Utopia undone: the fall of Uruguay in the novels of Carlos Martínez Moreno
This study shows that Martinez Moreno is a writer of the "Boom" in the Latin novels of the 1960s who deserves a revival in critical attention, and proposes a new reading of his work that extends beyond political protest to a study of Dantean moral analysis -- especially evident in El color que el infierno me escondiera.
