Resumen

This article explores the implications of understanding the State of Arauco in Part One of Alonso de Ercilla's La Araucana (1569) as a republican form of political community. I begin by discussing how scholastic and humanistic tropes of barbarism employed in the opening two cantos give way to a description of a non-urban society that nevertheless has certain resemblances to the mixed government of Venice. The description of the Araucanian citizen militia intersects both with contemporary calls for reform of the Spanish military at the outset of the wars in Flanders and with the militaristic model of the republican state favoured by Niccolò Machiavelli. The decline of Araucanian military fortunes and virtue is analysed according to their transition from a policy of self-defence to one of aggressive expansion. This critique of republicanism also presents certain parallels to, and an implicit interrogation of, the Spanish model of empire.

Resumen

Prominent and proliferating readings locate mythical structures at the heart of Juan Rulfo's literary world. Notably, Raymond Bartra and María Luisa Ortega suggest that his works are structured around universal, timeless myths that embed individual experiences in a collective narrative. In this article, I argue that Rulfo's narrative technique is also connected with an extra-literary, eminently modern técnica: photographic technology. Rulfo's short story collection El llano en llamas (1953) is viewed through three intersecting critical frames: Walter Benjamin's writings on the modern ‘shock’ experience; the idea of the ‘knock-out’ in Julio Cortázar's theory of the short story; and Roland Barthes' notion of the photographic ‘punctum’. My contention is that an aesthetics of photographic shock underlies Rulfo's short stories, producing tears in the narrative fabric and invoking the reader's participation through particular, personal, contingent effects.
