Representaciones de la violencia en la literatura centroamericana

  • Nadine Haas


Registered author(s):

    Este artículo analiza la literatura guatemalteca y salvadoreña actual ante la situación de vio-lencia y delincuencia en la posguerra. Desde una perspectiva transdisciplinaria y desde las ciencias culturales, enfoca representaciones de la violencia en la literatura. Con la ayuda de dos ejemplos – De fronteras (2007) de Claudia Hernández y Días amarillos (2009) de Javier Pa- yeras – se analizan las estrategias narrativas empleadas al narrar realidades violentas. Los re- sultados de este análisis permiten extraer conclusiones acerca de la postura que adoptan am- bas sociedades ante la violencia urbana y se refieren, entre otros, a la ubicuidad de la violen- cia y el carácter desesperado de la situación actual, como también a la responsabilidad de los medios de comunicación, el rechazo de la esfera estatal y el retiro hacia la vida privada.
