Adventures of the Unknown Cuban Soldier is the story of a Cuban who self-proclaims as the Unknown Soldier, killed in the European trenches, whose remains lie in Arlington Cemetery. Pablo de la Torriente Brau presents us with the story of an antihero lost in the senselessness of a war that is not his own. Through humor that ranges from biting satire to the cruelest parody, the narrative leads us to an interpretation with surprising ideological resonances.
In the context of the anti-war literary movement following World War I (1914-1918), several stories emerged that revealed the true and intimate history of the men who suffered the horror of the trenches. From the biting satire of “The Good Soldier Švejk” (1921) by Jaroslav Hašek, to the rawness of “All Quiet on the Western Front” (1929) by Erich Maria Remarque, many authors wrote about this war.
It is noteworthy that this pamphlet remained unfinished due to the author’s early death in Majadahonda, during the Spanish Civil War. Nevertheless, “Adventures of the Unknown Cuban Soldier” offers a unique and critical look at the war, contributing another perspective to the anti-war current of the time. The work immerses us in the horrors and absurdities of war, inviting us to reflect on its consequences in people’s lives.
