Poéticas de la mirada en Frazadas del Estadio Nacional de Jorge Montealegre

María Luisa Fischer

Abstract


This study suggests a close reading of Jorge Montealegre's Frazadas del Estadio Nacional (2003), focusing on the poetics of gaze and visual metaphors. The dialectics of seeing and blindness is studied as the narrator's tool to overcome traumatic experiences of the past, connect it to the present, and rebuild his identity. Montealegre's literary testimony allows exploring a social experience recalled as an intimate and personal event. The text's poetic of gaze allows discerning the past in its complexities and silences.
