Chess Phenomenon Paul Morphy

Libro en inglés Paul Charles Morphy, comparado con Anderssen o Staunton, perteneció al grupo de personalidades enigmáticas de la historia del ajedrez. Fue uno de los jugadores que mantienen vivo el mito de que hay una fina línea entre la genialidad y la locura. Sin embargo, no es el propósito de este libro iluminar las, más o menos oscuras zonas de la vida de Morphy, y no se trata de un estudio psicológico, sino un libro de ajedrez. Paul Charles Morphy compared with famous contemporaries like Adolf Anderssen or Howard Staunton belongs to the enigmatic personalities of chess history. Such a fate remains mostly reserved to those great players whose biography states, sooner or later: showed psychological abnormalities, isolated himself, became moody, a weirdo, a loner ... In short he was one of those who nourish and thus keep alive the folklore maintaining there s a fine line between genius and insanity. However, it s not the aim of this book to illuminate the more or less obscure areas of Morphy s life, as it s not a psychological study, but a chess book. Thus, instead of a research of the soul, a search is to be conducted, a search for a reliable answer to the question as to what sort of chess player Morphy was. The author is a chess historian whose main interest has always been this American superstar of the 19th century rightly regarded as one of the uncrowned world champions . He has selected and annotated 100 of Morphy s most instructive games and traced his life s journey in detail from the discovery of the child prodigy to his early death. The result is a very vivid insight into a highly interesting part of chess history, which has certainly not deserved to fall into oblivion.
