Resumen

DIAZ-DIEGO, JOSÉ; MEDIANERO SOTO, FRANCISCO JAVIER  y  ZAVALA CEPEDA, JOSÉ MANUEL. AUTHORSHIP AND OTHERNESS IN FRANCISCO ECHAURREN'S DIARIES FROM HIS VOYAGE AROUND THE WORLD. Atenea (Concepc.) [online]. 2019, n.520, pp.127-145. ISSN 0718-0462.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-04622019000200127.

Francisco Echaurren's diaries from his voyage around the world (1852 1857) are the oldest extant example of this genre from a Chilean traveler. In order to deepen our understanding of this work, we explore the social and political profile of the author, the diaries' structure and literary style, and the links between authorship and the representation of otherness through Echaurren's descriptions of local elites, servants, and guides. The diaries are characterized by their candor and intimacy, as they were written as a personal record of the journey but not meant to be published. We con clude by emphasizing the work's embodiment of modern values, such as a predilection for adventure, exoticism and the subject's centrality, as well as the scriptural strategies that reveal the author's class bias in the construction of otherness.

Palabras clave : Francisco Echaurren; Chile; travel diaries; elite; XIX century.
