GUAPACHA ROMERO, Marisela. Hernando Téllez and Eduardo Caballero: addressing violence in their Works. Humanidades (Montevideo. En línea) [online]. 2022, n.12, pp.213-241.  Epub 01-Dic-2022. ISSN 1510-5024.

This article proposes an understanding of the writer’s social commitment based on the Jean Paul Sartre’s approaches (1950) and Hispanic-American authors; such as Juan Goytisolo, Juan Fernando Taborda, Rubén Sierra and Carlos Osorio, both of them problematize this concept and reflect about the dynamics and conditions to which the writer is subject. Those conceptions about the writer’s social commitment enter into a dialogue with the figures of Hernando Téllez and Eduardo Caballero, their intellectual ideas, their diplomatic and journalistic work as well as the situations they had to face in order to make the decision of writing about the problematics of the country and their contributions to the Colombian literary field. Finally, there is an analysis of some selected stories from Téllez and also the Caballero’s novel Manuel Pacho, in the light of the proposed category. It will also be divided into three subcategories, guiding the analysis that will allow to evidence the writers’ commitment with the bipartisan armed conflict and the different contributions to the history and social transformation of the nation.

Palabras clave : Hernando Téllez; Eduardo Caballero; the writer’s social commitment; bipartisan armed conflict; Colombian literature.
