Javier Negrete: Disclosure does not mean vulgarize

Javier says Negrete, when he began to publish his books in the publisher, the sphere, starting with the great adventure of the Greeks, it was also when, "apparently", he began to profile his disherty facet. He emphasizes that "apparently" because, long before debuting in the bookstores, he already shared and most accessible his knowledge of his students from Greek and Latin more accessible.

Novelist, essayist and teacher, these three facets that intermingle come from a single passion and need: to narrate. "History does not stop being a narrative, the story that peoples make of themselves at each time," says the writer. "An advantage of novel or disclosing antiquity is that it allows a certain distance without being carried by both the interests and prejudices of the recent and the contemporary."

He also insists on that "certain" and in that "both" because, in his opinion, the total objectivity is impossible. "What is narrated in the books we call 'of History' also has a good part of creation, although only by the facts that the writers we select and those that we leave in the inkwell".

After publishing Victorious Rome and Invicta Rome, with Rome betrayed Negrete again immersed himself in the history of the Roman people. "It is so long and varied that it is found in everything: successes and failures, moments of nobility combined with others of Viledes and starring characters larger than life, it was a cultured society that spoke and, therefore, wrote a lot of Itself, which allows us to know it much more than other cultures of the past, although not as much as we would like. "

On this occasion, they are two antagonistic characters, Octavio and Marco Antonio, the protagonists. "When they agreed, they did it for facing those who considered common enemies, such as gross, Casio or Cicero," the author says. "The portrait that has arrived from them has a bit like that coin of two faces Nietzscheana, with Octavio on the apolinean face, more rational and contained in his behavior, and Antonio on the reverse Dionisiac, more passional and uncontrolled, is not chance May the God who else was entrusted Octavio was the bright Apollo, while Antonio was identified on many occasions with the orgiastic and dark Dionysus, "illustrates.

Although his saga over Rome does not conclude with this last title, the success harvested so far with the previous deliveries allows him to make a positive provisional balance. More in these times when "the fight for the novelties table is more bloodth than those who waged the gladiators in the Colosseum," he jokes him. "Roma betrayed ends with the Battle of Accio, but to the saga that for the moment they form these three books still remains a lot for narrating. I hope the readers continue to accompany me in this adventure."
