Book 800 Eduardo Galeano – Memory of Fire : Book 2 – Faces and Masks


Onwards to volume two of the Memory of Fire trilogy!

This time round Galeano tackles the years 1700 – 1900. Again there’s a lot dedicated to the suffering the Indians had to go through. However, there are more chapters on America turning into a superpower and the plight of black slavery. He also mentions how society is moving towards the contemporary era by mentioning products such as Levi’s and Coca-Cola.

As such there’s no huge change in the writing style or approach. The standard still is consistent and I enjoyed this volume as well.
