El lenguaje cinematográfico en la literatura de Juan José Saer y Antonio Di Benedetto: los casos de “Declinación y Ángel” y “Sombras sobre vidrio esmerilado”

Larisa Maite Colón Rodríguez


Benedetto and Saer participated in film projects as scriptwriters and as adapters of literary texts to film. Both authors were also film critics. This essay analyzes the stamp that film left on Di Benedetto’s short story “Declinación y Ángel” and on Saer’s “Sombras sobre vidrio esmerilado”, as reflected in the use of a certain type of slow and dilated language, the treatment of light and sound, their characters and the deployment of resources such as the use of sight and detailed descriptions.
