Literary Journalism and Latin American Wars

Literary Journalism and Latin American Wars

Revolutions, Retributions, Resignations

Édité par Aleksandra Wiktorowska, Margarita Navarro Pérez, Mateus Yuri Passos

Born from colonialist and postcolonialist affronts and affinities with European and North American traditions, as well as from specific nationalistic needs, cultural as well as political, Latin American literary journalism is arguably a direct product and process of a people's volatile past. Be it a specific reportaje, testimonio or crónica, these reportages stoke more often than calm the political and social unrest frequently associated with the development of South and Central America. Practised by a number of prominent writers discussed here – Gabriel García Márquez, Rodolfo Walsh, Elena Poniatowska, Euclides da Cunha, Miguel Barnet, Antonio Callado, Leila Guerriero, Mário Neves, Judith Torrea, Tomás Eloy Martínez, Patrícia Campos Mello, Mario Vargas Llosa, as well as Ryszard Kapuscinski and Charles Bowden – Latin American literary journalism documents the continents’ many civil wars, revolutions, dictatorships, pogroms and cartel turf wars in the hope that readers today will learn from the past and avoid repeating it.
