O Sonho do Celta baseia se na vida do irlandês Roger Casement cônsul britânico no Congo belga em inícios do século XX ue durante duas décadas denunciou as atrocidades do regime de Leopoldo II Este homem amigo de. 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

Review ç eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ò Mario Vargas Llosa

Umanos ‹ como também o comprovam os relatórios ue redigiu durante a estadia na Amazónia peruana militou activamente no fim da sua vida o nacionalismo irlandês acabando condenado à morte por traição e executad. I had about a 500 word review of this novel written when my computer decided to restart of its own volition Ugh So let me recap what I was going to say in briefThings with any version of Celt in the title are usually campy garbage this is not Historical fiction is usually just studied nostalgia this is not This is a vibrant sensitive nuanced portrait of an intriguing figure Sir Roger Casement offering a fair account of his life relatively free of worship while still paying homage to his achievements The story is remarkable the writing is excellent Adventurer anti colonialist diplomat humanitarian Irish nationalist traitor to the British crown Casement was all of these things and this book gives all sides of him their due It is written with such an attention to detail and a confidence of voice that it almost steps into the realm of biography I recommend it highly Mario Vargas Llosa deserves accolades for this book And Casement deserves the attention he is given
