This is a radical reexamination of the regional novel, which plays a central part in the development of Latin American fiction in the first half of the twentieth century. Professor Alonso presents his argument through challenging readings of three works that are universally acknowledged as archetypes of the autochthonous modality: Rivera's La voragine, Gallegos' Dona Barbara, and Guiraldes' Don Segundo Sombra. He proposes a new view of the autochthonous as a discourse rather than a referent, this discourse being organized by the three intertwined categories of language, geography, and work.

Book Description:

This study provides a radical re-examination of the regional novel, which played a central part in the development of Latin American fiction in the first half of the twentieth century. Professor Alonso presents his argument through challenging readings of three works: Rivera's La Voragine; Gallegos's Dona Barbara and Guiraldes's Don Segundo.

Review:

"Alonso reexamines a category of Latin American fiction all but explained away in the past. He justifies...this category with arguments that by far surpass, both in intelligence and ingenuity, anything written on the subject before him...This is a very original, highly stimulating book." Sylvia Molloy, Yale University

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2004. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Carlos Alonso's study provides a radical re-examination of the novela de la tierra or regional novel, which plays a central part in the development of Latin American fiction in the first half of the twentieth century. He identifies the regional novel as a specific literary manifestation of the persistent meditation on cultural authochthony that has characterized Latin American cultural production from its beginnings, and which in his view springs from Latin America's problematic relationship with Modernity. He proposes a view of the autochthonous as a discourse rather than a referent. Professor Alonso presents his argument through challenging readings of three works that are universally acknowledged as archetypes of the autochthonous modality: Rivera's La voragine, Gallegos's Dona Barbara and Guiraldes's Don Segundo Sombra.
