    Excellent Piece of Literature!

    Fuentes made an extraordinary description of the Encounter of Two Worlds. This book provides a good historical reference of the ex-ante state of the pre-columbian world and the Spanish world before the Conquest of Mexico.

    Fuentes digs up the mirror that helps us to see Latin America from Spain, and Spain from Latin America

    Fuentes was commissioned to write El Espejo Enterrado for the quincentenary celebration of the Discovery of America in 1992 and begins the book asking whether or not Latin Americans really had something to celebrate. He dives into Latin American history starting with the invasion of the Iberian peninsula and continues until the apex of 1492. From there, he covers both Latin American and Spanish history starting from the indigenous civilizations until today--monarchy, revolutions, dictatorship, democracy, the whole shabang!

    The difference between a history book and Fuentes's work is that he makes BRILLIANT comparisons of people and events throughout history (both Latin American and Spanish). He also explains history through the art and literature of that period. Prepare yourself for Velázques, El Greco, Goya, Picasso, Dali, Rivera, Cervantes, Calderon de la Barca, García Lorca, San Juan de la Cruz, Sor Juana, Quevedo, Rojas, de Molina, Unamuno, and more.

    El Espejo Enterrado is a gateway to help you understand Spanish and Latin American history and culture. I found that this 1998 Taurus Bolsillo edition of El Espejo Enterrado did not have sufficient pictures compared to the 1992 Tierra Firme edition, which saves you time in looking up works of art. I believe Fuentes was only wrong on 3 occasions during the 573 pages, but that more than makes up for the brilliance in the rest of the book. His writing style is elevated, elegant, and sometimes hard to read through, but definitely worth reading! This obra summarizes five centuries worth of what Latin Americans and Spaniards have to celebrate. Though there is still much progress to be made, Fuentes takes us back to our roots and reconciles Latin America and Spain.

    I would have expected Carlos Fuentes to portray the story in a way that readers can understand. It is unjust how he neglects that fourteen year olds must read this as a class assignment for their spanish class.
