Le rapport entre fiction et réalité dans l’oeuvre de Tomás Eloy Martínez ou le pouvoir des mots dans les rapports de force

Abstract : Tomás Eloy Martínez, an Argentinian journalist and novel writer, rewrites the History of Argentina through his work. He rewrites this history by playing with words - by manipulating collective History, manipulating the Other, its own history and identity, even its physical reality - . Thus the line between fiction and reality vanishes progressively and the power of language (which allows for dominating the Other) is expressed as a “ dual of narrative versions ” between fiction and History. The author creates alternative realities, based mainly on the subjectivity of the perception that characters can have of the world surrounding them. Language is therefore a tool for power, but the power struggles in Martínez’s work also show that the object of this very power often is the body of characters who are victims of a certain number of torturers who persecute them in order to dominate or annihilate them.
