Light of Day Pilgrimage


Categoría: Etiqueta:

In Peregrinación de Luz del Día (Light of Day Pilgrimage), Juan Bautista Alberdi asks about the civilization-barbarism dichotomy proposed by Domingo Faustino Sarmiento and ironically, through the allegorical journey of his hermaphrodite character Luz del Día. The story is an intellectual effort to modernize Argentina and improve the condition of its inhabitants, who long for an environment free of oppression.
