The End of Love: Erosing Consent
The End of Love, by Tamara Tenenbaum, is a book, above all, lucid. Published by Arielpublishing house, it is easy to understand why it is a bestseller and is already going through the fourth edition. The author, strikingly young (barely thirty years) for her maturity in her prose, holds a degree in Philosophy from the University of Buenos Aires, where she is also a teacher. But she is also a renowned journalist specializing in gender issues. In addition, it has edited a book of short stories and a book of poems. And all this seems to be reflected in El fin del amor: it is a scholarly text, full of references and quotations from the academic world, but at the same time accessible to the general public and, above all, very beautiful.
The end of love: a text that includes many others
In a first reading, the reader will feel faced with an essay on feminism. But, as you go through the pages, you will encounter the life story of its author, masterfully intertwined with the main conflicts of our time. Feminism will gradually cease to be the main theme to give space to human relations in general, a theme that allows the author to talk about the virtual world of the 21st century, the constitution of the family today, the relationships of couples that are less and less monogamous and even the obligation that many women feel for feeling beautiful and healthy.
A book that helps deconstruct many of the ideas that Western culture led us to believe are “natural”, forcing us to think and think of ourselves as free beings (if in any way we still are). In short, The End of Love is a book that sinks into the depth of affections to celebrate the death of romantic love at the hands of the eroticism of consent. Recommended from every point of view.

Hipólito Azema nació en Buenos Aires, en los comienzos de la década del 80. No se sabe desde cuándo, porque esas cosas son difíciles de determinar, le gusta contar historias, pero más le gusta que se las cuenten: quizás por eso transitó los inefables pasillos de la Facultad de Filosofía y Letras de la Universidad de Buenos Aires. Una vez escuchó que donde existe una necesidad nace un derecho y se lo creyó.
