On September 11, 1973, Chile's General Pinochet led a quick and brutal military coup ousting the Allende government. Ignacio Lopez-Calvo argues that this event shaped Chilean narrative into two structural forms: liberationist narrative-cathartic, journalistic testimonies that provide models for revolutionary behaviour against authoritarianism and demystifying narrative, which uses the events of 1973, as well as the colonial aspirations of European countries, as a "Paradise Lost" backdrop in which the charaters of this type of fiction are able to create theor non-political realities that become models of democratization.
