The Motorcycle Diaries happens to be the letters as well as diaries of Ernesto Che Guevara. This has undergone translation by Ann Wright who has lived in Argentina for more than a few years. Her conversion, though well-versed because of her proficiency and the information she gathered from being a Doctorate of Cuban history, the diaries are not able to be used as a main resource of past information.
The fundamental tale is of Guevara journeying in the company of his buddy Alberto Granado starting from Buenos Aires and going along the Argentina’s Atlantic coast, across Pampa, throughout the Andes and into Chile, northwards to Peru, Columbia to enter Caracas. According to legend, it’s on this journey that Guevara finds out his personality and his liaison with Latin America – his individual archive in Havana described it as; ‘the astonishing change that occurs inside him with his discovery of Latin America, is able to get right to its very spirit to develop a feeling of individuality that is able to make him a pioneer of the new American history.‘
Guevara had traveled 4000 miles from Argentina on his motorcycle. For this occasion he would embark upon the trip on top of La Poderosa – ‘the powerful one’. Though a Norton single engine of 500cc may not appear reasonably powerful these days, but he was able to wrote a history on it.
It isn’t that this bike has much significance in the story. This isn’t a motorcycling volume, in spite of the title. There’re some interesting incidents, such as this one in which the duo had to face deep sandy dunes: The bike, because of its badly circulated load, continued to leap uncontrollably and spin over. Alberto carried out an obstinate fight with the sand that he insists to have won. The fact is that having to rest at ease on top of their backsides on the sand on six occasions ahead of finally being able to get out against the flat tyre.
However, the very little information regarding the bike is able to make this an annoying read for anybody on the look out for detail. Those not being the writing / editing of a motorcyclist in spite of being able to identify with that the boys having a bad time you’re not able to make out the reason for it. It seems that they were constantly required ‘fixing the framework with wire‘. After that; ‘one among the steering columns did break and the gearbox happened to be smashed‘. Punctures took place every day – like accidents did – the kick start happened to break, the lights did not work, it turned out that a deafening sound in the dark was the frame breaking… all of this in addition to the boys’ own sleeping beneath the stars even as being stoned and going through malaria-sort experiences.
Thus, it was not a surprise to find out that less than two months of Norton riding, finally it was damaged and deserted in Chile. After the trip was completed more or less, all additional means of transportation died. And currently I identify with the reason for not finishing this book the first time around. The narrative refuses to be accountable in any way the things taking place about them; ‘not giving any caution the bike unexpectedly swerved sideways to throw us off‘ is rather usual. Yes; motorbikes are acknowledged to have their own minds.
However, the boozing as well as partying and indulgent post-adolescent pretentiousness make for a few half respectable prose from time to time:- ‘The stars speckled the nighttime sky by means of illumination in that small mountain settlement and the stillness and the chill dematerialized the dark. It was like all concrete substances had been spirited off in the airy space about us, disallowing our distinctiveness and immersing us, firm, in the vast blackness.‘
Yes, I am able to go for that.
