Fuentes De La Imaginacion Historica En La Narrative De Marcio Veloz Maggiolo
This study examines four novels by Marcio Veloz Maggiolo. It reveals the fundamental sources used in these novels in constructing the concept of the 'historical imagination'. The traditional concept of 'official history' is rejected and gives rise to an eclectic view of the past that embraces scientific and philosophical knowledge, the voices of the marginalized 'other', folkloric manifestations, and the imaginative reflections of the characters and narrators. Memory functions as a means to approach the past and/or as a rhetoric that is connected to both the imagination and literary conventions. The analysis of the anthropological/historical imagination demonstrates that Veloz Maggiolo's treatment of the human condition, identity, the magical and myth differentiates it from that of other Latin American novelists; the narrative discourses of his novels demonstrates that they are conceived with archaeological techniques. The study finally shows that the historical concept sustained in such works stems from complex systems that include cultural, ideological, literary sources and 'illogical' convictions about time.

Alegoria e Ironia Bajo Censura en la Argentina del Proceso (1976-1983)
This text analyzes how rhetorical strategies such as allegory, irony and symbolism, were employed by dissenting Argentine writers and singer-songwriters under the military dictatorship that seized power on March 24th 1976. During the military coup in Argentina (1976-1983) a machinery of censorship was imposed. The state had a systematic plan of cultural repression and manipulation of public opinion. However, the dissident writers and lyricists examined in this study developed strategies of resistance that depended largely on allegory and irony. Some of the regime's plans created the opposite result to that which was desired originally. In the musical sphere, what the authorities wanted to quash was fostered: through avoiding the diffusion of a certain type of music, what was opened up was a space that was quickly occupied by dissident music.
