DI GERONIMO, Miriam Noemí. Networks and constellations: perspectives around intellectual controversies in Latin America. Cuad. CILHA [online]. 2011, vol.12, n.1, pp.193-201. ISSN 1852-9615.

This work is aimed at reviewing the main controversies arisen in the 1970s, and the review is specifically focused on Arguedas-Cortázar. As it is known, these documents indicate the most urgent concerns of Hispanic American writers: role of the intellectual, indigenism, identity, commitment, etc. The fervency of disputes is precisely what induces the creation of networks and constellations among authors: inevitable alliances and antagonisms striving to obtain dominance take shape while the poetics of the new Latin American novel is under discussion. The field of power is debated around a new object defined by authors through its essential features of representation and narrative techiques of experimentation with the "revolution" of languages and world perspective.

Keywords : Networks and constellations; Cortázar/Arguedas; Intellectual controversies; Boom Latinoamerican novel.
