Description - Visions by Louis Nowra
Set in Paraguay during the 1860s War of the Triple Alliance. The megalomaniac President Lopez has married Madame Lynch, a Parisian courtesan. His ignorance and her egotism together bring ruin on the country and themselves. Against this violent background of bungled diplomacy, death and superstition, is set an allegory of conflicting values, where visions of the civilised arts of peace sacrifice a nation to its own barbarity.
