Shakespeare, a treasure trove of masterpieces

Tatsuji Iwabuchi, Brecht: Person and Thought 64 - We can change Shakespeare. If we can change Shakespeare

当時の演劇界の空気感を知れるこの本はとてもおすすめです。私も1ページ1ページ興味津々で読みました。ぜひ手に取ってみてはいかがでしょうか。

Shakespeare, a treasure trove of masterpieces

Bakhtin, "The Works of François Rabelais and the Popular Culture of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance" - A famous book that Yukio Ninagawa has made his desk book!

蜷川さんの人生やその言葉を通して私も今たくさんのことを学ばせて頂いています。その蜷川さんが「座右の書」と呼ぶバフチンの『フランソワ・ラブレーの作品と中世・ルネッサンスの民衆文化』。これがどんな本なのかやはり気になります!そして実際に読みながら感じたことをある意味率直に書いてみたのが今回の記事です。率直過ぎたかもしれませんがどうかご容赦ください。

Don Quixote, the beloved itinerant knight.

Che Guevara, "Marx-Engels Sketch" - What does Guevara think of Marxism? That Guevara wrote a biography of Marx!

This work is very much about where Che Guevara stands on Marxism.

First, when we think of Marxism, we think of the Soviet Union, but from Guevara's perspective, Soviet-style Marxism seemed to be distorted from the original Marx. The Soviet Union had become a rigid bureaucracy, and its reality was different from Guevara's ideal of Marxism.

In this article I will tell you what Guevara thought of Marxism and what I think of it!

Don Quixote, the beloved itinerant knight.

Chihiro Ito, "Cuba: The Latin Soul that Brought a Superpower to its Knees" - A recommended reference for learning about Cuba's history!

We were amazed at what we read in this book. We usually receive very little information about the country of Cuba. At best, we have an image of Cuba as a strong baseball team. For those of us who only have an image of the Cuban crisis and the dictator Castro, what this book tells us is truly astonishing. The world here is the complete opposite of the image we have of Cuba.

I am sure that this book will change the way you feel about America.

I think one of the great things about this book is that it gives us an idea of what the U.S. was like for the Cubans, not just information from the U.S. side.

Don Quixote, the beloved itinerant knight.

Toru Miyoshi, "Che Guevara Biography" - Biography recommended to learn about the life and thought of Che Guevara, the leading revolutionary of the Cuban Revolution.

It was Guevara who inspired me to read Don Quixote. It was because of Guevara that I decided to read "Don Quixote" for the first time.

Now "Don Quixote" is like my life's work. I will continue to read this work for the rest of my life.

For me, Che Guevara was the great benefactor who connected me to Don Quixote.

This work, "The Biography of Che Guevara," is a wonderful biography that allows us to learn about the man to whom we owe so much.

Learn about the life and thought background of Marx Engels

(6) Engels, "Wuppertal Dayori" - 18-year-old journalist Engels denounces the poor conditions at the factory.

Wuppertal Dayori" was published when Engels was 18 years old.

As we will discuss later, this style of "Wuppertal Dayori" was carried over into the later "The State of the Working Class in England," which in turn was directly connected to Marx's "Capitalism.

Although Engels was expelled from Gymnasium and was unable to go to university, there is something different about the genius who changed history. Although he is often overshadowed by Marx, glimpses of his genius have already appeared here.

The Current Situation in Cuba as Told by the Guide - The Economic Crisis and the Adverse Effects of the Communist Regime Cuba Part 15 (15)

During this local tour, which included a visit to a farmer's hut, I was exposed to a different Cuba.

The heavy darkness of reality that occasionally glimpses through the Cuban people's joviality...

Listening to our guide, I was struck by the problems Cuba was facing.

I finished my last itinerary in Cuba while admiring the dark green scenery of Cuba from the car window.

Santa Clara city center and the monument to the attack on the armored train - Santa Clara, the place associated with Che Guevara (Santa Clara 2) Cuba Part 8

After paying my respects at the Che Guevara mausoleum, my next stop was the center of Santa Clara.

サンタクララ市街地に到着すると、年季が入ったカラフルな建物にキューバらしさを感じます。

街の中をぶらぶらしながら近くにある装甲列車襲撃記念碑に歩いて向かいます。キューバ革命においてここサンタクララでの勝利が革命軍の勝利を決定的なものにしました。そのきっかけとなった戦闘がまさにここで行われたということで私はここにやって来たのでした。
