(The Revolution is an Eternal Dream)
In La revolución es un sueño eterno Andrés Rivera questions the Argentine past and shows some of the features with which the country was born in the early 19th century. The conclusion is dramatic: there are chapters of our history that seem to repeat without remedy. Perhaps that is why, Castelli seems to be our contemporary in spite of the great temporal distance that separates us from him and his time.
The turbulent days of May 1810 are far away now. After being one of the representatives of the First Assembly and the great orator of the revolution, Juan Jose Castelli is confined in his house, defeated as a politician and consumed by a disease that will take him to death.
La revolución es un sueño eterno is a splendid novel, in which Andrés Rivera shows, in a singular way, his great competence as narrator, his suggestive mastery of language and his remarkable ability to illuminate crystallized zones of official historical discourse.
