Sumario:This paper aims to identify the changes in the representation of violence that have occurred for more than one century in the literature on armed conflict in Colombia. This identification will be done in relationship with the historical, political, social and cultural frameworks that are encompassed within the different literary works. The goal of this project is to acknowledge the ways of narrating and representing war within the literary texts, as well as learning the role of the characters that suffer directly from the violent act in these productions. Additionally, we will pay close attention to the analysis of each character’s enunciative position within the re-signification of the war stories, with the purpose of establishing which are the discourses of each of the parties involved.
