Méndez, Mariela E. Alternative Mappings of Belonging: Non son de aquí by María do Cebreiro and Rasgado by Lila Zemborain. p. 637-658 Argentina

Resumen

This essay examines the travels of the poetic speakers in two poetry collections: by the Argentinean writer Lila Zemborain, and by the Galician poet and critic María do Cebreiro, to postulate a revision of notions of belonging in its intersection with gender and space. Rasgado (2006) is a sort of poetic diary written by Lila Zemborain, who resides in New York, responding as both insider and outsider to the World Trade Center attacks on 11 September 2001. María do Cebreiro's book, Non son de aquí (2008) similarly follows the path of a nomadic speaker intent on redefining the terms of her relationship to a physical space both alien and familiar. The purpose of this essay is to read these nomadic trajectories with an eye to unveiling how the speakers' negotiation of their sense of belonging to New York City or Galicia generates alternative, more dynamic ways of inhabiting gendered identity and space.

Omlor, Daniela. Mirroring Borges: The Spaces of Literature in Roberto Bolaño's 2666. p. 659-670 Argentina | Chile | México

Resumen

This article explores the meaning of space in Roberto Bolaño's 2666 by drawing on Foucault's notion of heterotopia. The use of mirrors as a literary device, together with the protagonist Amalfitano's experiments in geometry reinforce the interpretation of the fictional Mexican town of Santa Teresa as a heterotopic space, into which Bolaño attempts to inscribe the violence against women that occurred in the actual Ciudad Juárez. At the same time Bolaño recreates the literary space of Borges's ‘total book’ by making his novel an all-encompassing mirror of literature itself, reclaiming the importance of literature for representing the ambiguities of human existence.
