La construction d’un imaginaire environnemental dans trois romans hispano-américains : la Vorágine (1924), Los pasos perdidos (1953), La casa verde (1965) : une étude écopoétique

Abstract : Since the Independences and until the middle of the 20th century, Latin American literature was largely consolidated in the wake of its relationship with nature. Different currents and concepts such as novela de la tierra are anchored in this relationship. It is in this context that the novelas de la selva appear, mainly in the area around the Orinoco and Amazonian basins. We have based our work on an ecocritical analysis of La Vorágine (1924), Los pasos perdidos (1953) and La casa verde (1965), a framework that is not frequently used in the Spanish-speaking area. Through the study of three ecological tropes (destruction, preservation and sustainability) and a theoretical framework that challenges the classic concept of the Nature/Culture relationship (based in particular on the work of Philippe Descola and Bruno Latour), we will examine the relevance of ecocritical analysis as far as those three novels are concerned, in the light of a growing awareness for ecology.
