CROTTI, Norma Edith. Una mirada desde el asombro: La crónica en la zona de frontera. Cuad.Sur, Let. [online]. 2005, n.35-36, pp. 201-212. ISSN 1668-7426.

The articles compiled by H éctor Tizón in Tierras de frontera (2000), those written for Panorama [1966-1967] by Rodolfo Walsh and those published as Aguafuertes Patagónicas by Roberto Arlt that compose the book En el país del viento. Viaje a la Patagonia (1934) record impressions of border-lands, always in explicit astonishment. The image of the chronicler that searches a city looking for the longed-for chronicle yields its place to the sharp observer who, in the border-lands of nord-west, nord-east and south of Argentina, penetrates the space, the incommensurability of inland scenery, the relation between the inhabitants and the environment, felt as primitive and mysterious, to recover images, practices and accounts of events from anonymous voices. These voices that constitute collective identities testify to the representation of the world, the construction of the social fabric and the experience interwoven between seeing and saying as ways of knowledge. The chronicler focuses attention on language to investigate the interpretation of reality and the identity of subjects that is shaped between knowledge and know-how, but keeps on searching for what actions say. Socially and historically-built pieces of knowledge, myths and beliefs come to light and reveal conflicts and discussions for their recognition in the chronicle, a genre in the border-land.
