dc.description.abstract The novel, Trance, by the Puerto Rican writer Pedro Cabiya, uses the metaphor of the "sick country" to present a degraded and cruel society. In the first chapter, the reader will find the theoretical basis that consists of three texts that explain colonial relations between the colonized and the colonizers. These are Discourse on Colonialism by Aimé Césaire, Portrait of the Colonized by Albert Memmi, and The Wretched of the Earth by Frantz Fanon. The second chapter is a survey of the Puerto Rican literary canon and is based on the emergence of the metaphor and the different writers who took to reproduce it in their texts. Finally, chapters three and four constitute the analysis of the novel. en_US
