THE WAR IN AFGHANISTAN IN “MUSICA PARA FEOS” BY LORENZO SILVA: BETWEEN DENUNCIATION AND TRIBUTE

  • Maguette Dieng

Abstract

Besides the theme of love, that of the war remains one of the most discussed in the literature. The war, this "fruit of the depravity of men", this "convulsive disease" (Diderot and D'alembert 1774, p. 700), continues to inspire even today the pen of many writers and humanists. Survivors themselves have often felt the need to witness the horror of their experience in different genres. As such, the First World War seems to have delighted the star to the Muses of Plato. For the only period from 1915 to 1928, two hundred and forty-six books of fighters were listed (Vintage 1929, pp. 10-13). In the same vein, the Spanish author Lorenzo Silva's Música para feos looks back on the war in Afghanistan between the United States and NATO forces on the Taliban. This article, based on a sociocritical perspective, studies the literary representation and symbolism that emerge from Silva's fiction.
