CUEVA LOBELLE, Alberto. Santa Anita: Farm, feud and territory in the nation imagined by the character Fernando Vallejo. Folios [online]. 2010, n.32, pp. 159-169. ISSN 0123-4870.
The farm of Santa Anita is an emblematic place constantly appearing in Fernando Vallejo's narrative. Through the memory of the farm, we see a worldview, a way of seeing the world linked to the region within a literary writing which constitutes a highly contextualized social practice. In this sense, we consider the imagination as an act committed to reality and therefore we will appraise the ideological and political changes of human and social agencies that literary writing set in motion. Therefore, we will analyze the text as a document in which the relationship with power is presented as a testimony of the existence of more or less opened relations of struggle and conflict.
