CHEN SHAM, Jorge. Impact of the revolution and how to tell it in El eco de los pasos : the opening sequence of Julieta Pinto´s novel. Káñina [online]. 2016, vol.40, n.2, pp.25-33. ISSN 2215-2636.

This essay's main objective, which analyses the novel El eco de los pasos (1979) written by the Costa Rican novelist Julieta Pinto, is to question the method in which literature presents historic events labeled as traumatic in the collective memory. The objective is to analyze the recovery of the facts of such not a recent History seen from a distant gaze. This is what Julieta Pinto offers about the Revolution of 1948 and to that end, the incipit is analyzed and framed in the novel's initial sequence. It is in these initial words where the rain motif unchains the memory and it activates the remembrances of the character Ernesto.

Keywords : Revolution of 1948; Julieta Pinto; El eco de los pasos; Costa Rican literatture; historic memory.
