The Dream of the CeltDe (autor) Mario Vargas Llosa Traducere de Edith Grossman
en Limba Engleză Carte Hardback – June 2012
A subtle and enlightening novel about a neglected human rights pioneer by the Nobel Laureate Mario Vargas Llosa
In 1916, the Irish nationalist Roger Casement was hanged by the British government for treason. Casement had dedicated his extraordinary life to improving the plight of oppressed peoples around the world especially the native populations in the Belgian Congo and the Amazon but when he dared to draw a parallel between the injustices he witnessed in African and American colonies and those committed by the British in Northern Ireland, he became involved in a cause that led to his imprisonment and execution. Ultimately, the scandals surrounding Casement's trial and eventual hanging tainted his image to such a degree that his pioneering human rights work wasn't fully reexamined until the 1960s.
In "The Dream of the Celt," Mario Vargas Llosa, who has long been regarded as one of Latin America's most vibrant, provocative, and necessary literary voices a fact confirmed when he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2010 brings this complex character to life as no other writer can. A masterful work, sharply translated by Edith Grossman, "The Dream of the Celt "tackles a controversial man whose story has long been neglected, and, in so doing, pushes at the boundaries of the historical novel."
