Format:Paperback
This is a very insightful book today as much as it was when it was first published in the late 19th century. It really is a work of art as much as a statement of our image to others. Everyone should have to read this book as they question the reality that sculpted their identity. The only thing that is missing is more information on Latin American values and shortcomings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch this jewel essay ! 8 Nov 2004
By Hiram Gomez Pardo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Rodo was besides a remarkable thinker a poet . In these pages you will find important reflections about the values who feed the Greek Civilization and Rodo in the middle of his efervescent mind considers the posibility to turn back this dream in America .

Expressions such as : "For the greeks the word was before anything a will appendix" or "Greece shone because it had the young soul" are the final result of a long period of reflection and deep thinking .

A neglected book that it deserves a better place in the world .

5.0 out of 5 stars tremendo trabajo, aun vigente 24 May 2007
By A. Amaya - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Si de modernismo, liberalismo y jacobinismo se trata... aqui tiene un trabajo que fuera cumbre entre los ensayos latinoamericanos en los albores del siglo XX.

Advertencia preliminar: No nos engañemos, Ariel no es una obra fácil de leer, ni una novela para pasar un rato ameno, no obstante, valdrá la pena si se está dispuesto a invertir el tiempo y esfuerzo intelectual que demanda. Si lo que usted busca es leer algo por mero entretenimiento, seguramente hará mejor en buscar cualquiera de los tantos otros buenos trabajos de la literatura hispana, que satisfacen dicho fin, pero no este.

Rodó, llama a la juventud latinoamericana a rechazar el materialismo, y regresar a los ideales greco-romanos de mejoramiento propio, el libre pensamiento y el desarrollo de la cultura. Rodó es considerado por mucho como el teórico del modernismo -liderado por Rubén Darío.

Leer "Ariel" es interiorizarse con un ensayo que ha estado vigente por mas de un siglo entre los pueblos hispanos; ya sea que usted acuerde o no con los ideales del autor, esta lectura podria contribuir a incrementar nuestro acervo cultural y literario...

5.0 out of 5 stars Una lectura de reflexion 6 Jun 2008
By Maribel Rodriguez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Rodo describe en este ensayo su concepcion de America Latina y de los Estados Unidos. Es una America Latina que posa su esperanza en su juventud, a quien aconseja desprenderse de un materialismo utilitario y apreciar los valores humanitarios del ser humano. Si bien Rodo no apoya el espiritu intervencionista de los americanos, si les reconoce en este ensayo su espiritu de libertad, capacidad para autogobernarse efectivamente bajo un regimen federalista, y por su capacidad creadpra en todas las areas tales como la investigacion y ciencias, la cultura, educacion y deportes.

5.0 out of 5 stars The reason to understand latin america failure in XX century 7 Nov 2009
By Alejandro Garcia De La V - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In recent years, several papers (e.g. Sebastian Edwards, John Elliot, etc.) consider this book as the main ideology that drove latin america to a direct economic and political failure for the XX century.
Every person that wants to understand latin american modern history, must read this book.
Of course the thoughts of Rodo are not anymore viable for any modern country (just for Venezuela, Cuba or Bolivia still).
