The Argentinian Writers of Paris

Los escritores argentinos de París

This book studies the stereotype of the Argentinian contemporary literature written in Paris, relating it to national literary corpus in its most original and constitutive elements. The work is divided into two parts: the first one outlines the Argentinian literary history from the beginning of the 19th century, to examine the travel importance in the shaping of national literary topics. Here , a relationship between travelling and the building of a self image is set up, as a result of two different views, that of the Europeans in Argentina and that of the Argentinians in Europe. The second part tries to explain the mutual understanding between Paris and the Rio de la Plata, due to the relationship of the respective elites.
Over this imaginary bridge, the monographic studies dedicated to Mario Goloboff, Luisa Futoransky, Arnaldo Calveyra, Juan José Saer, Silvia Baron-Supervielle and Hector Bianciotti are displayed.
The topic based persistence has a specific reason: literature is often the spine of the guiding fictions, that is to say, the basis of an imaginary universe which ensures all individuals the feelings of a nation , of population and of national identity.
