Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


[Autom. eng. transl.] The members of the literary group that was born in Guatemala in 1968, known as Nuevo Signo, present several elements in common: almost all belong to the same generation, almost all come from the province and all have an interest in reflecting on destiny and nature of the Guatemalan man. In spite of the foreign origin, from the interior of the Republic, everyone meets in the capital and there they strengthen relations of friendship and intellectual exchange. From there they reflect on the contradictions of the country's modernity, in the dynamics between the center and the periphery, urban areas and rural villages, tradition and technological progress. In this paper I propose a reflection on the conception of modernity in the poetry of Nuevo Signo, its meaning in the social dynamics of Guatemala and its role in the political context of the Sixties and Seventies.
