  • Joselito Honestly and Brilliantly

    This is the second volume of Eduardo Galeano's "Memory of Fire," one entry in the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die. Four hundred sixty-three readers have rated it and it has an average rating of 4.49. If you feel too lazy, tired or busy, or too old and have not much time left in this world to read all three volumes then don't. But you must, and I say this with urgency and great conviction, you must read at least one of these three volumes for you simply cannot die, as it is unimaginable t [...]

    Delicioso, erudito, inteligente e infunde um senso de justiça tolamente esquecido nos dias de hoje. Uma história das Américas sob um ponto de vista que ninguém valoriza. Ou melhor escrevendo, quase ninguém. Junte-se. Para alguns pode parecer a descrição de um mundo inexistente, para outros pode parecer a descrição do seu dia-a-dia. Se são apenas sonhos também pouco importa. A leitura será sempre decisiva.

    يتابع غاليانو ما بدأه في الجزء الأول من سرد لتاريخ أمريكا اللاتينية بنصوص حافلة بالحياة ومليئة بجميع أنواع المشاعر الإنسانية؛ القهر، والألم، والجشع، والفخر وغيرها يتابع رسم ملحمته بكثير من الاختلاف الذي يجعل هذا النص واحدا من أكثر النصوص التاريخية فرادة ومرة أخرى لا بد من [...]

    كتاب جميل. لقد استمتعت كثيرًا بمعرفة أحداث وقعت أمريكا الإيبيرية القرن الثامن عشر والتاسع عشر. أحببت هذا الكتاب أكثر من الكتاب الأول. غاليانو الرائع.

    Continues from where it left off - 1700 to be precise, and takes you through 200 yrs of American history, the history of N and S America. The Europeans have arrived and continue their plunder. Minor and major uprisings arise everywhere, some put down, some successful. Countries become independent, but borders keep getting reshaped, as greed, trade, meddling keep countries at war.Interesting how once the European powers realised they could no longer hold these lands with their armies, the moved o [...]


  • James

    a brutal reportage of the 'conquest' of the Americas by savages (white settlers, missionaries, explorers, and glory seekers) told in his inimical style, with passion and facts intermingled with polemics about politics and race and social justice, this book continues the trilogy admirably, bringing to the forefront how the treatment of indigenous peoples by 'civilized man' puts the lie to Western Civ narratives Americans are spoonfed by their schools, their media, and their politicians but it sho [...]

    وكنا ننتزع أنفسنا من الريح بأظافرنا. خوان رولفوهدأ الغدير وعلى ضفافه استلقى التمساح معرضا جذعه المدرع لأشعة الشمس، وبينما كانت عيناه تبحثان عن فريسة تقافزت القردة مهتاجة في الغابة، سُمعت أصوات الكعوب الراكضة على ممشى الأوراق فشُلت الغابة وحين دوى صوت الطلقة الأولى فرت بأك [...]

    1785: GuanajuatoSilver PortraitUsing the language of fluttering fans, ladies chat in the leafy gardens. Somebody pees against the wall of the church and on one side of the plaza two beggars, sitting in the sun, pick at each other's lice. Beneath the stone archway a distinguished doctor in a huge cloak talks of the Rights of Man, and a monk moves down the lane muttering eternal condemnations against the drunks, whores, and rowdies who cross in front of him. Not far from the city,collectors hunt I [...]

    Moments of extreme beauty throughout this epic retelling of the history of the Americas. Galeano writes vignettes gleaned from hundreds of historical accounts -- the book itself is a gaping, mouthwatering portal to the vast bibliography in its final pages.Galeano treats history as poetry and, while this is non-fiction, Memoria del Fuego is written with the grace and astonishing insight of the best poetry. Galeano takes a concert of the Guaraní Indians, brought to Buenos Aires by the Jesuits to [...]

    Were it not shot through with humor, this would be a book of unbearable grief and fury. E.g. the short piece called "Fiction in the Colonial Era (1785: Mexico City)": The viceroy of Mexico, Matias de Galvez, signs a new edict in favor of Indian workers. The Indians are to receive fair wages, good food, and medical attention; and they will have two rest hours at noon, and be able to change employers whenever they like. (69) There are also moments of beauty, as in "They Carry Life in Their Hair":F [...]

    "The blue tiger will smash the world.Another land, without evil, without death, will be born from the destruction of this one. This land wants it. It asks to die, asks to be born, this old and offended land. It is weary and blind from so much weeping behind closed eyelids. On the point of death it strides the days, garbage heap of time, and at night it inspires pity from the stars. Soon the First Father will hear the world's supplications, land wanting to be another, and then the blue tiger who [...]

    i first found this series on my parents' shelves when i was younger, i would read parts of them. it's either this one or the first one that has my favorite quote."they were two by an error that night corrects"i have since come to doubt that quote as beautiful as it is. maybe they were two for a reason and night fucked up, although it was a beautiful fuckup for awhile. but i'm young and who knows, and i'll always miss him.

