Item description for Ariel (Spanish Edition) by José E. Rodó...

"'Ariel,' like Arnold's 'Culture and Anarchy' and Emerson's 'American Scholar,' is a key text in the longstanding debate concerning culture and democratization." --New York Times Book Review "Irritating, insufferable, admirable, stimulating, disappointing Rod: . . . you are part of our family quarrels, and must bear with your disrespectful, equally disappointed, intuitive, incomplete nephews, living in a world that you helped define for us, and offered unto our revolt."--from the Prologue by Carlos Fuentes First published in 1900 Uruguay, Ariel is Latin America's most famous essay on esthetic and philosophical sensibility, as well as its most discussed treatise on hemispheric relations. Though Rod protested the interpretation, his allegorical conflict between Ariel, the lover of beauty and truth, and Caliban, the evil spirit of materialism and positivism, has come to be regarded as a metaphor for the conflicts and cultural differences between Latin America and the United States. Generations of statesmen, intellectuals, and literary figures have been formed by this book, either in championing its teachings or in reacting against them. This edition of Ariel, prepared especially with teaehers and students in mind, contains a reader's guide to names, places, and important movements, as well as notes and a comprehensive annotated English/Spanish bibliography.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ariel (Spanish Edition)?

Una lectura de reflexion  Jun 6, 2008
Rodo describe en este ensayo su concepcion de America Latina y de los Estados Unidos. Es una America Latina que posa su esperanza en su juventud, a quien aconseja desprenderse de un materialismo utilitario y apreciar los valores humanitarios del ser humano. Si bien Rodo no apoya el espiritu intervencionista de los americanos, si les reconoce en este ensayo su espiritu de libertad, capacidad para autogobernarse efectivamente bajo un regimen federalista, y por su capacidad creadpra en todas las areas tales como la investigacion y ciencias, la cultura, educacion y deportes.
Way Overrated  Jun 2, 2007
This book was required reading. Sadly, I fail to see why people find this to be an important text. It is a very flat read devoid of anything interesting. If you like reading incoherent dreams and delusional rambling then this is your book!
tremendo trabajo, aun vigente  May 24, 2007
Si de modernismo, liberalismo y jacobinismo se trata... aqui tiene un trabajo que fuera cumbre entre los ensayos latinoamericanos en los albores del siglo XX.

Advertencia preliminar: No nos engañemos, Ariel no es una obra fácil de leer, ni una novela para pasar un rato ameno, no obstante, valdrá la pena si se está dispuesto a invertir el tiempo y esfuerzo intelectual que demanda. Si lo que usted busca es leer algo por mero entretenimiento, seguramente hará mejor en buscar cualquiera de los tantos otros buenos trabajos de la literatura hispana, que satisfacen dicho fin, pero no este.

Rodó, llama a la juventud latinoamericana a rechazar el materialismo, y regresar a los ideales greco-romanos de mejoramiento propio, el libre pensamiento y el desarrollo de la cultura. Rodó es considerado por mucho como el teórico del modernismo -liderado por Rubén Darío.

Leer "Ariel" es interiorizarse con un ensayo que ha estado vigente por mas de un siglo entre los pueblos hispanos; ya sea que usted acuerde o no con los ideales del autor, esta lectura podria contribuir a incrementar nuestro acervo cultural y literario...
Watch this jewel essay !  Nov 8, 2004
Rodo was besides a remarkable thinker a poet . In these pages you will find important reflections about the values who feed the Greek Civilization and Rodo in the middle of his efervescent mind considers the posibility to turn back this dream in America .
Expressions such as : "For the greeks the word was before anything a will appendix" or "Greece shone because it had the young soul" are the final result of a long period of reflection and deep thinking .
A neglected book that it deserves a better place in the world .
Ariel  May 1, 2000
Este libro es complicadisimo de entender y si no esta dispuesto a dedicar mucho tiempo a leer y ha entender un libro de tanta complexidad y enredo no se lo recomiendo a nadie.
