of the dead" in Mexico exemplifies, for me, the difference between the U.S. culture and that of Mexico. Just as other cultures might find our U.S. Halloween celebrations strangely at odds with normally conservative Judeo-Christian religious observance, this book illustrates clearly the almost unfathomable blending of pre-Columbian cults of death and sacrifice with Spanish-Catholic traditions. Starting with its origins in Mexico's ancient civilizations, the book discusses and illustrates this observance through modern times, and takes the reader vicariously to the areas of Mexico in which it is most enthusiastically observed. Sit down with a cup of chocolate' and some "pan de los muertos" (bread of the dead), and enjoy a book whose topic you might have thought too morbid for your taste, but which you will probably end up finding much more compelling than repulsive. Unfortunately for me (but better for the publishing company!), I am about to order my 3rd copy of "Skeleton at the Feast"--apparently the students to whom I loan it find it too interesting to return!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Skeleton at the Feast 1. November 2001
Von Edward J. Guice - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I bought this book several years ago at the Museum of Mankind, in London. It was the book for the exhibition, which featured incredible paper sculptures of skeletons and demons.
I read every word of the book, and enjoyed the culture, history, and personal stories of these Mexican artists.
Buy it!
4.0 von 5 Sternen Lighthearted Death and Doom 11. März 2014
Von Jessica Salmonson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
A delightful celebration of our mortality! Folk art extraordinaire, just beautiful skeletony stuff to enthuse over. We put our copy in the bathroom, where we can grunt and poot and ponder our demise.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Written more like a text book, but not dry. Very informative 21. Oktober 2013
Von Ana - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a good book for anyone who is interested in history and traditions. It is well presented, with some photos, many not in color, but very good in providing information. It covers Mexican Traditions from as far back as they can be traced and shows where many of the things we see today originated from. It is a good source book and will aid in the understanding of the way Mexicans combine humor with religious traditions in a very respectable way.
