Gengis Khan emperador de todos los hombres, de Harold Lamb

Yo recuerdo al oir sobre Gengis Khan,  la voz de un locutor popular en mi país, que solía tener un programa radial, en donde la historia era el tema principal, y al hablar de Gengis Khan, el llamado “Azote de Dios” nos parecía remontar en sus palabras como él decía “desde las llanuras de la Mongolía,  un azote….” a aquellos lugares agrestes y aquellas llanuras que vieron transcurrir la vida de un, ya para unos  despiadado y tirano y para otros  un conquistador admirable, cierto es que la figura de Gengis Khan es una de las más emblemáticas de una época histórica  y sus hazañas las más elogiadas.

Harold Lamb  escribió esta biografía del aquel que con el tiempo se convertiría  en un genio militar de tal magnitud,  que algunos lo catalogan más grande que el mismo Alejandro Magno.  La novela de Lamb, transcurre desde la infancia de “Temujin” que así se llamaba en realidad aquel buen hombre,  que nacía mientras su padre se encontraba lejos luchando y que  al volver se decide por nombrarle como el derrotado al que había ido a castigar.  Por mucho que aquel nombre significara “acero fino” seguro al chiquitin al crecer poco le gustó.   La vida no era la que pensarían algunos, ya chico refinado y malcriado como los de algunos reinados lejanos a las agrestes tierras donde él creció, aprendió a pescar, cazar, atender al ganado y todo lo que fuera que tuviera que saber un hombre que se preciara de tal en las tierras de  Mongolia. Criado por su madre, una de las varias mujeres de su padre, robada en el día de su boda a otra tribu.  La novela recorre la juventud y el ascenso de Gengis Khan, hasta su muerte, ya lo coloca en su entorno familiar, en su tierra, en la forma en que fue criado, en sus pensamientos para llevarnos a un personaje, que se convirtió en lo que era, predestinado a la guerra y a la expansión de un imperio que en su momento llego a sorprender al mundo entero, un bárbaro reinando en casi todo el mundo ¡bien valía sorprenderse!

Lamb escribió la novela sobre Gengis Khan en 1927, y su aporte de datos históricos importantes desconocidos para algunos durante mucho tiempo y a que él, un historiador respetado egresado de la Universidad de Columbia, aporta con esta biografía una nueva semblanza del líder mongol, contribuyó sin duda al rotundo éxito que el libro tuvo a su publicación.   De tal éxito Lamb colaboró en el mundo del cine como guionista, gracias a haberse especializado en historia de Asia, y escribir otros tantos libros históricos que tuvieron gran éxito.

    Disculpa pero creo que erraste en algunos datos:

    elñ azote de Dios, era el mote por el que se conocia a Atila, rey de los Hunos.. nada que ver con los Mongoles y con el gran Kublai Khan (Gengis).. saludos

    Cierto Sergio, agradezco la corrección, y me disculpo por el error. Gracias por visitarnos y comentarnos.

    El personaje de Gengis Khan me fascinó desde pequeño. Pensé que por fin complaba mis expectativas con el libro de Lamb, ¡oh desilusión!Me aburrió de lo lindo. Del mismo autor leí la vida de Carlo Magno. El mismo soponsio.

    Nota: El azote de Dios, como bien se dice aquí era Atila no Gengis Khan. Pero Kublai Khan es otro personaje, descendiente de Gengis. Marco Polo sirvió en su corte durante algunos años. SALUDOS.

    I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options
    for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the
    direction of a good platform.

  23. business fully - 5 de agosto de 2017 | 1:36

    Everything composed made a bunch of sense. But, what about this?
    what if you were to write a awesome post title?
    I am not suggesting your content isn’t solid, however suppose you added
    something that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Gengis Khan emperador de todos los hombres, de Harold Lamb –
    1001 Libros is a little boring. You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create post headlines to
    get people to click. You might add a related video or a pic
    or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it could make your website a little bit
    more interesting.

  24. Julieta - 6 de agosto de 2017 | 22:09

    matter, it may not be a taboo matter but generally people don’t talk
    about these subjects. To the next! Kind regards!!
