Description

This book examines the ways in which contemporary novelists from Venezuela and Colombia have treated one of the most prominent nineteenth-century historical figures of South America, Simon Bolivar, the "Liberator" - also known as the founding father of their nations. The novels examined at length are "Sinfonia desde el Nuevo Mundo" (1990) by German Espinosa, Manuel Piar, "caudillo de dos colores" (1987) by Francisco Herrera Luque, "El general en su laberinto" (1989) by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, "La ceniza del Libertador" (1989) by Fernando Cruz Konfly, and "El insondable" (1997) by Alvaro Pineda Botero. This book focuses primarily on the different kinds of fictional representation of this Latin American icon and the roles these modes of portrayal play in the ideologies at the end of the twentieth century. This book is available in Spanish.
