CHAVARRIA CASTRO, Baruc. The Autobiography: Narrative Model of Picaresque Novel in La colina del buey (1972), by José León Sánchez. Káñina [online]. 2019, vol.43, n.3, pp.67-76. ISSN 2215-2636.

The novel Picahueso (1971), the second one written by José León Sánchez and later titled La colina del buey (1972), has been associated with the narrative model of Spanish picaresque. This aspect, however, has not been studied in detail. The structural characteristics determined by the theory about the picaresque genre are recognizable in J. L. Sánchez's narrative, among them the most important one: autobiography. Nevertheless, the concept of what is considered autobiographical is handled in a different way, turning the writing of the self into the writing of the other; into an otobiography.

Keywords : Costa Rican literature; comparative literature; deconstruction; otobiography..
