  • A subtle and enlightening novel about a neglected human rights pioneer by the Nobel Laureate Mario Vargas LlosaIn 1916, the Irish nationalist Roger Casement was hanged by the British government for treason Casement had dedicated his extraordinary life to improving plight of oppressed peoples around the world especially the native populations in the Belgian Congo and theA subtle and enlightening novel about a neglected human rights pioneer by the Nobel Laureate Mario Vargas LlosaIn 1916, the Irish nationalist Roger Casement was hanged by the British government for treason Casement had dedicated his extraordinary life to improving plight of oppressed peoples around the world especially the native populations in the Belgian Congo and the but when he dared to draw a parallel between the injustices he witnessed in African and American colonies and those committed by the British in Northern Ireland, he became involved in a cause that led to his imprisonment and execution Ultimately, the scandals surrounding Casement s trial and eventual hanging tainted his image to such a degree that his pioneering human rights work wasn t fully reexamined until the 1960s.Vargas Llosa, who has long been regarded as one of Latin America s most vibrant, provocative, and necessary literary voices a fact confirmed when the Peruvian writer was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2010 brings this complex character to life as no other writer can This masterful work, sharply translated by Edith Grossman, tackles a controversial man whose story has long been neglected, and in so doing, pushes at the boundaries of historical novel.

    1. Another piece of marvelous historical fiction like The War at the End of the World, Dream of the Celt follows the historical figure of Roger Casement through his humanitarian odysseys to horrors committed by Belgian colonizers and rubber barons in Congo to the atrocities committed by Peruvian colonizers and rubber barons of ia. The latter certainly overlaps with the events described in The Green House somewhat albeit those events were a few decades later, proving that Casement was right that the [...]

    3. Roger Casement by Sarah Purser, oil on canvasHmm. Fictionalised biography. Is it a good idea? Can it be successful? How best should it be done? The Dream of the Celt caused me to ask myself such questions and more.The way I understand the genre of fictionalised biography, the author gets to create memories for his subject, to reveal intimate details about his life, to attribute motives to his actions, to put words in his mouth. It is no accident that most fictionalised biographies are written af [...]

    5. حلم السلتي كثيراً ما نواجه ذلكم السؤال التبخيسي، ما قيمة الرواية؟ ولماذا نقرؤها؟ وكثيراً ما تتعدد الإجابات، وكلها إجابات دفاعية، تنسب للرواية المعرفة والحكمة، وكل ما من شأنه أن يجعل الرواية مقبولة ومعترف بها في عالم المتجهمين، ولكن الرواية ليست هذا كله، ونحن ندرك ذلك، فنح [...]


    6. UN UOMO È MOLTI UOMINI L'uomo Roger Casement, il celta del sogno e protagonista di questo romanzo, ha in sé molti uomini, personalità molteplici e diverse?Uno dei tanti ritratti fotografici di Roger Casement.Irlandese, vissuto dal 1864 al 1916, contrariamente alla maggior parte dei suoi connazionali, non cresce cattolico, ma lo diventa solo in tarda età.A vent’anni, appena possibile, parte per l’Africa convinto che l’Occidente avrebbe aperto agli africani la strada verso la modernità [...]


    7. The list of atrocities committed by short, ugly men with sexual complexes and inhuman proclivities means that evil is legion--it is omnipresent and as real today as 100 years ago. "One of the great anti-colonial fighters and defenders of human rights and indigenous cultures of his time, and a sacrificed combatant for the emancipation of Ireland" (354) is the man, Roger Casement. MVL hooked himself another incredible biography this time to cement properly into itty, bitty literature for all of et [...]


    8. Roger Casement was an Irishman who famously revealed the atrocities in the rubber industries in, first, the Congo and, then, the in the early 1900s. He saw a similarity in the mistreatment of the natives in Africa and South America to the British suffocation of Ireland and made the latter his final cause. Unwisely, he courted Germany during the First World War, hoping to link with England's enemy in what he thought a common cause. He was deemed to be a traitor; arrested, convicted and then hung [...]


    9. السلتيمناضل أم خائنيقال العبرة بالنهايات,و نهاية حلم السلتي كانت المشنقة فهل يؤرخ لروجر كيسمنت في التاريخ على انه بطل قومي دفع حياته ثمنا لاستقلال بلاده أم يؤرخ لهذه الشخصية كخائن لبلاد أعطته الكثير الا حرية بلده الأصلي ايرلندا,هذا ما يحاول ماريو فرغاس يوسا أن يفصله في رواي [...]


