es Limba Spaniolă Carte Paperback – October 2011
La aventura que narra esta novela empieza en el Congo en 1903 y termina en una cárcel de Londres, una mañana de 1916. Aquí 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 muerte. El sueño del celta describe una aventura existencial, en la que la oscuridad del alma humana aparece en su estado más puro y, por tanto, más enfangado. Una novela mayor de Mario Vargas Llosa. Seleccionada como mejor novela publicada en 2010 por los críticos de El Cultural. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Published four years after Travesuras de la niña mala, El sueño del celta is based on the provocative life of Irishman Roger Casement, one of the first to document human rights abuses in European-ruled colonies. Casement’s shocking revelations exposed the unspeakably barbarous acts Europeans were committing in the name of commerce, civilization, and Christianity. He became a militant for the Irish Nationalist cause, and during World War I conspired with the German government to purchase weapons for a revolt set to take place during the Easter holiday. But the weapons never made it to Irish shores, and the British brutally suppressed the Easter Rising. All Irish rebel leaders, including Casement, were executed. Many pleaded clemency for Casement including Arthur Conan Doyle, W.B. Yeats, and George B. Shaw.
