Aura by Carlos Fuentes

This Carlos Fuentes first book, and it is perhaps his easiest to read. Everything else he wrote with the exception of Gringo Viejo is extremely difficult. I saw him speak once absolutely brillant.

The Aeneid by Virgil
Rate this book
Clear rating
It was harder than the Iliad and the Odysseus. They say Jose Marti the Cuban revolutionary use to read Aenid as he charged into battle armed with a pistol and Virgil. Spouting bullets and poetry. Both equally deadly in my view. Woe to Dido.