    10. هذه الرواية العظيمة تحمل كل صفات النبل إنها تعيد التاريخ المخزي والمنسي تلك الحقبة الإستعمارية اللعينة المتاجرة بالأرواح المتاجرة بالأجساد والمتاجرة بالثروات في بيرو في القارة الأفريقية الشاسعة التي من سوء حظها إنها كانت تغص بحياة الجهل والتخلف لذلك وجد البلجيكيون والب [...]


    11. من الكونغو إلى البيرو، من قنصل للتاج البريطاني إلى ثائر عليه، من رمز تحتفي به المملكة إلى سجين تهاجمه صحافتها. أحسن يوسا باختيار روجر كيسمنت كموضوع لروايته الضخمة. فشخصية بعمق شخصية كيسمنت وبساطتها وتأثيرها وتبدلات مسيرتها مدعاة للتأمل والتفكر. لن اتحدث عن الشخصية اكثر من ذ [...]


    12. هي قصة عن آيرلندي ولكن ليس ككل الآيرلنديين،وهي قصة عن أوروبي آمن ولكنه لم يكن كأي أوروبيولم يكن إيمانه كأي إيمان.هي قصة السلتي وكان على قدر الصلابة والصلادة الموحية من إسمه،رجل اقتنع بالإنسان فانطلق ليدافع عنه ويحارب لأجله بغض النظر عن لونه وجيشه ودينه،توغل في غابات الكونغ [...]


    13. التاريخ الفعلي للشعوب ليس هو حياة الملوك والأمراء وحياة بلاط الحكم ومن خلاله نحكم على حياتهم، بل التاريخ هو حياة الشعوب، كيف يعيشوا، كيف يأكلوا، هل هم في مأمن أم في استبداد متعجرف.لطالما ألهمتني حياة الثوار فهم يضعوا حياتهم تحت المشانق ليحققوا حرية من يأتي بعدهم ولو بمئة سن [...]


    14. الآن -وبعد التجربة الثانية!-تيقنت أن يوسا يكتب لي! ومن الأقلام التي تُرضي ذاك التعطش القرائي/المعرفي لديّ والذي حالما يصل إلى حالة الارتواء، يعود ضارعاً إلى ما قبل الثمالة متوسلاً السُقْيا من جديدعليك عزيزي الشارع في قراءة هذه الرواية أن تعدّ نفسك قبل عينيك لتحمّل عبء ليالٍ [...]


    15. I had about a 500-word review of this novel written when my computer decided to restart of its own volition. Ugh. So let me recap what I was going to say, in brief.Things with any version of "Celt" in the title are usually campy garbage: this is not. Historical fiction is usually just studied nostalgia: this is not. This is a vibrant, sensitive, nuanced portrait of an intriguing figure, Sir Roger Casement, offering a fair account of his life, relatively free of worship while still paying homage [...]


    16. I am ready to bestow on Mario Vargas Llosa the title of “most disappointing author” I ever read. Maybe my mistake was to start reading him with The War of the End of the World, because none of his books that I read since have been able to match that first experience.“The Dream of the Celt” was certainly well researched, but maybe this is where the problem with this book lies. The story follows Roger Casement, the humanist and Irish loyalist who was sentenced to be hanged by the British g [...]


    17. حلم السلتي - ماريو بارغاس يوسا هنا سيرة ذاتية تحولت على يد يوسا لعمل روائي مدهش.السيرة الذاتية للسير روجر كيسمنت (1864-1916).يسلط العمل الضوء على حياة كيسمنت وعلى ثلاثة مراحل هامة :الكونغو والأمازون وايرلنداتحتل رحلته وحياته في الكونغو والأمازون مساحة هائلة.توضح بدايته في الكونغ [...]


    18. "حلم السلتي" لماريو فارغاس يوسا، هي عمل روائي سردي لا يمكن تصنيفه بأنه عمل أدبي من حيث البنية الروائية والمشاهد المنفرة في بعض الأحيان. ماريو يوسا ومما لا شك فيه كاتب بارع يتقن فن الرواية ، سردية، سيرة ذاتية توثيقية كانت ،أم أدبية بحتة. وهذا الأمر استدركته من حيث الأسلوب الذي [...]


    19. ان لم تكن تعرف شيئا عن أفعال الاستعمار السياسي البلجيكي في الكونغو وأفعال الاستعمار الإنكليزي التجاري للأمازون ، وان لم تكن تعرف عن أبطال الثورة الأيرلندية فعليك بكتاب " حلم السلتي" .----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------انها قصة حياة رجل بدأت بحلم وانتهت ببطولة.كا [...]


