The reason Ibsen is IBSEN

Ibsen Martínez is one of Venezuela’s few towering opinion makers, probably the only one that gets around on a first-name basis, like Madonna, Fidel, or Obama.

His obituary of Carlos Andrés Pérez, courtesy of Prodavinci, rich with the milieu of a time gone by, evocative of the life force that was his subject, is a reminder of why.

Impelable. And, regrettably, in Spanish only.
