Anonymous Tuesday, 30 August, It was one of the younger ones who began the weeping. A couple little kids were playing down by the shore and they see a huge figure washed ashore a couple miles away. It was about the intense veneration and admiration of these secluded village people for a dead man. For all of you who are like “gasp!

Soon the villagers have created the details of who this beautiful giant is, giving him a name and background. Is the drowned man functioning as a kind of Neptune, since, after all, the lifeblood and livelihood of the village is so dependent on the sea?

This is a beautiful story of a stranger who the modest townspeople gave a life and family for his majestic size, and handsome features, who was so large and attractive that everyone felt a connection with him, though they had never met him, who even in the cold wake of death’s grip you could feel his warmth, his strength, his pride, and all you people can do is talk about how this saved your ass in Spanish.

I feel the man that was washed ashore grew because his soul wasn’t in peace and in the book it says he looked sad.

Anonymous Thursday, 30 May, The handsomest hermos man in the world, who had mysteriously washed ashore that village, why, he’s this story. If you think I left something out-that’s the punchline of this review-I didn’t. But the more they hurried, the more the women thought of ways to waste time.

Anne (Philippines)’s review of El ahogado más hermoso del mundo

Startling tale, beautifully written, full of symbolism, imagery and allegory. How do we, both individually and as a culture, project our dreams and aspirations onto other people?


They took the mud off with grass swabs, they removed the underwater stones entangled in his hair, and they scraped the crust off with tools used for scaling fish. Underneath The Handsomest Drowned Man in the Worldthere’s this seemingly out of place words written: The way the author writes was absolutely riveting.

The same goes for the hermoso. When will you make up your minds?? I knew what was going on, unlike in the other short story wherein I wasn’t really certain of what I had read, or whether I read it correctly. Anonymous Tuesday, 01 October, Is it about how obsessed with the unknown we can become?

I also really liked that the story itself seems to be mostly removed from our society, as the time and exact location it takes place in are not described.
