    Hola,

    Tengo que traduccir: "Qué irremisible necesidad de mitos padecemos los humanos. Lo digo al hilo del embeleso acrítico que sigue produciendo la figura del Che"


    Quiero saber si es el embeleso acítico que está produciendo la figura del Che o si el embeleso acrítico es producido por el che??

    Que es el sujeto que sigue produciendo?

    would it be translated as: I say this in respect to the unquestioned spell which continues to promote the figure of Che Guevara

    or

    I say this in respect to the fact that che continues to produce this unquestioned spell

    Any help would be much appreciated!!! Gracias

    Bella

    I think that 'Che' would be the subject? I might try it like this:
    "I say this in the wake of the unchallengeable spell that the figure of Che continues to cast"

    Hi,
    El embeleso acrítico que sigue produciendo la figura del Che. = El embeleso acrítico que la figura del Che sigue produciendo.

    I would suggest "uncritical fascination" instead of "unquestioned spell," but you are the Anglo.

    Regards,
    ;)

    As always this is very interesting.
    I like 'uncritical fascination' - and this is perhaps the most natural-sounding suggestion. The only thing is that I'd taken it as a requirement that we needed the idea of some kind of 'spell' - and if we did need to use the idea of a 'spell', then I don't think 'uncritical' would work along with it.
