Great Literature Discussion Group: The Death of Artemio Cruz by Carolos Fuentes
October 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Literary works will be discussed based on what can be found in the text in order to enrich each other’s interpretation of the novel/novella. All are welcome to join and any edition or translation of the book under discussion can be used.
A dying man looks back on the revolution with which he rose to power and wealth, but whose ideals were corrupted and betrayed. Mexico’s most celebrated author, Carlos Fuentes spearheaded the Latin American literary bloom of the 1960s and was an outspoken critic of US imperialism.
Read the novella in advance and be prepared to discuss the aspects of interest to you by referring to specific related text and reading it to the group. Moderated by Ethical NYC member Gunther Tielemans. For access, please contact Gunther, membership coordinator Maggie Determann, or see our Ethical Weekly and daily event emails.
