Juvenilia (1884) is a book of memories of experiences of the student days of Miguel Cané, Argentine writer, politician, lawyer and journalist.
Between nostalgia and total longing, the author reviews some adolescent episodes that marked him especially:

  • their entry into school,
  • the very early awakenings,
  • the runs to get out of the enclosure and go to parties,
  • Also, the revelries.

The author highlights the presence and rigor of the French educator Amadeo Jacques (1813-1865). Amadeus was a political exile of Napoleon III. He was the director of the National College where Cané studied and largely responsible for the academic structure that would make Buenos Aires the headquarters of one of the most prestigious Argentine educational institutions.
Cané passed through the classrooms of the National College between 1863 and 1868. Over time, Juvenilia became a classic of testimonial character, possibly the best review of the work of that School. Juvenilia is a work with moving passages, with personal secrets, and hints of the teenager who later became a man of letters and politics.

“Nothing I have written with greater pleasure than these memories. While trying to achieve the style I had proposed, I smiled sometimes when I collided with the enormous difficulties that arise for those who want to write with simplicity.
It is that simplicity is life and truth, and there is nothing more difficult than to penetrate that sanctuary. The word is rebellious, the phrase loses the serenity of its march, and all the resources of our admirable language are usually inert for those who do not know how to communicate the action to them.
I certainly have not managed to approach my ideal, but I am happy with my effort, because if I have not found it, at least I have sought the right path.”
