«A partire da questo giorno, io rinuncio al diritto di sposarmi se non come libera compagna. Nessun uomo mi legherà di catenas, e non vivrò nella casa di nessun uomo come barragana. Giuro di essere pronta a difendermi con la forza se verrò attaccata con la forza, e di non rivolgermi a nessun uomo per chiedere protezione.»
La Catena Spezzata racconta la vita delle Libere Amazzoni di Darkover, donne coraggiose, intrepide e indipendenti ma soprattutto le uniche in grado di controllare i poteri arcani delle pietre matrici.

Background: a human colony ship crash lands on the wrong planet. They name it Darkover and do their best to survive. Over the centuries they forget their origins and develop a vaguely feudal society. The nobility, called the Comyn, is comprised of seven families of red-heads with different psychic g Leggi tutto
En esta entrega se adentra al lector en el mundo de las Amazonas Libres de Darkover, que se había adelantado brevemente en El Sol Sangriento . Definitivamente, el tema del feminismo es el que Bradley maneja a la perfección, incluso en un mundo ficticio como Darkover en que crea toda una cultura antit Leggi tutto
One of the Darkover series, this book is structured into three sections which each focus on a different woman. In the first part, Lady Rohana Ardais, a member of the ruling caste, has employed a group of women, called Free Amazons, to rescue a kinswoman of hers (not a sister as I see some reviews ha Leggi tutto
wow I loved this story! I remembered very well from the first time I read it and I'm very glad I had the chance to read it again. Rohana is one of the most wonderful heroine in all the history of Darkover. I loved her so much. And Magda is another great woman. They are setting the lines for the futu Leggi tutto
Yet even more on my Bradley kick; I had a heck of a last week and, to escape and cope, buried myself in the 'Renunciate Trilogy.' The Shattered Chain is the first; I understand that many Bradley fans consider it her best. I think it's excellent; I would have to say that, so far, the second in the Tri Leggi tutto
This redeems MZB for me a bit, after that hideous "Forbidden Tower" crap. Good thoughts about gendered behaviour and politics, and a fair amount of action. Still too much anguished navel-gazing for me to ever want to read it again, but seriously - vast improvement over the last one of hers I read. Bu Leggi tutto
Ah, the one in which we meet Magdalen Lorne (one of my favorite Bradley characters - an anthropologist and linguist!) and Jaelle n'ha Melora for the first time. And the first of the Darkover novels to begin fleshing out the stories of the Renunciates, women who rebel against the Darkovan strictures
Al principio tenía muy buena pinta... después se desdibuja en tópicos.
In The Shattered Chain (pub. 1976), Marion Zimmer Bradley explores both the quality and nature of relationships between women and the dimensions of power, control and equality (or lack of equality) in relationships between women and men in a manner that recalls the consciousness-raising of the early Leggi tutto
One of the better entries in Bradley's sprawling DARKOVER series: Jaelle, a Renunciate (Free Amazon), becomes entangled with the Terran Intelligence agent and linguist Magda Lorne when the latter unsuccessfully disguises herself as a Renunciate on a mission to ransom her ex-husband; Lorne, as conseq Leggi tutto
