Another article

Also from TheGuardian, here's another article by the reknowned author, Ariel Dorfman, whose Death And The maiden everybody knows, and whose "How To Read Donald Duck" more people ought to have read. Myself, i read it several years ago after somehow finding it at Udine's library.

As a person interested in both latinamerican cold war politics and Carl Barks' masterpieces, i hope to someday write a fulfilling comentary on that last book, whose examples and conclusions i didn't find fully satisfying. Let's just say that after over thirty years, it definitely shows its age. But it's still a worthwile read, even just with skeptical criticism in mind.