    Talking about New World with rhymes, poems, aphorisms. In this book, Galeano talks about discourse of power play that restructure all Latin America. The biggest impact is the loss of indigenous identity.


  • Florence

    Part two of a trilogyLiterary geniusGaleano takes historical "bits and bites" and reminds us of the past of Latin America and America during years of 1700 to 1900, encouraging review and research of the vast number of historical events he touches on.


  • Jake Buckholz

    Galeano continues his climb towards becoming my favorite writer.


  • Arif Mustafa

    Marvellous - a poet writes history


  • Robbie Bruens

    The second part of Galeano's trilogy is even more powerful and compelling than the first. It's also funny, mordant, insightful, inspiring and full of some of the most dynamic characters you'll ever meet in any work of fiction or nonfiction. And I would be remiss to mention how ingeniously Galeano combines fiction and nonfiction. The book can be called fiction because Galeano weaves together a tapestry of historical episodes in his own idiosyncratic and particular way, through his own artistic le [...]


  • Tim

    Galeano writes with a grim poetic fury in this book, providing brief glimpses into the history of the Americas. This volume (number 2 in a trilogy) covers 1700 to 1900, the time of colonialism, revolution, and economic imperialism. His history is one of both impression and depth as it describes the lives of the oppressed and the revolutionary, the mythical and the heroic. The writing focuses on the Indian and the slave, mestizo and mulatto, seeing whites largely in the roles of economic and poli [...]

    No me esperaba menos, un muy buen libro y puedo destacar demasiados párrafos que me llaman la atención, uno de ellos "¡Vea la Europa cómo inventa, y vea la América cómo imita!Unos toman por prosperidad el ver sus puertos llenos de barcos ajenos, y sus casas convertidas en almacenes de efectos ajenos.¿Dónde iremos a buscar modelos? Somos independientes, pero no libres;dueños del suelo, pero no de nosotros mismos.Abramos la historia: y por lo que aún no está escrito, lea cadauno en su m [...]

    Like much of his other writing, Galeano writes novels composed of very short stories/vignettes within the novel, so that I'm not sure it should even be characterized as a novel's not quite short stories, but the form is a little hard to get used to. At least in this book, there is some linearity as each vignette progresses forward in time. This book covers the period 1700-1900 in Latin America. I often find myself confused, but if I stick with it or reread passages I'll figure out the allusions, [...]

    No me esperaba menos de la continuación de la Trilogía, para ser el segundo el libro superó al primero y me espera lo mejor, el final. Me gustaría recalcar "¡Vea la Europa cómo inventa, y vea la América cómo imita!Unos toman por prosperidad el ver sus puertos llenos de barcos ajenos, y sus casas convertidas en almacenes de efectos ajenos. Cada día llega una remesa de ropa hecha, y hasta de gorras para los indios." Se dice que nuestra historia condenará,mi sangre es de indio masacrado y [...]


  • Robert

    Onwards to volume two of the Memory of Fire trilogy!This time round Galeano tackles the years 1700 – 1900. Again there’s a lot dedicated to the suffering the Indians had to go through. However, there are more chapters on America turning into a superpower and the plight of black slavery. He also mentions how society is moving towards the contemporary era by mentioning products such as Levi’s and Coca-Cola.As such there’s no huge change in the writing style or approach. The standard still [...]


  • Comelibros

    Un buen comienzo, narra los diferentes mitos de los pueblos pre-hispánicos como; La creación y explicación de la naturaleza y el universo en si. La otra parte la llegada de los europeos al continente americano y que llegan a buscar fortuna; cambiando para siempre la estructura de dos mundos. “America y Europa”


  • Roopa Ramamoorthi

    This book by Eduardo Galeano in peotic langauage and short flash fiction like pieces covers the history of especially South America from around 1800 to 1900. It is a book most definitely worth reading if you want to find out about what happened during this time of colonization and conquests but told in a style that will mesmerize and haunt and linger long after you read the book.


  • Ben Peyton

    This one started off a little slower than the first book but I thought the second half of the book was excellent. A lot of moving stuff in this book. Galeano is just an amazing writer. He creates these scenes out of nothing and makes you care about the hundreds of characters, most of the nameless, you meet throughout the story. Well worth picking up.


  • Iván Olhaff
