We also note in it, that the reality presented is in itself a kind of questioning of the truth found.

That is, the speech made to the linguistic expression. When this happens, can also become a conceptual element, which was very common in the discourse of the '60s and '70s, decades in which Latin America was plagued by fascist military dictatorships. It fought well, the reality with the magical sound feasible, on the one hand, and political reality with language and dislocated times the other. In other words, put into practice the social critique and examination of reality. But the most important, for literature, is in the expression of certain actual events across the border to the truth.

So, too, Asturias assumes a circular conception of time, the level of the Mayan ancestors. Things did not begin and end once but that every moment can be repeated. Such views appear in his stories, in the most normal. Thus,
