Abstract

GUERRERO JIMENEZ, Bernardo. La fiesta de La Tirana en la literatura obrera. Universum [online]. 2012, vol.27, n.1, pp. 71-84. ISSN 0718-2376.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-23762012000100005.

This article discusses the relationships between the so-called "working class" literature and the carnival of La Tirana in the North of Chile. It is studied how in the novelsLos Pampinos by Luis González Zenteno and La Luz viene del mar by Nicomedes Guzmán, represent this religious and popular activity. Both authors, besides the different literary styles and generational affiliation, are inscribed in a modern and "enlightened" set of conceptions that understand this feast as something from the past, pagan and superstitious and that will be overcome by the force of History.

Keywords : Working class literature; La Tirana; popular religion.
