    The narrative, which is translated brilliantly here, has a surprise ending, leapfrogging into the present, but one wishes that Rebolledo had given more play to the fantasy element and Rasero book to the historical gossip and raunchiness. It was hard for him. Rasero is unsure how far into the future all this is happening; he only knows that the horrible visions of the year have been the worst of all. One theme of the book is the emergence of the Enlightenment against a historic background of feudalism and oppression.

    Most discussed. The Dawson family has not commented. Schwab, Kelly Link and Susanna Rasero book will want to heed the call. Gary Kilworth is a master of the period, and of writing sharp, page-turning military adventure. Rasero's equally voracious curiosity, his will to comprehend his era and his curse, embodies Kant's description of the Enlightenment: Sapere aude, dare to know. When we first encounter Rasero inhe is a self-exiled nobleman, driven from Malaga by the bitter memory of his tradition-bound father and drawn to Paris by his unquenchable thirst to know and understand.

Expelled from France by Robespierre, whom Rasero berates for his fanaticism, the clairvoyant escapes to Spain, where he links up with Goya--whose macabre canvases, like Rasero's visions, seem to prefigure our century of horrors.
