Abstract:

International scholars explore the connections between Juan Carlos Onetti, one of the foundational figures of the 1960s "Boom" in Latin American literature, and other relevant writers and texts from Latin America and beyond. The essays reflect a range of perspectives, including influence, intertextuality, and gender studies (representation, feminism, masculinity), and focus on topics as diverse as urban settings prostitution, male fights, and fat and thin characters. This interplay results in a complex and refined picture of an author who from the beginning of the present decade has attracted much attention from academics, the media, and translators.
