ESSAY ON: Esteban Echeverria/The Slaughter House

Number of Pages 3

This research paper: A 3 page paper that discusses the use of language in Esteban Echeverria’s “The Slaughter House,” which portrays the political situation in Argentina under the rule of Manuel de Rosas, a “Federalist war hero” (Webb). In describing the effect of Rosas’ rule, Echeverria creates an extended metaphor, a Slaughter House, located “’in the southern part of Buenos Aires, on a huge lot’” (Echeverria cited by Webb). Examination of the literary devices employed by Echeverria demonstrates the way in which he uses this primary metaphor to create an allegory that dramatized the conflict between civilization and barbarism that characterized nineteenth century Argentina. Bibliography lists 2 sources.
