Synopsis: First published in 1929, The Seven Madmen perfectly captures the conflict of Argentine society at a crucial moment in its history.
Arlt's exploration of the still mysterious city of Buenos Aires, its street slang, crowded tenements, crazy juxtapositions, and anguish are at the core of this novel. In this seething, hostile city, Erdosain wanders the streets, trying to decipher the teeming life going on behind dark doors. He searches, literally, for his soul which is causing him so much pain, wondering what it might look like.
About the Author: Roberto Arlt was born in Buenos Aires in 1900. He had a deeply unhappy childhood and was brought up in the city's crowded tenement houses - the same tenements which feature in The Seven Madmen. As a journalist, Arlt described the rich and vivid life of Buenos Aires. As an inventor, he patented a method to prevent ladders in women's stockings. Roberto Arlt died suddenly of a heart attack in Buenos Aires in 1942. He was the author of the novels The Enraged Toy, The Flamethrowers, Love the Enchanter and several plays.
