Book review

Peru's famed author, the anthropologist and ethnographer José Mariá Arguedas (1911-1969), takes agri-cultural mythic energies into an urban, socio-cultural context. His characters recreate mythological consciousness in their manner of addressing one another and in their use of language, that regenerates a mythic feeling for nature and language potentially strong enough to overcome divisive, epic habits of speech and thought.
The critical issue that faced Arguedas and that confronts us is the relation of past ways of life to the future of the planet. Particularly in his last novel, The Fox Above, The Fox Below, Arguedas pits against the human propensity for sacrifice, conversations raised beyond dialectic to the healing and totalizing powers of myth.
