CARRASCO M, Iván. Identity ambivalence in canonical chilean literature . Estud. filol. [online]. 2008, n.43, pp. 55-62. ISSN 0071-1713.

Considering that literature has been valued as a particular and influential space of identity construction by many writers, critics and researchers, this paper shows three cases of plural identity ambivalence in the same character by authors and canonical texts: Alberto Blest Gana, Pedro Prado and Vicente Huidobro. The characters are Martin Rivas who is studied in relation to a socio-political metaphor, Alsino, interpreted as a complex identity both symbolic and contradictory, and Altazor, representative of an artistic, as well as a priestly and paganizing leader.

Palabras clave : identity; ambivalence; leader; paganizing.
