Originally serialized while author Jos M rmol lived in exile in Montevideo, Amalia: A Romance of the Argentine (1851) became a symbol of Argentine national identity following the defeat of brutal dictator Juan Manuel de Rosas in 1852. M rmol, a leading critic of the Rosist regime, used autobiographical details to compose this masterful story of romance and political resistance, elevating the personal to the level of the national without losing sight of the everyday struggle of dissidents.

Amalia follows two lovers brought together by political repression during the violent regime of caudillo Jaun Manuel de Rosas. Eduardo, a dissident forced into hiding, finds safety at the home of Amalia, a beautiful young woman. Protected by Amalia and her cousin Daniel, Eduardo grows weary of living in constant fear of the Rosist death squads stalking the streets of Buenos Aires, and longs for a day when liberty and justice will set him free. Despite their blossoming romance, Eduardo and Amalia know they face mortal danger, and that every decision they make will come with the risk of discovery. Yet, the perservere.

Amalia remains a timeless work of Latin American fiction from a leading figure of the Romantic era. This professionally designed edition of Jos M rmol's Amalia: A Romance of the Argentine is a classic of Argentine literature reimagined for modern readers.
