Abstract

FUENTES RETAMAL, Pablo  and  BURICH OYARZUN, Yasna. THE RELEVANCE OF THE NARRATIVE DETAIL IN THE DAYS OF THE RAINBOW BY ANTONIO SKÁRMETA. Acta lit. [online]. 2019, n.58, pp.129-150. ISSN 0717-6848.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-68482019000100129.

This article suggests an interpretation of The Days of the Rainbow (2011) by Antonio Skármeta, from the catalysis or narration details. These minor components are full of significance and sense, because they establish anchor points that articulate the text at a political, symbolic, and ideological level. Thus, in very negligible aspects such as the pieces of clothing worn by the characters, the colours that depict the story, the objects that decorate the narrative space, among others, not only can we find power but also a historical context hidden in the narrated events.

Keywords : Antonio Skármeta; Chilean literatura; catalysis; details; Pinochet's dictatorship.
