Los hombres sin rostro: Escritura y racismo en Desengaño y reparo de la Guerra del Reino de Chile de Alonso González de Nájera

One of the keys to understanding Alonso González de Nájera’s Desengaño y reparo de la guerra del Reino de Chile appears when one realizes that the power displayed by the text denies any sign of humanity in the Indian, by making him an inhuman, monstrous and barbaric character. In this part, the writing gives preference to the power of killing the biological danger, embodied by...

Revisitando la literatura chilena: "Sigue diciendo: cayeron / Di más: volverán mañana

The figures of radical otherness in Chilean literary space, conceived here as the disquieting site of the irruption of the other destined to be forgotten in analysis, memory and history, are multiple. I will limit myself on this occasion to showing one of these sites. It is perhaps that which gives testimony in the most hyperbolic fashion to the sacrificial character of the myth...

El genio femenino y la autoridad literaria: "Luisa Molina

This work studies the contribution of Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda to the development of the Spanish American essay through one of her journalistic articles: "Luisa Molina" (1857). By using an unknown 19th century woman poet as an example of the female genius, Gómez de Avellaneda explores and revises the concept of genius as it relates to female creativity.

La locura nace en las Islas Afortunadas

The study of three key Renaissance works -In Praise of Folly by Erasmus, Utopia by Thomas Moore and The Abbey of Thélème in Gargantua by Rabelais- emphasize the close relationship between utopic thinking and the tradition of laughter.  Taken together they articulate a world vision that is free and critical, profoundly conscious of a temporality that comes through in the artistic...

Reflexiones sobre el trasfondo político en el juicio contra Sócrates

This paper, written from the perspective of the History of Political Ideas, analyses the hypothesis of a political background in the trial for impiety held against Socrates in 399 BC. The various existing sources that deal with the topic and those that contribute to put it into context are examined in order to accede to this object of study. Given the lack of testimonies that...

Donde nadie ha estado todavía: Utopía, retórica, esperanza

This is a study of the relationships between utopia, distopia, truth and rhetoric. The critical exploration of the repertory of literary figures of the human overcoming of borders (Bloch) makes visible what is silenced and hidden by modern reflection on utopia: the revulsive signification of woman in the history of thought and imagination of what does not yet exist anywhere...

After being involved in a scandalous erotic relationship, Puebla was accused of the crime of rape and condemned to hanging. Presumed divine intervention lead to his pardon after which a new life began for him, marked by...

Escenificaciones de la hibridez en el discurso de la conquista: Analogía y comparación como estrategias translatológicas para la construcción de la otredad

Using diverse post-modern and post-colonial theories, the present essay aims to examine how the Discovery and the Conquest of America was an anthropological, ethnological, philosophical, cultural, religious, artistic, economical, and historical gigantic ‘translation’ process.  On the one hand, the Spaniards create a new culture and civilisation and are the true initiators of the...

DELEITES Y SINSABORES DE LA COMIDA Y EL COMER: SITUANDO EL TEMA

We propose interests and reflective perspectives in relation to food as a symbolic world, that is to say, as a set of forms and meanings. A plate of food is conceptualized as a Trinity in which food item, cook and diner are indispensable. We propose a social aesthetic psychology treatment of this topic, which is concerned with the complex relationships between subjects and...

Parra, pero también Quino: Reescritura de una obsesión

The writing of this new exploration of the signifier death in the work of Nicanor Parra gives testimony to at least three «weddings against nature»: the encounters of the well of antipoetry with the well of Lascaux, of Parra with Quino and of the critic with the butler

NOTAS SOBRE LA NOVELA NEGRA CHILENA: SINTOMÁTICA DE UNA CRISIS LITERARIA A TRAVÉS DE DOS AUTORES REPRESENTATIVOS

Chilean literature of the last two decades has the sign of a phenomenon. Hard boiled detective fiction has penetrated the editorial world as never before. Many of the latest writers have been flirting with the structures and themes of detective stories, they have recognized the power of this kind of narrative and the usefulness of its tools. Some of them have become habitual...

EL EMPRESARIADO MERCANTIL DE CONCEPCIÓN A FINES DEL SIGLO XIX

This article analyzes the formation of a community of commercial entrepreneurs in Concepción at the end of the nineteenth century, when the expansion the regional economy underwent from the 1850s reached its culmination. The main source for this study is Registros de Comercio, which recorded the creation of all sorts of partnerships. We have established that the dominant...

LA CASA QUE FLOTA

This essay “La casa que flota” examines, on the one hand, how the writing of Manuel Ramos Otero has deconstructed and re-articulated the privileged images of the pater familia and the house, both in his short stories and in his poems. On the other hand, it analyses which are the alternative spaces and characters that are proposed in the writing of this Puerto Rican author from...

ALGUIEN VOLÓ SOBRE EL NIDO DEL BIRD (UN ESTUDIO DE LOS MANUSCRITOS TEMPRANOS DE EL OBSCENO PÁJARO DE LA NOCHE)

The writing process of El obsceno pájaro de la noche was undertaken by José Donoso during more than ten years. In this time the author had to struggle heavily to give the novel its final shape. The most difficult problem he faced in the process was to unify two independent narratives that constitute the matrix of Bird, as he called his novel. One of them is Humberto Peñalozas...

DE HISPANOAMERICA A LATINOAMERICA: FRATERNIDADES, CONFLICTOS Y OLVIDOS DE LA LENGUA DE LA COMUNIDAD

This paper studies, from a philosophic/literary perspective, a certain period of the cultural history of Spanish America, within which the linguistic community of the region seemed to be fragmented. At the end of the XIXth Century that break or division is already apparent and it shows itself in the self-conscious adherence to the socalled “latinity” (from Spanish América to...

TRAUMA, MEMORIA Y OLVIDO EN UN ESPACIO FICCIONAL: UNA LECTURA A ESTRELLA DISTANTE

This article examines Roberto Bolaño´s Estrella distante (1996), in order to study the way in wich a fictional text produces individual and collective memory. My idea is to use Hugo Vezzetti´s suggestion of the three variants of memory as an axis to analize how Bolaño constructs a narrative that aims at the critical revision of the Chilean past. Particularly the recent past: the...
