Description

The Latin American novel of dictatorship has long constituted a "subgenre" of Latin American historical fiction. (1) The mid-nineteenth-century novel Amalia, by Jose Marmol, is frequently cited as the very first work of this sort, based on the dictatorship of Juan Manuel Rosas in Argentina. A long list of novels has followed, including Miguel Angel Asturias's El senor presidente (1946), Alejo Carpentier's El recurso del metodo (1974), Gabriel Garcia Marquez's El otono del patriarca (1975), Augusto Roa Bastos's Yo el Supremo (1974), and Luisa Valenzuela's Cola de lagartija (1983), just to name a few. MarioVargas Llosa has twice forayed into this genre: first, in his novel Conversacion en La Catedral (1969), based on the dictatorship of Manuel Odria (during the years 1948-1956 in Peru); second, in his novel La fiesta del chivo (2000), based on the dictatorship of Rafael Leonidas Trujillo in the Dominican Republic from 1931-1961. In an interview with Enrique Krauze, Vargas Llosa explains his motivation for writing La fiesta del chivo: Yo estuve en Republica Dominicana [en 1975] cerca de ocho meses y oi muchisimas anecdotas sobre un tema que parecia inevitable en todas las conversaciones con dominicanos: la era de Trujillo. Tambien lei algunos libros sobre este personaje, sobre la conspiracion para acabar con el, sobre la vertiginosa represion. Y de todo eso quiza lo que mas me impresiono fue la conducta de personajes como el general Roman, conspiradores importantisimos que hicieron fracasar la conspiracion. Por que fracaso? Porque los principales conspiradores quedaron paralizados por lo que habian hecho ... Trujillo seguia dentro de ellos, vivo aunque el cadaver estaba alli. (22).
