Original Title: Los pozos de nieve
Intent on capturing whatever past he can derive from the objects around him (not unlike Walter Benjamin in the city of Paris), the narrator delves into the lives of a number of people who were embroiled in some of the murkiest events of the twentieth century, including the Spanish Civil War and the Second World War. Trapped between the voices of the masses and the conscience of the individual, the narrator, disillusioned with words, is paradoxically left with only his own voice.
