Summary: This essay explores some aspects of the Costa Rican identity through the analysis of two books:5 Temas en busca de un pensador, written by Carmen Naranjo Coto and Urbanoscopio by Fernando Contreras Castro. In this work, I will analyze the five expressions of speech commonly used by Costa Ricans, (Ahí vamos, Qué le vamos a hacer, A mí que me importa, De por sí e Idiay) that Naranjo developed in her essay. I will then examine how Contreras reflects these expressions as part of the daily life of Costa Ricans in his short stories. This allows us to closely examine the concept that Costa Ricans have about themselves and the world in relation to political, social and personal issues.
