El sueño del celtaY a la ía sudamericana uedaron dos informes memorables ue conmocionaron a la sociedad de su tiempo Estos dos viajes y lo ue allí vio cambiarían a Casement para siempre haciéndole emprender otra travesía en este caso intelectual y cívica tanto o más devastadora La ue lo llevó a enfrentarse a una Inglaterra a la ue admiraba y a militar activamente en la causa del nacionalismo irlandésTambién en la intimidad R The list of atrocities committed by short ugly men with sexual complexes and inhuman proclivities means that evil is legion it is omnipresent and as real today as 100 years ago One of the great anti colonial fighters and defenders of human rights and indigenous cultures of his time and a sacrificed combatant for the emancipation of Ireland 354 is the man Roger Casement MVL hooked himself another incredible biography this time to cement properly into itty bitty literature for all of eternity Again stupid is the cause for the baffling downfall and failed revolution of a beautiful soul Vargas Llosa is by now an expert of this his best novels are all historic biographies Dream is the definitive novel which completes the triad of 4 star literary histories which began with the titanic War of the End of the World and was continued by the prolonged fever pitch of perfection that is Feast of the Goat This one is as magnificent as the other two as gripping and unputdownable The story never dies criminals of human degeneracy are never placed on trial; crimes are never atoned for And in Casement we have the hero that is inherently human and whose destiny is therefore heart wrenching This o readers is the epitome of classy of majestic lush prose a writer worth studying and CLOSELYI am an enormous fan of this man His expertise ranges from the tiniest germinating seed to the sprawling cosmos Indeed he could write about ANYTHING and make of it a BRILLIANT work of art In this MVL's fair distribution of the light and dark of the humanity and evil tug of war that is everlasting is the main attraction I dare to compare this not just to his other works of immaculate intelligence and craft but with Kenneally's Schindler's Ark or Margaret Atwood's Alias Grace as wellthis is a hardcore recommendation as minute and insignificant as Desdemona's hankie

Mario Vargas Llosa Õ El sueño del celta Pdf

La aventura ue narra esta novela empieza en el Congo en 1903 y termina en una cárcel de Londres una mañana de 1916Auí se cuenta la peripecia vital de un hombre de leyenda el irlandés Roger Casement Héroe y villano traidor y libertario moral e inmoral su figura múltiple se apaga y renace tras su muerteCasement fue uno de los primeros europeos en denunciar los horrores del colonialismo De sus viajes al Congo Belga Curb Your EnthusiasmRoger Casement had consistently disappointing experience with modern institutions His work as a shipping clerk in a private firm in Liverpool had no adventure His time as an adventurer in the Congo for the Belgian monarch lacked humanity His diplomatic efforts as part of the British government on behalf of humanity had little practical success And his association with the ultimately successful 1916 Easter Uprising in Ireland led to his conviction for treason against his country and death by hanging If he had survived into the Republic I’m confident he would have found that Eire didn’t meet his expectations either And incidentally he was gay which did him little good among many institutions with which he had yet to have contactOne might accurately call Casement a serial idealist He moved from one idealistic fantasy to another throughout his life seeking that true cause within an organization composed of other similarly dedicated true believers When he failed to find the right ideal or a sufficiently sympathetic organization he doubled the stakes plunging into and radical causes until he ended up conspiring with Germany to free his native Ireland from British rule He was in short somewhat of a social menaceThere are numerous poems ballads and mythical stories about Casement as an Irish national hero Brian Inglis wrote his biography in 1973; this was republished 20 years later and then again in 2002 Casement has been the subject of international television documentaries a stage play another biographical novel contemporaneous with that of Vargas Llosa a graphic novel as well as numerous articles government reports and literary references Casement’s memoirs journals and diaries have been published and extensively analyzed in the popular and academic press He is even the theme of an American country rock song The man in other words has been well studiedTherefore it seems to me odd that Vargas Llosa would choose Casement as the subject of this biographical novel At times it is unclear if Vargas Llosa had decided definitively either to write a biography or a novel He ends up providing immense amounts of historical detail but very little about what’s going on in Casement’s head except his progressive disillusion with the way the world had been organized in his absence There are no innovative insights no obvious literary themes no controversial interpretations as there are in his other biographical novel The War of the End of the World Other than as a somewhat strident cautionary tale for today’s young idealists therefore I don’t see the point
