Dejen hablar al testigo

El gallo de Rosencof, los perros de Quijada


Rosa Maria Grillo    Università degli Studi di Salerno, Italia    


The fable seems to be the last frontier in the narration of the unspeakable, using irony, parody, allegory, the grotesque. Without renouncing the attributes of the genre of the fable – opposition between two characters/animals placed in a state of social inequality, ethical and educational purpose –, some authors such as Uruguayan Mauricio Rosencof and Chilean Anibal Quijada, both victims of the dictatorships of their respective countries, together with traditional forms of writing of testimony and denunciation have used the genre of the fable with added value of strong political content.
