The bumbling protagonist travels to america

An american tail: the mystery of the night monster


The Vespucci fortune had been in slow decline for decades. His father wanted Amerigo to devote himself exclusively to the clan’s business.[14] He succeeded in getting him to abandon his studies at the University of Pisa and, thanks to Guidantonio’s efforts, to be employed in Florence as a commercial agent under Lorenzo di Pierfrancesco de Medici and his brother Giovanni.[15] While in Florence, his main occupation was as a commission agent in the sale and purchase of precious stones on behalf of third parties.[16] Amerigo’s father died in April 1482,[17] at which time Florence began to be a city where the Vespucci’s father died in April 1482,[17] a time when the Vespucci’s father, Amerigo’s father, died in April 1482,[18] and Amerigo’s father died in April 1482.

Amerigo’s father died in April 1482,[17] a time when Florence was beginning to be convulsed by the moral denunciation of the friar Girolamo Savonarola. His two brothers, Girolamo and Bernardo, were of a vagabond and bohemian character, and had found other directions far removed from the city.[13] The two brothers, Girolamo and Bernardo, were of a wandering and bohemian character, and had found other directions far removed from the city.[13

Tell me how is your daughter and mother, and a certain woman named Francesca. To all a thousand remembrances. I would like to know if Lisandra is well. Not because I love her, but to know if she is alive or dead. She has a poor idea of me, and I have a worse idea of her. Many regards to all at Lorenzo’s house, and especially to master Giacomo, the shoemaker.[19] I wish you all the best.

An American Tale

Motorcycle travel is epic and it is lyrical. This is what interests me. I am not a motorcyclist, but a writer. The motorcycle is just a tool of art. Like a computer or a camera. Without it, there is no story. On it I am a protagonist but also an observer. From the outside I observe the adventurer, the solitary motorcyclist who gets lost behind the horizon. He could move in a more comfortable way, but he chooses to suffer because swallowing dust, wind and sand he becomes a nomad, an explorer, part of the landscape and of the story he tells.

Thus I begin a new adventure to Tierra del Fuego. I will cross the continent from north to south. I feel vertigo. But it is not the immense American geography that frightens me, but its unfathomable history. There are so many heroic deeds, so many forgotten explorers that I am incapable of covering them all. I would need ten lifetimes to do so. Even so, I am happy and excited even if I cannot imagine what surprises the voyage will bring me.

Amerigo Vespucci when he discovered America

It all began when he was invited by the Circle of Journalists of Santiago de Chile , he visited the Andean country in the spring of 1955, a trip in which he also visited Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina . Upon his return, he published a series of chronicles in Destino magazine that would become the book Un novelista descubre América (Chile en el ojo ajeno) , published by Editora Nacional in 1956.

His trip to Chile would inspire his novel Diario de un emigrante (Destino, 1958), in which he would recover Lorenzo, the protagonist of Diario de un cazador (Destino, 1955), winner of the Premio Nacional de Literatura ‘Miguel de Cervantes’ de Narraciones.

After spending six months as a visiting professor at the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures of the University of Maryland in 1964, the author compiled 33 chronicles of that experience in the book USA y yo, published by Destino in 1966.

Of the landscapes, inhabitants and customs of those states Delibes offers his comments and impressions, fruit “almost always of astonishment”, as he himself confessed. “To me, simply, as to many other Europeans, the contact with the United States astonished me and the result of my astonishment are these lines”, he specifies in the prologue of the work.

Summary of Amerigo Vespucci’s travels

The most controversial moment of the film is that Judge elaborates a dangerous and classist syllogism, in which the rich would have a better IQ than the lower classes, the poor and uneducated. With the tendency of the upper classes to stop having children, it was estimated, in an exaggeration difficult to take seriously, that those belonging to lower classes have more children without stopping to think about the disadvantages. As a statistical game, it thus offers the murky origin of idiocracy.

Joe, the character played by Luke Wilson, is a guinea pig cryonized for a military experiment and by mistake ends up in a future America, five centuries later. When he wakes up, he realizes that the world he lives in is inhabited by idiots, governed by idiots, and condemned to organized idleness. It is a revision of ‘The Time Machine’ by H.G. Wells with rednecks instead of morlocks, although it is more reminiscent of a trash version of ‘Futurama’ (1999-2013).
