La escritura de Juan José Saer : la tercera orilla del río

Abstract : My thesis is about "Juan José Saer's writing : the third shore of the river". I propose taking advantage of a regional space as a material and symbolic reality. Running my eyes over the litarary discourse of several Latin American writers of the 20th century, I analyse it as a territory in which various passages relate a psychic and imaginary space. In consequence, in Juan José Saer's (Santa Fe 1937-Paris 2005) literary work, I explored, supported by a bibliography of literary theory and criticism produced over his work, the following aspects : 1. The foundation of the "zone" and the "city", representations of territories of fiction. The hatch of a saga and development of characters and places. 2. The relationship between the construction of imaginary territories from other writers (Onetti, Faulkner) and Roberto Arlt's rabid city. 3. The "death of the author" in the most radical narrative experience of Saer's writing. The intersection of Argentine history, fiction stories and analysis of the violence in his short stories and novels. 5. The landscape of the area related, on one hand with the natural and mythical space and on the other hand with personal experience. 6. Linkages with the modern literary traditions : Borges, Joyce, the Nouveau Roman and Antonio di Benedetto.
