Inspired in Don Segundo Ramirez, a cattle drover Ricardo Güiraldes met personally and whose tomb lies in San Antonio de Areco, very close to the author's own, don Segundo Sombra more than a novel is a lesson on the gaucho lifestyle. Ricardo Güiraldes, a friend of Jorge Luis Borges -they both founded the legendary magazine Proa- managed to develop a simple and modern language, a high quality mixture of literacy and colourful local camp expressions that earned him a major standing among the best representatives of "criollismo". Even though it may be considered as a continuity with Martín Fierro, more than an extiguished gaucho elegy don Segundo Sombra proposes new ethical examples to a youth that Güiraldes considered disoriented and restless. Basically structured as lessons to be absorbed departing from inexperience, lessons on labour, amusement, morals, camp chores (horse taming, cattle rodeo, raw hide handy work, animal healing, etc.), they become an example of "lo argentino" supported by a very specific and precise lexikon. Our edition includes more than 300 lexicographic notes, conveniently placed at the bottom of the pages and intended to help the modern reader grasp the exact meaning of the text without obtrusive lengthy interruptions. The notes were made after a careful research work that included the critical Martin Fierro editions by Eleuterio F. Tiscornia, Ed. Losada, Buenos Aires, 1941; by Carlos Alberto Leumann, Ed. Angel de Estrada, Buenos Aires, 1945; and by Santiago M. Lugones, Ed. Centurión, Buenos Aires, 1948; their own notes compared between them and with the critical edition by Elida Lois y Angel Nuñez, Ed. ALLCA XX (Association Archives de la Littérature Latinoaméricaine, des Caraïbes et Africaine du XX Siècle), Paris 2001; with Leopoldo Lugones en El payador, Ed. Centurión, Bs. As. 1948 (and Stockcero 2004); Francisco Castro in Vocabulario y frases del Martín Fierro, Ed. Kraft, Bs. As. 1950, and Domingo Bravo en El Quichua en el Martín Fierro y Don Segundo Sombra, Ed.

About the Author:

Ricardo Güiraldes nació en una acaudalada familia en la Argentina que se fue a Francia cuando él cumplió un año. Pasó los primeros cuatros años de su vida en Europa y aprendió a hablar francés y alemán. Más tarde vivió en Argentina, en una casa en la ciudad y en la estancia La Porteña, en San Antonio de Areco. Su infancia en el campo lo acercó el ambiente gauchesco. Estudió arquitectura y derecho pero no terminó su formación universitaria. Tuvo entonces una vida de dandy en Europa hasta que se casó con Adelina del Carril en 1913. Fue amigo de Jorge Luis Borges con quien fundó las revistas Martín Fierro y Proa.
