El hombre íntegro en las formas

     Obligó a todos sus hijos a que estudiaran una carrera, los castigaba cuando suspendían los exámenes del instituto, no quería que mejoraran el mundo sino la imagen de la familia. Ya no creía en Dios pero seguía siendo religioso, según él, por lo mucho que le influyó la educación de su infancia. Cuando leía un poema, reflexionaba sobre las posibles influencias de otros autores, los recursos estilísticos, la riqueza del vocabulario, las fuentes temáticas y haciéndolo se entretenía mucho pero el poema en sí le dejaba frío y no le impulsaba a ser mejor persona. Era amable con la gente hasta que se cansaba. Lujo, le parecía  que era su piscina, su mercedes o sus tres cuartos de baño pero que le quisiera su mujer, lo consideraba normal y corriente, cosa de poca importancia y mérito. Le gustaba tener mucho dinero para vivir cómodamente y para que la gente no pensara que no era trabajador. Quedó muy bien en su funeral, la gente volvió muy satisfecha a su casa.

The man decent in the forms

     He forced all his children to study a career, punished them when they suspended their high school exams, did not want them to improve the world but the image of the family. He no longer believed in God but remained religious, according to him, because of how much he was influenced by the education of his childhood. When he read a poem, he reflected on the possible influences of other authors, the stylistic resources, the richness of the vocabulary, the thematic sources and doing so was much entertained but the poem itself left him cold and did not impel him to be a better person. He was kind to people until he got tired. It seemed to him that luxury was his swimming pool, his mercedes or his three bathrooms but that his wife liked him, considered it normal and ordinary, of little importance and merit. He liked having lots of money to live comfortably and so people would not think he was not a worker. He was very well at his funeral, the people returned very satisfied to their house.
