The best of Eduardo Mallea’s many volumes of essays, this collection was first published in 1937 and predates all of his novels, which pulled existential themes from these writings. Written from the perspective of a liberal thinker in Argentina who saw his nation in the 1930s as being dominated by repressive forces that betrayed the fundamental ideals upon which the country was built, this collection serves as both the author’s spiritual autobiography and a contribution to the history of Argentina.
