by Rafael Diez de la Cortina
This is a book written in 1899. It is about letter writing and etiquette, and is a fascinating insight into the life of the time. There is a Spanish version and an English version. It is interesting to compare them and see how the writer used the reserved and formal style of writing then in fashion in both languages.
Spanish Literature by Henry Butler Clarke, is another very old book that has maintained its relevance. Written in 1893, the chapter about Cervantes is reproduced here.

The Guide to Rosario
I spent many happy years in Argentina, mainly in the city of Rosario. I often visit Argentine web sites. This one in particular brings back happy memories.
José Hernández (1834-1886) was one of Argentina's greatest writers. His epic poem, "Martin Fierro" is written in an old gaucho dialect of Spanish, but is still accessible, and gives a powerful representation of the hard life of the Argentine frontier of the 19th Century.
Julio Cortázar (1914-1984) was born in Belgium of Argentine parents, and moved to Argentina when he was four years old. He became one of the most influential writers of his time. Much of his work is surreal, and incorporates words from many languages, including Cortázar's own invented words. His 1963 novel "Rayuela" (which translates as "Hopscotch") leads the reader through all sorts of erratic links between its parts, and many see this as being like the hyperlinks we now use on web pages. In 1951, Cortázar left Argentina to live in Europe.
El Cyber-Club de los Rosarinos es para "los nacidos en Rosario, y los que amen a esta ciudad y la sientan como propia."
