Chapter Summary

The death of Che Guevara had tragic quality. Che was not just an individual, but a representative figure, who lived out a tragic action. A tragic action is one in which a hero encounters a catastrophe as a result of a flaw in his character. What was Che's flaw? To ask this question is to ask about a role and not about an assemblage of personal traits. Che was an asthmatic who developed a will strong enough to take him onto the athletic field and through medical school. For what Che uses to close the gap between what the Marxist-Leninist must hold on an objective analysis to be a situation in which the socialist revolution cannot yet be made and the revolutionary aspirations of the selfsame Marxist-Leninist who confronts himself with this, as it must seem, defeatist analysis, is an appeal to pure will.

Keywords:Che Guevara; Marxist-Leninist; socialist revolution; will
