Then come the noon horseback ride to the peasant woman's shack, the forced seduction down to complete surrender in body and soul, and t In Sin rumbo Cambaceres portraits scenes of the Argentine upper class at the turn of the XIX Century.

Then come the noon horseback ride to the peasant woman's shack, the forced seduction down to complete surrender in body and soul, and the whim of a night spent together with the sensations that assault and repulse him.

The flight to the mundane life in Buenos Aires, the club, the theatres, complete the portrait of a lost man who ends up facing nature in his way back to the estancia, in pursuit of a family life destiny will end up denying him.

Cambaceres shows his literary power not only through his intellectual vision and deep knowledge of the argentine spirit, but also through the language prowess of conveying the true upper class "porteno" talk, that familiar Spanish jargon tainted with semi-french semi-gaucho argot that was so particular of his contemporaries and still subsists nowadays, though veiled to the unknowing.

Mar 08, Sarah rated it did not like it Shelves: argentina. Dear Argentine School Children, I am sorry you have to read this in school. Hey, at least it's short, no? Feb 27, Cecilia rated it liked it Shelves: books-read-in-spanish. To be honest, I bought this book like three years ago and started reading it but then dropped it, and now a couple of days ago while doing some cleaning up, I found it and decided to give Cambaceres a second shot.

I know I tend to read foreing writers more than national or Latin American authors, so I went for it and finished the story yesterday while returning from work.

Jan 08, Sam rated it really liked it Shelves: latin-american , school-lit. It is a good read although, like in just about all my experiences with Naturalism, the protagonist is a total jerk. He treats women like they are nothing, is apparently manic depressive wild mood swings , and is totally self-obsessed.

You have to be able to get beyond his shortcomings and examine how he deals with European philosophy of the day, and the impact this has on his life. The final scene is completely over-the-top, and I highly recommend staged group reenactments of it. Sep 10, Kristen rated it liked it. I had to read this for a Spanish class, but it was pretty interesting.

My first adult Spanish novel, it is a good representation of naturalism. Excellent-built character in a determined historic period. Stunning ending, it left me speechless.
