Diálogos literarios entre Francia y América Latina

Abstract : The dialogs between Central American literature and French literature did not arise recently, this dialogue has known his best moment in the XIX century. For instance, it suffices to recall the special bond of Rubén Darío with this kind of literature and the famous, and certainly invalid, Juan Valera’s complain of about the « mental galicismo ». Also, during the Modernist period, the one called « Prince of chronicle », Enrique Gómez Carrillo, has made Paris his center of creation and vital experience. Miguel Ángel Asturias and Luis Cardoza y Aragón have followed the path of their famous predecessors. Later, Nicaraguan poets have also developed strong ties with French literature as it was studied by Steven White in his book La poesía de Nicaragua y sus diálogos con Francia y los Estados Unidos (2009). Finally, during the second half of the XX century, this tradition made of dialogs didn’t know any breach, but knew several new meanings. Indeed, it’s the case with poets like the Salvadorian Roberto Armijo who, for political reasons, settles down in the seventies, in the French capital. In this paper, we will be focusing on esthetic and ideological meanings of those dialogs which have been established between writers from Central America and French literature.
