Este trabajo pretende abordar la noción de pobreza desde el punto de vista de la literatura, la cual contiene diversas concepciones y posibilidades que en definitiva permiten comprender qué significa ser pobre y quiénes lo son o lo pueden llegar a ser. Particularmente se expone el caso de una región conocida como el Chaco Argentino", en donde las dinámicas entre lo rural y lo urbano coexisten con situaciones de pobreza.******This paper aims to exam the concept of poverty from the literature point of view, which contains various connotations and possibilities that ultimately allow us to understand what it means to be poor and who are or may become poor.
