"La historia de Roger Casement se apaga y renace despues de su muerte. Sus restos fueron enterrados sin lapida, ni cruz, ni iniciales. Mario Vargas Llosa restituye la tesitura de un personaje asombroso que vivio entre 1864 y 1916. Fue diplomatico britanico, denuncio grandes crimenes que se cometieron en el Congo y en la Amazonia en nombre del colonialismo, y milito activamente en el nacionalismo irlandes. Pero ni en el Congo ni en la Amazonia ha quedado rastro de quien tanto hizo. En Irlanda, esparcidos por la isla, quedan apenas unos cuantos recuerdos suyos. Mario Vargas Llosa lo trae al presente, en esta novela impresionante, con la contundencia de quien hizo de su vida un ejercicio de libertad intelectual."

3.0 The Dream of the Celt: A Novel

I am not impressed by our Nobel Price winner. It's of course a capable book but not about something we didn't know. The Congo has been THE example of the most brutal exploitation in Africa. So that's history. The 'Celta' himself is not explored enough as a person. Roger Casement himself has a lot of...
