dc.description.abstractEsta tesis propone que el concepto de la justicia conforma un elemento fundamental e ineludible en la literatura latinoamericana. Siguiendo las ideas planteadas por filósofos sociopolíticos de la actualidad tales como Axel Honneth, Martha Nussbaum y Amartya Sen, la justicia se define en este estudio como la creencia en la igualdad de todos los seres humanos basada en el imperativo de reconocer y respetar la dignidad del otro y admitir el compromiso necesario de luchar a favor de tal dignidad para que se pueda gozar de la vida. Para comprobar esta perspectiva de la justicia y en base a un acercamiento crítico culturalista, la tesis se enfocará en textos representativos de la narrativa breve del argentino Esteban Echeverría (1805-1851), el nicaragüense Rubén Darío (1867-1916), el chileno Baldomero Lillo (1867-1923), el mexicano Juan Rulfo (1918-1986), el colombiano Gabriel García Márquez (1928), la puertorriqueña Rosario Ferré (1938) y la uruguaya Cristina Peri Rossi (1941).en_US
dc.description.abstractThis thesis proposes that the concept of justice defines a fundamental and inescapable element of Latin American literature. Following the ideas posed by current sociopolitical philosophers such as Axel Honneth, Martha Nussbaum and Amartya Sen, this study defines justice as the belief in the equality of all human beings based in the pressing need to recognize and respect the dignity of others and admit the necessary obligation to fight in favor of such dignity so that one is able to enjoy life. In order to prove this perspective of justice, and based upon a critical culturist approach, this thesis will focus on representative texts of the short narrative tradition of the Argentine Esteban Echeverría (1805-1851), the Nicaraguan Rubén Darío (1867-1916), the Chilean Baldomero Lillo (1867-1923), the Mexican Juan Rulfo (1918-1986), the Colombian Gabriel García Márquez (1928), the Puerto Rican Rosario Ferré (1938) and the Uruguayan Cristina Peri Rossi (1941).en_US
