AMARO CASTRO, Lorena. Ways of leaving home or how to escape the Ogre: filiation stories in recent Chilean literature. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2014, n.29, pp.96-109. ISSN 0716-5811.

During the last decade in the Southern Cone, a vast production of fictional and testimonial literature and film has been produced with stories that address childhood in two different perspectives: either the political experience of childhood, or conversely, the political experience from a child's perspective, as a means to recount the years of dictatorship. Recent Chilean narrative approaches the subject from positions that are not linked directly to the violation of human rights or trauma, but which are touched by what the critic Jaime Hagel called in the eighties, "the era of the ogre". This article will analyze the interweavings between filiation and citizenship, and memory and enunciation, thus proposing a reading of narratives in which the child travels taking, both literally and epistemically, the back seat of the car.

Palabras clave : Filiation literature; Chilean dictatorship; childhood.
