Abstract [es]

La novela realista De amor y de sombra, por la autora Isabel Allende, describe como dos jóvenes luchan contra la “injusticia legalizada” en un lugar ficticio que alude a Chile bajo la dictadura de Augusto Pinochet. Un tema subyacente pero crucial en la obra es el olvido – individual, colectivo e impuesto. Por consiguiente demostraremos en este análisis cómo se presenta el olvido en la novela De amor y de sombra. La hipótesis que dirige nuestro estudio es que el olvido tiene un propósito mayor – destacar la importancia de recordar el pasado. Haciendo un análisis hermenéutico, nos apoyaremos en tres teorías sobre el olvido y el olvido social, resaltando ejemplos de personajes y acontecimientos de la novela. Por ende, en la conclusión se afirma la hipótesis y que la obra de Isabel Allende hace un llamamiento a recordar el pasado.

Abstract [en]

The realistic novel De amor y de sombra (Of Love and Shadows), by the author Isabel Allende, describes how a young couple fights against the “legalized injustice” in a fictive place that allude to Chile during the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet. An underlying but crucial theme in the novel is the oblivion – individual, collective and imposed. Therefore we will show by this analysis how the oblivion is presented in the novel De amor y de sombra. The hypothesis that guides our study, is that the oblivion has a greater purpose – to bring out the importance of remember the past. Through a hermeneutic method, we will found our analysis on three theories of oblivion and social oblivion when analyzing characters and occurrences in the novel. Hence, in the conclusion the hypothesis is confirmed, together with the fact that the novel by Isabel Allende makes a statement of the importance of remembering the past.
