Abstract

The development of the historical novel in Latin America in the last quarter of the twentieth century took as its theme in literary theory new perspectives on history. Indeed, the multitude of voices that emerged were a difficult corpus to address a single optic, so soon a theoretical discussion of this literary phenomenon began: New Chronicle of Indian, New Historical Novel, Novel Neobarroca or Fiction Archive were the names that were the main theoretical approaches that care of this problem were made. Thus, within this field we insert our discussion about ways of history, which opens from these new critical discourses that broke from the literature on the official story of our past. With a look transdisciplinary and collecting those reported by the New Chronicle Indies boarded novels El arpa y la sombra (1979) by Alejo Carpentier and Los perros del paraíso (1983) by Abel Posse, because we want to rescue the game and against discursive that counterhegemonic done on the des-cOVERAGE America to rescue and put the basis of the historical imaginary constructed by official accounts, making these literary expressions in a way against history.
