Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A masterpiece of modernist fiction about one mans search for meaning, Dream of Reason (La sinrazón) reveals Rosa Chacel as an intellectual and literary innovator whose work stands alongside that of Joyce, Proust, and Woolf.
 
This meditative novel, grounded in the thinking of Spains great modern philosopher Ortega y Gasset, unfolds as the journal of a bourgeois chemist who makes his way in Buenos Aires just before and during the Spanish Civil War. Tracing his relationship with three women, Santiago Hernández explores the power of his own intentions and the limits of human reason. His introspective experiment, set against the background of world-altering events, documents the workings of a self-absorbed mind speculating on the inseparability of self and circumstance and is a brilliant enactment of how, from such tensions, narrative emerges.

About the Author

Rosa Chacel (1898-1994), one of the most promising pre-Civil War writers, was “rediscovered” in her native Spain after returning to Madrid from an exile of more than three decades. In addition to La sinrazón, her many works include Teresa, Memorias de Leticia Valle, and Barrio de Maravillas (The Maravillas District, Nebraska 1992).
 
Carol Maier also translated Chacels Memoirs of Leticia Valle (Nebraska 1994), for which she won the Modern Language Associations Aldo and Jeanne Scaglione Prize for a translation of a literary work, and the Eugene Kayden Translation Competitions Meritorious Achievement Award.
