Item description for La Ingratitud de Sarmiento (Spanish Edition) by Juan Carlos Casas...
One of the most remarkable travel books ever written is undoubtedly "Travels through Europe, Africa and North America 1845/1847 " by the Argentine Domingo Faustino Sarmiento, in which he describes his trip to "analyze the institutions that delay or advance their progress". "Tavels" carefully details thoughts, anecdotes, descriptions and expenditures, but there is visible incongruence: Sarmiento "does not recall" the name of the American lady who helped him with an undisclosed ammount of money in Pennsylvania. How come the careful, highly polite Sarmiento shows himself as an ungrateful, forgetter of his benefactress? Could he be chivalrously concealing the name of a lady whose reputation he might harm due to a secret love affair? Juan Carlos Casas believes so, and fills-in the gap based on the tenuous traces a careful Sarmiento fails to conceal completely, while keeping the rhythm and attractiveness of the issues that concerned the traveller at the time.
