La Tregua Mario Benedetti Apr 28, 2008
Benedetti describes well the emotional changes in a middle age man. The story transcurre in the 50's, when a man was considered old and almost finish by age 49. La Tregua, the truce, is the last opportunity to love before confronting old age,solitude, and again painfull loss, is that parenthesis some times so brief, we forget to pause and enjoy. The woman passivity and resignation to the events is very latinamerican and according to the 50's. The inclusion of homoexuality, was very honest and brave, even though triying to explain it in the time of the story might no look politically correct now. A different, beautiful and perhaps depressing love story.
