About this product
- DescriptionThis book analyzes the five vels of La guerra silenciosa by Manuel Scorza (1928-83) and examines the cycle's underlying unity and development. In his chronicle Scorza describes an Andean peasant uprising which he witnessed in the 1960's. Although many of the names, places, dates, and events are real, the author velizes them by adding humor, myth, and fantasy to his testimonial. Thematically his vels show affinities with works belonging to the Latin American literary tradition of social protest kwn as indigenismo. However, Scorza revates and modernizes the genre by incorporating into his narrative the complex stylistic devices of such contemporary writers as Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Mario Vargas Llosa, and Carlos Fuentes.
