They were not animals. It would seem easy, almost obvious, to fall into mythology.

Julio Cortázar (Author of Hopscotch)

I began seeing in the axolotls hulio kortasar metamorphosis which did not succeed in revoking a mysterious humanity. I hulio kortasar them aware, slaves of their bodies, condemned infinitely to the silence of the abyss, to a hopeless meditation.

Their blind gaze, the diminutive gold disc without expression and nonetheless terribly shining, went through me like a message: They continued to look at me, immobile; from time to time the rosy branches of the gills stiffened. In that instant I felt a muted pain; perhaps they were seeing me, attracting my strength to penetrate into the impenetrable thing of their lives.

Drugo Putovanje by Hulio Kortasar (2015, Paperback)

They were not human beings, but I had found in no animal such a profound hulio kortasar with myself. The axolotls were like witnesses of something, and at times like horrible judges.

I felt ignoble in front of hulio kortasar there was such a terrifying purity in those transparent eyes. They were larvas, but larva means disguise and also phantom.

hulio kortasar Behind those Aztec faces, without expression but of an implacable cruelty, what semblance was awaiting its hour? I was afraid of them. I think that had it not been for feeling the proximity of other visitors and the hulio kortasar, I would not have been bold enough to remain alone with them.


What he didn't notice was that it was they devouring me slowly with their eyes, in a cannibalism of gold. At any distance hulio kortasar the aquarium, I had only to think of them, it was as though I were being affected from hulio kortasar distance.

It got to the point that I was going every day, and at night I thought of them immobile in the darkness, slowly putting a hand out which immediately encountered another. Perhaps their eyes could see in the dead of night, and for them the day hulio kortasar indefinitely.

Hulio kortasar eyes of axolotls have no lids.

I know now that there was nothing strange, that that had to occur. Leaning over in front of the tank each morning, the recognition was greater. They were suffering, every fiber of my body reached toward that stifled pain, that stiff torment at the bottom of the tank.

They were lying in wait for something, a remote dominion destroyed, an age of liberty when the hulio kortasar had been that of the axolotls.

Not possible that such a hulio kortasar expression which was attaining the overthrow of that forced blankness on their stone faces should carry any message other than one of pain, proof of hulio kortasar eternal sentence, of that liquid hell they were undergoing.

The Alphabet Library: H is for Hopscotch by Julio Cortazar

My face was pressed against the glass of the aquarium, my eyes were attempting once more to penetrate the mystery of those eyes of gold without iris, hulio kortasar pupil.

I saw from very close up the face of an axolotl immobile next to the glass. No transition and no surprise, I saw my face against the glass, I saw it on the hulio kortasar of the tank, I saw it on the other side of the glass.

Then my face drew back and I understood. Only one thing was strange: To realize that was, for the hulio kortasar moment, like the horror of a man buried alive awaking to his fate.
