Item description for Latin America: Awakening of a Continent by Ernesto Che Guevara...

This is the book to read after The Motorcycle Diaries, as it includes extensive excerpts of Che's later travel diaries in Latin America-before he reached Cuba.

This anthology presents a comprehensive selection of Che Guevara's writings on Latin America, from his youthful travel diaries to his fateful mission to Bolivia, illuminating a unique vision of a continent and its peoples, for whom Che so passionately fought.

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! La historia de la muerte del Che y su mitificaci n tiene todos los ingredientes de una saga moderna. Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, el editor de su Diario y art fice de una campa a medi tica para promover su imagen, estaba en Bolivia durante el periodo final de la guerrilla y poco antes de que el Che fuese ejecutado pas por Cuba buscando im genes suyas. Korda, el autor de la foto m s difundida del siglo xx, ten a unas copias de dicha imagen hecha unos a os antes y las cedi a Feltrinelli sin saber que su foto era una obra maestra que calar a muy hondo en el imaginario colectivo. Tras la muerte del Che y la llegada a Cuba de una copia de su Diario, Fidel Castro y Feltrinelli publicaron el libro y llenaron el mundo de carteles con su imagen. Por su parte, el artista irland s Jim Fitzpatrick dise una versi n pop de la c lebre imagen para la revista Scene que fue rechazada por esta tras considerarla demasiado radical. Entonces Fitzpatrick envi la imagen a la revista sat rica Private Eye y esta la hizo llegar al cr tico de arte Peter Meyer, quien invit a Fitzpatrick a participar en una exposici n titulada Viva Che!, anunciada con bombo y platillo en OZ, la revista por excelencia de la psicodelia setentera.
