Viajando en tiempos de guerra: terrorismo en los Andes peruanos

Lucía Galleno

Abstract


Sociopolitical violence and ideologies shape the way each generation understands and responds to their times. Enrique Rojas Paravicino in his short story “Por la puerta del viento” explores sociopolitical violence: terrorism and state terror in the history of modern Peru and its impact on the family. With a language that combines tenderness, dark humor, Paravicino produces deep awareness.  This essay examines Nirvardo Portugal’s experience of recovering the body of his beloved step-son during the “years of violence” in Peru (1980-2000).



Keywords
