A Journey to the Export Real
This chapter discusses the popularization of literary fictions that opposed the export-led model of growth in 1920. Literary writers reject European city life, and promote autochthony or regionalism to search of a more “simple” or“authentic” rural life. The chapter examines Colombian novelist José Eustasio Rivera’s novel, La vorágine (The Vortex ), to describe the destructive effect of frontier capitalism and to demonstrate the poverty of Latin American export economies. The novel provided a striking image of the ecological consequences of removing natural resources.
