El juguete rabioso

Roberto Arlt

Terramar Ediciones

Language: Spanish

El Juguete Rabioso (Mad Toy), an almost autobiographical novel by Argentine writer Roberto Arlt, reflects the chaos of the beginning of the 20th century in Buenos Aires . The book is narrated in first person and is cleanly constructed. Silvio Astier, an adolescent expelled from school, lives his poverty as an humiliation while trying in vain to escape from his life, sinking deeper and deeper into a dark pessimism as he fails in all his attempts.

In an environment saturated with sinister and vile characters, as well as absurd and desperate situations, the young man is the object of contempt and intolerance around him, without managing to emerge from an oppressive society. First published in 1926, El juguete rabioso (Mad Toy) was the first novel of Roberto Arlt and is one of the key works to understand his work.
