What I find most fascinating about the story is the author.
Despite all of that, we are still enthralled by the passion Carmen and Don Jose show, by their complex psychological profiles an their crimes.

They would both rather die than to compromise with one another. Carmen will not compromise her belief system, her honor as a gypsy, while Don Jose does abandon his Basque hidalgo co What I find most fascinating about the story is the author. Carmen will not compromise her belief system, her honor as a gypsy, while Don Jose does abandon his Basque hidalgo code, but refuses to compromise his desires.
I really can’t ignore the unflattering and oversimplified portrayal of the Roma people a. I know it’s the times that are to blame, but that does not mean that it should be overlooked or that I can’t pretend it didn’t take away from the story.

All my reading life I’ve heard of the quintessential Carmen, the wild gypsy woman who led hooligan bands and smugglers throughout Spain until she was a living legend.
What a pleasure to finally read Prosper Merimee’s classic rendition of the legend he heard from his friend the Contessa de Montijo in Madrid.
Carmen’s clearly the seed from which sprang such marvelous creations as Catherine Earnshaw and Augusta Geraldine Alaisda of Gondal. This is storytelling based on the grand oral tradition, All my reading life I’ve heard of the quintessential Carmen, the wild gypsy woman who led hooligan bands and smugglers throughout Spain until she was a living legend. This is storytelling based on the grand oral tradition, and like the translations of Paul Bowles is a vivid education for the practitioner of written fiction.

Aug 23, Alaa Osama rated it it was ok. Jul 16, Heather rated it it was amazing Shelves: The unique way the “love” story of Don Jose and Carmen was told was immensely enjoyable. Essentially, a story about a man who happened upon a much sought after outlaw who told him all about how his life went to complete and utter shit because he fell in love with an unscrupulous gypsy woman.
Just this one man telling his life story to another, forlorn and waiting to be hung. Carmen was no ex The unique way the “love” story of Don Jose and Carmen was told was immensely enjoyable.
Carmen was no exception. Other readers seem to praise her free spirit and love of independence, but to me those things came across as selfish and diva-ish.
She seems to want her cake and eat it too. I defy anyone to read this and not feel sorry for poor, innocent, manipulated Jose who fell in love with a vexing, perpetual lawbreaker. Because of her manipulation of his feelings, his life changed drastically and he ended up a rogue.
All because this one gypsy woman. I take issue with the fact that everyone pits this as a story of “passionate lovers”. It’s a love tragedy for sure, since they both die in the end. But for me the love was entirely one sided poor, smitten Jose.
Carmen spent time with him and made love to him only when she pleased, even when she because his romi. And all he ever really wanted was to return to an honest life and make her an honest law abiding woman. And at the end it hurt my heart when she refused to quit thieving, smuggling, conning, sleeping around etc, when Jose felt desperate enough to kill her.
An interesting thing to debate would be who the real “bad guy” was. To me Jose, though he murdered the woman he loved, was never the bad guy.
Carmen, however, is one of those everyday kind of villains. The ones you don’t see coming and who leave lasting, psychological anxieties. Without doubt you can describe Jose as a victim of emotional abuse, pushed to the brink, snapping and taking the life of his tormentor. He wasn’t a bad man at heart, we see it often enough throughout the story and then when he turns himself over to the police and admits his crime – a poetic last attempt of chivalry.

People talk about a pair of Basque legs! Then I started to run myself, and they after me—but how were we to catch her? Apr 08, Lillien rated it it was amazing. I read it maybe 14 years ago.

The main frame of the novella was about the gypsies and their lives, but the core is about the fatal love between the gypsy woman Carmen Carmencitawhich lead to her death by her lover Don Jose. Carmen who works in a cigar factory manipulates the inexperienced corporal Don Jose, originally from Navarre but works in Malaga, to let her escape the imprisonment.

She can make sex with other people for business sake, using her tricks to seduce and manipulates men, to be robbed then; then she believes in omens and magic. Sep 10, Kilian Metcalf rated it really liked it. So much fun to read the origin of one of the world’s most popular opera. I’ll be seeing my first live version this season in Tucson.
In preparation, I’ve been watching video and film versions. Close second is the film adaptation starring Placido Domingo and Julia Migenes. That’s her face on the book cover. In that film, even the horses got into the mood, twitching their tails in time to the music at times.
There i So much fun to read the origin of one of the world’s most popular opera. There is a silent film version, based more closely on the book, that was fun to watch. Well worth the time for opera fans, it is amusing to trace the transition for the elements of the book as they morph into the opera.
Jose is a brute, a humble soldier who kills easily and remorselessly.
