Ciudades latinoamericanas: una utopía intelectual

Marcela Croce

Abstract


This paper analyzes Latin American utopian texts of the nineteenth and twentieth century, from Francisco de Miranda political-independentist proposal to Carlos Gamerro's novel Las islas, taking as axis of the travel Gisela Heffes's book Las ciudades imaginarias en la literatura latinoamericana. The central hypothesis is that fictional cities participate in the construction of major intellectual utopia, which is the very idea of Latin America.
