This study presents a critique of the culture of violence in Arturo Uslar Pietri's novels: "Las Lanzas Coloradas" and "El Camino de El Dorado". Drawing from cultural theories expounded principally by Spivak, Eagleton, William, Jameson, Massumi and Marcos, it demonstrates that the expression of violence in Uslar Pietri's fiction reveals multiple axes of exploitation of subject people (women, Indians and blacks) in colonial Venezuela and in the Latin American continent at large.
