Springtime in a Broken Mirror

Mario Benedetti


Spring in a Broken Corner of the World is a direct, painful account of a divided society, one fractured by repression and authoritarianism, and tries to build a bridge between two regions – Uruguay under the dictatorship and Uruguay in exile – which constitute a single, scarred country. 

The novel focuses on the profound effects these political events can have on human relationships and individuals. Like the rest of his work, in this book, Mario Benedetti combines tenderness, rage, passion, love and history to convey a message of hope: the spring, although mutilated, will finally come to relieve a winter that had seemed unending.
