Themes of the Motorcycle Diaries
  • The youthful vitality of Guevara, the symbol
  • and the person
  • Guevaras charisma and his mythic status
  • comes from his youthfulness, together with
  • his daring and his purity.
  • This is not a story of incredible heroism.
  • youthful adventures veined with cheerfulness,
  • humor and self-directed irony

14
Themes of the Motorcycle Diaries
  • The spirit of the dreamer experiencing an
  • awakening the near Quixotic scope of his
  • consciousness
  • The enormity of our endeavor escaped us
  • in those moments, all we could see was
  • the dust on the road ahead and ourselves
  • on the bike, devouring kilometers in the
  • flight northward.

15
Themes of the Motorcycle Diaries
  • The awakening of conscience the proletariat and
    humanitarian concern
  • It is there, in the final moments, for people
    whose farthest horizon has always been tomorrow,
    that one comprehends the profound tragedy
    circumscribing the life of the proletariat the
    world over. In those dying eyes there is a
    submissive appeal for forgiveness and also,
    often, a desperate plea for consolation which is
    lost to the void, just as their body will soon be
    lost in the magnitude of the mystery surrounding
    us.

16
Our vocation, our true vocation, was to move for
eternity along the roads and seas of the world.
--Che Guevara
