Genesis (Memory of Fire) free pdf "An epic work of literary creation . . . There could be no greater vindication of the wonders of the lands and people of Latin America than Memory of Fire.""" --"The Washington Post"Eduardo Galeano's monumental three-volume retelling of the history of the New World begins with "Genesis," a vast chain of legends sweeping from the birth of creation to the era of savage colonialism. Through lyrical prose and deep understanding, Galeano (author of the celebrated "Open Veins of Latin America") recounts creation myths, pre-Columbian societies, and the brutality of conquest, from the Andes to the Great Plains.Galeano's project to restore to history "breath, liberty, and the word" unfolds as a unique, powerful work of literature. This daring masterpiece sets the past free, weaving a new kind of history from mythology, silenced voices, and the clash of worlds. "Genesis "is the first book of the Memory of Fire trilogy, which continues with "Faces and Masks "and "Century of the Wind."
