NEW [El Gaucho Martín FierroLa vuelta de Martín Fierro]

Martin Fierro is a vivid snapshot of the life of people "oppressed by poverty injustice and violence It s also a portrait "by poverty injustice and violence It s also a portrait a fierce determination to live to make the best of difficult situations The spirit of life trumps oppression Such a wonderful story It s just the kind of thing you would expect to hear around the campfire as you share a mate with your friends I think I should explain that a mate is used by Spanish speakers to refer to the ourd used to drink yerba mate tea In Portuguese the word is cuia I didn t mean to suggest that people sit around a campfire sharing their beloved Although people often refer to the philosophy of Martin Fierro the deep thoughts seem to come from his friends and others that come across his path Martin liked to fight and he was a little to eager to use his knife Ah Martin Fierro This book contains two epic poems Martin Fierro and La vuelta de Martin Fierro I started the first in September but What Am I Doing with My Life?: And other late night internet searches answered by the great philosophers gave up due to the language I decided to finish them both in earnest last week and plowed thro I am not the best reader of epic poetry I think this book is probably worthy of a better audience and a better score but for me it was an average read I didn t find myself connected to the story in the way that I would to a novel I disliked the first part of this The protagonist has vices which are almost a parody of Anglo Saxon views of Latins strutting machismo boastfulness narcissism self pity cruelty and lack of self control Add to that the not specifically Latin but eually objectionable traits of racism misogyny xenophobia and a disregard for law and order and I nearly threw this down in disgust It doesn t help that the freuent puns are almost impossible to translate my Spanish is notood enough to read this in the original alas The second part partially redeems it There is Jimmy: The Terrorist genuine pathos when Fierro s sons describe their sad lives and the singing competition between Fierro and the black man is really ratherood All of a sudden I could imagine sitting out by an open fire on the pampas listening to the two of them strumming their How to Live the James Bond Lifestyle: The Complete Seminar guitars and singing responses to each other This was very atmospheric and there is a ratherood twist in this part of the narrative which I enjoyed as well Another thing which helped is that I have previously read Sarmiento s Facundo so I feel a familiarity with this period of Argentine history and it was More scary stories for sleep-overs good to have some poetry on the bones of Sarmiento s prose But my overall feeling aboutauchos is confirmed I have a certain admiration for their capacity to endure hardship and their undoubted bravery but I think it would be best to ive them a very wide berth especially if they have access to weapons alcohol or women For school It was awful I m not torture myself in read it again I just know it I LOVE this book I ve read it SOOO many times It is so beautiful I ve been interested in reading this book for a long time but was intimidated by the fact that it could only be read in Spanish While translations are available since it is written in the poetic style only the original language could truly capture the author s intent I finally dove in a few weeks ago and wh.

Ile I had to read with the book in one hand and the English translation in the other I uite enjoyed itThe two part story is essentially lengthy lamentation by the aucho Mart n Fierro wherein he enumerates his many travails Living a peaceful idyllic life as a The Interior Landscape: Love Poems from a Classical Tamil Anthology gaucho he is ripped from his home and family to serve theovernment as a soldier against Argentina s native inhabitants This begins a journey fraught with poverty danger disappointment despair "and crime Through Fierro author Jos Hern ndez illustrates the struggles "crime Through Fierro author Jos Hern ndez illustrates the struggles the common man He seems to be a fatalist expressing that some men like the auchos were born to suffer and be trampled by the privileged few Fierro maintains faith in God throughout the Story Accepting His Lot Rather Than Begrudging accepting his lot rather than begrudging was surprised to find out that Fierro was not the heroic figure I assumed he would be He is humble and constantly speaks of his own ignorance He is a realist and sometimes takes the cowardly route rather than the courageous one in order to survive He loses fights and in one case is saved from certain death at the hands of an enemy by a woman he has just met He is also not the picture of morality committing crimes and other offensive
