Publisher's Summary

Obra cumbre de la literatura argentina y latinoamericana, el "Martín Fierro" constituye una pieza fundamental para comprender el contexto histórico-social de la vida rural de antaño.

Martín Fierro es un extenso poema narrativo escrito por José Hernández que publicado por primera vez en 1872 describe el carácter independiente y sacrificado del hombre de campo. A su modo, el texto es una protesta en contra de las tendencias europeas y modernas que el presidente argentino Domingo Faustino Sarmiento comenzaba a imponer.

Las peripecias del gaucho Fierro son narradas con precisión y virtuosismo en esta obra fundamental.

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

Not the actual poem

This is a dramatized account of what happens in the poem, embellished by lots of music and sound effects, barking dogs, crickets, chickens, horses galloping and so on. I was disappointed because I expected an audio version of the actual poetry. The number of narrators listed should have alerted me. However, they did a good job in a style which is a bit too dramatically exaggerated, for my taste. Jose Hernandez's beautiful poem is written in the language of a gaucho of the 19th Century, and I hope to find 'the real thing' to listen to, some day.
