La prensa neogranadina es un escenario privilegiado donde coinciden los balances acerca del estado de las bellas letras con los discursos de carácter programático que dibujan los rumbos que ha de seguir la literatura verdaderamente nacional. Unos y otros se encuentran atravesados por concepciones estéticas neoclásicas y románticas, que fundamentan las diferentes posturas acerca del valor y función de las manifestaciones literarias en el contexto específico de la república en vías de conformación. En este artículo revisaremos cuáles son específicamente los elementos neoclásicos y románticos subyacentes en los discursos a propósito de la literatura nacional y la literatura suramericana, publicados en la prensa literaria durante el periodo que va de 1836 a 1860. Además, demostraremos el valor que se otorga a géneros narrativos debido a su capacidad para ocuparse de temas vernáculos que forman al público lector al proveerlo de un discurso identitario. | The literary press in New Granada is a sample of the considerations that were made on beaux arts and the programmatical discourse that depict truly national literature’s ways. These are interwoven with esthetical neoclassic and romantic conceptions that support the different views on the value and purpose of literary manifestations in the context of a Republic still on the process of being established. The present study revises the neoclassic and romantic elements lying under national and South American literature discourses to be found in the literary press from 1836 to 1860. We also attempt to demonstrate the importance that is given to narrative genres because of their vernacular contents that educate the reader by giving him a discourse of identity.

In his narrative, Emar fictionalizes some of the artistic debates of the Chilean cultural life of his times, already discussed in his Writing on Art. Here, we will concentrate in the analysis of the fragment Night 3 of Umbral, which through the construction of a novella-drama (generic hybridism) shows simultaneously both the development of dramatic display as well as its critical reception by the public. This last, conformed by two antagonistic groups which represent the clash between official criticism and the emergence of the Chilean literary Avant-Garde: the conflict between traditionalism or the "metaphysics of tradition" (Jauss) which embodies official criticism and what Emar would call "live art". This article seeks to demonstrate that through the utilization of a parody, the Emarian conception of artistic tradition can overcome the classic controversy between the classics and the modernists.
