Literary mondays in Spanish. G. Wiener: Huaco portrait
We will discuss the biographic novel Huaco portrait (Huaco retrato) of the Peruvian author Gabriele Wiener (2021), wherein through two different histories that inevitably intertwine, the social consequences of colonisation are depicted. Through the first person narration we follow the author’s search of an identity that coincides with her discovery of both her own and the collective history of Peru. So, the story opens various themes we will be researching at our meeting: from colonisation and the history of the Inca to individual and collective identity and personal loss.
