Abstract

TORRES, Vicente Francisco. Trópicos tristes y paradisíacos. LiminaR [online]. 2011, vol.9, n.1, pp. 15-27. ISSN 2007-8900.

This paper continues the author's reserch on how is percived in Latin American Spanish speaking literary circles the tropics as a topic. Given that this study would not becomplet without mentioning the writers called naturalists who saw the tropics as paradise itself, this paper also includes a dissentig opinion, that of the anthropologist Claude Lévy-Strauss, who never equated tropics whit paradise.

Keywords : naturalist writers; travelers; tropics; anthropologists; paradise.
