• Research Paper on:
    Jose Enrique Rodo’s “Ariel”

    Number of Pages: 6


    Summary of the research paper:

    This 6 page report discusses the novel written in 1900 (and translated to English in 1988) “Ariel” by the Uruguayan writer, philosopher, and political activist, Jose Enrique Rodo (1872-1917). Although the novel is ostensibly a work of fiction, it is also an allegory or a treatise on the relationships that existed between North-Central-and South America at the turn of the 20th century. Just as Shakespeare’s own Ariel in “The Tempest” causes the audience or reader to reconsider their assumptions regarding the reality of those who want to present themselves as the standards of power, Rodo’s “Ariel” causes readers to reconsider the various power bases -- economic, social, cultural -- that exist between modern Latin America (Ariel) and the controlling and demanding United States (Prospero). Bibliography lists one source.
