This book is the only one of its kind on the market. It deals with one of the most brilliant yet least known Latin American authors, Esteban EcheverrIa. EcheverrIa was the author of La Cautiva (The Captive), El Matadero (The Slaughterhouse), and Dogma Socialista (Socialist Dogma) which formed the base of the constitution of the Republic of Argentina. In Building A Nation, Juan Carlos Mercado recovers the figure of EcheverrIa through an analysis centralized in his work as a poet, thinker, and politician-all as one unit. The study takes into account the many sources, including European ones, that EcheverrIa used in order to formulate a literary and political national project. Readers of this work will acquire a thorough understanding of the significance of EcheverrIa's influence-from the introduction of European Romanticism into Argentine Literature; to the initiation of a critical and realistic narrative style never yet seen before in Argentina; to the founding of a liberal-humanist tendency which went on to acquire definitive political shape for the country.
