Yo, el Supremo by Augusto Antonio Roa Bastos ( Book )
174 editions published between 1974 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Yo el Supremo Dictador de la Republica: Ordeno que al acaecer mi muerte mi cadaver sea decapitado; la cabeza puesta en una pica por tres días en la Plaza de la Republica donde se convocara al pueblo al son de las campanas echadas al vuelo. Todos mis servidores civiles y militares sufriran pena de horca. Sus cadaveres seran enterrados en potreros de extramuros sin cruz ni marca que memore sus nombres". Esa inscripcion garabateada sorprende una manana a los secuaces del dictador, que corren prestos a eliminarla de la vida de los aterrados subditos del patriarca. Asi arranca una de las grandes novela de la literatura en castellano de este siglo: Yo el Supremo, de Augusto Roa Bastos, Premio Cervantes 1989. La obra no es sólo un extraordinario ejercicio de gran profundidad narrativa sino también un testimonio escalofriante sobre uno de los peores males contemporáneos: la dictadura. El déspota solitario que reina sobre Paraguay es, en la obra de Roa, el argumento para describir una figura despiadada que es asimismo metáfora de la biografía de América Latina
I, the Supreme by Augusto Antonio Roa Bastos ( Book )
10 editions published between 1986 and 2000 in English and held by 1,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: Latin America has seen, time and again, the rise of dictators, Supreme Leaders possessed of the dream of absolute power, who sought to impose their mad visions of Perfect Order on their own people. Latin American writers, in turn, have responded with fictional portraits of such figures, and no novel of this genre is as universally esteemed as Augusto Roa Bastos's I the Supreme, a book that draws on and reimagines the career of the man who was "elected" Supreme Dictator for Life in Paraguay in 1814. By turns grotesque, comic, and strangely moving, I the Supreme is a profound meditation of the uses and abuses of power-over men, over events, over language itself
