1898 Vol. 5 (Spanish)


1898 Vol. 5: Muere la Esperanza. This is the middle episode, the hinge which unfolds spy's tragic story. Alfonso Ruiz Bassen accomodates easily to the discreet pleasures of Ponce's bourgeois life, although his relationship with Luis Muñoz Rivera's family and Amalia Marín cannot be any more close. The American Navy surrounds the island. La Isla se encuentra bloqueada por la Armada yanki. Food is scarce. Spain's authority over the island daily deteriorates. The cumulative resentment caused by centuries of oppression, along with the farmers' recent displacement from their small farms in the mountains apprehended by a new emerging class of coffee planters erupts in serious episodes of violence. Another spy, from the yankee military intelligence, lands in Ponce and starts collecting information about the area's geography as well as the people's practices. The rumors preceding an invasion through Fajardo are stronger by the second. The Spanish Army distrusts the Spanish spy's motivations and the impunity of his actions leading to his imprisonment in the Castillo San Felipe del Morro. A few days later, the yankees start invading through the Guánica Bay. Tax included. Shipping will be made in approximately 5 to 7 business days.

The first version of “Tai: el pequeño tayno” was distributed free in public schools in New York in the 70’s. We can imagine what importance this can have nowadays with the current migratory wave. There’s already more Puerto Ricans living outside of Puerto Rico than what we have in the island.