    20. I don’t recall ever reading anything by Nobel Prize winner Vargas Llosa before, so I can’t compare this historical novel and thinly-disguised biography to his other work, but the subject--the life of Sir Roger Casement--is one which interests me deeply. Adam Hochschild’s 1998 book of the Congo, King Leopold's Ghost: A Story of Greed, Terror and Heroism in Colonial Africa, introduced me to the unforgettable figure of Roger Casement and I see Vargas Llosa was similarly captured. Casement was [...]


    21. عن روجر كيسمنت تتحدث هذه الرواية عن الكونغو والأمازون وأفريقيا وأمريكا الجنوبيةعن إيرالندا والإستقلالعن إنجلترا وألمانيا وبلجيكياعن العبودية عن حلم الإستقلال عن القسوة عن الوحشية عن الخيانة عن الصدمة عن السجن وعن الإعداموعن الجحيـــم بكل مافيهرواية تاريخية بامتياز, تتح [...]


    22. لهواة الرواية التاريخية و أصحاب النفس الطويل هذه توصية ليس من الضروري الأخذ بها.يوسا يتناول حياة السير روجر كسمنت من بكاءه الأول رضيعاً و بكاءه الأخير قبل أن يساق إلى المشنقة. سيرة حياة غريبة إلى أبعد درجة ، متناقضة و صادمة للجميع. الرجل الذي ذهب لاستكشاف أفريقيا و انتهى به ا [...]


    23. A sort of historical fiction docudrama with an irresistible premise — a Roger Casement, a British official who helped to expose colonial atrocities in the Congo and Llosa's native Peru. Such a narrative also attracted a degree of controversy, as Casement began to protest the British control over Ireland, and approached the German Empire to help lead an insurrection during the First World War, and thus condemned as a traitor. Unfortunately, Casement had a predilection for young boys, which the [...]


    24. ماریو بارگاس یوسا و قهرمان همجنس گرایش!!!قهرمان این رمان نه تنها با استعمار انگلستان مبارزه می‌کند، بلکه همجنسگرا هم هست و نه تنها یک مرد هم‌جنسگراست، بلکه به‌راستی یک قهرمان تمام‌عیار است؛ از آن قهرمان‌های فراموش‌نشدنی که در رمان‌های قرن نوزدهم خوانندگان را چنان با خود [...]


    25. The story of Roger Casement, a human rights activist, an advocate of Irish independence, and “a traitor” hanged by the British government in 1916 as much for his homosexuality as his treason, is an intriguing one and fits well the words of José Enrique Rodó, “A man is many men.” Mario Vargas Llosa does a magnificent job recreating Casement’s life and, in particular, dealing with the still disputed question concerning the authenticity and meaning of Casement’s graphic description of [...]


    26. يوساالعظيم جدا من جديدربما هو من الكتاب النادرين القادرين علي اقناعك مع كل قراءة لهم بعظمة فن الرواية وعظمة الحكايات التي تروي لنا أحداث ووقائع حقيقية ولا يكون تناولها صحيحا الا عن طريق الروايةهكذا يتم التعامل الأمثل مع عبثية التاريخ انه الحكاية القابلة للصواب مثل قابليته [...]


    27. من هو روجر كيسمنت ؟ مناضل إيرلندي تم إعدامه في سبيل تحرر بلده من الإستعمار الإنجليزي , حسنا هذا كل شيء ؟حلم السلتي تذكرة سفر تأخذنا لعالم العبودية البغيض المتستر بقيم الغرب المتحضر الذي سيجعل من دول العالم الثالث البائسة جنة حضارية و شعوبها سعيدة و آمنة و لكن بقوة الرجل الأب [...]


    28. As I sat trying to finish the last lines of this book, struggling with the blurriness of tears, Church bells started ringing. It was mystic. The Peruvian author, Nobel Price winner, Mario Vargas Llosa, has done it again; moved every fiber in my body and soul. This book is a beautiful homage to Roger Casement his life and the Republican fight for Irish independence. It is a difficult read, in the sense that the horrors experienced by this brilliant and sensitive man and humanist are disturbing. H [...]


    29. An incredible book about Roger Casement, a visionary who did more than anyone else to alleviate the sorrows and horrors of labor in the and in the Congo. Yet, he later became an Irish nationalist and actually joined Germany in opposing Britain in World War I for which he was hung. And his gay lifestyle was a negative sensation at the time. So any book on this has a hard time in surmounting this history, It is so easy to blame the author for the faults of Roger. Yet, Llosa, in his magical abilit [...]


    30. مقاطع بشعة و مقززة من اللواط كنت بفوتها في النص الأول من الرواية لأنها كانت قليلة إنما في النص التاني زادت جدا بشكل مقرف ومش هكمل الرواية بنت النجسة دي. لا يُنصح بها أبدا للمستقيمين.
