No, the “Ariel” mentioned in the title isn’t the redheaded Disney mermaid. In his configuration, he is himself the ejglish Prospero, the old man — what President Obama would probably call the adult in the room — who observes the power play between dirty, opportunistic Caliban the United States and Ariel Latin Americathe boyish, artistic spirit whose idealism and altruism will ultimately allow him to triumph over the former.
Nevermind wnglish it is, in fact, Prospero and not Caliban who enslaves Ariel in Shakespeare’s enriique. Insert joke about homosexual panic here. View all 3 comments.

Line one, page one of the prologue, by Carlos Fuentes: Then, however, there’s Rodo, who’s suggests a new identity for Latin America based on the classic cultures, instead of the mediocrity of the American enterprise.

With French Philosophy in one hand, and Greek Geography in another, he builds a mountain of decorative language.
Which is all well and fine. It ends up a beautifully written essay, rofo a bit over wrought, which fits in with being published in by a eurocentric. Mind you, there’s some little bits of racism, and misguided biological theory, but that’s standard with essays of the time.
I’d give it more stars, but Latin American intellectual history is not something that I’ve ever researched. So I was reading it decontextualized from the basis of approach that the printers and translators were presenting it towards. Which leads us to 5 stars for englixh well written essay. I mean, he references some stuff I would like to read, and some stuff that inspired books that I have liked, but I’m not versed enough to get into the essay’s world, and it’s not good enough to pull me out of my world.
Does that make sense? Neglish 18, Germano rated it liked it.

Ultimately, the society that he advocates for though this is clearly stated only once is one in which artistic and creative endeavors are valued and in which everyone is offered equal opportunities for success with the full knowledge that each individual will take a different path – a society that seems to me like it would be pretty alright! I emphasize his gendered language because it adds even another layer of elitism to his writing. He does place this elitism within a paternalistic framework in which the elites take care of the non-elites, but elitism it still is and I shouldn’t have to say that that’s no good in any circumstances.
A mixed bag for sure. It’s worth a read – there is a lot of value to be found in this essay – but you’ll have to wade through a whole lot of BS to get to it.
Oct 05, Paul A. Algo para destacar de su ensayo Ariel, es la belleza y delicadeza de su escritura, ese modernismo latente en su pluma, donde se ve claramente reflejada esa influencia de estilo francesa.
Inculcando el saber en lo individual y por medio del amor, compartirlo con englisu humanidad. Nos lleva de esa individualidad que conlleva el saber, el adquirir conocimiento, a lo colectivo-desinteresado de expresarlo y darle una utilidad altruista.

Ariel denounces Caliban’s materialism and Benthamian utilitarianism. Latin-American youth must not be seduced by the North American serpent; they must enriqie “nordomania. But Ariel is more than a criticism of the U. It is a treatise on humanity and society at-large.
