Item description for Novelas Bogotanas / Bogotanian Novels by German Espinosa...

It wasnt until forty or fifty years ago that arguments stating Colombias literature should take place in rural backdrops (due to the countrys predominantly agricultural landscape) were first questioned. The twentieth century received the works of Lorenzo Marroqun and J. A. Osorio Lizarazo, but it was not until the eighties that a new generation of novelists was able to build a literary tradition. In this book, we include three novels from Germn Espinosa (from Bogot), which portrays Colombias social and political life.

Description in Spanish: Apenas hace cuarenta o cincuenta aos los narradores solan argumentar que Colombia era un pas eminentemente agrcola y que, por lo tanto, las novelas aqu producidas deban encontrar su escenario apropiado en el agro. Tal costumbre fue cuestionada, claro, por ese gran relator colonial que fue Rodrguez Freile. Y, en el siglo XIX, por unas cuantas novelas y, sobre todo, por el insigne cronista de las Reminiscencias de Santaf y Bogot. El siglo XX abri con una radiografa sarcstica de la capital, debida a Lorenzo Marroqun. Y conoci las novelas de inclinacin social de J. A. Osorio Lizarazo. Pero nada de ello pareci suficiente para fundar una tradicin.
