LOS ALEMANES COMO PERSONAJES LITERARIOS EN LA LITERATURA COLOMBIANA CONTEMPORÁNEA
ResumThis paper will analyze the image of Germans in Colombian literature from the 1970s to the present day. Although the Germans played an important role in the colonization of the Kingdom of New Granada since the 16th century, we detected a greater presence of this figures with a more decisive role in the novels, in the 19th and especially the 20th centuries. Mainly soldiers, exiles, Jews, emigrants and Nazis of German origin left their traces in the literature of the Latin American country. To carry out the analysis we will present and comment on five novels written in the last 40 years focusing on characters of German origin or where Germans as literary figures have an influence on the development of the narrative. Both texts with historical characters and those with fictional characters will be treated.
