by Marcos Zangrandi

Released as a article-journal .


In two of his first novels, David Viñas sets the action during the occupation and subsequent exploitation of Patagonia and the Pampas in relationship with economic disputes and criminal action on the workers and the native populations in the end of the nineteenth century and early twentieth century. Through the analysis of the novels Cayó sobre su rostro (1955) and Los dueños de la tierra (1958), this paper explores the connection between this process (which appears as a backdrop in the stories), the possession of territories, and settlement of bourgeois family. Thus, this work seeks for the links between violence, the appropriation of territory, and the home and family relationships.
