Book DescriptionIn this essay, the great Mexican author Carlos Fuentes analyzes the search for Latin American identity. From the author of Aura, The Eagle's Throne, Where the Air Is Clear, The Death of Artemio Cruz. Carlos Fuentes won the 1994 Prince of Asturias Prize, the 1987 Cervantes Prize, the 1994 Grinzane Cavour International Prize, and many other distinctions. Cultures fossilize if they are isolated, but they are born or reborn upon contact with other men and women men and women of another culture, another creed, another race. If we don't recognize our humanity in others, we will never recognize it in ourselves. From the obsidian mirrors buried in the Totonac city of El Tajín to the Iberian mirrors of Cervantes and Velázquez that of insanity and that of amazement an exchange of cultural reflections has come and gone from one shore of the Atlantic to the other throughout more than fifteen years. This essay tells the story. We only see ourselves completely in the unearthed mirror of identity when we appear alongside another then we are finally capable of examining the consequences of our actions and converting the experience into knowledge.
