Un año sin “el hombre ciudad”

monsi(Mex)La Sala Manuel M. Ponce del mítico Palacio de Bellas Artes, fue el lugar elegido para rendir homenaje y  hablar de las aportaciones, talento, habilidad sarcástica y compromiso social de Carlos Monsiváis. El evento se realizó el domingo 19 de junio de 2011, a un año de su desaparición física.

El maestro Carlos Monsiváis quien falleciera el día 19 de junio del 2010, en el Hospital de Nutrición “Salvador Zubirán”, en la Ciudad de México, víctima de una fibrosis pulmonar, fue recordado por Elena Poniatowska, Sergio Pitol, Javier Aranda, Marta Lamas y Jenaro Villamil entre comentarios, anécdotas y reflexiones en torno a su figura.

Poniatowska, amiga entrañable del autor, compartió que el propio Monsi, de tanto escribir sobre movimientos sociales, se ha vuelto un movimiento social. “Cada vez que nos reunimos la conversación termina girando invariablemente en torno a Monsi. ¿Qué tiene Monsi que nos jala como una central de energía, como una centrífuga que nos hace picadillo en torno a sus aforismo, sus sarcasmos, las horas de su vida, sus prodigiosas mentiras, sus prodigiosas verdades?”

Por ello, sus seguidores, “somos en cierto modo un operativo a futuro, al que se unen todos aquellos sobre quienes escribió”. Monsiváis, concluyó Poniatowska, “nos hace una gran falta, una falta horrible.”

Por otra parte, Sergio Pitol evocó los libros de Carlos como iluminadores. “Sus libros son testimonio del caos, de sus rituales, de sus grandezas, abyecciones, horrores, excesos y formas de liberaciones. Son nuestro esperpento”. Además de ello, apuntó Pitol, la diversidad de su cultura y su capacidad para la polémica, distinguen a Monsiváis, pero sobre todo, “está presente su humor, un permanente chubasco que cae sobre el desierto de la solemnidad.”

Aunado a este homenaje rendido al autor de Días de guardar, días antes se llevó a cabo la colocación dentro del edificio del Museo del Estanquillo de la urna de barro pintada al óleo, que simboliza a un gato que juega con una pelota, donde reposan las cenizas del ensayista mexicano. Dicha urna se encuentra, desde el pasado viernes 17 de junio de 2011, en la Sala de Lectura del Museo. En esta ceremonia, que fue a puerta cerrada y con algunos invitados, Poniatowska recordó que Monsiváis era el “hombre ciudad”, como lo llamó Adolfo Castañón.

Asimismo, el día 20 de junio del presente año, se llevó a cabo un maratón de lecturas, así como anécdotas vividas con el maestro Monsiváis, en el Museo del Estanquillo desde las 10:00 hrs, y que fue transmitido por el IMER a través de Reactor 105.7 FM.

Para finalizar con los homenajes a Monsiváis, el director del Fondo de Cultura Económica (FCE), Joaquín Díez-Canedo, informó que el próximo año publicará una antología que incluirá diversos textos de Carlos Monsiváis, Elena Poniatowska y José Emilio Pacheco. Esto, debido a que la obra que dejó tiene interés permanente, así como la de otros autores, y “es una aportación definitiva a nuestra tradición literaria y se debe procurar que los lectores la encuentren disponible”, comentó el titular de la editorial.

Con un trabajo diario en la prensa escrita y en la televisión, así como en foros públicos, Monsiváis fue uno de los grandes difusores de la cultura mexicana. Era previsible extrañar mucho al autor porque su punto de vista sobre los acontecimientos en el país siempre fue importante.
