[Autom. eng. transl.] The article proposes a journey through the Guatemalan narrative of the 20th century through four great names of that literature. It begins by pointing out the Europeanist orientation of Rafael Arévalo Martínez; continues with the conversion to the Mayan culture of Miguel Ángel Asturias; he examines the indigenist proposal of Mario Monteforte Toledo and ends by analyzing the conceptist solution of Augusto Monterroso, forced to such an election by the exuberance of his colleagues.
