"1907. Leon, Nicaragua. During a tribute which he delivers during his triumphal return to his native city, Ruben Dario writes on the fan of a little girl one of his most famous poems, "Margarita, How Beautiful the Sea."" "1956. In a cafe in Leon, a group of literati gather, dedicated to, among other things, the rigorous reconstruction of the legend surrounding Dario - and also to conspire. There will be an attempt against dictator Sornoza's life, and that little girl with the fan a half-century before, will not be a disinterested party." "In Margarita, How Beautiful the Sea, Sergio Ramirez encompasses, in a complete metaphor of reality and legend, the entire history of his country. The narrative moves along paths 50 years apart, which inevitably converge. The story becomes a fascinating exercise in the power of memory, in the influence of the past, fictitious or not, in the finality of reality."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
