PERIS BLANES, Jaume. UNA POÉTICA DE LAS RUINAS: TESTIMONIO Y ALEGORÍA DE ANÍBAL QUIJADA. Rev. chil. lit. [online]. 2009, n.74, pp. 99-121. ISSN 0718-2295. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22952009000100005.
The text of Aníbal Quijada Cerco de púas, is a good example of the double filiation of the testimonies of Chilean exile. In one hand these testimonies had a close relationship with the international protest against the military rule and, one the other hand, the cultural community made them appear as a main element in the crise of the concept of literature. The author focuses in the strategies used by the text of Quijada in that turbulent context.
