Abstract: This thesis is an examination of the narrative project of Augusto Roa Bastos in Hijo de Hombre. To understand the underlying tension of the Paraguayan society Roa Bastos portrays in his novel and the perennial bouts of violence from which it consequently suffers, Paraguay, as a totality, is viewed from the perspective of the village. From this vantage point emerge the two realities that comprise the Paraguayan experience: the official reality and the reality of the people. The official reality is seen as one of oppression and of indifference, attributes that are communicated to an archetypical figure of oppression, whereas the reality of the people is one marked by political, economic, and religious oppression and marginalization. In the novel, these realities take the form of distinct narratives that characterize the two main protagonists of Hijo de Hombre. The juxtaposition of these narratives reveals the fundamental tension of the novel, that of the breach between words and actions, between theory and practice. The attainment of a society devoid of the iniquities, the injustices, and the indifference to human suffering characteristic of the current Paraguayan reality represented in Hijo de Hombre can be achieved only through the actions of Man.
