George, Ana Cecilia (2017-05). La Violencia en La Narrativa de Ficcion Centroamericana del Siglo XX: Tatiana Lobo, Rosa Maria Britton, Horacio Castellanos Moya y Rodrigo Rey Rosa. Doctoral Dissertation.
This dissertation analyzes the work of four Central American novelists, who together offer a panorama of the history of Central America from the colonial period, through independence to the postwar. The authors that are part of this study are: Tatiana Lobo, Rosa Maria Britton, Horacio Castellanos Moya and Rodrigo Rey Rosa. The works analyzed share a historical-geographical framework, which creates links between them. They also share a discourse of violence that has been part of Latin America since the colony to the present day. The theories of Ariel Dorfman, Rene Girard, Carlo Galli and Terry Eagleton are used in order to demonstrate how violence has been represented over time.
