Eduardo Galeano's is considered a passionate literary voice. In The Book of Embraces, he employs parable and paradox, anecdote and dream, and fragments of autobiography to construct a passionate, ironic and joyful world view. The world reveals itself in a multiplicity of voices; what emerges is a brief for love, friendship, courage, perseverance and imagination. Galeano also wrote Memory of Fire.
