Are illusions chains or wings longing for freedom?

This book of essays comes from the concern to discover the meaning of illusions and the power they have on us. We could think that an illusion is ephemeral, intangible, fake, ethereal. However, there are also illusions that do not mislead us, instead they show us the world just how it is and without them it would be impossible to understand reality. The four essays gathered in this book try to show that not all illusions are the same and they also do not have the same effects.

If we are predestined, or not, to build our hopes up; if there are some alternatives to illusion and disillusionment; if all illusions can be confessed. The reader will enjoy these enigmas travelling around the Geography.

This book has a twin, a novel published by Alfaguara called Essay on the illusion, in which a dreamer devotes himself to the ravings imposed by his illusions.
