    Şarkılarını halk için söylemiş, hayatı boyunca diğer insanlara yardımcı olmaya çalışmış, eline asla silah almamış ve bir karıncayı bile incitmemiş bir müzisyen. Ve sadece fikirleri yüzünden tutuklandığında işkenceyle öldürüp bir de ellerini kırmışlar!!!! Canavar insanoğlu!!

    The torture and murder of singer Victor Jara in the wake of the September 1973 military coup that overthrew the elected government of Salvador Allende encapsulates the brutal, fascistic, and murderous nature of that event in history. Joan Jara tells her husband's life story in An Unfinished Song: The Life of Victor Jara . Knowing the obscene way that he and hundreds of others perished, it is hard to read the last quarter of the book.Victor Jara was no flash-in-the-pan celebrity. His songwriting [...]

    a biography of chilean folksinger and political activist victor jara, imprisoned and murdered in the days after the pinochet coup. written by victor's wife joan. this tells his/their story and the story of the election, overthrow, and death of chilean president salvador allende. highly recommended.i used to have a copy of a two-cassette album by the same title ("an unfinished song") as the book. it was by far my favorite collection of victor jara's music, but it was released by now-vanished redw [...]

    An exceptionally moving and important account of the life of Victor Jara, the great Chilean singer, guitarist, director and activist. Contains lots of insight in relation to the Popular Unity government of Salvador Allende (1970-73), the activism that sustained it, and the fascist military coup the brought it down. Victor Jara is a hero of the oppressed people worldwide, and his legacy should never be forgotten.

    One of the most touching stories I've read of a real life man, told in the most touching way by his wife. Its the sad story of a man who thought he could sing for the men of the soil and stand for their political cause in a world of new music in the Chile that was being heavily intruded by the USA to push through a bloody military coup. Victor never compromised his conscience and was brutally murdered.

    As I've listened to his music and read extensively about him over the past three years, Victor Jara has quickly become my hero. This book, which Joan so masterfully and eloquently wrote a short ten years after his passing, really confirms what I have felt about him and paints an intimate, honest portrait of their lives, activism, and marriage. It is a beautiful book that makes the legendary Jara Turner family feel tangible. As I read, I felt like I was in their home with them, experiencing the e [...]

    A great book.ough one written under tragic circumstances, I first become aware of Victor Jara only recently due to Christy Moore's cover of Arlo Guthrie's song about the short but eventful life of this revolutionary poet/musician.It's a story of political struggle optimism around the creation of a hopeful socialist utopia.e usual anti communist CIA meddling and the installation of a military junta led by Pinochet who spearhead the Wests free market experiments but ultimately leave more human rig [...]

    This book is Part Biography, part autobiography. Written by Joan Jara, the British widow of the subject, it is the story of Victor Jara, Chilean teacher, theater director, poet, singer/songwriter, and political activist. Victor Jara was involved in the New Song Music development in Chile during the time Salvador Allende was becoming President, Allende's brief presidency, and during the period following Allende's murder. He was also a victim of the 'Cleansing" of Chile by Augosto Pinochet. It was [...]

    Joan is telling her and Victors story so full of love for each other and for the chillean people and their democratic revolution. From the quest of Victor and others finding and reviving their own cultural herritage of songs, dances, instruments and stories to the fight for a more just society. A most inspiering account of courrage, modesty and love. With an incredible develloped consiousness that even beaten to blood knowing that this is the last poem he will ever write he sees through the horr [...]

    This is the best book I read of late.Victor Jara- always heard about him, now I must Google more of and about him. I learned quite a bit from this memoir by his lovely wife, a British dance teacher, choreographer, and expat. It took me a long time to get used to her perceptive writing about labor and strikes in late 1960s -early 1970s using the term "lorries" for "trucks." Get past surface impressions: this is a story of great souls, particularly Jara, and the tumult of the violent coup against [...]

    Really nice book to understand the lyrics of Jara and the hisotry of Chile! Really good and easy reading

    This book changed my view of life and still haunts me from time to time. How much can one give up for a cause, a passion and a belief?

    Aborda un aspecto poco conocido del cantautor chileno, de su vida de pobreza, genialidad y resiliencia

    I have only read excerpts of this out of print book and these have only made me want to read it all so much more.
